    Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

    If I was an athlete trying to be immediately eligible, I would present the Mark Smith case as precedent for the NCAA granting hardship waivers due to literally any reason whatsoever.

    this is HUGE!!!! If we can keep a mass exodus from occurring again this offseason, things might FINALLY start looking up for the program. Great news.

    2018-2019 Predictions Thread

    Mark me down as a 14-17 vote. Wish I could predict more wins, but I just don't see it unless our bigs majorly outperform their rankings. Thu, Nov 08___Evansville W Tue, Nov 13___Georgetown W Mon, Nov 19___Gonzaga (Maui Invitational) L Tue, Nov 20___Arizona or Iowa State (Maui Invitational) L...

    Ohio State: Urban Meyer suspended 3 games

    Yup. It's disgusting that just like Izzo, he'll still be looked upon as a role model because his team wins games. It's absurd to me that in 2018, institutions can get away with covering up blatantly obvious cases of abuse, and yet it happens all the time. Wake me up if anything happens other...

    Love Blackthorn, Dewey's is one of my favorites too. Just stay away from Imo's or any "St Louis" style pizza

    2 players arrested

    stupid, but if they're getting arrested, better it was something like this and not any sort of violence/abuse. I'm sure the hours will be a good lesson for them. Also how do I get in on mounting that statue for $1150?

    Illini Football 2018

    I would argue that pro sports teams should have an easier time turning things around. With revenue sharing, all teams can offer the same type of money and have the same salary cap, so talent can be persuaded to come to a losing franchise. Worse teams also get better draft picks so in theory they...

    Update: Grad transfer WR Jalen Greene to Utah State

    Weird. I just did a google search and found the utah state message board talking about him coming there. People on there were asking for a link as well but nobody had provided one. The guy's a mystery.

    Nice. I want to see how Mac Mcclung does for them next season. He was committed to Rutgers for a while. His highlight tapes are pretty ridiculous.

    hahaha. I was hoping I'd be around when Cuonzo came by yesterday so that I could spit on him, but he must have had the in home earlier in the day.

    Saw a car full of basketball coaches leaving Ramey's house on Monday. Pretty sure it was Texas as they were wearing orange. I know Ok State is still on him, but it looked like Texas orange to me.

    So turns out Courtney Ramey is my next door neighbor. I bought this place a few months ago and have been fixing it up. I met his parents and knew they had a son in high school, but didn't put it all together until a bunch of recruitment letters showed up in my mailbox today by mistake. There...

    I like how it was always JFG, but after a few years FJG was much more appropriate

    2018 Off Season Thread

    Not surprising at all. I live in STL now, and the media is definitely pro Miznoz. Gordon, who wrote this is a Miznoz alum. That's why it always brings me great joy to see the Tigers fail at anything and everything.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (March 2018)

    Ah the good ole' ward kiss of death. That said we could really use a few commits from the group of Jones/Hinson/Ramey and a solid big man transfer. That happens, and things will be looking up. Without some more solid pieces coming in though, it's hard to see next year going too smoothly.

    So pumped to have Isaiah aboard. Also since I live in STL I'm super pumped to see all the Mizzou fans pouting. Their tears sustain my happiness

    Cuonzo has never been able to "reload" bc he's never been in a spot long enough where he's had to. He's usually run out of town before then.

    Leron Black

    nah, for some reason Leron has a reputation for being an excellent rebounder, but he averaged fewer than 5/game in B1G play last year...not even close to top 20 in the league. Depending on who else we bring in, it's possible that our rebounding could improve. With that said, he's obviously...

    This. is. HUGE. To get a player of this caliber to commit this early in the recruiting cycle is fantastic for the staff. It's hard to be the first one to commit to a program that has been struggling. So pumped Beason was willing to be that guy! Hopefully now it will be easier to sell the rest of...
