    I think that you are kind of confusing skill and basketball knowledge with athleticism. GB can only dream of being the athlete that Ebo is!

    I agree with most of this. Actually, the kids were a lot better than the guys they replaced.

    The only reason he didn't go is that he is not the physical specimen that NBA teams desire. He is considered by his coach and many others as the best passer at MSU since Magic. Somehow, the coaches did vote him Player of the Year in the B1G. I know a number of NBA scouts that just wish he was a...

    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    Curious how a guy considered possibly the best pt guard in the country, in your mind, should not be considered the best in the Big Ten? He makes passes a lot of guys don't even see and a lot of his turnovers against us were because guys didn't catch the ball or, didn't get their head around...

    Simple question. Who would he be doing this for, you or himself? There is a lot to recruiting and, making a decision in a rush is not a good way to do things. All schools tell you what a great school they are and how badly they need you. I actually leaned towards Stanford before I picked...

    If we get the Mich QB, we may also want to take a look at this young man. https://www.freep.com/story/sports/college/university-michigan/wolverines/2019/06/05/oliver-martin-transfer-michigan-football/1360622001/

    Sam Mitchell was also an NBA Coach of the Year.

    I was simply responding to the claim that our facilities are first rate. Facilities may not get a kid to sign with you but, they can certainly lose a kid that you are recruiting.

    Our facilities are decent at best. We are not even close to the top half of the B1G. We have announced an upgrade but, no one seems to know when.

    I acknowledge FT35's football knowledge but, have no idea what makes you an expert, Illiniwil. The preference is to catch the ball with your hands but it is not the requirement. I know of some great Hall of Fame receivers that used their body to catch the ball. So, there goes your every time...

    I apologize if I responded too harshly to this in my earlier post. I consider you and Dude as two of the most knowledgeable posters on this board. Not that my opinion should carry any great weight on here, lol. It just bothers me, and has for many years, to the degree that I get overly...

    I just couldn't ignore this. As long as the ball is caught is what should be important. I guarantee you will see just as many balls dropped with the hands as you will with the body. That is what one hears from h.s, coaches that have never played receiver. You would have hated Lynn Swann. Some...
