GalloppingGost: “It’s a different era and there is no loyalty with these kids anymore.”

Miller showed loyalty by initially choosing The Orange. But with many people today, there is little to no level of patience. They want things to happen RIGHT NOW. For Miller, it didn’t. With the Transfer Portal doors swinging so freely now, patience will be in even shorter supply.

“I listened to Mr. Bardo’s take on this on his podcast and he was spot on. Stay at Illinois and you are set for life. The second largest alumni network in the world. You become a legend at tour state school, and you are set.”

This is a tremendous advantage to carry with you for life for those who take advantage of it. But again, this involves a longer time-frame-kind-of thinking which is in very short supply these days. Perhaps this is something that needs to be emphasized much more by whomever ends up recruiting for The Beloved.

“In my opinion these kids are coddled, told they are the next (fill in the blank) and simply are not emotionally ready to be a professional. They have too many greedy handlers not looking out for Their best interest.”

Once again, this seems to be a generational thing. Years ago, the ‘coddling’ and the ‘handlers’ buzzing around you like crazed bees was not as big a problem. Now, it is. And the young guys are vulnerable to it and get sucked in. Who doesn't want to be told they are the Next Big Thing?

“I like guys who want to be at Illinois. I like players that represent the program in a good light and see the benefits of suiting up for Illinois. Should be an exciting time in Champaign for some time to come and really looking forward to how next years team comes together.”

You sound like you would be an excellent Recruiter. Or – at least – writing the Mission Statement for Illini Recruiters!

Yes, in general it is a different era and those who figure out how to play it right will rule the Ball World for the next 20 years.

I'd be in favor of a Revenge and Regret thread where people can go to vent such things.

"Did you see KSU lost last night!"

"Ha, ha! Kahlil Whitney went 0-7 from the floor."

"Man, I can't believe we let Liddell slip away. Just dropped 20 and 10 on Iowa."
