    Game Thread: Illinois vs Purdue

    I don’t understand; what are the criteria for deciding between “play game without these players” and “cancel game”?

    I don’t understand how a guy gets behind two safeties in that situation

    Cannot believe they did not find way to give possession back to Wisconsin

    Looked like the line judge on the Illinois sideline had him short. The other line judge gave him more yardage

    I respectfully disagree. To my eye, the only one that’s right is 7. When he wears that helmet the I will be vertical. Others will be tipped forward. That’s how I see it anyway.

    I think it’s fine but I do wish they’d apply the decals such that the I is vertical when the player is wearing the helmet, instead of being vertical when the helmet is sitting on a table.

    Six wins. A bowl game. Most of the starters returning. New state of the art facility. No program scandals or violations that I’m aware of. Head coach and AD positions appear stable. I’m happy to see all these improvements and am already looking forward to 2020 season where I expect Illini...

    So many running plays that went nowhere today. I’m interested in knowing how much of that was due to poor o-line play, and how much was due to Robinson’s poor reads and decisions on when to keep ball etc.

    I’ve watched the game winning play about a dozen times now. The running back makes a great block on a blitzing LB. Without that block, Peters can’t roll out, and the TD pass never happens.

    The 4rh down pass interference call in the end zone - - that is the call we historically never get. We got the call today.

    Feel so bad for Coach Dantonio. He seems like such a nice guy.
