In case you missed the story of my ILLINI clock, I was given this fine timepiece for Christmas by a friend who knew I was an ILLINI fan.  From the day I hung the clock in my office, my ILLINI went from 12-2 to 12-10 and fell (like a rock) out of the AP Top 25.  It was then that I decided to add a black slash to the clock (see pic below) and said it wouldn't be taken off until they won a meaningful game.

After two big wins against ranked opponents (Michigan State and Iowa) over the past week, I can now say the clock is free of any markings and ready for the Big Ten Tournament this week.  Who's with me?!?!
