    For his sake, I really do hope he is able to get things together. Obviously, it helps the team, but he's also just a kid. I can only imagine that the world of big college sports is a grinder for many of these kids - it can't be an easy life. Hope Tev comes up on the positive side.

    Assuming this is SR vs. Hawkins, I thought the rumor was that the 3*/220 Nat'l was on the verge of cracking the top 150. That would move the 2 much closer seemingly. Who knows if that matters to either one or not, but It seems that they may be more closely ranked than previously thought.

    One is Ayo going NBA. After that, transfers are the regular in CBB, so another open ride should be expected.

    A Dream Deferred? What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up Like a raisin in the sun? Or fester like a sore-- And then run? Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over-- like a syrupy sweet? Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode? Langston Hughes

    IIRC, Duke is his dream school, so conventional wisdom says we should move on. I'm sure the coaches will still pursue bc that's their job, but there's almost no confidence in him choosing UI.

    Feels like we're getting slow played...given his value, I have to assume there are some schools quietly in his ear other than the public Illinois/Rutgers. Yes, part of it may be the waiver, but it just feels weird.

    Give me Miller and I'll learn to love the other 2 or 3 that join him.

    How many former Illini are in the NBA right now? How many future NBAers are we projecting on our current roster coming off the worst season in UI hoops history? I'm too lazy to do the research on the former, but I'd guess the number is LESS than the latter answer.
