BROWN ON THE MARCH 6 LOSS TO OHIO STATE THAT ENDED ILLINOIS'S PERFECT SEASON I've never been that angry in my life. I went home and watched Bad Santa, something that would get all that anger out of me. I laughed it out. Then I got a massage at BodyWork here in town. [The loss] was a big hurt to us. We expected to be 30-0 going into the tournament, but things happen. You can't be perfect.

ON BREAKING HIS JAW LAST YEAR I was on a liquid diet, and that was tough. Soup and milk shakes for a month. I like a T-bone steak, well done.

ON BEING UNDERESTIMATED Early on people doubted us because Illinois hasn't been to the Final Four since 1989. We're trying to change that. --Reported by Julia Morrill
