    Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

    Still to early ...As someone else said best offer ...Add that there probably isn’t a huge hurry right now since signing day is upon us & any bigger program is still playing. ... hold your Illinois offer until you have a chance to see what else is out there & if the coach that recruited you is...

    But we know that is why Steward chose Duke.

    I wonder if he could play some 4 if he can shoot? I imagine quickness wise he might struggle in man, but with that length he should be a able to sag off a bit and compensate a bit or play some zone.

    Pregame: Illinois at Nebraska, Saturday, November 21st, 11:00am CT, FS1

    I hope so. Not convinced Nebraska is any good, but we need to be better than we were at Rutgers. At least we have left ourselves plenty of room for improvement. Get the running game going, control the ball, & hope their QB gift wraps a few passes to us like Rutgers did.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (November 2020)

    Personally I think the misses are way overplayed. We have as many/more top 50 recruits in the last 4 classes as MSU & if the class is only Goode we will be ok, we could use a big, but we aren’t desperate at this point.

    Pregame: Illinois vs Minnesota, Saturday, November 7th, 2:30pm CT, BTN

    Werner/Illini Inquirer have a pod cast out where he interviews Minnesota 247 writer. He thought we should be able to run all over them. Said the linebackers look awful, defense couldn’t contain, worst defense in football @ 9+ yards per play. Said new offensive coordinator was locked in on the...

    Pregame: Illinois vs Minnesota, Saturday, November 7th, 2:30pm CT, BTN

    I think we win this one. Minnesota looks to generate a lot of there offense from the run, we looked ok against the run for the first half against Wisconsin. Right the time of possession a little bit and we can slow Minn. For first game, with little prep Taylor did enough to think we can move the...

    Wisconsin 45, Illinois 7 Postgame

    On the bright side, if you are looking for a deal on a beach house rental or to buy there seems to be a surplus on Madison’s craigslist.

    Wisconsin 45, Illinois 7 Postgame

    Really? We were more than one player awful & his backup scored our only TD. We didn’t cover anyone, we bailed them out several times with stupid penalties, and the offense couldn’t move the ball, let alone score.

    Pregame: Illinois at Wisconsin, Friday, October 23rd, 7:00pm CT, BTN

    Actually I don’t either, However, the original poster thought we would be pissed from the spread. So my point was if you believe pissed helps, I’m not really putting that in the advantage Illinois side.

    Pregame: Illinois at Wisconsin, Friday, October 23rd, 7:00pm CT, BTN

    Wisconsin is still pissed from last year as well. I think we can keep it close, but think we will need to pull off some turnovers to beat Wisconsin at home. What I would really like to see is our O-line show what they are made of and run it down their throats, would be some nice irony there...
