    For what its worth, Malzahn's contract had language that future earnings do not impact the money owed if fired by Auburn. He could sign a new big contract at Illinois and still receive every penny owed from Auburn.

    Coaching Discussion/Carousel

    Based on his different coaching stops Lea could do better than expected. I know Chip Long got let go at ND but he is still a proven OC at the P5 level. Long's former OL coach, Harry Hiestand, is available and would be welcomed back to Illinois. Lea's former boss in Syracuse, Scott Schafer...

    In all fairness, Stoker is very busy telling Illini fans to buy NW jerseys.

    I was just going to ask where the Powell twitter callout fit in Title's timeline. Calling out a BIG10 staff for pulling the offer of a prospect that ended up at Murray State was an odd move by Coach Sunkett.

    Transfers Thread

    Any word on possible transfers out? Has the staff already had end of year conversations with current players?

    Would have preferred if Lovie could find Byrd a job in the NFL.

    I concede to your knowledge of this scheme. Please explain to me why the staff no longer needs to recruit P5 quality safeties moving forward so I can stop worrying.

    Are you asking me why it is a concern that our coaches have failed to land any quality recruits for 2 years at a position that accounts for 2/11 of the defense?

    Not as important as continually landing a QB or OL/DL prospects but failing to land even 1 in 2 years needs to be a major cause for concern. Add in that no one on the current roster was able to competently fill in the spot opposite Brown this year and it becomes one of the biggest ?s for this...

    Still time to find a hidden gem in this class but as of now it looks like Illinois has failed to land a P5 quality HS safety in back to back classes.

    A question maybe for Twangers or others with more knowledge... if Illinois misses out on Doyle are there backup options for LB recruits? Sounds like the only other option right now would rather run track in college.

    Not sure if he graduates in time to play next year but Jamyest Williams (transfer from South Carolina) would be a huge boost to the safety group.

    0440 - Is it a NFL or retirement decision? Or does he stay at Illinois if nothing in the NFL opens up? If only there was a recently fired coach available with recruiting ties to Missouri and P5 experience as a safeties coach.

    If Price is out recruiting... which assistant coach is not?
