All crystal balls to Kentucky. Are we really in it?
My memory is a little foggy but as I recall, Henson and Eddie Sutton were in a fierce recruiting battle for Olaf Blab. Blab teamed with Douglas and Winters, taking us all the way to the Sweet Sixteen.Trying to recall if we've ever won a recruiting battle with Kentucky. (Seldom are we competing for the same kids, I realize. I can only think of players we lost.)
If We get Hopkins it will be interesting to see the changes in our systems assuming Kofi leaves.
Hey, don’t forget Nesbitt is on this team and that he can shoot it pretty well too. =]If We get Hopkins it will be interesting to see the changes in our systems assuming Kofi leaves. We will have a lot of size with Giorgi, Lieb, Cole, BBV, Jermaine, (Maybe MAC), and Hopkins. Much different from Kofi on both offense and defense but suspect it is favored size with BU as they include shooters. Backcourt with Hutch, Grandison and Goode also has some size and shooting ability. Can’t remember an Illini team with this kind of size and shooters (at least I think they can shoot). Current NBA style players with a couple of PG’s in Curbelo and Adam. Tough to defend and long on defense.
So apparently Snow and Piper just gave Chrystal Ball picks on Nesbitt and Pipers was a flip? Anyone with info to share for the needy?
OH stop it TC. lol. I have not saw Nesbitt play live, but I have seen plenty of video. I have saw Weston live a lot. Weston is a junkyard dog, Nesbitt is a dog period. That's why Nesbitt is my favorite recruit.
I want the B1G to always be the best conference in the country. It puzzles me that so many on this site say that the athletes shouldn't be concerned with competition but, many on this board don't want the best football or basketball players going to opposing B1G schools.I don't want him in the B10 if he's not wearing O&B.
I will concede the fact that Olaf played at Illinois for 2 years after his older (more talented) brother bolted for Indiana. And I guess it's possible that Eddie Sutton wanted Olaf.My memory is a little foggy but as I recall, Henson and Eddie Sutton were in a fierce recruiting battle for Olaf Blab.
