We are, well, Illini guys. Just five regular guys in the middle of their professional careers who are diehard Illini fans.
Coming from different backgrounds, professions and hometowns, we somehow met and, connected by our love for Illini sports, became fast friends over the years. We decided that we wanted to start an independent multi-media portal that would focus on the contents and news that truly matter to Illini fans. And, we wanted to bring the content in ways that had not been used much for Illini sports.
We could have done this the easy way by becoming a local site for a multi-national corporation. However, we didn’t want to be bound by limitations of these national chains. So, we decided to build the whole darn thing from the ground up so that it would be built just the way that diehard Illini fans would want to see.
We are fortunate to have a talented and growing team of sports journalists, recruiting analysts and student interns. Our coverage will grow beyond basketball and football as our website grows. We hope that you will join us on this special journey with this website that truly is by and for Illini fans. We will have our growing pains as we grow our website, but are excited to present to you a site that Illini fans everywhere deserve.
Please note that our company LMBC Sports, LLC, including our Illini Guys website, is an independent media organization, and is not affiliated with the University of Illinois.
