    Rob Jordan passed away

    This is really terrible news for the Jordan family. Many on this board, myself included, regarded Rob very highly. The only bright spot is the legacy he left behind in raising such a fine man as Aaron. That is no small thing. My prayers to the Jordan family.

    I would love to round out the 2019 class with Tyler Scanlon. Kid has a sweet stroke and pretty good handles for someone his size. I know there has been quite a bit of talk about the 3 point line being extended and how it would reduce the shooting percentage behind the arc. My take on this is...

    I think he was just going to be signing paperwork to enroll since it is a quiet period.

    I don't think we could afford anybody in their recruiting class of 1991.

    The atmosphere is substantially impacted by the success on the floor. When I was in C-U during the early 80s the atmosphere was electric. When we start winning consistently I expect the atmosphere will improve.

    This is exactly right. Those people thinking that Illini fans are "unrealistic" are using the last dozen or so years as a baseline od our performance rather than an aberrant period of subpar performance. The longer the dry spell is the more reasonable that perception becomes. Let's hope next...

    “Speculative”? Darn, I thought posters on this board were insiders......

    I can appreciate that recruiting may have been affected (even possibly adversely) if certain players had stayed although I doubt that we wouldn’t have still recruited Giorgi . My point isn’t so much to postulate how much certain players could have helped our team as it is to highlight the fact...

    Great point Ptown. I think what people are not considering fully is that we had an exodus of players including our best and most experienced players. What do you think our record would have been if Leron and Finke had stayed? IMHO that would have made a huge difference in number of games won...

    River city - Not picking on you and yes, I know what you meant and I’m sure others did as well. I think Dbell was just bringing some levity to the board which I always appreciate (not to make fun of you). I often have to edit posts due to fat fingers and poor eyesight. Please take the comments...

    Perhaps more importantly is why players leave. It did not surprise me that we had a bunch of players leave that BU did not recruit. Also, you look at a player like Leron Black who had recently gotten married and could play pro ball in Europe and Michael Finke got the chance to play with his...

    Trent definitely was banged up this year and that definitely affected his play but I’m not sure if he can gain much more muscle mass OR that it would necessarily help him. He has an extremely narrow frame but is actually very muscular. I think he felt he had to do more offensively during the...

    I agree with this. More importantly, in the context of comparing any player to the top ranked player in a recruiting class, it's difficult to imagine NOT being "overmatched". Your point is correct, Kofi was not overmatched in any sense other than Wiseman being a superior player....old news.
