    Poll Update: Starting 5

    Assuming this poll is for start of the season: I can't see us going with a 4 guard lineup from the start - we'd get killed on the boards and frosh are known bad defenders... late season - yes as the opponent warrants but the B1G has too many teams with size to start the game with this line up...

    I think they (pollsters) are not accounting for the loss of Cassius enough. He ran that team for years and when we provided high pressure or ball denial on him - MSU struggled. It will be interesting to see how they behave now that he is gone.

    Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

    I think they call it "Buyer's Remorse". There are lawyers now who also specialize in helping the recruits get out of their timeshares as well. ;)

    Nice - Right in that meaty part of the curve. Not showing off, not falling behind

    Poll: Lovie Smith Job Performance Fan Eval

    tend to agree. Add to that a D or so on coaching hires. Maybe his choices were limited, but he's had a few pretty bad hires based on friendship/relationships.

    Illini Football 2020

    I get it - but there are some noises that are more obnoxious than others. The other idea is to enjoy the game without some knucklehead ringing or clapping something right in my ear. Oh, I also hate the whistlers who think for some reason everyone enjoys their two fingered talent. Now, everyone...

    that would then require ear plugs - hard pass on a drunk fan behind me ringing a cowbell in my ear for the entire game... I say create an app that then sends your cheer thru speakers located in your section - 4 buttons. Note, this could also be used from home if the stadium is empty or...

    Iowa Football Program Culture Criticism

    If significant change is needed (as noted in my post) yes. Not ad hoc, random breaking of any and all rules, but in a manner that is meant to call out something that is wrong - i am ok with that. Of course, you need to be able to deal with whatever consequences that follow - but yes, sometimes...

    Iowa Football Program Culture Criticism

    What significant and needed change has come about by following the rules of your school or employer? It is only now, given a sad and violent event that corporations are starting to at least acknowledge the issue.

    More please! Love seeing these types of breakdowns. Also notice Davison is his old self trying to go for the jewels at 6:45 against Giorgi.

    Iowa Football Program Culture Criticism

    Exactly. I think if you stop a minute to understand why the athletes are taking a knee and realize it is NOT to disrespect the flag, rather to call attention to a continuing and huge issue in this country. We can all choose to be offended by many things if we so desire but if we seek to...
