Interesting, Illinois is 4-1 against the spread, with the only exception being Kent State in week 1. Wins and losses aside, this shows that Illinois so far has outpaced expectations.

The cluster of Purdue (56), Northwestern(55), Minnesota(61), and Nebraska(83), will define the season for Illinois(100). Win Three of these four and we go bowling. All would be upsets.
I do like the way our Home/Away shapes up. Getting the better of that group at home - Purdue and Minn I think improves chances of games we’ll be slight dogs for. They way they are playing now Nebraska on the road we can feel good about.

I don’t feel horrible about Iowa at home - similar to 3Qs of PSU I think we can give ourselves a chance to hang. I think going out east to Maryland won’t help us (they are ranked in 40s).

I could see bowl bid coming down to NW game. Tickets for that are as low as $1 now. I’m tempted to buy up chunks of those and give them away to anyone willing to wear orange.

Purdue is a decent team. We need to beat decent teams. Hoping for a win, but we need to get better for it to happen.

Predicting another win against PU. AJ will only get better from here and take away a couple of easily caught passes (rust from the bye week) and the win today looks all that much better.

If a touchdown pass against Missouri in the last couple minutes is not overturned, Purdue probably beats Mizzou.

Purdue is a passing team and the game against Eastern Michigan was played in a steady rain from the hurricane. It rained every single minute.

They beat a then ranked Boston College.

They beat a bad Nebraska team in Lincoln but it is still Nebraska.

This Purdue team is not that bad of a team, they are beatable but we will have to bring our best defensive game of the year.

Agreed. This Purdue team is better than their record indicates. They are quite good on offense, but not great on D. We will have to play our best game of the year to win, which I think is doable.

Is there a movie on this flight?

What the heck is going on with Dorsey? Also, anyone know if Bennet Williams will be back for the Purdue game?
