    Didn't he post just 24 hours ago that he will be visiting Champaign this weekend? Then he goes and commits to Mizzou? Kids these days.

    The Sun Times story has some solid takes. If the team does not significantly improve, make the tourney and land good prospects, Underwood may be out.

    Illini Baseball 2019

    I watched scUM take out top ranked UCLA this weekend to advance to the CWS. I think the big story was scUM’s pitching pretty much shutting down UCLA’s bats in all three games (scUM would have won in 2 but for a terrible 9th inning error in game 2). First time scUM has gotten to Omaha since 1984...

    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    This is what recruiting to Illinois Basketball has become? Rides handed out to foreign kids playing in marginal leagues sight unseen? There’s not a single talented American kid that we’ve consistently scouted and developed a relationship with who is interested in joining the program? Wow. If...

    Kevin Warren named commissioner of the Big Ten Conference

    Over time does the participation of Rutgers and Maryland in the conference boost the revenue to University of Illinois by a sufficient amount to offset the added costs of our teams traveling there and the reduced percentage that U of I gets from total conference revenues? I have my doubts.

    If he can catch the ball every time it is thrown in his direction, he’s got a job.

    So, did he sign it at school today, as he said he would? It is almost 8:00 p.m. in his time zone.

    AJ Griffin named to the USA U16 squad. Pretty cool. I have seen a couple of the kids who made the squad play live as freshman (one is a classmate with my children; another plays at a rival school); they are clearly more developed athletically their most of their peers, but both still have a lot...

    Fascinating story in The Athletic today about the huge number of players still in the transfer portal who, given the simple math, likely won’t find a spot at another FBS school or maybe even FCS school. Forty former 4-stars still in the portal. Clemson LB Shaq Smith just went in yesterday.

    If what I have read on line is correct, none. At the moment. We don't know whether a current player might leave, but I bet their coaching staff does.

    This. Both Kentucky and Miss St. have returning QBs with a lot more experience than Robinson and Taylor. There is no place that offers Stevens a clearer path to being a starter than Illinois, if starting is truly his #1 priority.

    From day 1, I was highly skeptical whether he would ever make it to our campus. Oh well. Next.

    This is so ridiculous. There is not a single FBS school within a 100 mile radius of his hometown. U. of Illinois is the closest. SIU is obviously closer, but some arbitrary mileage rule should not force a kid to either step down a competitive class or sit a year.

    Coran was a very good HS player, and a real winner. I would love to see him persevere, continue to develop and get an opportunity at QB. Seems like a good kid.
