Some I would suspect, however BU has professed how he changed in order to not take the ship down so to speak. He is a great steward of the ILLINI program and honestly trying to get the program back. He knows what the ILLINI basketball means to the fanbase.How much does the gentry hire have to do with this years success?
I believe this was the 7th game, because he had gone 6 games without a turnover and that was significant because he had primary ball handing duties.Would someone be able to tell me when Trent took over the main ball handling responsibilities? Can't remember exactly which game but know it has been a key component of the step forward Illini have made. Thanks
Is Fran up for COY yet? I never expected them to be this good. I’m actually not sure if they are, but they’ve been playing well esp considering their injuries.
Seems that Steve Pikiell should be considered as well, no? Just think how much better they might be if Eugene Omoruyi had not transferred to Oregon.
He deserves consideration for sure.Seems that Steve Pikiell should be considered as well, no? Just think how much better they might be if Eugene Omoruyi had not transferred to Oregon.
I mentioned this on another thread but it probably was not seen by many as I posted it long after the thread started to die down but Cliff Omoruyi (no relation) has narrowed his list of schools to 4 or 5 and Rutgers is one of them. Replace one Omoruyi with another Omoruyi.
I’ve wondered the same thing, but I have to say this is a far different system than we saw the first two years. Somehow Underwood has become much more flexible and it’s working. I expect Gentry is at least some part of that because we know Underwood has high regard for him.I assume it would be a minimal amount since he didn't get here until late August. Could be wrong.
Don’t know BBV’s physical condition but would suspect they would preserve his redshirt (assuming he qualifies). Would think Tevian a more logical candidate. Probably mostly see an increase in Kipper’s, Dre’s and DaMonte’s minutes. May see Tyler.If and when Alan Griffin has to sit for a game or two ... who picks up his minutes. Will we finally see Bosmans-Verdonk get some minutes, or is he still hurt?

When I was watching video of the game I saw one of the passes from Ayo and at first thought my video player was sped up (as I often do this when watching videos). Ayo threw a bullet and Kofi handled it for the easy dunk. He has been so much fun to watch this year.Kofi has the best hands I have seen for a big man at Illinois for a long time. He must have been a goalie in soccer when he was a kid because he seems to grab everything.
