    In re: Kouma's ability to both R/S and practice with the team, you answer is found broadly in NCAA Bylaw 14.3: Freshman Redshirt Requirements, specifically subsections 14.3.1 (Eligibility..."Qualifiers" and "Academic Redshirts"), 14.3.1.1. ("Qualifier" - an immediately eligible player), 14.3.2...

    I do not think that you could be any farther from the truth. I could not care less from where the players come, so long as they can play / add value to an otherwise empty spot. This is far from worse; it is actually rather brilliant. Assuming both are signed, they are court-eligible in 2020...

    Just a few thoughts, and while I firmly feel that Kouma will be on campus sooner than later, I will believe it when I see it; bureaucracy and the procedures that are its progeny may hold up indefinitely his arrival date. It is nice that he is retweeting and cheering on the team, but this is...

    And moving to the 2021 recruiting class and the many posts and tweets about Alan Griffin needing to get on the court more, something with which I agree, if he is not put off by the lack of playing time and has bought into the BU system, does he help us recruit his brother, who is in the ESPN's...

    Having already missed one year, short of his injury being even more serious than is being reported or than was originally thought and thus forcing him to walk away from competitive basketball, would he be willing to sit out another year by transferring? I cannot see it happening and hope that it...

    You probably have it correct in the order of respective interest between program and player. The Brown recruitment seems to be gaining steam; TSJ has cooled a bit, but we are still in it (although I predict him to commit to DePaul...again); Archie, may be number two, but both sides have cooled...

    For what it is worth, the same thing happened with Kofi. All of the early CBs were in favour of UConn with a few going to Syracuse. Things quieted after the initial predictions, players were shuffled back into the deck, Kofi visited, and then the watershed of last minute CB picks or changes...

    And I just got into town, and you degens (total joke) convinced me to take a stroll down memory lane. At Murphy’s right now...many thanks!

    This is filled with so many gems, but two of which that stand out that may otherwise be obscured by the obvious: 1. "No one has worked harder than Coach Underwood and his staff" - Yeah, that is what I want from my coaching staff 2. "I'm looking forward to recruiting other players to come to...

    ...1...boom. Should he announce today as expected, there is no way that he is going to do it before or during a game. Given the way that he has acquitted himself during his recruitment, his announcement would not come at the expense of overshadowing the team (no "we definitely need a true big"...

    Missouri 79, Illinois 63 POSTGAME

    If there was ever a need for Kofi, tonight was all that was needed to justify said need. This team is young, inexperienced, and lacks a true identity; it has half Groce leftovers and new blood. This team will get longer, more athletic, and hopefully more talented. There were things to like about...

    My word. Trent is a freaking beast. He is going to go down as an Illini legend; that point is almost moot, even at this juncture.

    Almost was about to say the same about Ayo. Potential foul there on Tilmon over the back bump on Giorgi; it would have been cheap, but it would have up for many missed calls.

    Yet neither will be felt greatly in the long term.
