How good is Illinois job? Location is a plus near so many major cities. In weaker Big Ten division. Facilities updated recently. Like North Carolina, Illinois always has had potential to be much more than it has been. Right coach could get Illini on track, but history of inconsistency and dysfunction concerning.

I spoke to a few recruits who said they thought this might happen, which has already scared off a few recruits. This news only makes it harder for the remaining coaches to hold the class together and add more pieces.

One could argue that Illinois would have been in better hands with Bill Cubit all along. But this is still stunning news.
