    Illinois-Ohio State Game Cancelled

    I think of we keep our knees up and don’t sneak around out there we have a good chance to win.

    I suspect there will be a short trigger on Peters today. This is a game you can only win by out scoring them.

    Illinois 23, Rutgers 20 Postgame

    Harrumph! Hope you didn’t spill your brandy. Lol. Big picture there are a lot of questions about this team and program including the future of Lovie Smith. My narrow point is in evaluating IW he showed a lot of savvy and good decision making in his first start. He has speed and...

    Illinois 23, Rutgers 20 Postgame

    A lot of fashionable comments here - pillow fight, we wouldn’t win if, etc. We won. Deal with it instead of trying to support your narrative. Both teams made some plays and both made mistakes. What I did see was an actual offense with IW in. I think this is worth exploring. And I...

    I saw a lot of good things with our offense. I’m happy to be disproved. IW has a savvy that is beyond his experience. His ability to run, like Juice opens up the game for the other running backs. We can win this way.

    Poll: Starting QB

    I have my doubts about IW. Reminds me of a lot of guys with so much talent but just doesn’t have the ‘it’ factor.

    I don’t put much stock in ‘pissed from last year’. That May account for some early emotion but then they have to play football for 60 minutes. Let’s see what happens.

    Mackovic didn’t recruit well that’s why the record declined. He had great success principally with Mike White recruits.

    Illinois 79, Purdue 62 POSTGAME

    Boy watching Purdue's offense brought back nightmares of Weber’s horrid offense. So glad we have BU’s offense. So much more fun to watch.
