    Thanks for the link! I don't typically search for write-ups on the opposition, but I really should.

    We only sat Corbin because I bet on the Illini last week. I'm not betting this week so we should be safe.

    Pregame: Illinois vs Eastern Michigan, Saturday, September 14th, 11:00am CT, BTN

    To be fair, if you lived in Nebraska you'd be happy to get out of state for a football weekend too. You've got three things to do on a weekend in Nebraska, you can eat prime rib, you can go to a football game, and you can catch a rodeo. There's a reason why every other family you see at Sunday...

    Illinois 31, UConn 23 POSTGAME

    I'm in the 'first road win in a short while' camp and my beer cup is half full. However, our secondary seems to have a way of making every QB we play look like a very solid starter. I guess the secondary is working exactly how Lovie wants? I mean they're giving up yards, stiffening in the red...

    Mike Epstein out for season with knee injury

    Here's to Mike's return next fall with Luke Ford and Marquez Beason. We all wish you a speedy recovery and no more injuries! Thoughts and prayers to everyone including Bobby Roundtree. I can't imagine the difficulties he and his family have gone through. Best to all.

    Pregame: Illinois at UConn, Saturday, September 7th, 2:30pm CT, CBSSN

    Thank you! My daughter has Hulu. Ah... looks like you only get CBSSN with Hulu's Live TV option. I'm not solid on this stuff. If someone knows how to get it please feel free to let me know. Thanks anyway.

    Illinois 42, Akron 3 POSTGAME

    I think there's a fair amount to take away from this game. Safeties need to improve tackling in open field. Linebackers need a lot of work in pass coverage but played the run well enough today. D-line looked good against Akron. QB play was solid but missed some wide open receivers and sailed...

    IW's touch on the ball rivals his moves on the run. His only challenge will be seeing routes develop and not throwing the pick. He really wants to push it and thread the needle. There's a massive WOW-factor there though. That is undeniable.

    Agree. It's going to be fun to see the first day of practice tomorrow. Can't wait to see how the QB's and WR's do. Can I PLZ see some catches?!?!? Be interesting to see who has the chemistry in ten days or so.

    Illini Football 2019

    So you're saying we have a chance. I can understand why we're rated so low in the division. We earned that. I think we have the pieces in place to surprise some folks, but it will be a surprise. Time to earn some respect this year I think. The kids are going to have to work their collective...

    So can we win 2 of 5 looking at Nebraska, Purdue, The PJ Fleck Sculling Team, Indiana, and the Mildcats? Which two are the most likely to fall victim to us?

    I really hope he regains some mobility, he can get back to class, graduate and join us as alums. He's a fighter and I'm glad he's seeing at least some progress.
