    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (May 2019)

    Groce's O was checkers. Underwood's feels more like chess. Weber's was ??? Somewhere in between?

    One can only hope. One year of grad transfer, then hand the reigns over to Williams.

    Interesting... I'm guessing this is related to eligibility issues

    Maybe not considering how weak our WR corps is. Ford plays and there is little to no excuse for <6 wins. Great emergency valve on passing plays.

    2019 St. Louis Cardinals

    I'm gonna be honest. I missed his Slam. I was pretty shocked when I saw what he did today. He's our (cubs) MiLB depth catcher. Only there BC our backup is hurt. Tough break.

    2019 St. Louis Cardinals

    Cubs fan here. Montgomery is pretty great as a 6th starter/swing man. We also have Chatwood, who chat the bed last year but otherwise has been a pretty strong starter throughout his career. Our depth isn't as good as STL's, but it's not nothing.

    Chicago Cubs 2019 Season

    No. They were both horrendous last year. Darvish has clearly superior stuff. They both hand out waaaaay too many walks but you can't tell me Chatwood is the better pitcher. Not now. Not ever.

    Interesting, Illinois is 4-1 against the spread, with the only exception being Kent State in week 1. Wins and losses aside, this shows that Illinois so far has outpaced expectations.

    Yep. I was gonna say -8, based on current Sagarin Ratings. https://www.usatoday.com/sports/ncaaf/sagarin/ The cluster of Purdue (56), Northwestern(55), Minnesota(61), and Nebraska(83), will define the season for Illinois(100). Win Three of these four and we go bowling. All would be upsets...
