    I hope we do not lose Hahn, the Cora Hinch might have had a bit to do with LaRussa hire but he isn't squeeky clean ala Roid rage McGwire etc. I was totally against LaRussa hire, but the more I hear complaints the more I warm up. Long time Sox fan so have suffered being talked down too etc, crazy...

    So "according to some UK fans" Hopkins is being slow played by UK. Might explain why dad leans to U of I. I know I would see a situation of if your not priority now, how long will you be and want a better commitment. Interesting.

    With 11 CB's to Kentucky, anyone feeling the need for a cup is not doing it right. , the maroon with the hat trick, cup check, IDKWTI, cupcheck. Hopkins would be an amazing get. Hopefully he feels the desire to be an Illini. If not, not completely a kick in the nads due to ignoring those who get...

    Much like Ayo coming to start a turnaround Illinois can sell 5 stars the chance to continue a dynamic program with no pressure to stay in program, or get pushed out too early. Patience with Ayo and Kofi proves that IMO.

    Sandy Alomar would be awesome...Hinch, LaRussa, Cora next faves for me. I didn't realize Sandy was just acting/interim which would make it double special. Only thing better would be if it was the Twinks...hey Gardenhire winning WS with Chi Sox would be OK haha... Alomar, Hinch, Cora , Larussa...

    Illini Basketball 2020-2021

    Rather eye catching for recruits to read Illini highly ranked. Kudo's to Coaches, Ayo for helping start the ball rolling, Trent for stabilizing, Giorgi for ...well Giorgi...Kofi for continuing the train rolling and Luke Goode for helping stoke the coals of the future. And all the hard working...
