    I understand that their staff goes by their own evaluations instead of website rankings but let's make this an exercise via 247 rankings of their 2012 commitments through current day: 2012 Faith Ekakitie (1st overall pick in CFL in 2017) Jaleel Johnson (4th round pick by Vikings) Ryan Ward...

    Couldn't agree more. We can hate (read as jealousy) on him for his mantra, but you're kidding yourself if you think he hasn't shown to be an excellent college coach. Easy to look back and realize that would have been a slam dunk hire by Illinois for a number of reasons. At this point I am hoping...

    If this is our standard, we would have went from Pearl Harbor Day to a couple days before Cinco de Mayo without a single post of positive news in this thread.

    Uhhhh, absolutely. I'll take all of the recruits with size and potential we can get.

    I'm not about telling people what we should or should not mention. This is is a blog, the whole point is discussion. Again, we can discuss this type of statement all you want, but I think this statement is an inaccurate depiction because these are not mutually exclusive! You can get both...

    So Wisecarver is committing today, a different player (being recruited by Patterson) is also committing today, and then a possible third commitment is happening on Sunday?

    He's a darn good defender and rebounder. He averaged double-digits last year for Indiana. He would be a very solid addition. If he shot 40% from 3 he would be averaging 16 ppg and would be Indiana's #1 option.

    PSA: I wish some of you would upload a photo to put under your name. Would help me remember individual posters (and some of you have some great options for photos based on your profile name). Wondering how to post an avatar? Click on your name up on the blue bar (next to the search option)...

    We all want the program to be successful. I want Lovie to achieve an 8-win season this year and get a then richly-deserved extension to provide the program some stability it hasn't had since 2008, but I'll spin. Let's assume the McConnell-Edwards-Blackburn-Wisecarver do all happen this week...

    If this comes to fruition, it would be one of the best two weeks of football commitments in a long time.

    Based on Werner and Easterling picks, he seems like the obvious new commitment. This would be another solid addition by the staff. Seeing offers from Auburn, Miami, Louisville, and Purdue are good signs.

    I can only speak for me, but my perspective was not that the Illinois HS coaches were solely culpable, but that this is a mutual issue between both parties. Hiring a director based in Houston does not change that for me. It's a broken relationship, so the football staff has decided to...
