Sure if we get him on campus it gives us another chance to pitch the program, but we have made enough pitches over the last year that one more is unlikely to change his mind.

Sure, at this point the longer it goes the better our chances because it is more time for him to change his mind or a sign that he hasn't completely decided.

It seems pretty obvious he is at a minimum a heavy Oregon lean, and our chances are somewhere between slim and none...but stuff happens and until he announces there is always a chance, but no sane person is betting on us.
You may not be in the right place if you are looking for sane.

If you can score me Pat Benatar tickets, we'll call it even.

Well unfortunately my pixel was dying every couple hours after a full charge, also it was extremely warm, too hot to touch sometimes. I loved the pixel ...about as much as Damone loved Stacy...

I blame Shaun Livingston. I heard about his pending decision on sports talk, found an Illini blog, and have wasted 1000's of hours since then.

I'll admit, my battery life isn't what it once was, but I will just replace it with a Pixel 3 this fall. I can't switch because it has all of my saved autocorrects, like Damonte or Dosunmu. I can't be bothered to reteach a phone such things.

I dated a girl that was almost related to Pat Benatar, so close.

Without any solid info, we all wait and watch. The staff keeping the lid on all recruitment info, does get little frustrating, but it's the best way to let recruit do his thing. See what tomorrow brings, your not hearing anything about any new targets, I'd say BU has pushed all chips in on Okoro. Still like our chances.
