Yeah, I like the positive vibes that seem to be floating around. Maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part.

There is a bit of urgency between Finke and THT. We will probably only take 1. If one knows that UI is where they want to be, it is dangerous to wait.

I strongly believe one will verbal this month.

They each have there strengths, both would be good in the system.

I would prefer THT, just because I don't want him at NW.

I much prefer THT but NW feeling confident too. Got a CB Friday from a national guy (not a B1G or NW writer) and they want him as bad as we do.

He recently said that his top five (don't know if that means final five) are tOSU, Oregon, Vanderbilt, Notre Dame and Illinois. I do believe NW was recruiting him at one time but one side or the other cooled off.

Finke

I prefer Finke and I think his opinion of the Illini has vastly improved since the hire and meetings with Underwood.

Ayo and find another Top big somewhere, other than Conditt? THT is good, just not sure him or Finke fit the needs moving forward,

Finke is a perfect fit for Underwood's system. Heck THT is a great fit too.. Not sure if you can take both because they are looking for an athletic SF type too.
