    B1G Football Media Days 2021

    Does anyone have a video of him getting booed at the B1G tournament? I was there, booing too loudly to capture the video. I'm generally a very positive person, but that moment was well deserved.

    Old MI Recordings

    Who is the chief? (They usually announce that during the pregame run on.)

    Old MI Recordings

    I was in the MI from fall of 84 through the fall of 87. We did a CD/cassette combo or two, but I never got one. If you run across any of those, I would love to get access to it. Bill Olson was a great announcer for them and he's long gone. Andy Isbell is totally fine too, just nice to hear...

    The Marching Illini

    Any Marching Illini people on here that can answer why the MI did not play 3 in 1 during halftime at the spring game? Sign of things to come? Seems like the way we "retired" the war chant was just to never play it again.

    Pregame: Illinois vs Rutgers, Friday, March 12th, 5:30pm CT, BTN

    My group is meeting with Kevin Warren for a pregame drink. And a heated discussion. Weedy grass parking lot just off of I-70. Unless he doesn't show up.

    Pregame: Illinois vs Rutgers, Friday, March 12th, 5:30pm CT, BTN

    I got a spot for $12 about a block from the south end of the stadium complex, right off of 70.

    Pregame: Illinois vs Rutgers, Friday, March 12th, 5:30pm CT, BTN

    I was also thinking about asking him whether Illinois could be declared the B1G football champion. I mean, so far BB is winning all the press conferences and doing EVERYTHING right. Let's just skip the games and tailgate. We're undefeated and claim the trophy!

    Pregame: Illinois vs Rutgers, Friday, March 12th, 5:30pm CT, BTN

    I'm going to be there with some co-workers, and we will have downed some liquid courage by game time. I sort of hope I don't encounter him because I have a few choice words that might just spill out...

    Illini Football 2021

    Does anyone have any insight as to when we might hear about the NE game? I'm really hoping for a home game-Ireland sounds awesome-but we need the excitement of the new coach at home, not a game 2,000 miles away where we're outnumbered by Nebraska fans.

    Only disappointment was that he did not mention what food would be served after a win...

    The Illinois Football Coaching Search

    I'm only suggesting that "first lady of Illini football" is so bassackwards that I would prefer to avoid that title for a coach's wife. I wish the entire state of Illinois wore Illini clothes all the time.

    If we do hire him, I sincerely hope we will not have a "First lady of Illini football" picture taken.

    You forgot to eliminate anyone that wears a visor and/or someone whose mother's birthday is roughly the same time as B1G media days. We're getting somewhere by narrowing down the list with these types of restrictions!

    Lovie Smith out at Illinois

    The way JW answered that question during the presser, it sounded like a decision was made.
