Is Kendrick Nunn out as a Fighting Illini?

Although he averaged 15.5 points a game and five rebounds last season for the Illini, it is more than likely Nunn is through at Illinois. Nunn pled guilty to one count of misdemeanor battery as a part of a plea agreement. Nunn has been sentenced to 18 months of court supervision, and 100 hours of community service. He will have to enroll in an abuse intervention program, write a letter to the victim, and pay a $200 fine. Illini Athletic Director Josh Whitman has gone on record saying, “If the allegations prove to be true, there is no place in our athletic program for domestic violence. It is an intolerable offense.” There is no change in Nunn’s status until Josh Whitman and John Gorce have had a chance to review and discuss the situation. Does Nunn deserve a second chance? IF Whitman stands by his statement, Nunn would not get that second chance. WE REPORT—YOU DECIDE!
