Coaches dont make bad passes, or fumble the balll, I believe Bexkman didnt coach very well but some of te blame needs to go to the guys on the field

Who didnt see the safety comming at the end of the game . st has improved throughout the season, but whats with giving everyone on the team a chance to return the kick. Same subject, after the ASU game I actually thought that not having a return man back would improve our field position and limit our tos. Looking forward to see how they plan to right this ship. Go Illini football .

There are rumblings that USC may send Lane Kiffin packing... I would take him off their hands.

Sounds good in theory, but then you realize this guy could not win with 4-5 star recruits and he will not have all of Southern Cal to pick and choose his players from, not a good coach to top it off IMHO.

He's had 12 games and not only hasn't he shown improvement...the team has actually gotten significantly worse.

Beckman's first year a colossal failure

I'm not trying to beat the guy up, but the evaluation should be pretty harsh when the offense, defense and special teams have all underperformed, when the football incompetence has turned off many fans and public relations snafus have turned off many of the rest.

Lane Kiffin? You've got to be joking! You want to have a BIGGER embarassment as head coach? I cannot believe I just read that someone wants Lane Kiffin as their head coach. If this isnt a joke you really should do a little research on Mr. Kiffin.

Glad my daughter went to OSU for grad school. At least it gave me a second but real team to also cheer for. Now that is a program! Undefeated, new coach and a bunch of seniors with nothing to play for but pride.

Lane kiffen is a joke, see his current and last job as reasons not to even mention his name. Wow... if the illini fire and hire, it won't be a big name unless they throw an absurd amount of money at them. Remember this didn't work last year with Sumlin...

Psst... They are on probation--they cheated. Prior to this probation era, it was the Clarett era...they cheated again.
Glad my son went to Illinois' Engineering grad school, in spite of FB program.
