following this. looking at attending if things fall into placeIllinois will be in Destin, Fla. for the Emerald Coast Classic this year, along with Florida, Iowa State and Oregon.
The event will take place on Nov. 27-29.
Anyone heard any update on the status of this tournament?
I favor 18 year old Glenlivet, thanks for asking!I like your thinking but need your brand of scotch.
Was interesting that BU (interview Illinois Nation 100) said the biggest change required by Hawkins was not skills but body development. If they come in June, Fletch can do a lot. Also said excellent bb IQ and passer. Think there needs to be a three man rotation with Kofi and Giorgi and would be ecstatic if he is it. Don’t remember the poster that said Hawkins would make an impact immediately but sure hope he is right.
Grandison is the 4, not HutchIf Ayo and Kofi do return this is what we will see for a line up I think:
I really can’t see any other starting line up. Miller will start no doubt. Curbelo and Damonte will be first off the bench.
Yeah, lotta hardship from the situation. I admire guys who dig in and deal with adversity though. I'm happy with the roster as it stands, but having a leader like Ayo back would take us up another notch or two. Pinch me in a couple months --this seems a bit unreal.Ayo's stage was stolen, and there is still unfinished business.
He obviously reads this board and is messing with everyone. Next he's going to put up a picture of him wearing a White Sox shirt, and you're all going to assume he's decided to play professional baseball instead.Looks like he removed #unfinishedbusiness and his cover photo is now black.
I don't know what the record number of "likes" is for a post on Loyalty, but 44 (and counting) is pretty impressive for a post about a sport out of season. Illini fans definitely put the fanatic in fan lol. And I wouldn't have it any other way.
