Don't forget what Matt did against Michigan. I would be extremely shocked if he did not start. But I would love nothing more than to get a 21+ lead going into the second half and let Coran play the rest of the game.Would like to see Coran either starting or relief. Seems to have good size and run ability. Throwing and decision making seem more of the question.
NW has had issues scoring, so they will play to make less mistakes and take advantage of ours.
Which QB can put up 25 pts while not allowing NW freebies.
Would like to see it..but he has been banged up all year and insiders say he is not ready. If Brandon is out in a game we don't have to win it is worth consideration..but if they don't let him throw and mix up play calling on first down, probably not going to work.Is Juice 2.0 available? Maybe I missed it but is he out?
If he didn’t play against Iowa, I think he can play against NW and in the bowl game and still keep his redshirt.
This is a flippanaration-free zone. There will be no flippanating around here.I'm a big fan of George Orwell's (Eric Blair) "1984".
This is "Hate Week" as far as I'm concerned. Beat Evanston U!
What this world doesn't need is more hate; I'm using the world flippantly.
I predict: Illlini 42, Evanston 10 ; may the best team win. But I sure hope it's Champaign U!
I think the team will be very ready for 'Chicago's Big Ten team.'I would hope a program just now peeking into the realm of the relevant would not take this one lightly. My life of experience as an Illini fan leaves me cautious though especially if Peters is a no go. Tho this game doesn't matter for bowl eligibility, it does matter for perception IMO. Hopefully a big crowd shows up & is sent away happy feelings looking toward the bowl game & 2020.
A rainy day may be ok for the game plan tho as we might go the Purdue game route & just ground and pound all day.
