    I never thought about the next assistant coming from the pro ranks. That might be why they are saying be patient. It's possible that the coach is still coaching on a playoff team. Great point!

    Texas is going to ranked with Beard coaching and Florida State has been pretty good the last few years and have gotten a few players drafted. Not to mention the weather in those 2 places. He is going to start anywhere. With that being said, there is a big need for him here.

But before him, I cant remember the last time the #1 player in the state came to Illinois. Adam Miller was #2( depending on who you ask) Kendrick Nunn was #2. The #1 player seemed...

    I don't feel like there is anything wrong with casting a wide net. Look at the team from the past year. There are players from all over the country and all over the world.

    Coaching Carousel

    Defensively Nunn was better. He didnt get to shine alot on offense & was the second option his whole high school career. Miller was good during his first two years( freshman in Peoria, sophomore at mp)then was a real offensive weapon the last two years. I'd say Miller was a 18 year old
