    Butler was extremely late to an extremely late break out party for Smith. Odds were never good, here.

    He could still come to the game on Saturday. I'm not saying our odds are great, but I wouldn't count us out, either. This a pretty strong recruiting staff; I'm sure we're in contact with him. Let's see how this plays out. I wouldn't be shocked if he was at the game Saturday.

    Illinois is in state playoff mode. Most likely Edwardsville will be playing Saturday.

    I don't know how to edit on phone. Sorry. Edwardsville plays Friday at 7 pm. So he could come to Saturday game.

    Not to be a Negative Nellie (I believe that was the term used), but Lloyd Christmas is about the only one who thinks we have a chance with this guy, right?

    Well, from what I can glean, he hasn't made a visit to Butler, and we are out of home games. So, I am pretty sure it would be hard to get him. He's a senior and hasn't visited? Probably not interested.

    You're right Hink, the horse has left the barn, but he is a stud and would fit in so well.

    We evidently think there's enough potential to sink time into this and make it known to other recruits (see Phinisee's comments) that we're interested in smith.

    Seems odd, as I can't imagine it's that possible without a game visit, but maybe the fact that IU and Illinois are each on the brink of coaching changes is weighing heavily here.
