    2020 NBA Draft

    Seems that Vecenie left Ayo out of this mock based on his own judgement that Ayo could pull out of the draft after talking with college coaches, and nba coaches and executives. Was among a group of players that he left out based on that judgement.

    Illinois alumni team in TBT

    Makes sense on the players that have joined up so far. Looks like LaTulip is the one putting it all together and will be acting as a coach. http://thetournament.com/teams/house-paign-illinois-alumni

    Adam Miller signs with Illinois

    Large part has to do that they have one more player in their class. Say we hypothetically get a guy like Etienne or Weston to commit and reclass, a rough estimate would move us to #5 nationally and #1 in the big ten. I estimated this by adding a player with as close to the same composite rating...

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (March 2020)

    For those that care, using 247's class calculator and assuming Weston's composite grade of .9683 remains the same through the reclass, adding him to our incoming group would have our 2020 class ranked 6th in the country, still 2nd in the Big 10 behind Michigan (in a class of 5 versus a class of...

    Transfers Thread

    Looked it up, he in fact has spent exactly 3 years at each of his head coaching positions. Missouri state from 08-09 through 10-11, Tennessee from 11-12 through 13-14, Cal from 14-15 to 16-17, and now Mizzou from 17-18 to present.

    NFL Thread 2020-2021

    Bears are on the hook for about $16.7M per year over the next 3 years. Jags are eating close to $19M. Apparently, the way it's structured, the Bears could cut him after this season and save $15M in cap space while only eating $5M in dead money.

    A different kind of bracket challenge

    Penn Station is criminally underrated at a 16 seed, but there is no way it beats Chick-Fil-A unless the game is held on Sunday. Give me Potbelly over Panda Express in a classic 5-12 upset though.

    Former BBall Recruiting Targets

    Talen Horton-Tucker? Played 1 season for Iowa State then declared for the draft. Picked in the 2nd round by the Lakers, has spent the vast majority of this season in the G-League, where he is averaging 18 points, 6 boards, and 4 assists per game. Played 5 minutes over two games with the NBA...

    Former BBall Recruiting Targets

    I'll be updating my spreadsheet sometime before the tournament begins with stats through the conference tournaments. Planning on highlighting guys playing on teams in the tournament if people want to look out for them in March in non-Illini games.

    English Premier League 2019-2020

    Not sure if this is the best place to post but oh well. As a Tottenham and Illinois fan, I can't help but notice the almost consistent opposing success that our basketball team has had with Tottenham. With only a couple exceptions since the new year / the start of the majority of conference...
