    Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

    This staff does seem to recruit to their values over rankings & I think most of us can live with the small ding we will take for a bit smaller class, but even without creaming I expect our classes to get back closer to 20 in size, seems like when you start recruiting 1&2 year transfers you are...

    J Leman talked about it on Werner somewhere back this year, said Zook stressed family & steered around facilities as much as possible. But standing pat since then we fell further behind.

    Illini Football 2020

    Werner plays some of the interview on his radio show if you would rather listen. But most/much of it is already quoted in the article. Also has interviews with Hansen, Kendrick, and I suspect Hobbs in the podcasts.

    Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

    I initially was responding to a post where someone was apologizing for not having patience and believing this was the master plan, so it was certainly implied. The talent level generally improved last year because of recruiting/ transfers and the very low level of talent we started with, 2020...

    Problem is if you go by average ranking we move up to 13, ahead of Rutgers. We may be able to out develop, find underrated gems, transfers to make up for recruiting classes. I hope so, but I don’t think this has to be an either or thing & it would be nice to start out on more even footing. For...

    To be fair, this recent run has moved us from 14th in B1G recruiting to 14th in B1G recruiting, but at least in the range of overtaking IU for 13... so it isn’t like we have arrived yet. It matters where we finish, but we are still entering the halfway point at the back of the pack.

    2020 NBA Draft

    Shining in the spotlight of an NCAA tourney probably would have helped, but the NBA makes a living on finding players with much less exposure than Ayo, playing in the B1G, all big honors, Showing up big down the stretch, the NBA has seen Ayo, he isn’t an unknown.

    Illini Basketball 2020-2021

    Why is it that Hancock County is the only place in the state that people say they live in the county rather than a town? My mom grew up in horselick. IA/IND both, but living in NC has also put Chapel Hill right up there. Bet no one from outside Hancock County will get that reference.)

    2020 NBA Draft

    Problem is this isn’t the scenario. There is no promises for next year. Ayo had a special year this year, he would need to improve above expectations to make the first round next year. A lot of the draft is about potential upside, the longer you hang around college the more defined your ceiling...

    You probably should see a doctor over this Purdue thing, maybe a shot or something can take care of that.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (May 2020)

    Seems like that was the general consensus during most of the Groce’s years. Problem was we never lived up to the NCAA potential & almost all of the promising scholarships never materialized. No disrespect to Underwood, I’m happy with last year and where we stand, & like where we are sitting...

    We are in the minority, but barring some bridges weren’t burned behind the scenes, I would take him back in a heartbeat, and take my chances on what he decides for his senior year.

    Transfers Thread

    Werner had the interview on the podcast if anyone wants to listen to it, don’t remember if it was his show or Illini Inquirer. It also sounded like the only grad transfer they would be likely to take is a stretch 4, barring a no brainer falling in there lap

    Big Ten Tournament Canceled

    Let's just nominate Katz to make up the bracket...even let him fill it out & name the champion. Giorgi can be his advisor.
