Well, at the very least I hope this is a wake up call to always be ready, always be hungry. I hope we are also going a bit on the offensive here too. I would love to keep the staff intact if possible, but hopefully we are also having conversations of our own too. Given that things are clearly up in the air, all avenues need to be pursued. I hope we have a backup plan locked and loaded by the time the dust settles.
If there is no backup plan then the coach isn't doing his job.

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.
This is always funny to me. This is assuming you don't hire anyone new. If you hire someone from Chicago, that's covered. Then you hire someone with connections elsewhere. Not that complicated.

Yes, they could be massive losses, but it's easy to look at it as a blank slate if a quality replacement hasn't been brought in.

Correction, there’s some confusion. I believe there’s 1 million on the table right now not 1.2 million but no counter from Kentucky yet. Still an aggressive offer.
There is reporting that Illinois has counteroffered more than $1m a year for four years. Haven't seen an exact statement of how much over $1m per.

The 4 years is what makes it incredible. Most AC contracts are 2-3

It’s time for a little break. Turn on a game from last year, cry a little, cheer out loud and make sure to pour a stiff drink. Cheers.

When you’re ready LeVar will handle the rest.

Really proud of Josh Whitman and to be an Illinois fan today. We could have just given up because of Kentucky, but we didn't. Either way, we will get top notch assistants. We are on the road back to the top and this shows the commitment from Josh and the program. Should know soon, but think we have a chance!
