    Illinois Football Uniforms

    annual reminder that this is what our uniform should look like Seriously though - What do we need to do to make this our primary set? These unis are incredible

    I wonder if we make a PJ Fleck-esque agreement with him in order for him to take "Littyville" with him to Temple??? * *This is a Joke

    would LOVE for these to become our permanent set. best look we've ever had. would you go with numbers on the helmet like the original ones, or go for an updated version with a block I or shield?

    I Always thought these would look nice with a slightly smaller font and the Block I or Shield underneath it - something similar to what LSU currently has.

    i thought the football unis were the best part of the rebrand - didn't think those needed a facelift this quickly, but oh well. orange #s on blue jerseys = good, blue logo on orange helmet = :hurl: I think they would have been better off ditching the Grey homecoming unis in favor of the butkus...

    The new basketball uniforms

    I agree - although I wouldn't mind a few tweaks (i.e. the gray ones can go away)

    Maybe I missed this - but there are new football unis coming this season too?

    The new basketball uniforms

    I'd like to see the "Fighting / # / Illini" layout become a permanent template for bball moving forward, and even though I'm not in love with the font, if thats what our current font looks like, we should roll with it until it is changed across all sports. I'd also like to see of the forgotten...

    Holecek would be a very interesting choice - we would go from little-to-no local talent to having linchpins in both StL & Chicago recruiting

    I agree that talent was a major obstacle, but the play calling last year was abysmal. This team was lacking talent and experience in many positions, however it was not completely devoid of talent. We had a VERY good set of WRs (Dudek, Turner, Smalling) and a number of Playmakers at RB as well...

    I thought I saw on Twitter that it might have been one of RichRods guys at Arizona - The staff there was waiting to see who Sumlin was going to keep

    I get that people are antsy, but I'll take this over getting publicly dragged like we have in previous coaching searches #ShakaWatch

    He will essentially be a glorified QB Coach, Nagy has full control of the offense and has already said he'll be the one calling plays

    People arguing that we should get rid of the playoff because UCF didn't get in/ there was no "justice" in the selection of teams must be forgetting how much more ambiguous things were in the past. Under the previous systems, this year's champion would have been even more in question. FBS is the...

    Completely understand re: UCF - but this isn't a new narrative. P5 teams have a heavy advantage due to inherent SOS boost they get from being in a stronger conference. Teams like UCF Have to understand that, and do a better job of scheduling their out of conference opponents. The win vs. auburn...

    This is kind regards of contradictory, isn't it? Alabama lost a relatively close game on the road to their biggest rival, who was ranked in the top 10. If 'one game does not a season make' why doesn't the rest of bamas season matter?

    I get being sick of the SEC, but doesn't both teams winning justify the Committee's decision to put them both in?

    War Chant has been retired

    The Chief isn't coming back, ever. Its time for everyone to come to terms with that, as unfortunate as it may be. The university needs to build a new brand, but has to strip away most of whats left of the old one before it can do so - again, unfortunate Illinois is in Identity Purgatory, and...
