    Kofi has to take it easy; they don't want to be replacing rims every single practice.

    That person is spot on - if referring to Illinois fans who started watching after about 2008. They have "no clue" how good we were and for how long. Yes, it's fading in the rear view mirror, but to imply fans have no clue when expecting better than sub-500 performance is insulting. Meanwhile...

    Only coaching regime I had ties to, and almost every time I was told something it didn't come true. I think those guys were strung along consistently themselves, imo, and I felt for them. Happy to be out of the loop now :)

    Can anyone throw out names of other recruits in yesterday? Saw someone I didn't recognize. Big guy, 6'9"+

    I agree, because one thing he should be able to do right out of the gate is rebound. He'll have to adjust to the college game for sure. But on the other hand, opponents are going to have problems dealing with him. He's big and mobile. And I don't think he starts over Giorgi; he starts with him.

    Get Kofi to drop ~20lbs, increase his athleticism a little in the process; there's a place for him. Saying this without ever seeing him play a college game, but it's just a projection. You don't have to be Kevin Durant; Andre Drummond seems more of a reasonable aspiration.

    Teams are going to have to single Giorgi, or it's dunk city for Kofi when they leave him to double team... That's my dream, anyway.

    Sounded like dodging to me, just my opinion and also doesn't matter much to me, at this point. "Do you feel everybody's coming back?" "I feel great" "So does this mean no transfers?" "I feel great" "What's the weather like today?" "I feel great" "Who invented crop rotation?" "I feel...

    Well written, but one word the author, and everyone with the same take, is missing: Cartel. This is not how a cash market is supposed to work, in this country. There are only so many players each year, and so many more Universities. How is it decided where the best players go? Does Idaho...

    "I don't foresee any red flags that I'm aware of," Gottfried said at the time. "It's a situation that's much bigger than all of us. It has affected a lot of programs. I'm confident that should be behind us pretty quickly."

    Been to Oak Hill, it's crazy rural. I think Jefferson was the closest anything, and that means a Wal Mart and a Burger King. Definitely the land of the front yard junkyard.

    Anyone with a brain knows all the coaches are aware and complicit. But, they're smart, too, and maintain deniability... IMO, I'm surprised the focus isn't less on players receiving benefits but more on the fact that something like a cartel is created as a result of these practices and denies...
