This. People act like guys want to transfer. Transferring is often a last resort. It's not an easy decision to leave what's comfortable.
They must've not seen the posts from yesterday where it was started all the players are staying and that Podz is the only one on the fence, and may need talking to in order to convince him to stay.

I can't believe everyone's not most worried about whether Hutch is gonna stay? I sure hope he doesn't jump ship to UK. Maybe he just declares for the draft now? :unsure:

This is pure genius on Whitman's part.

If we FAIL, his actions will

have told every fan that he is serious about making Illinois a national player
have told his head coach that he will go to the mat for him
have every assistant in America watching what is happening at Illinois

If he succeeds, all of the above plus we have OA
I agree. I still think UK will counter higher but I feel better about sustained success today than I did yesterday

Mostly because he mentioned it when he committed here.
Oh so Curbelo said, "I'm at Illinois strictly because of Orlando". Got it.

Why paraphrase or alter what people originally said just because it's convenient to support an argument? This isn't even just you, People love doing it and it leads to fear mongering.

Athletic department is much better run these days. It only leaks rumors when it is in Illinois best interest to leak. The large numbers being tossed about are a much stronger statement of how Josh wants Illinois sports to be perceived than any speech he could give.

The real baller move for JW would be to also make an offer to Jai Lucas while he's at it. 😄

Lon Tay asked Piper if it was time to panic. Piper said yes.

You lose OA, and the Caribbean connection is gone. You lose Chin, and Chicago becomes very difficult.

I’d argue losing AO/Chin/Kofi/Ayo/Miller all in one offseason is on par with Self leaving, except we got very little on the roster. If Curbelo leaves, this will be the worst Illini team of post 1970. Full rebuild - players, coaches etc.
Curbelo your fear
