Illinois needs to match his salary. Antigua has been a great recruiter and assistant coach. Would be nice to keep him in Champaign.
Rumors are that Kentucky is trying to hire both Antigua and Coleman, which is some dirty shit.Illinois needs to match his salary. Antigua has been a great recruiter and assistant coach. Would be nice to keep him in Champaign.
I heard about Chin too. I really want to keep Antigua. Chin has been really good as well but for him it would be a nice career promotion. Antigua has already been at Kentucky and I think for him at this point, only the money would be important to him or getting a HC gig.Rumors are that Kentucky is trying to hire both Antigua and Coleman, which is some dirty shit.
Also read that Illinois offered to make Antigua the highest paid assistant in the country,
Should have hired Pitino to finish the job. Told ya.so Ayo, Trent, Damonte, Miller, Giorgi, and possibly Kofi are gone. Damn...the Illini are going to pretty much have an all new team next year. I really hope Kofi comes back but I think he's gone as well. If UW gets this team to top 3 in the B1G, I'd be impressed.
Illinois never played up to their talent? They were a #1 seed based on how they played.Should have hired Pitino to finish the job. Told ya.
Underwood offense is archaic, with pathetic shades of Bill self end around handoffs. He is a terrorist style Bob Knight coach, fat little white man that gets off screaming in the face of black studs. That era has passed yet Champagne idley watches it.
He only has himself to blame as they suck schematically on both ends and never play anywhere near their top 5 talent level.
I have never seen in 35 years watching March madness, a team with 2 seven footers (one of whom is 300 lbs) actually struggle to get defensive rebounds.
Chester is a proven recruiter. Very solid hire.Chester Frazier hired as assistant coach.
I am a fan of his from a motivation, toughness, and drive perspective. Given his background he's probably the kind of guy that is well respected among urban families as well.
That said I really hope the next guy is a proven recruiter.
I don't think he's ever been on a staff (not even as lead recruiter, but on a staff) that has signed a consensus top 75 player.Chester is a proven recruiter. Very solid hire.
