    Maybe? And just poorly written. What I was referring to was Weber undermining Dee’s early entry draft prospects. Dee ended up making a statement about it at the combine before he broke his foot.

    He got an early dose of the Dee Brown treatment from Weber.

    If the NCAA was smart they would. The NCAAs existence is under threat via challenges to their amateurism model and the increased autonomy of the P5 schools. These blue bloods being busted by the feds is the perfect argument that these schools and conferences are not capable of self policing.

    The suspense right now waiting on this commitment will never change. As long as you peruse this thread you’ll find this same situation again and again. It’s been like that way since Shaun Livingston chose Duke to skip past on his way to the NBA. The suspense must be the reason you visit...

    I think Lovie has brought respectability to the brand, and if the Illini were to replace him then I imagine they’d have many more options than would’ve 5 years ago.

    I didn’t get a chance to respond to @redwingillini11 in the game thread regarding who is an example of a B10 QB, and that’s a good question, and maybe Peters is an average B10 QB. One way or another you need to move the ball better in the NCAA game. Even the bad teams across the country can do...

    Game Thread: Illinois at Wisconsin

    It’s tough for the defense when they’re on the field so much. Its tough on the OC when the QB can’t throw a reliable dig route. Ultimately it’s Rods fault for not adjusting or recruiting the right players for his system. I’m not trying to pick on Peters but how good would a John Beutjer (sp?)...

    Alternatively with an average B10 QB the team has better season start to finish. The defense hasn’t played well but this NCAA. All but the very best defenses give up a lot of yards and points. LSU loaded on D with 5 and 4 star players and a NC winning coaching staff is giving up 30 points and...

    I think it’s obvious Peters is not a B10 QB, and hasn’t been for quite awhile. Some Illinois fans aren’t willing to write him off, and that’s fine, but he’s clearly the weakest link.

    I don’t want to speak for anyone else but I don’t think people are picking on Tyler. I’m guessing it’s a reference to him getting minutes over higher ranked players such as Mark Smith early on it BUs tenure.

    I wonder how clued in the other players and teammates are in general regarding these commitments. It's funny thinking about all this mental energy spent trying to decipher the tea leaves, when maybe these kids discuss it freely amongst their peers, and its an open secret. I realize everyone on...

    Nesbit making those comments goes a long way in confirming our insider if there was any question before. Nesbitt laid it out there just as I recall QC stating was the case going back a couple weeks. So hats off to you QC.

    For what it’s worth I don’t see DePaul ever rejuvenating it’s program or selling out that new arena. At best they become a stepping stone, and find themselves back to square-one. Their brand has been dead for 30 years. The new arena is realistically an hour commute from campus either requiring...

    Ours. Which is practically complete even though we haven’t won a tourney game yet. I think when that happens I’ll be willing to stamp it as officially complete.

    Side note: would anyone here welcome Snacks back with open arms? I realize he’s not in the same stratosphere as OA. Self may be banned or bolt for NBA soon, and a Snacks return could become an option.
