    Game Thread: Illinois vs Iowa

    Pay back time- Illinois is going to need some home cooking to beat Iowa- Check That Box. I see Illinois winning this by 10 points.

    Pregame: Illinois vs Michigan State, Tuesday, February 11th, 8:00pm CT, ESPN

    I Love this team but it feels like we are taking on a wounded dog with Michigan State. State is in a tail spin and I think we caught them at a bad time.

    Illinois 95, North Carolina A&T 64 POSTGAME

    Two things that really stood out- 1. Every time the Big man get's the ball he puts it down low instead of going straight up upon the catch- This scrappy NC ATT team was all over that move. Yes I know Kofi tore it up against a much smaller team but come Big 10 play he needs to stop doing that...

    Missouri 63, Illinois 56 POSTGAME

    Illinois looked a step slow the whole game. They missed more lay ups this game than I can recall in recent memory. A step slow.

    Pregame: Illinois vs Northwestern, Saturday, November 30th, 11:00am CT, FS1

    This game will be a war- a close contested battle to the end. You can bet that NW is not going to roll over and the trick play book will be out. Illinois 24-NW 21.

    Michigan State opens as a 12 point chalk vs Illinois. Get ready for a Illinois Straight up Win and cover for the Orange and Blue

    Illinois 38, Rutgers 10 POSTGAME

    Don't look now but Illinois has won 3 straight Big 10 games (when is the last time that has occurred?) Michigan State up next and I think they are coming off a bye week to prepare for this good Illinois Football team. Great win today guys.

    Minnesota 40, Illinois 17 POSTGAME

    I started the week thinking if Illinois can't stay within 14 points of Minnesota then all is lost for this year. I ended the week confirming that this is going to be a brutal stretch for this team to win one more game let alone cover 14 points vs Minny or any one else.

    Pregame: Illinois at Minnesota, Saturday, October 5th, 2:30pm CT, BTN

    - Regarding Illinois - Minny 14 I don't think you are missing anything. Both teams have bad Defenses. Illinois strength is the running game on Offense- Miny strength on Offense is passing. Any team that gives up 700 yards a game to Nebraska (Illinois) is a bad defense- Dont care how it is...
