Is there anyone on this forum who, if they were not an Illini fan, not take a job at Kentucky over Illinois if the pay was somewhat equal?
I would never take a job with Calipari, even if he was the coach at Illinois. Never have liked him wherever he has been.

This just occurred to me.....hopefully not misremembering but, didn't we lose Asst Tracy Webster and a wing named Darius Miller to Kentucky approximately 15 years back? So aren't they used to taking our lunch money?

I'll take "I only work for Hall of Fame HCs" Powell and either:
1 Robinson
2 "own the midwest" recruiter Ostrom.

1. There is no reason to ever read anything Rees Woodcock writes "closely."
2. "With the Bulldogs, Powell has helped form the team into a national title contender..." The idea that Gonzaga were not already title contenders until Powell arrived is laughable.
3. I obviously read the Powell one closely as you suggested and instantly regretted it. See point #1 above.

Phillips Exeter is one of the very top academic schools in the country. It is not a school to "rehabilitate GPA's" or focus on basketball. Maybe that's why he started his college ball at Holy Cross instead of a Power 5 school.
Correct, I am quite familiar with Exeter. (The "rehabilitate GPA" quote came from another post btw.) I seem to remember something like he didn't play at his original school in California. So I latched on the "late bloomer" description in the original post.

While he was here, we signed 5 McD AA's, 4 actually played. There were a couple more top 50 guys.
Jimmy Collins was a stud......depending on ranking sites at the time, he would have signed 2 #1 players in the country over a 3 class period if Ben Wilson wasn’t killed.

1985 - Ben Wilson - Simeon

1987 - Marcus Liberty - King

Should have won one anyways......but would have rolled to NC with Ben Wilson in Champaign.
