I have not seen a Late Nite in The Phog attendee list, but it will be pretty telling if Ayo's name is on the list. Date for the event is Sept. 30th.

He'll not be attending that as he's scheduled to take his official to WF on that weekend.

And WF leads for Ayo and USC is their main competition. (well, according to some people on their message boards). Everybody leads for Ayo!

.

Wake Forest is in competition for Ayo as is USC, but they are definitely not the leaders in this recruitment.

I think we all know who the leader is.

I am hearing, Carte'Are Gordon will be headed to Mizzery. No formal announcement yet, but it is coming.

Cuonzo strikes again.

Yeah, after his post on social media about it, I knew it was over.

Probably not wise to anger Ford.

But can you imagine how fun it is to be a Tiger fan right now? We'd be over the moon if Martin came here and landed us the Porters and got Gordon to flip.

While I do feel that we got the better coach and will be better in the long run because of it, Illinois fans, outside of apparently you and S&C, would not be immune to the head rush of suddenly having an elite incoming class with multiple lottery picks.

Is that objectivity my eyes are seeing? Who would have ever thought it possible here?

If we keep taking shots like this pretty soon the only posters that will be left are completely devoid of information idiots like me. That will be super interesting.

The (Illinois) presentation was nice. Very personable, each coach added something different. Ayo Dosunmu just shared with me. #Illini

Not this Illini fan. What is happening at misery isn't what would have happerned here had CM been hired by UI. Is someone trying to change the narrative that was floating around here during the hiring process, that the Porters were never going to follow CM here?

Thank you, Mike. fwiw, that sums up my feelings.
