Illinois lost 64-61 to Iowa in the 2012 Big Ten Tournament on Thursday afternoon, ending whatever hopes the Illini had for a run to the NCAA tournament. The Illini slumped badly down the stretch this season, losing nine of their last 10 games. Speculation about Bruce Weber's job security has run rampant for some time now, and many expect that he will not be retained.
A meeting with athletic director Mike Thomas is coming some time in the near future, but according to Stu Durando of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, it won't be on Thursday night.
