Nutt, need some more news, getting parched here...
This is a SLOW day.People are upset over this coaching search and have turned their back on IllinioisLoyalty for a while. The sting of losing all three AC's will take a while to get over. The transfer portal has dried up and fans get tired of recruits saying they LOVED the visit but go someplace else.. Kids play games with coaches/fans and read the forums to see the fans go nuts because they said it was a good visit.

I hope we lose our coaches every year. It means we are winning
Well, it means we are not an elite destination yet. And, although I figure you said that in just, in the long run losing coaches every year would lead to recruiting losses because it takes a few years to establish relationships with kids/parents/AAUs, etc....

It is crazy to me how the media now-a-days just puts words out there that have never come out of my mouth just to have something to say or write an article on. I WAS NEVER GOING NOR THINKING ON TRANSFERRING TO KENTUCKY. Is it clear enough for you guys?

Out of everything that's been frustrating about this off-season, I think being made aware of this "Big Tim" fellow might be the thing I've hated the most. Can this dude crawl back into the creepy-!!! basement he dwells in?

The worst part is he will definitely still stand by what he said even when proven wrong. Dude loves to die on whatever hill he’s standing on. Will never admit he’s wrong about anything. I think he will block me on Twitter sooner than later, lol.

My favorite part of that Twitter thread is the number of UK fans basically saying they all know Tiny Tim is a fool and makes stuff up.

My concern is that players will go from high school to the G League or any other professional league, peak athletically and then be out the door by 21 with out any marketable skills or a degree to help them make a living. I know it isn't my place to worry about someone else's life choices, but it does bother me to see young people taken advantage of.

This isn't just a one-sided decision. Either the G League or one of these other professional leagues has to think that these kids have a pretty shot to make it or else they wouldn't be paying them to play. And how many of the kids looking to take advantage of this option are planning on going to school for four years anyway. If anyone is taking advantage of young people under the current model it's the NCAA.

Why is it that guys like Tim never have to answer for the problems they cause?
