The dude really went out on a limb this time saying Bruce Weber can't recruit. Sounds exactly like an annoying Duke fan I know. Everytime Illinois wins, he responds with "Weber can't recruit." Such a genius response.

This is like looking at Doyel's third grade essays and saying he's a terrible writer. Actually, he is. In this article anyway. Check out this gem:

"Weber is only seven seasons into his head-coaching career, and only two years into his Illinois tenure, so it's too early to say for sure...

Because he's not recruiting well."

Apparently Doyel didn't take logic classes either. Just as I wouldn't judge Doyel's ability to write by his third grade essays, he shouldn't judge Weber's recruiting in just his second season.

All that said, it is important to note the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated. Yes, it does have a photo of Dee but more germain to this post is the fact that one of Weber's recruits at Southern--Darren Brooks--is listed on the cover as being able to challenge Dee. But Weber can't recruit, remember?

My logic is this: Illinois' success and publicity combined with Weber's obvious coaching genius will take care of their recruiting needs for a long time.
