    Pregame: Illinois vs Lewis (Exhibition), Friday, November 1st, 8:00pm CT, BTN+

    This gives a bit of a look at what BU is saying about Damonte. He does like him (at least publicly). http://news-gazette.il.newsmemory.com/?publink=0f5561e4d_134115a

    Great. With our luck he will come here and the NCAA will give us the death penalty for playing an athlete who had an agent because he talked to his mom.

    A couple of local articles (News-Gazette) have pointed out that the proper pronunciation of Kofi's last name is CO-burn.

    With the right wind we can hit the FG from beyond 60 yards. Not inconceivable. We need some hope. Please.

    Bears / NFL Thread 2019-2020

    Trying not to beat this horse to long but there is a difference when a single employer (team) takes action and when an entire industry acts in concert to deny that person a job. I know the First Amendment doesn't cover private action but there is a point there that is different when an entire...

    I agree the argument should not succeed. I just fear it might. The experiment has definitely gone off the rails.

    It is hard to believe that these two teams can look so different from one half to the other. Harbaugh is in serious danger if he can't beat us.

    And for those who called for Robinson to start at QB it sure looked to me like you might want to rethink that one.

    Minnesota 40, Illinois 17 POSTGAME

    Oh, the DC wouldn't be a problem. I'm sure Miles could step in and handle it. In fact, my dog could probably handle it just as well. I have been an Illini fan since Pete Elliot and Harry Combes days and I have a lot of patience for a bad coach. That is gone as it relates to Lovie and his...
