One of your best posts ever. Well done. Your lengthy introduction is so spot on. Brings back long ago memories to me of growing up as a kid in central Illinois who loved basketball. The IHSA tournament was just so special. Legendary high school coaches and historically good programs. Quinn Buckner and Thornridge? Many reading this probably have no idea what I’m referencing.
Kudos Trent. You’ve never wavered.
Kudos Robert. Your emotions waver, but your loyalty doesn’t.
