Misery is REELING........Made my day !!!!

It pains me to say this, but they need to at least make sure that remains a Q1 win for our sake, though. If there is a way for them to stay a Q1 win and still not make the tournament, though, that would be wonderful.

Yeah, it would be great to change that to a W.

As a guy who grew up an Illini fan in the Metro East, about the only thing that could wipe the stink of another Mizzou loss from my nostrils this season is a Final Four (or better).

Believe he got kicked out of Wichita State to after his fallout with Huggy.
Correct, assault charges from his girlfriend before he played a game for the Shockers - then to a community college (where he led the nation in scoring), and then Lincoln.
The odds were never in favor of him having a long stay here. Hopefully, someday, he gets his head straight. I feel bad for him but he's running out of opportunities.

Coming up on the next episode of Intervention, Jereme Richmond shares his experiences with Teddy Allen

BU:1 Trash cans:0
Chicago

I don't understand this take. Say even if we "promised the world", the staff has most definitely delivered. A.M is a starter on a top 5 team and has been given room to stumble. Not sure what more you can give freshmen.
Best guess? Miller wasn't anticipating Ayo would return. Just a guess though (about a tweet that also seems to be based purely upon outside observation).

Yea, fair guess. I think A.M knows he benefited from Ayo's return. He's had the chance to be a starter, learn from a vet while not having the pressure of being the "face" of the program.

He's also acknowledged it in interviews. Excited about the flashes we've seen from him

By and large, Miller has benefitted from Ayo's return. I'm sure he fancied himself as a 1AD, but he wasn't ready to be the guy. Very, very few are. Hopefully, he'll be ready next season. Has to work on explosion and going to the hole.

Id be ok if hutch’s return for the tournament is what bu was giddy about
Don’t see him playing in tournament when he hasn’t been practicing. Just be very happy to see him next year. Think they could play small ball next year with players like Grandy, Hutch, Hawk, Goode, and Ramses to play with Ace, Belo, and Giorgi. Would still like to see Kofi back but have no idea if that is a possibility.

Yeah, I'm giddy about the idea of him playing the 3 spot next year and getting a full off-season in. There's no way I could see parachuting him in now.
Those freaking hops tho....👀

If Hutch can play (next season), it's game over.

Ok, maybe that's a bit overboard. But a player of his caliber makes our team soooo much better.
