    Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

    This is a great start, and doesn't include some quality transfers. The only "oof" to me was when that lineman from Marist chose to go play for the Barneys. Seemed like a Bielema kind of slobberknocker type, but you can't win them all. Love the Land of Lincoln flavor already in this class, as...

    Don’t worry. Iowa will fix it. A thorough investigation followed by firing the popcorn maker at Carver-Hawkeye who was clearly the root cause, and they move on.

    Go as Rick Pitino. He’s always got a job.

    Bruce Pearl has been really quiet lately, especially since they halted the distribution of his Nikes. He's probably in the discussion ( if you ask him)...

    Nobody on this board. I think Lieb is ahead of him for PT. Never should have left West Lafayette. He was a loooooooooooong shot for even the G League before the two transfers and now opt out. Created his own red flags... or his “whisperers” did.

    Pregame: Illinois at Northwestern, Thursday, January 7th, 8:00pm CT, BTN

    This feels right. But I wish I didn’t. I hope Kofi goes off versus the lab rats. I think if he dunks 2-3 times early on, maybe rattles the rim for effect, their front court may curl up in the fetal position by the first media time out. That’ll bode well. #BeatTheNerds

    Not a bad idea - maybe a new twist off the old Wisconsin offense only used one at a time. But that lucky one was behind a QB and nine 330 lb linemen. I can’t wait to roll out our version of the Hippo package on 1st and goal from the 1.

    I don’t buy this. He does this all this time to puff up, then use it for leverage ($ for him or assistants) and to tell his recruits how cool he is. He is a college coach through and through. He may leave, but I’d be surprised. He could go 4-8 the next 5 years and nobody in Evanston would...

    Which was followed up by the best pregame intro ever when the Loosiers played here the next year and Chester Frazier gave him the Chest Bump Heard Round The World. Chet will forever be in my Top 10 Illini if only for that pregame intro. Fantastic.
