Adam Miller transfers to LSU

Good luck kid. Whatever his reason for leaving it’s over. Let’s focus on the team at hand, how we get back to the Tourney and make it past the second round.
We addressed his leave with great transfers and recruits. Mark Smith similarities, both overrated.

Overrated? I thought he had a great Freshman year as the 4th/5th best player on the team

I'm not sure that isn't our assistants saying goodbye 🤔

AM wasnt a good fit...Ill say it again, Trent DW and Ayo stuck with their commitments and Giorgi and others put the team over position and playing time. Those guys changed the trajectory of this program and will be remembered for it.

Question: Are the Illini better off or worse off that Adam chose The Orange in the beginning?

Answer One: Better off, because the Illini need to show they can grab the top Illini ballers that have for too many times gone elsewhere.

Answer Two: Worse off, because Smith and Miller leaving send a message to in-State talent that it’s just easier to make it somewhere else. (Yes, there’s Ayo – but he’s a once-a-decade-or-so special talent/person).

And how does Miller look at his year in Orange? A great learning experience and a fun group of guys to play with, or, I should have gone somewhere else from the start?

The classic Glass Half Full? Or something else?

The good news is Ma. Smith didn't really light the world on fire after transferring. AM won't either and will probably end up shooting 3s in the corner again before transferring, or not getting drafted next year. Pinson is their PG, AM will at the 2, perhaps even off the bench.

I was curious how many LSU players have been drafted recently. Since 2010, there have been 9 LSU players drafted. We have had 8…since 2000.

Perhaps staying in Illinois to play in perhaps the largest shadow ever cast by a player here.....was too big a challenge?

So weird. Money or a girl.
