This is a reasonable take, its not too long ago that Alex Legion and Mark Smith were the second comings of Reggie Miller and Jason Kidd based on practice reports.
Can you count how many players that were told that they belong in the league bit disnt make it? Some barely were college stars.

I don't know about that, but Hutch is definitely going to the NBA. ;)

With Hutch playing all the positions, I sure hope Curbelo is able to get a spot on another team. 🤷‍♂️

Blech. Jordan Bohannon is back at Iowa for his 15th year.
It was so unbearable playing under the duress of the NCAAs rules in year 4
It was even more intolerable as they used his likeness in year 5 that he demanded an audience with the NCAA Commisioner
The conditions are just soooooo crushingly bad ........






that he signed up and committed to take the abuse for year 6.

Hard to argue now that his "brand" is so much bigger and far superceded that of the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Give him a break. He already has a sweet deal lined up to sell his likeness to a poison control vomit inducing medicine company. Let him get paid.

Damonte and Trent are coming back, great, but I'm going to be that guy and discuss the possibility that all these veteran players are going to take away valuable development from Podz, Goode, and Melendez. I'm pretty sure all 3 expect to play right away in some capacity, so I have a bad feeling about transfers happening. Or, I'm just being "that guy" too much in this post and all 3 will get valuable development physically off the court and be ready to step in in 22-23.
It’s a concern, but have to put your faith in BU and company. Playing time isn’t a guarantee that player won’t transfer. Heck starting as a freshman isn’t a.guarantee. We’ll see transfers in the coming years unfortunately. But we survived Griff and Tev moving, we’ll survive if Miller goes, and we’ll survive the next that transfer. Develop the culture, develop the players and win — everything will work out.

It seems the roster is now finally starting to take shape. Trent and DaMonte put us at 15 scholarship players. Assuming Kofi returns and Adam departs, our rotation might look something like this:


ILLINOIS BASKETBALL: 2021-22
POSITION1st String2nd String3rd String

I see a few people assuming Kofi returns. Are there signs , signaling this is the probability?

A Possibility.

Most likely depends upon whether he wants to take European money this year vs. further developing in college in 21-22 and making a run at the 1st or 2nd round of the NBA draft in 2022, following his 3rd season in college (similar to what Ayo chose to do).
