    The Kingfisher

    Thing this is another bad idea from student government. They always seem to be trying to get a mascot when they aren't even involved in school athletics... My preference is no mascot anyways. I am a Packers fan and they don't have a mascot and it doesn't take anything away from gameday in my...

    Bowl Projections

    Thinking we may get a good crowd for the game. Lots of west coast Illini will go I would imagine, I know I will be looking to go if its in Cali

    How to watch the Illini

    I have YoutubeTV and then Philo for Hallmark Channel, A&E, and History Channel. Philo has some overlap but at only $20 per month I'm still saving getting both over what I was paying for cable.

    Illinois vs Michigan (Oct. 12): 11:00am CT, ABC

    Only going to the Michigan and Wisconsin games this year and was hoping at least one of them was going to be a 2:30 kick, but I guess that's a sign of how we haven't lived up to expectations this year.

    Italy Tour

    There is no direct flight from Chicago to any of the airports in Milan. I assume they are flying American and would rather connect in the states than in Europe somewhere. The reason why I would go through Miami would be for the extra miles so that could be it too.

    How to watch the Illini

    I recently moved out of B1G country and as a result of exorbinant fees charged by the cable service where I moved to get BTN we decided to cut the cord. Based on what we watched and prices we decided to go with Youtube TV (best selection of channels for the price) and Philo TV (gets us A&E...

    War Chant has been retired

    Reasons for them banning it non-withstanding. I do think it wasn't the best 3rd down cheer. It was certainly better for when they would announce starting lineups in basketball or when the team was coming down the tunnel in football. Also as I saw some people say on Twitter it does seem like a...

    Manny Pacquiao

    I am not a boxing expert or even so much of a fan at all but I watched this one because of the name recognition and the fact that it was free on ESPN, it was good to see high level boxing on free tv. As to the result it seems like it was a double edged sword for the sport. It got everyone...

    Cubs want to host college bowl game at Wrigley

    Most people that I know that are casual fans won't go south for a minor bowl game but would absolutely go to Chicago to see the Illini play in a bowl. I think any B1G team, sans Maryland and Rutgers, would do great here. If there is a cold weather location that deserves a bowl I think Lambeau...
