Most importantly, he is capable of winning early games and buying time for Williams to learn. Given the different skill sets, it also sets of the potential for difficult game planning with two different qbs later In the SeasonIf nothing else he's a guy I will can learn from for a year.
To state the importance here, if we look at predictions with rivers at qb, all bowl predictions rely on going 3-0. All we need is someone that can help with that. Lose rivers and Roundtree and the first 3 games are even more important. My guess is Robinson could win the three games. If he gets injured, we need someone. Had Stevens chosen us, our path would have gotten easier. With no one, our path becomes considerably more challenging.Aug. 31____Akron - W

No one will give a guarantee. But he will have more reps than I will, and he knows the climb I will is about to undertake in learning the playbook, speed of the game, etc. I think any transfer would feel confident in getting repsPeters is going to want some assurance that he's the starter and primary QB for the season. If he thinks for a second that IW will be
taking over (or even running some wildcat packages) early in the season, he's not coming here. That's why he's considering the MAC
schools. We must tread a very fine line if we want him in orange and blue. QB's always say they want to compete for the job, but a
transfer wants a committment.
No one will give that guarantee, and teams would be wary of someone who expects to play no matter what.No one will give a guarantee.

The NCAA has just created the opportunity for Luke's grandfather to die before the next football season without ever seeing Luke play for the O&B.
The bolded is really infuriating.The NCAA has just created the opportunity for Luke's grandfather to die before the next football season without ever seeing Luke play for the O&B.
How about that potential outrage to happen.
I hope it does not, but then, we are Illinois, after all.
And yet another question that I have not seen an answer for: What exactly is the basis for this 100 mile limitation? It appears to be pretty arbitrary to me. Why not 150, or 200 miles?
Hey! You go NCAA!!
