BB took Appleton when we took Hawthorne. Appleton committed real crimes at Wisconsin, BB was not shy about saying he would never recruit a kid from ESL again given the problems he had with Appleton. Sunkett took that as a personal insult.
This is why when interviewed after the BB hire that Sunkett panned it, said it was a terrible hire.
...we have a loooooong way to go to repair the damage done at East Side. I don't think CP created that mess, and just being an STL guy doesn't mean CP has an automatic in at East Side.
I'm hoping CP can land Antonio Doyle as a transfer. Illinois is pursuing him.
