I don't know him personally, but my feeling is that Pru needs neither affirmation or condemnation. My guess is he doesn't give a s--t one way or the other.

So... Months ago, took the fam to the Nebraska game, first row seats behind the bench, and more than a handful of Illini fans are there.
Last night, shooting hoops at the gym and a guy sees my kiddos Illini gym bag and compliments him on it.
Turns out after talking to him about the game (4 months ago now!) for a bit that he and his son were literally sitting next to us, they also got Belo's autograph and the weirdest part, he lives a quarter mile away from me (about an hour from Pinnacle Bank Arena). The odds of that happening even in a state as small as Nebraska have to be pretty slim.
It's an Illini world, we're just living in it.
And clearly we both deserve dads of the year for raising future recruits for Brad in the middle of Husker country.

To enjoy or not enjoy Mr. pruman91's posts is another path in life that only you can decide for yourself...........

Do I find his gifs and posts entertaining ???
Do I loathe his gifs and posts and wish he would stop and desist immediately ???
Do I not give a rat's a!! either way..........??

I've experienced some depths in my life that has given me pause , but this ISN'T one of those abyss' in life that can grab your gonads and twist them to and fro causing pain beyond description.......This is a sports and facebook site , at least to me........if you want stats non stop then this might not be the place for you ......

How about we all come together in a big group hug and make up instead of break up..........I want that more than anything .......I really really do .................

I'm tired of these Hawkins isn't on par with Nance posts. Nance was 26 and 29 percent from 3 his freshman and sophomore years. CoHawk was 23 and 29.
We are a developmental program and CoHawk is on progress to match or exceed Nance.
We were supposed to be a developmental program. I’m not convinced you can have one of those and win consistently anymore. Recruiting is fluid, even with the guys on your team.
I certainly hope Hawk has a year where he shoots like Pete Nance did last year, but sometimes development isn’t linear. 6’10” guys who can shoot 40% from 3 & 75% from the FT line just aren’t very common.
Love to have both.

Are you saying CoHawk will match or exceed Nance next year? Because that's what all the "isn't on a par" posts are about.

I'd love it if he exceeded Nance's numbers this year. But I don't think it's very realistic. I expect Nance to continue to improve. Nance isn't likely to make as a big a jump from last year as CoHawk is apt to make, but still expect improvement with more maturity.

Before we actually hug, let's focus on the "Kane" image. This guy killed his emperor with a spear, came to the Wild Wild West, survived and flourished on character and badassness, and even got chicks in the process. Now that's a Loyalty guy.

That is total speculation and is not the norm. Hawk was unguarded often due to Kofis. Hawks shots will likely get harder not easier if he does start making some. The fact is Nance did shoot 45 percent last year. So to say Hawk does or will is total speculation. and to say Dain or Hawk is in fact a second knock down perimeter shooter an mentioned in the original post is just not true. He may be one day in two years maybe but he is not yet. Hawk exceed 45perrcent from three is likely... really ? You are chugging Kool aid....We need a 4 or 5 like Nance or others that can hit the three because we lacked that last year on our roster and still do.
