    Illinois 97, Chicago State 38 Postgame

    He has been in two games at this level, in his life. He has to learn what he can and can't do.

    Illinois 97, Chicago State 38 Postgame

    I agree about Hawkins. He needs to look for his shot more. I think that he is more worried about fitting into his tole and not making mistakes. Remember that he was never the 1st or 2nd option on his high school team but he definitely knew what his role was when he was on the floor. I think that...

    Illinois vs Ohio State, Saturday, November 28th, 11:00am CT, FS1

    You are right. Juice went deep early and we scored two touchdowns. The dbs became conscious of getting beat deep and OSU's DC backed off on strong run support from his dbs. We didn't go deep as much Saturday but, we threw sometimes on first downs and immediately after possession changes. I have...

    There is probably a much better chance of the pass opening up the run against OSU. I had a coach that destroyed us with your philosophy during my time at Illinois. And we had a few linemen that played in the NFL.

    Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

    Recruiting is so limited in 2020 that there is not much one can do to improve one's situation. The "Illinois" name doesn't mean much to most of these kids and that is basically what they are using to recruit with, in these times. I guarantee that everyone else is using the same methods and so...

    I believe those prices are for the cardboard head shots for the season.

    Not really concerned if he is B1G ready at the moment. A&T is not a B1G team.

    Just don't think we can be successful if running is all we are trying to do against a top rated OSU run defense. If we want to keep out defense off the field, we need to get first downs. OSU lost a number of db's from last year 's team. We need to mix up our play calling and get first downs...

    Not being argumentative at all. I just think that all three would start for A&T. If they get into the game in the first half, any and all jitters should probably have gone away. In a blowout, they should be relaxed in the 2nd half. Now, if the game is tight, then they might have a problem. Just...

    You're still staying visible with practice highlights. Kids that want to see Curbelo and Miller get to see them in practice. We haven't had a game with them in it, yet.

    You truly don't think that guys like Miller, Curbelo, and Hawkins couldn't maintain a blowout?

    How to watch the Illini

    I actually have Sling Blue with the sports add on. I watch our game with Nebby on FS1, I believe that FS1 is part of the Sling Blue package.

    Illinois 41, Nebraska 23 Postgame

    He is getting a lot of time. He might not be in for a lot of pass plays because he could be our third best pass catching tight end.
