    Illinois Football Performance Center

    I imagine the designers were tasked with trying to make it blend as much as possible under the constraints of needed square footage and close proximity to the stadium and practice field, and cost of course. Making it smaller or locating it farther away would negatively impact its utility as a...

    He could probably field an NBA team with just his former players.

    Well, historically Illinois has done well with QBs from Calif, so there's that.

    I'm betting on Samba being a reliable option this year. He showed some good things at times last season, and should only improve with a full summer of workouts.

    I think what Kofi brings next season is defense and rebounds. We got abused by big front lines, and his mere presence will negate much of that. Whatever he adds on offense is just bonus; we have plenty of scoring options.

    When he's down in his stance, it'll be tilted forward to an 'I' again.

    Yep, and I hate to count those chickens, but we have to expect a soph leap from at least one of our five freshmen.

    News-Gazette: Brad Underwood cleared in DIA Investigation into his coaching

    An alternative take: I think MS (and dad) were mad he wasn't the featured player and pg with the ball in his hands running the offense, even though he failed to win that job despite given every opportunity. To make sure he didn't have to sit out his transfer year, they went with the 'abusive...

    He reminds of Clay Nurse. A tweener but super straight-line athleticism.

    I'm thinking safety should be improved merely because Brown will be a soph. He showed promise last season, and with a year of game experience under his belt, he should really start to get it. Linebacker? We'll see how Eifler does, but he has the athleticism and speed to cover the middle of the...

    Well, yeah, everyone knows the minimum requirement to apply for countrydom is 501 or more. But seriously, I bet a visit there would be fascinating.

    Chad??? That's a landlocked Saharan country with like 500 people, and only one was known to play basketball. And we got him! So that makes Jamaica, Senegal, Georgia, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico (Trent in some way), a 2nd generation Nigerian, and now Chad. If I lived in Champaign, I'd...
