Let’s not beat around the bush here. The Big Ten is a wholly different conference this week than it was last week. Kelvin Sampson has been given a $750,000 buyout to walk away from Indiana University with no strings attached. As Illinois fans, there is a feeling here that is purely visceral, given the state of the ’07-’08 campaign. I’d like to hear you sound off about it here.

Please.

Discuss.
