Senior Jordan Taylor scored 16 points in his final home game, helping No. 14 Wisconsin beat Illinois 70-56 on Sunday in both teams’ regular season finale.
While he may likely lose his job after this season, Weber is not the only problem at Assembly Hall.
Deshaun Thomas scored 19 points and No. 8 Ohio State regained its shooting touch, rolling over Illinois 83-67 on Tuesday night to remain in the thick of the Big Ten race.
If this pathetic, blubbering mess of failure and self-flagellation is to be somehow disinfected, it will take some real soul-searching before a reconstruction plan can be created.
Bruce Weber should be allowed to finish this season, both because he deserves it and also because the Illinois basketball program deserves it, too.

Northwestern’s formula for Sunday’s 74-70 win against Illinois was a familiar one: stick to a guard-heavy six-man rotation, and hit open shots.
Brandon Paul shook off a poor-shooting game to score 18 points, including two free throws with 45 seconds left that gave Illinois the lead in a 42-41 victory over No. 9 Michigan State on Tuesday night.
