Brandon Paul not surprised by Illinois' success

"I'm not surprised," Paul said on Friday morning. "I knew if we worked hard we were going to get some recognition at some point. For it to come this early, I'm not really that surprised. We go into every game fully expecting to win. We didn't pay attention to the rankings. When it came, it was pretty cool.."

"We haven't done much," Paul said. "It's only 11 games into the season. We have a lot more to prove. We don't want to win our first 11 games and be satisfied."
