    In fairness, that was a tough 3 game stretch for Illinois... They played pretty well in all 3 games, just didn't come away with any wins.

    Mark Smith kind of sucks, but they have some other legit players.

    Their fans, on the other hand, are still a collection of dimwits.

    Nah, jokes aside, Underwood is a good coach. Gonna be hard to overcome the donkishness of Illinois, though. They have to hope that there are some good dudes coming through Mac Irvin Fire in the next couple years that sleazy Chin Coleman can pick off.

    Not denying he is a good coach at all. I just think he's got some Bruce Pearl stink to him. I wouldn't buy a used car from him, that is for sure. And I feel like he is one cellphone recorded practice or half time outburst away from mandatory anger issue counseling. That is not even touching the expected recruiting violation he has yet to commit.

    Currently at the United Center watching New Mexico State wax Illinois. That is all.

    Illinois takes the L in Chicago to NMSU. I'm sure that'll help the Chitown connection.

    HOFMark Smith, the next Ray Allen or whatever, is transferring from Illinois after one lackluster year.

    Can't believe he didn't light it up after being such a great baseball player.

    Smith has a solid skill set and will be a good player for someone but Illinois' other freshman guard (Trent Frazier) was better. Frazier and Ayo will form an excellent back court next year.

    I think basically anyone is better than 33.7% shooting.

    Sounds like a good fit for Wake. Go get him Danny!

    He had a poor year but he's going to be a productive player for someone. I suspect he'll have plenty of good options.

    This whole thing was such a circus. Some of the Illini believed Mark Smith and Ayo talked during recruiting and were planning to make up the "best backcourt in the country."

    I'm not sure who you're talking to. I'm an Indiana fan. I watch a lot of B1G hoops and think he's got talent. I'd happily take him at IU.

    Sorry. Didn't mean to rain on that parade. Just offered my thoughts on the kid.

    Illini great Brandon Paul was waived by San Antonio today after averaging 2.3 ppg, 1.1 rpg, and 0.6 apg last year. That leaves Myers Leonard as the last remaining Illinois player in the NBA.
    We're going to be good again.
