Re: College Basketball 2017-2018

5 Simeon recruits in the last 20 years. 0 in the top 50. However will we survive. I don’t like how this played out, it sucks, but let’s not pretend like Simeon was sending us the Rose and Parker’s of the world. And I would think we’d get credit for not only taking, but allowing Jaylon Tate four yea...

Re: Highland Park scraps tackle football

Wait so it's q.e.d. that high school football should be abolished? Ok guys I must have cte. You have a forum here full of this weird groupthink. I'm not sure if you are stupid or insecure in that you take an extreme opinion like football should be outlawed, Star Wars is important for adult males or...

Wow Thad Matta "stepping down" as HC at OSU. Not surprised its happening, but surprised at the timing even though he's had some recent embarrassments trying to fill scholarships this offseason. He has lost a lot of players recently, so not super surprised by the timing, though it totally ...

Gotta think you are so excited for the future though regardless of how this series ends. Good core and the top pick and payroll flexibility. Nice world you live in.

Re: College Basketball 2017-2018

John Groce is 3/9 making the tourney. Cuonzo Martin is 2/9. Tilmon is a talent, but thus far, he hasn't produced a ton of results. he's not a guy who will outmuscle others for boards or play like a beast down low. he's got a nice touch around the basket with a variety of post moves. but he's much c...

Re: Aaron Hernandez committed suicide

What a disgusting travesty this whole thing is. So much money wasted. So many lives ruined. So if I get this right, didn't he just pay to be cleared of charges and then kill himself right after? Why waste that money if this was the end game? Does he not want his daughter to grow up with money?

Re: College Basketball 2017-2018

Underwood told Pickett that his scholarship would be honored and that was about it. He wasn't feeling the love. Rumor has it he was told he'd redshirt and maybe play by year 3. He was told he come come, but he wouldn't play. yeah, i heard that too.. Looks like Bragg is back in play. Not sure what t...

Re: College Basketball 2017-2018

I liked Pickett because he seemed to love Illinois, and that central IL, east St. Louis area is blowing up right now, and he seemed like someone that'd champion Illinois to other recruits. But that horsefeathers never works in practice and hasn't ever done jack horsefeathers for us in the past, so ...

Re: College Basketball 2017-2018

Thought the Illini would keep their class intact like 3 days ago and now it looks decimated. Pickett is a top 250 kid, that one doesn't really hurt. Need to keep Frazier though. I'd probably offer Verge now and wait a year for him to qualify. i wouldn't worry about Pickett, he didn't fit Underwood'...

Re: College Basketball 2017-2018

I know we have two ace recruiters and Underwood is a good coach. Ultimately we'll be fine. But it's never fun to see recruits defect, so for now I'm feeling negative. Yeah, I hate losing Tilmon. I really don't care about Pickett though, maybe he ends up a lot better than I think, but you don't hire...

well, we also don't really need point guards, unless the pg is mark smith, but that's not happening. I disagree, always can use point guards that can play. Agreed.
