Jon Rothstein thinks Illini can be a top-10 team and a Final Four contender if Ayo and Kofi come back:



TAS, how much would any potential "preseason" seeding of Illinois change if they both come back?

There is no question that Brad Underwood, Orlando Antigua and Chin Coleman would get good players.

Preseason bracketology is for ***.

I'll put 'em on the 2 line as clickbait ;)
That's enough, Reggie Miller.

That's enough, Chris Webber.

Lol. But in all seriousness, hypothetically speaking, where would you seed them if they both come back? How much does the seeding change if say one or the other doesn't come back? Or neither come back?

Good for Illinois and good for the players realizing they needed another year. Ayo was not even sniffing the draft board.

This team will be compared to the 1989 and 2005 teams. Let’s hope that they have a season to play.

Not trolling. Illini fans should enjoy the victories and also understand how the talent got to campus. I don’t blame anyone. Want to be better - play the game.

Quit trolling.

You mean I can’t just claim someone’s trolling?
It doesn’t work like that?

Haha!!

No doubt I am trolling to an extent. And Im not even judging Illinois. Do I think they knew what they were getting when hiring Underwood, Antigua and Coleman? Yes. And it was probably worth that “risk”. And it appears the reward is coming this season.

At this point, everyone school should pay players. No one is even investigating Duke and Zion getting serious $$$$$ to go to Duke.
