Re: ** SIGNED ** 2018 - Rey Idowu, 6-9/230, PF, Melbourne, FL

Rey has "favorited" my Twitter posts that have players and Coach Muller signing for my daughter on her mini-basketball post-game both times I have posted them. He is definitely paying attention to what is being posted about the program. Love seeing a young guy locked in like that already. I noticed...

He won't be missed on the floor but it is interesting how we cannot keep players eligible. We really really struggle with that. It definitely seems more than average
Who was the last person we couldn't keep eligible? Copeland's issues were from his previous school.

Re: Milik suspended for QU game

I'm not sure if handling appropriately means waiting until a D2 game to suspend him I'm not sure you know what, why or where this violation of team rules happened. I'm also pretty sure your reputation isn't on the line for this decision. If you have more information about what horrible thing he did...

Re: Milik suspended for QU game

This is nothing new. Really good transfers fall into our laps for a reason. It's a necessary mid major budget evil. Dan is handling appropriately I presume.

Re: Chris Payton Verbals

I think it's less about getting players that are going to stay their full 4 years, and more about recruiting Illinois specifically. I could be wrong but I think Illinois (mainly Chicago) is one of the best states for producing D1 basketball talent. That's why to me, recruiting locally is more impor...

Re: Chris Payton Verbals

I do believe it is important to get players from Illinois and locally. IMO, they are much more likely to stay and develop and not get homesick or leave for other reasons. Family and friends are still very important at age 18-22 as it always is. I don't have stats to back this up, but I feel our tra...

Re: Court Side

Yes, very interesting twist to the original question. The best way to find out what it takes to get a court side seat - 309-438-8000 and ask. As far as the Athletic Administration - we have been stuck in neutral now for four years or so. I see the current staff as all good people, who try hard, and...
