Im pretty tired of this mentality. Its the coaches job to build a relationship with in state high school coaches and change the perception of the program for the better, not just give up and accept that kids and coaches in state just dont respect us, so lets not give them the time of day. This...
If I had a dollar for every presumed commit that didnt come through, I might be able to buy out Lovies contract. I wish the staff would stop posting the ric flair gif all the time, it really starts to lose its value when the "wooo" doesnt come to fruition.
2020 class ranked 90th and no recruits from Illinois. Im confident a team can win with 3 star players with the right coaching staff, Im not confident we have the right coaching staff to coach these players up.

Purdue shreds the Illini defense 41-30. I still dont have faith in the staff to coach against an offense like that. The defense will look inept as usual again. I would gladly eat crow and start to sip the Kool Aid again if they win though
I feel weird about rooting for the Illini to get blown out so we can get rid of Lovie. I gave up on this season and we give Michigan a scare and now playing well against Wisconsin. Maybe if we have zero hope, expectations, or care for next season they will be successful
Keeping Lovie would be a job losing mistake. I believe if we fire lovie we can have a winning season with a decent coach with the talent coming back, I also believe we may have more players transfer out if we keep Lovie than if he is fired, I believe keeping him will also hurt recruiting for...
Jake Hanson just goes for the ball instead of the tackle on the TD run. Is anyone coaching the defense? Any casual fan has been pointing out poor tackling for years and it still seems it hasnt been worked on.
