We fell to 71st (from 56th) in the SP+ ratings, reflecting our worse-than-projected performance yesterday. FEI won't come out til Tue/Wed, but since we started at 89th there, we probably will see less of a fall.

Michigan is 17th. Stay competitive with them at all and we'll move up.

The 12th is my birthday. Last year I was planning on having a nice group tailgate, watching IL be at least competitive vs a B1G powerhouse, and enjoying the Butkus statue...
I will be doing none of those things.

Over Under on IL fan attendance? 15k?

Should be around 25-30, Michigan travels well.

Rutgers? Eesh. You’d have to take the under, 15k would be a big stretch. Hard times, hard times.

Ya I specified IL fans cause Mich fans should make it look better than what it is, like the Nebraska game

Somehow I see Illinois hanging in this game. Michigan's offense isn't anything special. Harbaugh and Lovie could both be out the door at the end of the season.

I hope you're right, but I don't think so. Harbaugh will figure out how to carve up our D just like everybody else.

I hope Peters doesn't have to play in this game, for his own sake. Our offense is going to look hideous out there.

I hope you are right, but I see Michigan running it down our throats and then torching us for big pass plays. We may hang in for a half, but they will wear us down and we all know how our tackling looks when guys get tired.

Does it really matter if we get beat 30-3 or 57-10 not really the season is over and it is time to move on. I hate what i just wrote because Lovie is a good guy and i wish him nothing but the best

Speaking of the under, this game is undergoing the curious combination of a relatively high line going up while the total goes down.

Opened at Michigan -19 o/u 56, now it's Michigan -22 o/u 52.

Vegas did not like what they saw from Matt Robinson.

I'll be flying most of the game. I guess I will pay for internet and watch the game.

If you hear about a plane diversion because a passenger had heart issues, you will know who. :illinois:

According to NCAA Football 20 simulations, IL is going 7-5 this year. But Michigan still kicks our butts
