This hype is for a reason too. Underwood is a coach coming from the Oklahoma State Cowboys where he won 20 games and took that program to the NCAA tournament. Before his one-year stint with the Cowboys, Underwood spent three seasons with Stephen F. Austin where he went dancing every season as well.
Anyone who says the hype surrounding Underwood is not warranted isn’t a true Illini fan or is a troll on social media trying to get a rise. This head coach has a resume that shows he is a proven winner, and now he has taken over a sleeping giant of a program.
