With the NCAA tournament right around the corner, I had planned on writing a post this week about our chances to make the tournament, and how far we could go if we made it. Well, the news out of Champaign today only deepens the frustration of the Illini Nation as we look at the 2006-07 season. This time, though, a life is at stake. Brian Carwell and Jamar Smith were in a car accident last night. Smith has already left the hospital, but Carwell is in critical condition as a write this. My prayers go out to him and his family.
