Whooaaa easy there, all Iím saying is that it bothered me, Iím extremely impatient. Iím not questioning his decision to appease people or not appease people.

Ebo wouldn't have taken a millisecond of PT away from Okoro. Okoro rejected all-you-can-eat minutes from day 1 at UI to sit on the bench and learn and win at Oregon. Those are the facts.

So you viewed feed, did any others?

If I remember correctly about 15 others were watching at the time I was, but the replay was available to watch throughout the night. It was a very unexciting feed of him just chilling and talking to friends who were also viewing. A few people just happened to submit questions about the rumors, Ebo disregarded them at first and then later said to not believe it if it didn’t come from his mouth. He was also doing a joint live feed with Monte for a bit, all in good spirits cracking jokes left and right. I wouldn’t be worried.

Amazing technology any more, thanks. Guys just chatting on video. You would hope , that all is good. Stories get started with little or nothing. Maybe this puts it to rest

100% opinion. May end up being a fact but that is an absolute opinion by definition.

I am thrilled Underwood got Ayo. I still cannot believe he landed Tevian Jones. If Samba Kane becomes a Pro, that will be 3 of the best players the Illini have had in the last 20 years.

+1 Baffling how Tevian Jones didn’t have more high major offers.

Folks, weed love it if you could just stay on topic while we try to hash this issue out. This is a big reason why this board has ganja to the dogs. At the very least, could we just spliff the difference? It really cannabis this difficult, right?

Just rewatched the Big Ten show on the 1989 Flyin' Illini that I had on the DVR. Talked back then of those guys all being pretty similar height and playing positionless basketball. Those guys were all athletes and as Bardo called themselves, "junkyard dogs". We get that mentality back, and these guys can start something special. I believe guys like Frazier, Ayo, Tevian and Alan can be those junkyard dogs!

Good article on Ayo. Looks like he has taken the criticism of his outside shot's release to heart and has made some good progress on it already. Between this and him stating that he wanted to focus on defense to get on the USA team, I'm really loving that he seems to be a really smart, hard-working kid/player.
