    That put in at the end of half is completely inexcusable. I can handle a lot of issues with a struggling team, but laziness is not one of them....

    They should feel good about the win and Illinois should note that this is not a gimme game

    Nebraska 75, Illinois 60 POSTGAME

    Illinois has not lost 6 of their first 8 games since the 1906 season....second season in program history. I would say this falls shy of any rebuilding expectations

    We often forget that these are Kids. What exactly did Tilmon do wrong? Losing him hurt, but that happens when you get rid of the coach that recruited him (a move that needed to happen). Then, our bone head fans come out and make statements like “We don’t want him, he doesn’t fit B.U.s system...
