People forget/don't realize how big VCU is. It has 30k+ students, pretty sure it's the biggest school in Virginia, hell it's like twice the size of UVA, they have money. Internet chatter says they may be going to the A10 w/ Butler (which'd be pretty awesome).

He's a hot commodity. He doesn't have to settle for a 3rd tier program when he could snag something better. He could have turned them around, but here's to him finding something better.

He may not be a hot commodity a year from now. He already failed to do what he did last year. What happens if he doesn't make the tournament next year. And furthermore holding out for a dream job is fine but what happens if those schools don't want him. He could look really Smart or look like a total fool in a couple of years. We'll see how it goes and Illinois isn't a 3rd tier job you don't know what you are talking about.

Same could have been said about Mark Few at Gonzaga. Look how it turned out for him. Not saying Shaka is the same, but both did it with mostly low tier high school prospects. Gonzaga is consistently in the tourney and have been doing well.

3rd is generous. Lets look at championships and champ game appearances in the past 20 years and try to tell me you're better than 3-4th tier.

You guys are so delusional.

Just message board stuff, I don't know if there's anything real behind it. But Butler's legitimately looking into the A10 to replace Temple, that's a definite fact.

Good luck. I'm not knocking Illinois but there's not a chance in hell Stevens takes that job. Indiana, Carolina, and Duke are the only ones I'd say have high odds of getting him should they offer. Then he'd listen to schools like UCLA, Kansas, Kentucky, the rest of the blue bloods.

Anyone else, not a chance.

Honestly, I agree with Duece. At this point, Illinios fits right into the third tier after thier recent history over the past 5 or so years.

Default Re: Illinois basketball fans

If you want to go back 20-25 years, explain to me why you're better than the following. This is just off the top off my head. Your claim to fame is ONE finals appearance and one final four in the past 23 years:

Kentucky
Syracuse
Kansas
Duke
UCLA
Florida
North Carolina
Michigan State
Michigan
Butler
Connecticut
Purdue
Villanova
Indiana
Maryland
Arizona
Arkansas
Ohio State

Honorable mention Cincinnati, UNLV, VCU, Louisville, Georgetown, probably more.

Show me the tiers where you're above 3rd.
