    BB ordered 2 Millers and a Jamison. I think we're in store for some partying and celebrating! ILL-

    January Bowl Games

    Targeting the head, face or neck is a different form of targeting against defenseless players. They are trying to reduce injuries. I saw a lot of hard hitting out there today in this game and by Northwestern. There are a lot of penalties which don't get called every game. It was still clearly...

    No, that doesn't matter. This rule has been around for how long now? They don't want players tackling by leading with the crown of the helmet because making forcible contact with the crown is dangerous to both players.

    No, you're thinking of his wife, Eileen. The sticker guy actually has an interesting story. He was born without eyelids, so the doctors grafted some using his foreskin when he was a baby. He's been fine, just a little cockeyed.

    Pretty close. Looks like he's making a V for Victory Badge. Go Illini!

    It looks like a t-shirt and bikini bottom. The fact that people ask what it is should be a good indication of a bad design.

    Well, gee, thanks, and Merry Christmas to you, too. Did you include the receipt so I can return your gift?

    You are correct. Once upon a time, they didn't, but that loophole has been closed.

    Yes, as Gritty corrected me below.

    Correct. This was put in place with the understanding that they would have to figure out the details later. I'm fairly confident whatever rule they decide, it will be what's best for Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, etc.

    Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

    My understanding is that the 85 scholarship limit still stands, but current Seniors returning do not count towards that limit. There's also the question of whether a school can afford all of these extra scholarships. I don't think it would be an issue for most of the P5 schools, even with some...

    Poll: Grade the Bielema hire

    BB's comment came across as sour grapes. I don't remember any other coach publicly backing him. Meyer's reply was essentially that they would continue recruiting until a player signed. I don't think any coach thought their own recruiting would pick up because Meyer was in the conference.

    Poll: Grade the Bielema hire

    I forgot about that. I remember thinking what a d-bag comment. If I recall, Meyer wanted the rest of the conference to pick it up in terms of recruiting. I graded strictly on the hire, not how he has performed since. I can't ignore the drop in performance in almost every metric at Arkansas. I...
