Too much drama for me. All I will say is I hope Kofi comes back. And yes I will buy his gear, but not to encourage him to come back, but it will be awesome to go to SFC with a Kofi jersey or whatnot, and see the Illini kick some Iowa, IU, MSU, MU, who cares...a$$. Wish Kofi the best, and hope UI is the best in his view. With him regardless, and do not blame him for entering the portal at all. What was the downside...in the long run? He had to decide when he did. Go Kofi. Go Illini.

Yes, but the big difference here is this is being positioned as actual "reporting" (vs. message board/tweet innuendo) and it is coming from the other side.

Also, if you read the KSR article, it's really damning with faint praise when it comes to Kofi/UK's interest. That's not the type of thing you let out there if you're expecting a last-minute reversal.
I'm wondering if you are still convinced that ILL is not his ultimate destination? If so where do you think he's going?

I think you're reading his response wrong, he's just mentioning how KSR and whoever their sources are seem to be burning a bridge with Kofi, giving us more reason he will likely choose ILL.

Exactly. Now that they know he is coming back and it's not Kentucky, they want to ruin the moment. It's okay though they "didn't want even want him" :ROFLMAO:
And as proud as Kofi has proven to be, I can’t imagine UK’s media approach is sitting well with him at all! I’m still not comfortable until the official statement comes out on Friday but I’m cautiously optimistic!

Coach Cal nixed it?

Although, it does make me wonder if those, "Underwood will drag both OA and Cal in front of the NCAA" rumors had some weight to them.

Edit: y'all, it got so much better when I read the replies. *chef's kiss*

Big Tim says Kofi to Illinois because "Coach Cal nixed the deal"

Did Coach Cal do this because Kofi is not good enough for Kentucky, or because he decided it was ethically wrong to poach in this fashion?

Or, more likely, did Coach Cal nix the deal because Kofi said he was staying with the Orange and Blue?

Haven't we seen this movie before. We are led to believe circumstances change 180 degrees in our favor, then Friday am. KY swoops in with a trillion $$ . Hope I am wrong, better keep cups on.
