    Is there an NCAA rule that states the max # of "D.J.'s" any one team can have?

    Respectfully disagree - look at the second half of the 17-18 season. I think in many of those he was the best player on the court.

    Totally agree. More than anything, he just needs to get his head straight and find his role. I think back about how many games he's played in where he was the most dominant player on the court. We need him to be that Kipper again. Confident he can be.

    Has it ever been stated in the media that Higgs is leaving for medical reasons? I've never heard it outside of this board....

    Hey! You forgot "pretty" as in "fairly" in that quote! "pretty overmatched." This board needs all they can get :)

    Illini Football 2019

    Yeah, I hear you, but.........perhaps I've underestimated the hip injury effect and lack of playing time against proven D1 talent.

    Illini Football 2019

    I'm curious how the 2016 #15 overall recruit becomes the 35th best transfer in 2019 (e.g. Larry Boyd listed as 14th best transfer). Seems a little harsh.

    What are the chances of landing a football recruit (or transfer) today? Are we at 50-50?

    Each of the 3 announcements has represented an increase in 247 rankings - if you believe in that sort of thing - could a Mookie announcement be coming?

    Illinois 74, Northwestern 69 OT POSTGAME

    I am glad DMW is an Illini too....I guess what i'm saying is....maybe he doesn't have to be a star for us....but I still think he has the potential to be. Everyone (including Da'Monte) seems to have forgotten that. Why relegate him to "role player" when he can be so much more? I'm not giving up...

    Illinois 74, Northwestern 69 OT POSTGAME

    Why Da'monte has not progressed his game baffles me. He could be our most talented player, but seems to have confidence issues and lacks the will / tenacity to take over a game. Would love to see him take it to the next level. He has the potential to be an outstanding player in the league and...

    Illinois 79, Michigan State 74 POSTGAME

    You know who I actually very, very suprisingly enjoyed as an announcer before he took another gig....Tom Arnold, I mean Crean. Really did not like that man on the sidelines in the B10, but he kinda was impressive as a color guy. To me, he was the Chucky of college basketball.

    Maybe if Illinois fans starting tweeting him directly on his need for conditioning and the importance of defense at the college level............... (i jest, please don't).
