Your lips to the Football god's ears.I think the Illini show their stuff in this game against EMU. I was not surprised that the Illini hit a little bump in the road last week. I also believe Connecticut played their best game in years hoping to upset a B1g team. I was not happy with the pick six, but I expected it to happen soon since Peters was staring down receivers against Akron, but no bad things happened in that game, it was just a matter of time. The good news is that most of the mistakes are correctable. With the defense only giving up one touchdown in two games, including a road game, we should feel pretty good about this team. Are the Illini a great all time team this year, no, but they can step up against Eastern Kentucky who just got throttled by a Kentucky team who is not as good as the Illini. The comeback by the Illini was very good to see and shows that this team doesn't hang its head and lose. They became the fighting illini on Saturday, and not the lie down illini as Dee Brown used to say. My predicted score in the next game is 38-16 with the Illini going into Big Ten conference play against Nebby undefeated and emerging 4-0. I do not think the Nebraska squad can stop the illini offense. I believe the illini defense is much improved and will not give more than 2 touchdowns and might be similiar to UConn, on toughdown and some field goals. Lots of turnovers in this one and hopefully a pick six by Hobbs. This is an 8-4 team.
