Illinois

Recommended Posts

He can coach offense.  And Illinois will have the athletes to be good on defense if they try.  League of great coaches got a touch better yet.  Miles needs to amp up his X and O game somehow.  Oklahoma St. had the most efficient offense in the nation according to some metrics.

None of the guys you could mention had won an NCAA tournament game before they moved on, though.

 

John Groce did...howd he do at Illinois?

 

I think Underwood is a good coach.  Point is....it's not a guarantee

True, but I'd take Groce's 96-75 record over 75-86.

 

Sure, and I'd rather have the winning powerball than have a coach go 96-75.   Of course, neither of our comments has anything to do with what was being discussed.

Underwood is taking the money.  Oklahoma State had him on the cheap last season.  Can he get Chicago kids to go down state?  If he can, the Illini will win.  Bill Self was on the verge of a championship there when KU opened.

Underwood will have the same challenge Weber and Groce had - convincing one-and-done kids who can go and do go to Duke, Kansas and Kentucky to go to Illinois. 

 

I don't put him in the Izzo/Beilein class of coach, though.
