Regardless of the hashtag, the environment for the VT vs Clemson game has been crazy since Gameday this morning. Good planning by Buzz and company to have Landers on campus for it.

Another weekend goes by and we wait, we had our visits with both, CC and Nolley, hopefully the staff living in there back pocket and homes lately, will be the thing that stays with them. Something will happen soon.

I expect that it would by the end of this season. At least we should have some relief, relatively.

EDIT: Obviously they weren't all in-homes but I know I've seen where coaches visit homes at different times.
I think there's a limit of 7 face-to-face contacts with a maximum of 3 of those off campus.

Been a fan over 50 years, I don't ever remember easier. But, thru the years there been some mighty good moments, that makes it all worth it.


Got to think this year might be other good moment

It is already orders of magnitude easier than it was 18 months ago.

Huge weekend for #Illini hoops on the recruiting scene. Had a good conversation with @jakeweingarten on some big announcements coming up.

Doesn't necessarily mean good news, but nice he had a good conversation.
I guess.

Speaking of Jake, I didn't even know we were out of it.

Do not believe false reports of ‘18 George Conditt eliminating Illinois from his top-3. They’re false, #Illini are still in it.

New http://Rivals.com reporter @jakeweingarten will be announcing decisions for Landers Nolley and Colin Castleton this week.

Conditt's dad tweeted a pic of George in a Lobos Jersey next to a pic in a Cyclone jersey and said pick one or something like that, the twittersphere went crazy thinking those were his final two

It's really too bad we weren't the last OV for any of our biggest targets. For some reason I have the usual feeling that we finish bridesmaids for Conditt, Castleton, and Nolley. I hope I'm wrong but it really hurts that the last thing on their minds is a visit somewhere other than Illinois.

Its all good. Those who want to choose Illini will be grateful they did. Best wishes to those who dont and I hope their regrets are not too severe as they witness our success.

Nolley has already made a choice, but is waiting to announce it.
