Bruce Weber has soften his stance after criticizing his performance and the team’s performance Wednesday night.

Weber was not happy with the 67-62 loss to Purdue. The Illini have lost seven of the past eight games, and there’s a chance the team could miss the NCAA tournament for the third time in Weber’s 9-year tenure at the school.

He has been taking heat from fans who want Illinois to compete for the Big Ten Championship. If things don’t turn around, he could be let go after the season.

“I spoke out of frustration following another difficult loss,” Weber said Thursday in a prepared statement. “I am disappointed in myself, as I said, for not developing a culture of toughness with our team up to this point in the season.”

“As I told our team (Wednesday) night,” Weber continued, “we have a lot to play for over these last five regular season games as well as the Big Ten tournament. We still have an opportunity to make the NCAA tournament, and I’m looking forward to practice today and working with our players to help us reach that goal.”
