I mean, I don't think it would be an exaggeration to say "we cannot stop any offense" and from there surmise a 2- or possibly 3-win season (Rutgers) is the most likely outcome. Illinois 24 - 41 MinnesoterTough to see us getting to 5, let alone 6, without this being one of them.
SDS is a good program and Minn. went on the road and beat Fresno State, which Illinois could never hope to do. Illini should have a big advantage coming off a bye and with the Gophers playing this week. If Illinois had decent coaching this would matter.These guys struggled with South Dakota State and Georgia Southern...let's beat the brakes off the Gophers.
