You are 100% correct. I wonder which legacy will be the one that endures. It was a different time. Now teams will sell their collective souls for a chance at a championship run. He kicked a championship caliber team out of town. I think that will haunt him more than the credit he deserves. And frankly, he’s just not that likable IMO.I very much dislike Krause, but he also deserves credit for building those championship teams! He may have let his ego get in the way towards the end, but you can't take what he built away from him.
he told potentially the best coach of all time that even if he went 82-0 he wouldn’t be back.You are 100% correct. I wonder which legacy will be the one that endures. It was a different time.

Why not make an actual wiki article and share it here for contributions?I don't seem to have new thread posting privileges, and don't know where this would belong otherwise, but would anyone else enjoy a thread on Illini pro players outside the NBA?
It would make for a great Wiki IMO. Just in my time following the Illini there have been a number of outstanding players that were borderline NBA where there was discussion throughout their final season or leading into the draft about them having a shot. Not sure if Dan has any interest in expanding beyond message board functionality, but that kind of info becomes more relevant to discussion around draft time, and I'm sure there are many other topics that would similarly benefit.
I think he handled himself well and I also think the shaming that some are doing is wrong.Miami Heat's Meyers Leonard chooses to stand during national anthem
"I [was] aware some of the backlash that could happen. I understand. However, I believe in my heart that I did the right thing," Leonard told Spears. "Our world right now is black and white. There is a line in the sand, and it says if I don't kneel, then I'm not with Black Lives Matter. That is not true."
"I understand that [kneeling during the anthem] is not about the flag and the military, but to me, it is. Based upon real-life experiences and real raw emotion that I've had in my life, that is what that means to me," said Leonard, who was wearing military-style boots, backpack and mask.
He added: "And I'm hopeful that people that don't know me can either learn or ask. I did in my heart what was right to me."
