    Always a toss up between NHL and NFL for the league worst at hiring coaches.

    Even if none of the transfers get waivers to play, Lovie needs to win 6 next year. There are four extremely winnable games on the schedule. That means they need to take 2 from the slate of Nebraska, @Minny, Wisconsin, @Purdue, Northwestern. I don't think this team can beat Michigan at home or...

    Agree here. He has slot receiver/corner and KR/PR written all over him

    Yeah. Our Illini are going to get thoroughly shellacked.

    Nebraska has a high powered offense with the type of QB Illinois hasn't been able to figure out. Offense will have to have a big day and the defense will have to play assignment sound if they want to have a chance.

    Minnesota safeties will be having nightmares about Reggie Corbin for weeks.

    You can blame a fair amount of offensive explosion and a terrible 3rd down conversion rate for the TOP numbers. This team either breaks a 40-yd TD run or goes 3 and out. Not great for TOP numbers.

    Mental mistakes, the wrong QB, and very conservative offensive and defensive playcalling. whoa. That sounds familiar.

    Winnable, but I don't think that's how it will end up.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm on the fence with Lovie too. He'll get one more year no matter what...the buyout is just too high. But did this game really move the needle for any of you? I understand Purdue on Homecoming, but this was a team we haven't beaten in a decade...at their house...with 5...

    Shame that the one ridiculously bad luck game every team has per year comes on the one day the defense looks not miserable.

    Last I saw him he was motioning for a sub as he gimped off in the first or second offensive series

    Score and get the ball back. A field goal is plenty, just move the ball to get some momentum. Stick with MJ.
