You really think they'll score more at Ohio State than they just did at Nebraska?

I'm still shell shocked.

tOSU:2
UI:0

That's the official score for a forfeit, right?

Still, this game is a huge opportunity for our team...

This is an honest question, so if anyone knows the answer I would appreciate it, what is the record for the biggest loss in school history?

This one could hit 40.

Illinois: 45
Ohio State: 83

I really think they will play loose now, nothing to lose. With that being said i still think they lose. But i think they will make a few shots, if they can get hot we can make it close. But either way we lose.

Yep, I think you're right. And they know they can beat these guys.

I'm going to be the crazy one to suggest the mother of all bouncebacks:

Illinois 67
Ohio State 64

They know they could have beaten these guys, and that was weeks ago before the whole thing started to unravel.

UI 55
tOSU 83

As optimistic as I was 6 weeks ago, this season was effectively over when UNL had a 31 point lead.

Can we ask not to be televised, and eat the revenue, or do we have to check with the B1G Commish?

Good news: offense loosens up.
Bad news: defense loosens up too.
Illinois 73
OSU 104

Good point. It would most helpful if no more of our games were televised for the rest of the season!

This one's easy:

OSU 87
Illini 61

Hope the freshman get a chance to play at least.

They'll be hungry for revenge after what happened in Champaign, and angry having lost to the Michigan schools. I can't envision a close game. If we play like we did today, we lose by 45. I don't expect that to happen, but I do expect that we'll get plastered, guaranteeing no better than 7-11 in the B1G. Most likely, our best conference finish is 6-12, assuming we can stagger past Iowa at home.

I think it'll be close, like so many of our games but we'll lose. Its the reoccurring nightmare....63-59. Sad. I'm still bleeding orange and blue though.
