  Illini wonk...Big Ten blog of the week?
Illini wonk got some conference recognition today with a link from Big Ten Wonk. I think it's fitting that, along with Hawkeye Hoops, the two best teams in the Big Ten this year have blogs. Along with Big Ten Wonk, I would welcome those from other schools in the conference.

For those of you visiting from the rest of the conference, it's good to have you here. If it's your first time, you may want to start with this post, the 411 on Illini Wonk.

For those of you who are fans of other teams in the conference, you may want to take note of what the Illini are doing for the conference this year. With their three-guard, fast-paced style of play, the Illini are Helping the Big Ten's image. I hope you become a regular visitor. Rest assured that I am a "company" guy. I always pull for the Big Ten when the Illini aren't playing. For instance, I was thrilled to see Wisconsin beat an overrated Alabama team tonight in Madison.

So welcome to Illini Wonk. I hope you enjoy your stay and make liberal use of the comments section at the end of this, and every other, post.

Go Illini!
Great to see another team blog in the Big Ten. Hopefully I can keep up while I'm on vacation. I'm very excited by the possibility of 15-1 Iowa at 18-0 Illinois on Jan 20 (although not entirely optimistic).
Thanks. I'm looking foward to that game as well and wouldn't be surprised if those records held. I've also circled February 20 in Carver-Hawkeye arena as our toughest remaining game on the schedule. I know it won't be as easy as our last trip there.

I think it's due to South Dakota's proximity to Iowa that the Hawkeyes have always been my second-favorite team in the Big Ten. Whatever the reason, I hope you come in second in the conference this year!

Thanks for the link. I've now got yours posted. Good luck this season.
