My beloved Fighting Illini became the first #1 seed to go down in the 2021 NCAA Basketball Tournament, abruptly ending their best season in well over a decade.
I am still a bit in shock after watching their loss, especially since I really believed they had a legitimate shot at winning it all this year. Going down in the round of 32 just doesn't seem right.
That's what "win or go home" is all about though. I gotta give credit to Loyola Chicago for being the better team in the game. Being from Illinois, I guess this will be the team I'll be rooting for going forward.
