    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread

    Any kid who joins a college basketball program fresh out of high school is about 99% sure to not be in shape by P5 standards. There are very few Zion Williamsons. Most of these kids know that. So no, I don't think it was harsh. It was a simple statement of fact. In this context out of shape...

    How is that harsh? The kid just showed up and has had virtually no practice or training with the team. He's basically a good high school player sitting at the end of the bench. He's obviously not physically or mentally up to speed. He wasn't a 5 star lottery pick or something.

    Well, in Lunardi's latest Bracketology, he has no Big Ten teams earning a one seed but a whopping 3 of the 4 two seeds are from the Big Ten (us, Michigan, Iowa). I guess maybe he is coming around on us a little?

    Illinois 81, Northwestern 56 Postgame

    For it to take the top slot over Wake Forest for me, it would either have to be a team I hate or a team that is ranked top 5 (or both). Try though the league and announcers might, Northwestern has never and will never be a rivalry game.

    Wh... where do you think info on our program comes from? It either comes from news media with actual access or posters who claim to have access. The purpose of the message board is to discuss and speculate. EDIT: Also GIFs

    I imagine this release was ready to go yesterday given the FootballScoop articles, but... you know... busy day.

    There was no "i" and the "g" was lowercase. I don't remember the rest of the letters/numbers after "g0."

    QC has much more of a g0 vibe than 0440 does. I assumed 0440 was black shirt guy.

    Well if you believe his current avatar, we will be hiring the Ryan brothers.

    Oh, I wasn't mean to him. I just pointed out that I enjoyed that they took the time to photoshop the coaches' shirts but didn't bother to do any of the other background clues.

    So... I did nothing wrong? Cool.

    My pick is Walters, and here is why: I hate Mizzou with such a passion that even the appearance that our dumpster fire program is considered a step up from Mizzou would make my day. It would make my week, really. It's a short term win but I'm petty.

    1) Were there actually people holding out hope for that? 2) This dude just scrubbed away team names from his jerseys (poorly) but didn't bother doing it for conference logos?

    I especially liked the one of Tank Wright, which had goal posts with Michigan pads on them and brick walls that match those of the Big House.
