    Illinois Football Recruiting Thread (February-April 2021)

    The One? Beason? Cooper? Love? BheBhe? I mean, it was time for a change but the recruiting hasn't been better yet. I'm very excited about what this staff is doing. I have to agree that I like Donovan's mechanics and footwork. A nice base to work with.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (March 2021)

    End of the games = Miller Time. I thought he was really good at the end of the year despite being a 5th or 6th scoring option. His defense is outstanding for a freshman. Franklin would be nice, but hoping we can get a stretch 4 (if Austin can't be that). Seemed like the one piece we were...

    Pregame: Illinois vs Drexel, Friday, March 19th, 12:15pm CT, TBS

    About Drexel, I really want to see another 50-60 point drubbing from this team. Those first two games were unlike any I'd seen before and I've been watching the Illini a long time. With that said, hard to do against any tourney team. The 2001 team was pretty damn dominate until we ran into the...

    Was that the team we demolished as the #1 seed in 2001 when people were saying we didn't deserve a #1 seed?

    Pregame: Illinois vs Northwestern, Tuesday, February 16th, 8:00pm CT, BTN

    Nebraska is better than people give them credit for. They got a win at Penn State. We shouldn't panic as we have not had good times at Pinnacle Bank Arena. The home court advantage is still strong in the Big Ten even without fans. No 15 point deficit this time! Go U!! Of I!!

    How many high school coaches are there in Illinois? What's the math and hours spent on this outreach? Just curious how long this will take. I like this approach. It's bold and hope it pays off!

    What about Brian Cook? Love CH's skill set. Love he's from Sactown too. My cousins by marriage who know him say he's a nice kid.

    Probably not. I just wanted to give a realistic score projection. I felt giving the Hawkeyes 0 points was unrealistic. 7 is maybe too kind to them. 192 for us seemed low but BBV is coming off the injury so he may only get 25.

    I think because must see TV Friday night with probably little eyeball competition. I'm pretty sure that with one more scUM loss before our matchup with them, we actually control our own destiny for the B10 regular season title. Hopefully Brad has got this ship going in the right direction now...

    I think you may be thinking of Hobbs. Btw--love your username. My aunt & uncle used to live in a community outside of Peoria named Lake Camelot. Assume it's the same. Brings back good memories.

    I believe Fulton Steamer is the nickname for those that attend Fulton, IL high school. Fulton is on the Mississippi across from Clinton, Iowa.
