Sorry, that ain't happenin any time soon at Illinois. We just need guys who will consistently make plays. They don't have to be super-stars. Just good, solid players who get the job done. Now we will of course need an occasional play-maker like Jenkins, Mikel, etc. to come along on offense if we want to have some great seasons.
