    To be fair, Dave Leitao probably should have done more to prevent violations by KU.

    If BU actually won games you might have an argument here.

    People act like screw Chicago because they don’t give us their best players (current 5* from Chicago on our roster notwithstanding), but then we whiffed recently on every non-Chicago star from Illinois (KBD, Okoro, Liddell) also. So should we stop recruiting Illinois? Is that the plan?

    Last year’s class gives reason to preach rebuilding and patience. I don’t understand the purpose of your post. Illinois will be perpetually bad? You want Underwood fired? Or just a general disdain for optimism? Doesn’t make a lot of sense to me to try to shame the few optimistic Illinois fans...
