Despite all the doom and gloom here, it was one game. Penalties suck. Not sure why Illinois gets the same penalties year after year, despite who the coach is. Not sure what Bonner did. Barker was obvious, to say the least. The OL had a bad game. One. Peters made a big mistake, though it was a good play by the defender. He also threw four TD's and never panicked. We also had a late third down conversion to Sidney that was big and something we did not do last year. That play was huge. We were flat and missing players, on the fracking road. Their frosh QB, threw some dimes out there and they needed them. Despite all that, we won. There was a lot of good out there as well. It is obvious the WR corps is much better than last year. Stampley continues to make mistakes though and if he doesn't get it together... Defense front seven did well. Secondary is banged up or on suspension for a half. We need our starters back. Nice pick by Harding, at the end. This game will be a good one for them to learn from.
