No other B1G schools or "cold weather" schools. Amazing what Small continues to do for UI>

Thomas Pieters picked for the Europe Ryder Cup team. Like Small needs more recruiting help!

Here is a great quote from the story about Small's 12th Illinois PGA win:

“For as not well as I thought I played, I finished second again,” Malm said. “That’s three in five years. But like I said here three years ago, some day he’s going to retire and seconds turn into firsts.”

Coach getting a nice raise.

Quote:
Fresh off the Illini men’s golf team’s second consecutive national semifinal appearance, coach Mike Small is slated for a hefty raise.

Small would receive a new six-year contract that runs through August 2022 under a proposed contract to be considered by UI trustees on Thursday.

He would receive $308,000 this year, including a $300,000 base salary that would rise by 5 percent a year, and $8,000 a year in lieu of a university vehicle. He currently earns $201,900, according to the UI’s “gray book” of academic and administrative salaries from this past school year.

He will get a $100,000 retention bonus if he remains through August 2019, under the terms of his previous contract, and another $100,000 if he stays through 2022.

First event of the season starts tomorrow. For those wondering about the lineup, 2 frosh - Baumgarten and Feagles join the 3 returnees. 2 other Illini - redshirt frosh Gold and our new Belgian Tadiotto will play as individuals.

Shaky first round, but typical Illini bounce back today. Tied with Purdue as they are on the final 9 holes.

Great start today, only team under par and a 6 shot lead. Freshman Brian Baumgarten is tied for first place after posting a 65.

Really impressive. Thought it would take some time for this team to jell, maybe not.

Stress on really. Loaded field and we're blowing them away. Un-real.

Must have felt sorry for the other teams. Great first two days, today, not so much. Definitely a very impressive win, especially after losing two senior AAs.

Love the poaching from the state of IN. He looks like a Danielson, Pieters, Detry clone; and we know how they turned out. A good get by Coach Small.

Werner's Whits: Reloaded Illini golf again can compete for national title in 2017

Oh, and the talent keeps coming. The Class of 2017 features Hinsdale (Ill.) Central's Brendan O'Reilly, the No. 28 prospect in the Class of 2017, and Champaign native Varun Chopra, the No. 127 recruit. On Tuesday, Illinois received a commitment from Indiana native Noah Gillard, the No. 40 prospect in the Class of 2018 who joins No. 54 overall prospect and Morton (Ill.) native Tommy Kuhl in the class.

The "Champaign native" here goes to Uni High, the high school on campus. Academically gifted school with 60 kids per class, a 2 person golf "team", a budget for a once/week golf coach, and no facilities. To have a D1 athlete from there is incredible, let alone for a top 5 program. Talk about the definition of a buy low guy. Think about what he could do with some Mike Small coaching.
