If we didn’t have Kofi, you would have an argument. King Alpha is about to earn his nickname. I don’t think anyone else’s rebounding numbers are going to look great.

Everything is on hold until I can wrap my head around the 7' 300# Kofi being the fastest guy on the team 3/4 down the court.

I think Kofi added some tools to his toolbox offseason...watch out!

Hopefully Curbelo is around 4+ a game, when he does offense is quick to go.

Interesting stat is Ayo averaged 5.7 rebounds in 35.2 mins in conference play.
Belo averaged 4.1 in 21.3 mins. Belo is actually higher per minute played then Ayo.
Jacob averaged 3.8 in 16.5 minutes which is also higher than Ayo’s per minute.

points, rebounds and other stats are going to depend on the minutes and those will depend on defense. Would predict rotation but minutes played are a mystery to me at this point.

Well in fairness to rest of team, Kofi is really only fastest guy for first four or five strides. Just so happens he can travel 3/4 length of court in that number of strides.

Anyone know how the guys are doing on NIL? I think this season is really important to recruiting down the road. If players aren't getting the love at Illinois, you'd think that would hurt the program's chances on recruits down the road....

The Illini fan base is one of the most rabid in the country. Outside of the top blue bloods (who beat us out for many recruits, regardless...) I would wager that very few programs/fan bases will make their kids as much money as Illinois does

Well, the players and recruits will believe when they see it.

I still think the difference makers will be the big donors. Kofi would need to sell a ton of jerseys to make up for a single big business endorser. Really hope some things start happening.

Hoping we get to see the Jacksonville Jaguars brought to you by Kofi Cockburn, we too can be kings!

I knew the whole he’s taller and longer strides argument was coming, smh.
