    Welp. We won. Not surprised it was incredibly ugly after we jammed a knife up our peehole the last 3 games.

    It’d be nice if our players could stop traveling

    Seriously. We are probably undefeated if we don't travel as much.

    Frazier is the best freshman we’ve had since Dee, maybe since Frank Williams.

    It's hard to miss as many shots as he did and still look like our best player. He did though

    So...what's the basketball roster going to look like when the dust clears? Smith gone, heard rumors of Black which now seems could be true, and others? Would be so bad if basketball does a hard reset like football.

    I don't even know. I think a lot depends on Leron. If he leaves, I can't imagine a scenario in which we don't suck balls.

    At this point I expect all of the assistants to quit tomorrow, too.

    Is Smith leaving? I've haven't heard a decision has been made. Would be silly for him to transfer after one season. Leron Black is the key to next year for us. If he leaves thats going to hurt a ton.

    Oh I guess Schmidt tweeted that out last night that he guaranteed it. Smith was pretty shitty this year but would hate to lose a talent like his after one season. If they somehow landed Ramey that would obviously lessen the blow a lot. Really need to land a 5th year that doesn't suck. Jordan Caroline would make this a tourney team.

    I would guess Mark Smith is going to leave if his dad gets.his way.

    I think Kipper doesnt love the Underwood coaching style.

    I think Lucas sees multiple point guards ahead of him

    I think Matic hates the food.

    I think Finke is staying but he may think there are better opportunities. Dont know.

    I think Leron sees a chance to make some $$$.

    Jordan, Frazier, Eboigbodin and Williams all staying. Guessing Finke stays.

    Leron is the wildcard. They Will try and get him to stay for sure.

    Well I guess Smith is indeed out. I'm amazed how poorly that worked out. He was terrible this year. They better keep Black and Nichols

    Not sounding good on the Leron front and still likely Tejon leaves. Ramey seems like a pipe dream that is Missery bound. Hate to be like that but hard not to lately with our luck.

    Also, Smith had every opportunity to make it happen. Started 19 games as a true freshman but Frazier just out played him. Good luck to him, but he would've sat the bench for every team he was considering.

    Ramey's recruitment is so weird. His dad and Cuonzo supposedly know each other pretty well and it was thought that he basically told Cuonzo "Thanks, but don't waste your time." (Martin hadn't been recruiting him at all since he'd been here) Then his dad comes out in the press and says it's weird that Courtney doesn't have an offer from and wasn't being recruited by Mizzou, and he doesn't know why. Couple days later he gets a Mizzou offer and some people are saying we're the favorite.

    Feel like we have to get Caroline to fill that void which in my opinion would be a wash. Though Caroline seems to be more athletic than Black

    Halfway excited for football now. Lovie lands some of those kids from Trinity and he might actually turn this thing around.

    Things are sounding good for Jones on the basketball front too. Most optimistic people have been for both sports in a while

    The Illini added grad transfer QB A.J. Bush from VT and Jalen Greene from USC. Greene played QB/WR.

    I don’t know much about Bush, but Greene is a playmaker.

    And sounds like Lucas got his release too? This has turned into a rebuild like football, not complaining though.
