    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (January 2020)

    When I watch Hawkins I'm reminded of Griffin's high school footage. He seemed very clumsy and awkward to me, though obviously not untalented. One thing I'm sure of is this staff can develop talent. Give Hawkins a couple years to gain strength and improve his footwork and skills and he could be a...

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (January 2020)

    Please provide a quote where someone states, "Illinois should sign Whitney because he was a 5 star recruit and therefore will be a great college player." Do you believe John Calipari—who has put more players into the first round of the NBA draft than anyone in the history of the game—wanted him...

    UI made a colossal mistake in not firing JG a year earlier and hiring Bryce Drew. It's been one blunder after another for this athletic dept.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (April 2018)

    Maybe I just don't know what I'm watching, but Golden doesn't seem like a Boheim kind of guy to me. It seems like he's always favored the long, thin guys to cause havoc in his zone. Regardless, there's nothing more certain than the reality that if he comes to UI he'll be a role player and if he...

    Michael Finke, Te'Jon Lucas transferring from Illinois

    Gotta get the players that fit your personality and culture. Frank Martin went from 14-18 (4-14) in his first year at South Carolina to the Final Four in year 5. It’s not fun, but it’s what has to happen in this sort of rebuild. This was never going to be Weber coaching Self’s recruits to a...

    If Rocky Harvey (there's a name from the past) can play RB at Illinois, this kid can play QB.

    Leron Black to pursue professional career

    Ah. I see. We. Thanks for clarifying. People have been overwhelmingly supportive of Leron's decision. It's bad from a basketball standpoint for the fans, but only sociopaths will criticize him for it.
