    Pregame: Illinois vs Indiana (Pa.) (Exhibition), Friday, October 29th, 7:00pm CT, B1G+

    I was encouraged this year because I thought we had actual coaches finally. I may be wrong.

    I hope Underwood does. I am not petite myself, but I want Bielema to coach a long time and not drop dead from a heart attack.

    I love Bielema, but I might add a couple more Xs to the shirt size.
