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

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.
I knew Matt and I never got an Illini vibe from him.

From the outside lookin in, Miller and Curbelo seem way more pro Illini.

After the recruiting process, Humphrey gave an interview and discussed that he liked Illinois but didn't come here because he was offered so late by Weber. Basically said that it wasn't his fault or Illini fans fault- it was just that he got more comfortable and familiar with other schools. Maybe it was a lot of speculation and assumption by Illini fans.

One of my first posts on this site, I was giddy as a school girl about Caldwell and Evans. Gawd, I hope this turns out better. This weekend has me wearing tinted glasses again. Fool me once...

I believe we have 3 rides to give, so no one would have to go.

Always Illini
Central Illinois
I may be wrong but I think mom is a big time sports and entertainment attorney. I think she's Ric Flair's agent among other things. At least Michael will have good advice for any future professional career.
Great. With our luck he will come here and the NCAA will give us the death penalty for playing an athlete who had an agent because he talked to his mom.
 
I agree and the staff agrees too. Was just pointing out that we didn't cool on him or slow play him based off this weekends visit.
No doubt, you have way more incite into the inner workings of this staff than I do. Curbelo reminds me of that Shane Larkin kid who gave us so much trouble in the RD of 32 game for Miami. Hopefully we can pay them back a bit with this recruitment.

It's a stiff competition to be sure, but the obsessive playing of "OMG who is going to transfer?" as soon as we get even the faintest whiff of recruiting success is my least favorite thing about IllinoisLoyalty.
This sets up well for a poll

But, I admit that one is not necessary.
