    Bobby Roundtree suffers severe spinal injury

    My thoughts exactly. Ryan is from Florida, I hope he reaches out to him to give him some encouragement.

    I believe you know and that really sucks. His ranking has dropped off from previous rankings if I'm not mistaken but that doesn't matter to me. I wish they would lock up someone early. I think he will be an exceptional college player.

    I promise I was just trying to get a few giggles and lighten things up. I'm sure 95% on this board have much further education than me. No harm intended rivercity

    What are these physilities you speak of??? This must be the determining factor, I've never heard of it.

    Tyler Macon would set us up at QB for the next 5-6 years. Let's get him on board coach Sunkett.

    All this talk about Giorgi playing the 4 mainly are not gonna play out that way IMO. Giorgi will stay at the 5 most of the time. I think he will float around 30 minutes total and 20-24 at the 5. I think he still only gets 6-10 min at the 4. Coach has a fast paced system and I dont see Kofi...

    I think Carney will do some damage opposite Roundtree this year

    Me too. I think he gained even more confidence in his leg this year. I know if it were me I would be cautious for quite some time after a knee injury. I'm sure therapy and training helps but I know from experience that it takes ALOT of time to trust a previous injured body part to hold up to the...

    Yeah man it is crazy to give up on Samba. Let me remind folks that Egwu averaged 1.9ppg, 0.6 bpg, 1.5 rpg. All with 10 minutes per game. I dont even think Kane has scratched the surface of what he will be in a couple years.

    When your top targets are top 25-50 recruits in the nation it's easy for someone like you to sit back and say we aren't getting "his guys" because KW and Shannon went elsewhere. There's only a select few teams in the country that get the majority of their top 3 choices at any given position...

    60 out of 1000 says he knows what he is looking for. Some of you are never happy. 6% or less of the high school field is narrowing your choices pretty well if you ask me. Especially when we aren't on the level of Kentucky/ Duke/ KU/ Mich St. recruiting YET. We need 3rd and 4th options that carry...

    I just want this down for the record. So what if the linebackers play great? Will Miles get credit? This will be a lose lose situation (at least on this board)for Miles. I can see it now, if they play great it was because of Lovie, if they crap the bed and play terrible it'll be Miles fault...

    Dont get your expectations up for any quality recruits fellas. It's getting close to spring recruiting and Obelix says these fall back options are not good signs. Man, I wonder where he has been lately.

    Completely different position but he can be our Trey Burke. 3 star player out of high school that completely took the league by surprise and never let off the gas pedal.

    I agree. Pessimists will always find a place to vent. Basketball/ football recruiting on the up, just knocked off a top 10 team in hoops as well. Nothing to complain about in those threads so they huddle up here.

    Post game thread win against top 10 team and I dont have the message at the bottom that says "show ignored content". All the deniers have hit the bricks! What a great feeling. Go ILLINI. So proud for the team tonight. Sounded like the house was rocking on the radio.

    Yeah man I'm hoping Kane stays. He could be a force his junior year. Especially if Kofi only stays 1 year. If Kofi can average 12ppg, 9 boards, and a couple blocks a game I could see him going to the league. NBA ready body already.

    St. Thomas Aquinnas is another school i hoped we would keep momentum going with as well. They produce some big time recruits. C'mon Epstien, get the boys on board!

    Great post. Let's not fail to mention how good our O line did this year after that horrible flipping sides crap McGee had them doing(considering age and experience of course). Another year of experience for all but 1 of them is gonna pay huge dividends.
