One of the best possible Illini teams of all time was derailed by the slush fund scandal .Why would anyone think a national title would be worth that. Is it okay to cheat if you win?
It’s only cheating when you get caught. When you get caught you deal with the punishment. Depending on the nature of the offense depends on the public opinion of how bad the cheating was

Self situation is different. He cheated and there were supposedly text messages showing he knew what adidas rep was doing. The rep went to jail. Self got nothing.

The problem is the NCAA because Self should have been punished.

And while we are talking NCAA failures for punishment Pitino shouldn’t be allowed to coach at the college level

I agree with everything you say except it is cheating whether you get caught or not.

Not to mention all of those bogus classes at North Carolina.....that the NCAA said was an internal issue with NC and basically let the Tar Heels administration handle the uh...uh....cough..cough....punishment

I think you would be surprised. If u don’t think KU fans won’t travel. Normally when an exhibition game is played it is against a nobody. This is different and for a good cause. I could sea local businesses buying tickets and giving them away
I guarantee this is a sellout! Bill Self, Hunter Dickinson, Preseason #1 Kansas, the Beloved, raising money for a good cause when people are starting to get the itch for CBB. It'll be a sellout

For the insiders should we expect a lot of recruits at this game sort of like a midnight madness. It seems like the table is set.

Assembly hall should be packed for a game that doesn’t matter should get some media coverage. Nothing else going on. Seems like an easy sell if it is allowed by the NCAA

I have had a couple of friends already ask me about tickets since they know I have season tickets. I think a lot of people want to see Self's return to the Assembly Hall and Hunter one last time.
I would be happier never seeing, reading, or hearing his name again.

Since its an exhibition game can Kofi play? JMO - Hunter is making more $ from Kansas than Kofi gets from his Japanese team.

I hope I’m wrong - that would be a great environment…particularly when a few weeks later we have some big games out of the chute

I wonder how the 2 coaches will handle and approach this game, since it's an exhibition charity type game and will not count?? Will it be like a glorified practice? Hey, Bill...I'd like for you to full court press some to see how our guards handle the pressure....and maybe a little half court trap on a few possessions.....no problem Brad....and Brad could you zone us a few possessions so we can work on our ball movement and zone offense with Hunter in the middle now...and maybe fast break some so we can see how we're geting back on the defensive end after a missed shot? Sure Bill...and lets make sure no one gets hurt in this one. Or will it be balls to the wall ...all out effort as if it were mid season type of play???

Kansas and Illinois are both matching up against highly rated squads just 2 weeks after the exhibition (Kentucky and Marquette), so I expect both teams to handle it very much like a regular game for best prep possible.

Man Kofi messed up and the guys around him were stupid.

He should have stuck around collecting NIL for his senior year and his bonus covid year. Dude would be an absolute Illinois legend or he could have transferred to any school in the country if they offered more NIL.

Can you imagine how dominant a team you could have built around him if they actually surrounded him with shooters?
