That being said....Landers would be a great pick up for the Illini !!

There's a lot of tangible info on recruiting on this website. Indy's post about the staff getting an in-home with Ayo today, for example.

Lots of people -- Cash included -- have provided a lot of really interesting and useful information. It's what makes this board better than its competitors.

The problem is, too many people aren't patient enough to let these kids go through the recruiting process. They want answers now. Even if it means scooping the kid.


Agree wholeheartedly that Nolley would be a fantastic get. Hope he comes here. We'll know for sure in about 7 weeks.

Sorry Cash. Some of the posters on this site piss me off.

First off let me say I love what Cash brings to the board and really, really hope he/she decides to stick around. 2nd I do think there are people on the board who complain about getting info and that's very annoying.
That said the poster Cash is calling out I THINK was questioning Cash's source's reasoning, not Cash. I read it as "What would happen that a Cash's source would give the okay to spread the info on a message board?" or "Who is this person that they're in a position to give the okay to give out the info?" Not "Why would Cash think it's okay to give out this info" Maybe I read it wrong.

You have way too much common sense and logic to post here.

Seems like exactly the kind of guy we want to run off.
The problem is when big mouthed posters get privy to accurate inside information on this board, they run in somebody's DM's or go find a players Twitter feed! That's when Posters, Illini fans more specifically, should ashamed of themselves!

these are prime offseason hell board conditions. I hope something happens so we have something to discuss. Shall we start a countdown to Halloween?

Drama: Poster makes positive statement/prediction wrt Illini (especially recruiting). The majority of fellow posters thank the poster for the "insider" information, while the minority questions the validity or motivation of the information. The original poster feels offended and threatens to leave the board.

Drama: Poster makes negative statement/prediction wrt Illini (especially recruiting). The majority of fellow posters question the validity and motivation, often mentioning that people should not post information as "facts," "definitive," or "matter of fact," while the minority thanks the poster for the "insider" information. The original poster feels offended and threatens to leave the board.

=

More Drama: Ensuing discussion follows with strong views on the correct "protocol" of posting, who should be allowed to post on this board or not, who should be allowed to criticize a post or not, often taking completely meaningless votes on who should stay or who should leave this board.

Have heard later this evening. Chin and BU will be there for sure, unsure if Walker or OA will be in attendance.

Why in the world would an anonymous post on a school-specific message board steal a kid's thunder? Do you think other coaches are going to stop recruiting him because cash said he's going to Illinois? Would other fan bases even care about what one Illini fan posts? This is nonsense.

They'd take both - Underwood has said he's always going to recruit wing heavy. Whether both would want to come is a question but I think BU could sell it. If he and Chin could sell Ayo's people on it.
(Assuming Ayo is coming here.)

Hmmm, Gophers new to chasing THT & quietly managed an in-home already.

Another vote here for Cash to stay. A simple "Please dude". Count your votes!

Michigan State strikes for the fifth time in the 2018 class with Rivals150 wing Aaron Henry. Versatile and blue-collar wing. Great group

THT unlikely to come here as of right now.

I am hearing staff is trying to get Ayo, Nolley, Sow, Conditt.

Should be interesting to see how this plays out.

Thank you. Had not seen that. I checked Henry's social medias and did not see anything.

MSU now out of rides.
