    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (June 2019)

    We could use up to 16 OV's on August 1, 2019 , but presumably will spread those 16 around between August 1, 2019 and July 31, 2020). On August 1, 2020 we would accumulate another 12, plus still have available however many remain from the 16 we accumulate August 1, 2019.

    Edit: The summary at this link (interesting and helpful, to the extent random internet search results can be relied upon) indicates that the calendar runs August 1-July 31.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (June 2019)

    Per ESPN it looks like last year the NCAA moved from 24 to 28 official visits allowed per rolling 2-year period: "A student-athlete can visit a particular campus only once per year, and Division I schools will now be permitted to pay for 28 official visits over a rolling, two-year period (34...

    OK- I got sucked in. About 2:30 in, they start talking about Illinois, and the questioner says something about how Illinois doesn't win much compared to any of the other schools on his list, then asks "What can they do to get you to choose them over all these other schools?" I heard his answer...

    It made it all the more difficult to see the humor knowing the car Deon actually drove was a Firebird (far from new).

    If we are still desperate after their bowl game (*cough*) Andrew Trainer (6'7" 245 RS-FR), and Jordan Fagan (6'6" 300 SR) both have basketball backgrounds.

    My understanding is that he can't sign another NLI- what's the trigger for Miznoz to even be allowed to comment?

    Tre Watson named B1G Defensive Player of the Week

    Not to take away from the well-deserved honor, but did anyone else notice Tre getting a lecture from the ref in the first half? Tre made a tackle (for loss if I remember correctly) where it looked like there was some moderate helmet-to-helmet contact in the course of the tackle (looked pretty...

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (October 2016)

    IU is closer than Illinois, but I wouldn't say it's "right there." I don't know where his family lives, but it's about a half hour more from his high school to State Farm Center, a/k/a "the real Assembly Hall", than it is to Simon Skhodklsvsott Hall (I think I missed a j in there somewhere)...

    B1G to experiment with replay on charge/block calls

    One thing that could make it interesting is the new rule interpretation/point of officiating emphasis on the principle of verticality for this year. I recently saw a NCAA video (couldn't find it again- will provide a link if I do) from which I took that a defender is entitled , even from within...

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (April-June 2016)

    A quick search indicates these players were from top 25 RSCI to 60-something RSCI. Given that there are 60 NBA draft picks a year (and the fact that you can't teach height), I don't think Self exactly had to work miracles to get them a shot in the league.
