Ayo & Feliz are huge losses. But, man, oh, man, Miller and Curbelo are flippin' fantastic adds! Huge hats off to the staff for landing these studs. Curbelo is the best pure point we've had since Deron. He may not be the scorer or athlete that Garris was, but he's a flat out baller. Can really run the offense. Super duper stoked.
I’m loving the good vibes, but I’m still waiting til they announce to proclaim them ours.
 
Absolutely love looking at 247 and seeing ADAM MILLER ILLINI 100 PERCENT
THEN CURBELO ILLINI 100 PERCENT... could and should be a great year for illini o. The court and on the recruiting trail...
Does anyone have any other insight on miller and curbelo?
 
If we get Curbelo and Miller, I have some similarities for games. Miller reminds me of Nunn with a slightly better handle, more built, and more fluid in scoring. Curbelo kind of has a game between like a slightly faster Andre Miller, less built, and better shot and not quite as fast, Tre Jones, but a little more fluid in half court.

It's theoretically possible we have a problem with total scholarships, but it's almost always the other way around --people make dream scenarios thinking we're recruiting more positions than we can ultimately take. Just doesn't work out that way. And the fact is, there's a ton of turnover in college bball that makes it even more likely you wind up scrambling late. Keep in mind we've had the scramble issue for several seasons running, despite the optimism.
 
Great news regarding curbelo if true. Does anyone know how well he plays?
Also the latest posts seem to indicate Miller is ours. Did I miss something?
 
All you freaking people can't freakin stand prosperity if we get the 2 guards and Hawkins? you know who goes? Hamlin, from Lincoln. 4 scholarships you guys need to wake up and quit bitching, these coaches are doing their job! quit moaning. Your the same !!! Bums who are sitting in your seats clapping. Pathetic. Stand up old folks, that's been a huge problem in BB and football. Period
what are you even upset about?

You forgot "Get off my lawn."
 
If Miller, Curbelo, and Hawkins happens ... what will we do this spring? We can't complain about enough official visits or check the transfer portal daily.
Start reviewing the lack of progress with locking up Kofi's replacement, the transfer out prior to 2021, or the overall lack of signing the 21,22,23 class' ahead of schedule so that we can focus on the 24,25,26 class.... ;)

With you. The ultimate Illini kick in the teeth would be being convinced we have them both and then getting let down.
The last time I recall everyone being very confident about 2 players was Matt Humphrey and Michael Dunigan. They went to Oregon. Maybe more positive signs for Miller and Curbelo. Humphrey and Dunigan were more speculation I recall.
