His first couple of years, maybe Chet got some flack about the lack of an outside shot but he took care of that. I don't remember any other flack except that Izzo apparently likes him, which some would regard as a negative. LOL
That's a little bit of an exaggeration, IMO.
So far we've just lost AM, Giorgi and probably Kofi a big hit, but heck
almost everyone out there has lost players to the portal this year.
I think we've got AM and Giorgi replaced already with potentially comparable talent.
We lose Curbelo and...
Yep, another big would be nice if Kofi doesn't come back but other than that I'd say we're in pretty good shape especially since IIRC we have one more scholly remaining even if Kofi does come back so I think BU will get us one more good one from the portal.
Of course I'm assuming we don't lose...
From his article: "The only way Illinois can fix this problem is to consistently win under Underwood for a decade." earlier in the article he complained about Kruger and Self leaving after winning consistently. LOL
Coran is not fast enough for WR (prove me wrong kid), IMO and we have depth already at TE.
I'm no insider, but these things have a way of working themselves out.
I liked it when we played Peters and Williams at the same time.
Keep them both happy hopefully and run more trick plays for gosh sakes.
Yes plus a 4 year contract without the unreal pressure that you get at KY to win right away,
assuming the reports of Illinois offering $1M+ per year for 4 years.
But who knows maybe they like that kind of pressure.
