    I hope that Illinois always wins. But, I went to Illinois because I was convinced that Illinois could win a national championship. It hasn't happened but, I still have dreams. Others have indeed said that the triple option is an offense that always wins. Not true at all! If this was true...

    At the time, Mark retired to pursue more endeavors of a religious nature. Not sure he has changed his mind. He went to high school, college, and retired in S FL so, I am not sure a northern school would have a real shot. But, who knows?

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

    You need to remember that our best player only averaged 3 yards per carry after our first two offensive plays in the game. So, that becomes 3 plays and out again. Do you really think that Lovie would have gone for it on 4th and one while deep in his own territory later in the game? Yep, that's...

    It actually is almost impossible to run the ball more. With the exception of our last two drives, we barely threw it. That, in my mind, is what caused a lot of the problems for the offense. I can remember earlier in the season, Peters was 10 of 12 for over 100 yards and so many on this board...

    We have not been destroyed by anyone this year. That is a very pessimistic outlook.

    More 3 yard runs by Corbin and a 3rd down pass. Corbin has averaged about 3 yards a run since his first two runs at the start of the game. Not a good way to move down the field.

    Stop running these 1 and 2 yard patterns. Get some heart and call a real pass play!

    Mix your play calling up. We are just begging Neb to win this game. We can't only pass on 3rd and long.

    It's incredible how much of the game you're missing. Great run by Brown after throwing a pass to back Neb up!

    We need to keep mixing up our offense. Neb is mixing in blitzes a lot. We can make them pay. Stay aggressive and score a bunch of points in the 2nd half, Just running the ball is not a formula for success. We can break things if we do running and passing. Make them keep guessing.

    I agree. Trying to run it way too much.

    I'm not sure that I entirely agree with this. We had two safeties that hadn't played a single snap at safety this season. Also, one of those two had been out the season and most of the preseason with an injury.

    As did Gary Moeller who we barely won a game under. Don't want to repeat that precedent. Boring football while getting destroyed.
