    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    I chatted up with Brad his first year and we got on the subject of size. I got the impression he was concerned about size, but there wasn’t much to do about it. Everyone kind of knew when he was addressing the media saying he wasn’t worried about size was just coach speak or trying to instill...

    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    I’m a big fan of Ayo, but realistically I don’t see him as a lottery pick. As mentioned previously, he’s just not that athletic or as fast. His lateral movement on defense is slow too. In the NBA he’ll get eaten alive on the defensive end currently. I’ll buy that he may be one of the top 5 PG’s...

    Illini Football 2019

    Spot on. If IW got to play a few early games, then red shirt; that would solidify our offense for the future. Williams has the tools to be great, but anyone who’s went from hs to D1 knows about the size/strength differences, and also the speed of the game change. Both those can have a major...

    I believe so. Hopefully he’ll fit into the offense and make them competitive.

    Illini Football 2019

    My UM insider buddy texted me a few days ago telling me BP is coming by just saying “He’s your problem now. 😏” Rod is going to have to make some adjustments due to him jot being a QB that fits his system, but I don’t think it will hinder us too bad. I know IW is the QB of the future, we just...

    Someone out there knows something, because i’ve heard from a few sources that Patterson already has an idea what he plans to do.

    Neat pickup. Shows off some skills, but that highlight video was against some of the weakest competition i’ve seen in a highlight reel. I would imagine him needing a year or two in the system to be useful probably. Welcome aboard! :shield::shield:

    I don’t really agree with that. Underwood is still getting all the pieces together to fully utilize his style. I still remember people questioning Beilein if he would fit in the B1G after 3-4 seasons, and it ended up turning out pretty well for UM. Fun to speculate though, i suppose.

    He’s extended outside the state of Tennessee.

    Well if Miller didn’t have to pay for his lawyer he’d have more cash to buy a better C.

    Doubt it. A lot of rumors before the announcement that he’s already locked in another offer.

    Pretty damning evidence against Miller. I wonder if he’ll ever coach professionally again?

    Hearing Holyfield is high on the Illini, mainly because he’s high on Underwood. Hoping that’s enough to pan out for a commit.

    FBI College Basketball Corruption Investigation

    Shame that Wade and Miller won’t testify on the grounds that their relationship with Dawkins was “irrelevant” to college basketball corruption. These guys are going to get away with this, might as well cheat and pay players as much as you possibly can from here out.

    Thought it was interesting hearing Barnes admit he would have left for UCLA if they would have paid his buyout. Seems like that may leave a bad taste in Tennessee fans mouths?

    News-Gazette: Brad Underwood cleared in DIA Investigation into his coaching

    People who make false accusations should face penalties as severe as what the person being accused would face. Once you make false accusations about someone, there’s always a group that will believe them even after being proven innocent.

    Needs to be more versatile in the pinch post. 90% of the time he hands the ball off when someone wraps around, and teams were scouting that out very easily. The handoff got picked off a few times too.
