    Redbox Bowl Game Thread: Illinois vs Cal

    That sounds right. 7 wins would be a step forward.

    Looking ahead to 2020

    We have to start 4-0. Then we can win our homecoming game versus Purdue, and shock the world with a victory over Ohio State to get to 6-6.

    Contract extension, raise for AD Josh Whitman

    I can't picture a better AD for Illinois than Josh Whitman, and I'll say that regardless how Lovie and Underwood do over the next few years.
