I just hope any one of the receivers scores a touchdown in the first half. Maybe even the first quarter.

Illinois has started more true freshmen through 4 games this year than Iowa has since 2008...let that sink in.

Vederian Lowe warming up with first team OL. That would be THREE true freshmen and a RS-FR starting on the OL

#Illini OL Christian DiLauro didn’t practice much this week, but he’s dressed. Looks like he’ll give it a go.

If he can’t, #illini may go with four freshmen on OL: Boyd, Palczewski, Kramer and Lowe

#illini DT Tito Odenigbo is no longer suspended and is available to play today.

REALLY LAME trying to use Enter Sandman as part of their entrance - Va Tech signature entrance and not even CLOSE to comparing with the entrance at Lane Stadium.

JGjr has the game of his life, receivers turn a ton of short, quick passes into long gains and a few TD's, RB's grind out a couple more TD's. UPSET!! :

Now where is that whisky?!?!

Our QBs need to get a mental clock running and throw it away

Awful call. Replay is pretty much making games unwatchable

why do they even have these tv review guys at the studio? they usually side with the refs and whatever call is made.

That's the worst replay call I've ever seen.
