    UIUC Tales

    I had quite a few big lectures with both basketball and football players but my favorite was a small summer class in 2010. It was public speaking and we had a debate tournament and the winner got a grade bump on our next speech. I beat Joelil Thrash in round 1 by debating the color red over...

    We're so thirsty to be mediocre that Bielema will always do just well enough to never get fired. He'll go 4-8 to 7-5 every year with the occasional 8 win year to keep us hoping. And for that people will want a statue of this oaf. If he's so good how are we even able to get him? Everyone...

    And has just about every high level donor willing to make either of them the highest paid coach in the B1G, because that's where the conversation would have to begin with either of them. And even then they still might not return the call.
