    Coaching Discussion/Carousel

    funny you should say this! In July of 2018 I was working an internship and counting down the days for football season to begin. I would google “Illini football” in my spare time (which was considerable at this particular job) and read articles from 247 or ESPN as they popped up. One day I...

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

    I'd love to see Isaiah Williams get some snaps in against Wisconsin. I've been looking forward to seeing that 2019 class (Williams, Beason, Cooper) make a difference on the field. I think we have a chance at getting a W on Friday and it would be awesome for that to set the tone for the rest of...

    Looking ahead to 2020

    I've thought our biggest weakness the past two years has been our pass coverage. If we can make a big jump on that front, our defense as a whole will be much more effective. All other aspects of the team (our offense and the rest of the defense) seemed to me to at least be competitive and will...

    Bowl Projections

    Can I ask why there is so much hate for the pinstripe bowl? My friends and I are planning on going and I think it would be really cool to play in New York. I’m also a huge baseball fan and it would be great to see Yankee Stadium! I think football in baseball stadiums is old school and fun to...
