How about a halftime dancing chief performance for every new verbal commit. Show them our history and pride

He flipped me the bird at a house party in Madison cuz my drunk self walked straight up to him and yelled I-L-L and punted at my Illini shirt. Good times.
Kaminsky's always been an idiot. One of my college buddies went to Middle school or high school with him and he literally got in trouble for climbing on the school roof and taking a sh*t on it in front of people. True story.

Edit: Also Kaminsky can hate on Illinois all he wants, but pretty sure every offseason he'd be down in Champaign partying at Red Lion.

Yep. It has been updated. Funny, earlier it said 27 on the initial landing page but when you went to this page with the commits it said 47, so I didn’t know what the 27 was all about. They must have seen the disconnect and fixed it.

So Podzilla was Mr Basketball right? Wasn't Goode Mr Basketball for Indiana?

Holy moly, we finally won a Tipton announcement. I can't even use my gif now.

Instead, here:

That's mesmerizing. I'd really be impressed, however, if you updated the GIF so each succeeding Chief rotates opposite to the preceding one. ;) The ceiling of my talent is simply to be able to identify that it's a GIF.

I was just about to post the same. Looks like they bumped us up.

According to 247 our recruiting rankings with Underwood:

2017: 30 (Mark Smith, Trent Frazier both 4 stars,
2018: 25 (Ayo, Tevian Jones both 4 stars)
2019: 69 (Kofi 4 stars)
2020: 16 (Miller, Curbelo both 4 stars)
2021: 27 (Good and Melendez 4 stars, Podz 3 stars! WTF?)

I do question 247's value. I was surprised to see how many years 247 considered Bruce Weber's recruiting to be top 25, which differs from my recollection. Perhaps the difference is Underwood seems to do a great job of landing 4 star recruits who play above their rankings and are impactful (Ayo, Kofi, Curbelo, Miller).
