    Barry Lunney Named Illinois Offensive Coordinator and QBs Coach

    Maybe not, but a posted link to a Google search for Lee Corso memes made me laugh just as much :)

    Pregame: Illinois at Minnesota, Tuesday, January 4th, 6:00pm CT, FS1

    This was not our worst game that season.... We lost another one two weeks later 38-33 to Penn State. We lost in the first round of the tournament that year to an 11th or 12th seeded Western Kentucky.

    Bowl Games

    Boise State has withdrawn from the Arizona bowl vs Central Michigan. Truthfully, this whole thing is becoming absurd.

    Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

    I think the worst was when we hired BB and then fired him during the press conference announcing we hired him. Confusing times to be an Illini fan.

    Gator Bowl: Rutgers vs Wake Forest

    In the grand scheme of things, Rutgers should get the nod. I’m just pissed because they were all “nah we’re good” until everyone else was all about it.

    I just love the "we're not interested until everyone else was interested" take Rutgers took on this...

    Gator Bowl: Rutgers vs Wake Forest

    The idea of a team playing in two bowl games seems... odd... I mean, to be clear, Northern Illinois earned the right to play in a bowl, and Illinois did not. But still... not a fan.

    Didn't Rutgers decline earlier? I guess they took that back...

    Gator Bowl: Rutgers vs Wake Forest

    Wonder who wins in a Jaguars/Wake Forest game. Maybe he should try to arrange that. The Jags might still be considered the underdog... 😂

    Gator Bowl: Rutgers vs Wake Forest

    Speaking realistically, what are the chances Illinois plays this game? I'd have to say less than 20%.... right? I'd love for them to, regardless of how competent we look. If we can find out in the next 24 hours that we can practice even 3 days next week, I'd have to think Illinois jumps all...

    Andre Curbelo

    I guess I get weirded out by all the “if this…” statements attached to Curbelo’s play. “If he plays well”, “if he’s playing at a high level”, “when he’s on”, etc… Couldn’t we say that about anyone? I feel like I’m just not seeing the same Curbelo you all are. This includes last year. He...

    Andre Curbelo

    I didn’t take BU’s statement as one of dread. I thought it had a more “he’ll be back, we just need to make sure he’s 100%” kind of feel. Like someone else said, you never make a guarantee as a coach. That said, I’m gonna be that guy (and I know I’m not the only one because others have said...

    Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

    There is something extra required to be an AD at Illinois. I’m not Lauren what it is, but JW seems to have it, and Mike Thomas did not. The bad match up kept Basketball and Football a dumpster fire, and it flat out ruined Mike Thomas. He was a really good AD before taking the reigns (won...
