Hey, I hear ya. I wanted to take Brigitte Bardot to the school dance but she claimed to be busy that night. I ended up with Erlene Mahure. We could do a lot worse than Keady (and have frequently). We've never had a coach stay 25 years, like he did at Purdue, and I doubt that we ever will. Lou and Harry were the closest at 21 and 20 years respectively. Harry had a better winning percentage but a couple hundred fewer wins and was, unfortunately canned for cheating. Lou had about the same winning percentage but nearly a hundred fewer wins and, some would argue, was pushed out the door. Weber's winning percentage was equal to that of Combes but we sent him packing. Self, Kruger and Bartow might have had some potential, but they skipped town at their first opportunity. I'm not sure that we have, or could, do better than Keady. Are Knight and Izzo the only two coaches to win more B10 games than Keady? I'd love to do better than Keady, too. Just not sure that we can.Keady:
25 years at Purdue
18 NCAA berths
19-18 record in the tournament
5 Sweet Sixteen
2 Elite Eight
0 Final Fours
That isn't what I want for Illinois.

It's incredibly sad but I think the answer is fairly obvious.“Everybody knows him as a basketball player and he was a great athlete and student, but Caleb was a great person.”www.yahoo.com
Sad story. Not sure why this seems to be happening more for basketball players.
pssst Jeremiah, it's August.
I left my body lying somewhere in the sands of time
Lol... If I didn't know he's a top end prospect, that's gotta be the most unintentionally desperate sounding tweet I've heard. "Sup everyone, just wanted to let you all know that even though prom is 5 months away, I am fully committed to going, and I am 100% available right now. I know none of you have come up to me yet, so I just wanted to assure you all that I'm not tied down at all, just completely single. So anybody who wants to go to prom, just know I'm very free. So yeah, hit me up."pssst Jeremiah, it's August.
You don't need to tell us you're committing in 5 months.
