    Illinois 85, The Citadel 57 POSTGAME

    I'm definitely already spoiled by Kofi. Going to be hard to go back to a normal big man.

    Maybe. We will have to see how he handles BiG play, but the modern NBA drafts more on potential now. And you can't teach athletic and big.

    My Sister had a class with Luther Head, and she mentioned he had a chaperon/tutor with him when he was there.

    Pregame: Illinois at Grand Canyon, Friday, November 8th, 8:00pm CT

    Tough early games and sloppy play happens every year to teams. Kansas turned the ball over more than we did last night, and Michigan also almost blew a 20 point lead. We aren't the only ones. The Illini need to get better in quite a few areas, but to early to panic. Unfortunately there may be...

    Illinois 83, Lewis 50 (Exhibition) POSTGAME

    Didn't see the game, just read through the comments. Not worried about Ayo. We saw enough last year to know what the kid will bring. He is a big piece of the puzzle for Illinois becoming relevant this year, so I understand the angst. But it is one exhibition game. I would like to see a game...

    I have been following him too. He was always one of the favorites of mine for the Orange and Blue. Meyers Leonard is also with Miami now.

    Nor I. I hope I am wrong. He and AG are the two I most hope have a break out season.

    No surprise there. And not a big deal if things continue to trend in the hopeful direction.

    And such an easy thing to do. I trust Illini0440 more than most on this board, and apparently whomever illini gets his info from feels like he/she would like Underwood to have more contact with the recruits. It may be true it may not. The Head Coach having contact with recruits seems to be 101...

    Sounds like he really likes the State of Arizona if he is visiting two schools.
