    Illini Basketball 2020-2021

    I don't know what the record number of "likes" is for a post on Loyalty, but 44 (and counting) is pretty impressive for a post about a sport out of season. Illini fans definitely put the fanatic in fan lol. And I wouldn't have it any other way. :)

    Fighting Illini Basketball Scholarship Grid 2019-2020

    He played in nine games this season so no. https://fightingillini.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=8674 Edit: I am reading that if an athlete plays less than 30% of games, he is eligible. So 9/31 is 29%. Even if the one division II games doesn't count in the formula, it's still 30%. But I don't think it's...

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    My oldest kid is a 2020 grad (HS). I feel bad for these kids. This virus has upended everything for them. Who knows if school will even be open for them this fall, much less if we'll even be able to have a basketball season. This has gotta be a tough time for transitions. Never been more...

While on one hand I like the idea of transparency, I think it's also a potential to get in trouble for forgetting to report some stupid small benefit and getting a huge penalty. Also, if the school has to report on these things, then how do you...

    NCAA Name, Image, Likeness Rule

    Schools won't be able to get involved with this directly (see article below), but I'll be curious what shape this takes. https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/29113592/players-getting-paid-video-games-returning-answering-your-ncaa-name-image-likeness-questions

    NCAA Name, Image, Likeness Rule

    Thought this could use its own thread. The NCAA governing board said it supports a rule to allow student athletes to earn money on their own name, image and likeness starting in 2021. Still will require a vote in October. Here are some different takes. I think the Oregonian hits the nail on...

    Kind of along the same lines, I would ask his thoughts on his suiters and player development.

    Coaching Carousel

    Some interesting articles after that one in the link, including a laughable one where the state legislature of Florida voted FSU as national champions in lieu of the tournament.
