    10/30 Games

    if we are going to comment about the one rebound (and keep slamming someone who probably outperformed their ranking), then shouldn't we comment about the 16 points?

    Michael Jordan got cut from a basketball team in high school. One of the greatest myths out there... just not true.... he did not make the varsity as a sophomore (which was pretty typical at his school - one sophomore --tall -- did make it). He play junior varsity as a sophomore and varsity...

    issue is not so much the field being better.... it is the time the coaches would have to spend AWAY from the current team / training for interviews, offers, etc. and then getting the new person up to speed on what the overall plan is.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (August 2018)

    Almost always when a big name coach retires, there is a slide (at least for a while). Probably the only instance that there wasn't is Kansas (Williams to Self). Looked at what happened (for a while) after Dean Smith retired. Even Kentucky had some ugly years.

    Not agreeing or disagreeing with you but the # of NBA games someone plays really isn't a good measure to how good they were in college... Steve Alford played in less than 200 games in the NBA. Also -- very hard to compare eras -- who is to say that Augustine didn't play with any other good...

    Some schools allow their kids to graduate early and then have a partnership agreement with the local community college -- they still "attend" the high school (so the high school is getting credit for attendance for state aid) but they are really taking community college courses so at the end of...

    EIU 80, Illinois 67 (Exhibition) POSTGAME

    At an away gym? I thought they had a shootaround in Champaign and then took a bus to the game. So they had a shootaround, not just at Lantz. Hoosiers clip -- rim is still 10 foot high. Free throw line is still 15 feet away.
