Wow, I think that I understand that. (starts looking for DC positions, quitting day job)
I think we are a more balanced team this yearCan't compare those stats year over year without considering the competitive inbalance of last year. We have been in closer games this year than last year. We are not playing against our foes 2nd and 3rd string while down 40 points.
Ill will take last years rushing but this year's passing (Perers, receiving corps).
Excuse me: that should be AN Ohio state university. Can I trademark the word "AN" ?Don't think I want this developing team clobbered by The Ohio State University.
How about sending Minnesota?
I think that’s the way I feel too. If we’re winning or down by less than a TD, I think we’ll win outright.OK....I don't post much and after this you all might understand why. I believe that if we are winning or keeping it close at halftime, it's our game. If you look at the second half against every team from Michigan to now, our halftime adjustments have been spot on. I would love for us to come out and punch them quick and hard, but I will not get too concerned as long as it is close at halftime. I will wait until after the 3rd qtr to get worried. Just my 2 cents.
As somebody has already stated, I am also cautiously optimistic about this game.One of my kids has been babbling since 3:30, so I guess I’m up and ready. When does the game start? 230? Gah.
need turnovers, need Peters to hit on some passes. An early defensive score could really shock Sparty.
LOL...come on, man! There are two Ls in Illini. One 3-L Illini could be forgiven, but two?! You had one job!Don't have a gut feeling about this game. I just dion't know. All i know is that Illlini need one more win to be bowl eligible. Do it, Illlini!
C'mon! It means so much to the program and us - the long-suffering fans. Do it for you, then for us.
A simple ask!Is it too much to ask for complete annihilation of MSU on the road, so we can enjoy a bye week of chatter on how we've emerged as a team that no one wants to play and Lovie Smith has succeeded in raising this program from the ashes?
Because that's what I want.
