What a 24 hours it has been for Illini football! Rod's tweets have me hoping for more today. Does anybody have ideas on who it might be?

These are very exciting players we're adding.

So were Ricky Smalling and Kendrick Green and Larry Boyd and Owen Carney and Carmoni Green and Lere Oladipo and Tony Adams and HoJo Watkins and Calvin Avery and Verdis Brown and Reuben Unije and Coran Taylor and Kievan Myers and Marquez Beason and Isaiah Williams and Shammond Cooper and Luke Ford and Ritchie Petitbon.

I'm optimistic about this coming season for that reason, and an overriding belief in our coaching staff and the development work that's been done with our not-so-young-anymore talent. Lovie has a real roster now, and a cakewalk of a schedule. Saving his job is right there in front of us.

Each of the 3 announcements has represented an increase in 247 rankings - if you believe in that sort of thing - could a Mookie announcement be coming?

Meanwhile, the contest between the self-described "kool aid drinkers" is to see who can claim the lowest number of victories that would keep them thrilled with the future of the Lovie era.

Whole textbooks could be written on what the humiliation and deprivation of the last decade have done to Illini fans. Truly it has twisted our brains. But we shall see the light once again, someday.

There's a lot of accuracy and relevance to what Gritty posts, but bringing this to the recruiting thread the day after landing 2 great commits, and on the verge of potentially a handful more, is a bit.... trollish.

Exactly

Just got off the phone with my guy @IlliniCPatt scheduling my trip to Littyville. All the fireworks he shooting off I’ve got to go see it. I might even bring some dogs with me.

For those confused like me, this is the head coach at Lutheran North High School:

A selection of their talent in the 2020 class:

Antonio Doyle, 4* OLB

They are always loaded with talent. Title mentioned that their coach, Reed, was looking for a similar gig as the one that CP got with Illinois.

Reed has been very supportive of this program even though we haven't landed any LN players.
