    I would go even further and say that if Head was drafted today he would be a much hotter commodity given the massive value placed on three point shooting. He was around 38 percent for his career. Feel same way about Brian Cook. Kofi, on the other hand, needs that time machine for 1995ish.

    This is getting weird. But you get one brain and spine, so I hope whatever is up he takes all the time he needs.

    Luther Head as a HS senior/frosh? He reminds me a lot of that. Luther Head as a Senior where he was a less explosive albeit extremely polished perimeter threat? Not so much…yet…

    Harper Jr has been a thorn in our side for what seems like a decade. Tough cover, but guys like that being a mismatch will be a thing of the past soon because the defensive potential of players like Melendez and Rodgers at the 3/4. Hopefully Damonte makes like difficult for him. I think we...

    They are a very different team away from home and they have no answer for Kofi. Plus, the flu and injuries have to abate at some point, right?

    Whelp, based on that information the only conclusion is that Bruce Weber is a biohazard.

    Looks like flu shots will be mandatory next year, lol. This is getting farcical with the bodies out—hope the boys keep their heads up and tread water until they mend up. Someone other than Kof and Plummer needs to be a double digit scorer and hero tonight.

    Well hey other than the flu ravaging the team, Belo’s concussion, Kofi’s suspension, and Trent’s knee, how are we doing?

    I don’t think there’s any chance this team implodes and misses the dance entirely. That said, I think the height of their ceiling will come down in large part to how they navigate this four game stretch, all against high majors (with two conference games). Win 3 out of 4 and that still keeps a...

    Illinois 94, UT Rio Grande Valley 85 Postgame

    In all seriousness, considering they’re down three starters and have had a different starting lineup 4 times this season, you just try and tread water and avoid bad losses until you can get healthy. I wish it was a laugher but here’s a few silver linings: we got some serious work in this game...
