    Rob Jordan passed away

    This is really terrible news for the Jordan family. Many on this board, myself included, regarded Rob very highly. The only bright spot is the legacy he left behind in raising such a fine man as Aaron. That is no small thing. My prayers to the Jordan family.

    I would love to round out the 2019 class with Tyler Scanlon. Kid has a sweet stroke and pretty good handles for someone his size. I know there has been quite a bit of talk about the 3 point line being extended and how it would reduce the shooting percentage behind the arc. My take on this is...

    I think he was just going to be signing paperwork to enroll since it is a quiet period.

    I don't think we could afford anybody in their recruiting class of 1991.

    The atmosphere is substantially impacted by the success on the floor. When I was in C-U during the early 80s the atmosphere was electric. When we start winning consistently I expect the atmosphere will improve.

    This is exactly right. Those people thinking that Illini fans are "unrealistic" are using the last dozen or so years as a baseline od our performance rather than an aberrant period of subpar performance. The longer the dry spell is the more reasonable that perception becomes. Let's hope next...

    Great point Ptown. I think what people are not considering fully is that we had an exodus of players including our best and most experienced players. What do you think our record would have been if Leron and Finke had stayed? IMHO that would have made a huge difference in number of games won...
