Most reputable schools would have let this staff go after last season, but we offered a promotion to Lovie. Whitman and Lovie are both good people, family men, but can talk their way out of anything (politicians). We walk down a dangerous path with them at the helm. I'll always root for Illinois, but this is, and has been, a joke for a long time.
I guess this can go one of two ways. They learn from all of the mistakes the last two weeks and somehow scratch out four conference wins or tank and go 3-9 again. Based on what they've done under Smith so far it's probably the latter. Either way you can't be happy where this thing is in year four.
