If the two really hot kids coming in next year are as good as advertised, I don't think we'll really miss them. Maybe they saw the writing on the wall with Kobe and the other young guys.

Ben Pyle is the 2018 edition of Kansas' Mr. Basketball, a nice honor. Of course, his brother Drew garnered that same recognition a couple of years back and he is now playing at D2 Washburn in Kansas and not exactly lighting things up there. Ben an immediate impact player? Maybe on the offensive end of court. Not sure about the other end. I am still waiting on a successor to WIU's own Mr. Basketball (Joe Dykstra). Maybe Ben is the one. At least we can hope.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

Roster is updated, but no Delo or incoming freshman Shamar Dillard.

Delo is still listed in the student directory, but nothing for Dillard and he's not referencing anything on his twitter about WIU. Has some twitter pics from July 25th and the background could have been the streets of Macomb, but again not listed on website.

Maybe Delo hung it up or is looking to finish his last year somewhere else to get a chance to start.

If neither are coming back, hopefully they give a scholarship to Maas. Believe he's been a walk-on for the last three years grinding it out for the team in practice.
Think Purple...lets think Gold as in Championships!!!

Dillard - yeah, could be Macomb a few blocks east of campus, but then again, there's a lot of neighborhoods that look fairly similar to that in most towns

That's the major difference between coaches Mo and Billy. Mo would cut 'em loose in April and immediately update the roster, leaving no doubt in people's minds. Billy waits until August so you have to scratch your head and wonder if they were cut or left on their own.

Who knows when these guys decided they weren’t going to
be part of the team but who ever updates the website doesn’t do it nearly as much as they used to as a whole do not sure that’s on Billy

You might be right but my gut says a coach always wants to control what the public sees about his program at all times. I forgot the other difference. Billy has not had to use the Jeremy Felton maneuver on any his players. That was brutal. If a kid is not cutting it in the classroom, he does not get to sit on the bench with team but instead has his own student desk near the end of the bench. :lol:
