For fans of the University of Illinois basketball team, the primary goal has always been winning.
From Harry Combes' Whiz Kids to Lou Henson's Flying Illini to Bruce Weber's current class, success has always been determined by wins and losses, Big Ten titles and NCAA tournament success.
Naturally, fans at times cannot resist lamenting on the more superficial areas of the game.

Fans routinely place uniform design in the crosshairs of their critical targets. Maybe it's because uniforms help define the Fighting Illini "brand" to fans across the country.
