Northwestern is better in football and pretty soon better in basketball. This was an LOL outloud moment for sure.

I understand why Illini fans would be upset. They have every right to be. Still, those fans wishing harm on a high school kid for making a dumb decision? Go away.

Good Point. Proves OSU are vulnerable.

Apparently one of his teammates gave him the idea to do the fake.

What I cannot accept is the way he did it. 17 years old or not, anyone would know thats a classless move. John Groce is by all accounts a better person than he is a coach. He put a lot of time in recuiting Cliff. Cliff could have returned the respect by just making his choice and not pulling the fake out move. He dissapointed a large fan base from his home state by choosing Kansas, but he didn't have to rub salt in the wounds

I agree it really sucks for you guys, especially when your top 50 PG switched to Louisville at the last moment.

Panini is happy, 2 "caps" is now official "cap" material for cards. look for the "almost" Series of cap logo cards in a couple of years. That illinois cap is rare event used material now.

I don't see the problem. It just made it more dramatic. I'm sure he didn't intend to make people mad.. Either way, I'm happy to have him at KU!

I thought it was hilarious and definitely not the first time it's been done. On top of that, I'm sure all the coaching staffs involved knew ahead of time where he was going.

I thought it was funny and not a big deal - Why is it immature? If I was an Illinois fan I would think it was funny too ...

+, it has nothing to do w/ Lebron's decision - Alexander wasn't on Illinois ... it would be like Lebron doing it with a Knicks hat and then picking up the Heat hat - It's not disrespectful because Lebron was never on the Knicks !

Over last 5 years, NU has been the talk about program in Illinois, They may have not made it but aside from few years they were way closer and on the cusp of making it.

Obviously I'm biased because I'm an Illini Alum, but do you seriously think NW basketball gets more talk and press than Illini? Maybe in Evanston. The fact that an NW hat wasn't even up on the table should be the first indicator that is not true. Groce is turning the program around one step at a time. A few years ago, we wouldn't have been at the table. I think NW needs to make the tourney for the first time before trying to snatch the Illinois basketball crown. I'll give you football though. Our team sucks.

I think NU back to trying to beat you there and not in a good way.

wow.. rude move.
if some top ranked kid grabbed a UNC hat and then put it down for a dook hat... I would be extremely mad and hope nothing but bad things for his career... (it would only be a college b-ball career as we ALL know most duke players do absolutely NOTHING in the NBA.)
