Meh. I wouldn't say that...I'd still take Derrick Rose under most (not all...we aren't win-at-all-costs-no-matter-how-shady Memphis) circumstances. But like I said, even though I can't say I'd operate the same way if I was a college coach (then again, I don't have a moral compass and I'm definitely going to hell, if there is one), I can't blame our coaching staff for not playing that game. It's a slippery slope. As long as we can get the occasional superstar like Eric Gordon every few years, along with consistently getting very solid (if not spectacular) 3-4 year guys like Pruitt, Semrau, Carlwell, McCamey, etc, Illinois basketball is always going to be in the national picture.
