    As a current UIUC student that is passionate about Illinois sports, I can tell you that this is not something supported by the students. Everyone I personally know hates it. There are some students who like it, but by far the majority (from everything I have heard) hate it and think it's...

    Jordan Goodwin commits to SLU

    So I guess you would say it's not ideal, but not a dagger in the heart of the program?

    Jordan Goodwin commits to SLU

    In that article Goodwin says "I like having him in my corner, especially seeing how he develops players.” talking about Ford. I am rolling my eyes so hard right now.

    I would say Frazier, Kiir, and a 5th year. Save the last scholly for either scruggs or wilkes on the off chance they want to come, otherwise keep it open for Finke or one of the pg prospects for next year.

    I'm wondering if he's delaying it to get some of his attention/control back, since it's been leaked and become so public before he got a chance to announce it. And to me it looks like he's retweeting a lot of stuff people are tweeting at him that are negative to him, just for the attention or...

    I guess I interpreted this as not talking to any of the Eagles coaches, not meaning Illinois or SLU coaches. Was he meaning that Goodwin has cut himself off from Groce and Ford and everyone else?

    +1 that's a good point. And it's not like this reporter has made a name for being reliable or even someone to pay attention to.

    Illini Basketball 2016-2017

    So according to the schedule on Global Sports Academy's website, it looks like tonight should(?) be the first game. Or at least tonight wherever they're at, not sure what time it would be here in the US

    Haha, I started to type "I'm not a fan" then decided to change it to "I don't think I'm a fan" but just messed up the edit... :doh:

    Interesting that (from the excerpt in his post) the authors of this article are so absolutely sure that Pickett won't redshirt his frosh year.

    Later in this video, Verge dribbles the ball off his defender's face. I don't think I'm not a fan of someone who would intentionally hit someone in the face with a basketball, even if it wasn't all that hard.

    So according to this they're playing 5 games, with the first 4 being on 4 consecutive days. 10 players on the roster, with AJ being one of 2 sophomores. Also 2 jr, 6 sr, no frosh. It lists the teams they'll be playing, I'd be interested to know how good they are. Their roster isn't anything...

    If this were to happen (which obviously it won't) would he still count as one of our 13 scholarship players for basketball, or could he be counted as a walk on?

    This is now at the top of my list of "Things UIUC should get right now." If fishing trips can land a recruit, gotta think a Pizza ATM can sway some others too, right??
