The inside dish on the Illini
Regular readers of this blog are not strangers to Mark Tupper of the Decatur Herald & Review
. Rarely does a day go by when Illini Wonk doesn't reference something from his column
or his blog
or both. Tupper has forgotten more about the Illini basketball team than most natinoal sports writers who have spent the last six weeks scrambling to figure out just what this team from fly-over country is all about.
Along with writing a column every day and frequently updating his blog, Tupper somehow found time for an interview with Big Ten Wonk that you can read here
. For Illini fans, it's worth your time.
