    I agree we are not at a lower level...not sure how it could get much lower than that...but we are certainly not at the level we should be with what everyone considered a positive Head Coach-hire back then. Granted, this year will not necessarily be a true reflection of on-field results because...

    Wisconsin 45, Illinois 7 Postgame

    Wasn't expecting a win, but was at least expecting the offense to score a couple of touchdowns, maybe a field goal or two, and didn't expect the defense to look as pathetic as it did. In short, I didn't expect a win but was expecting a competitive team. We did not get anything close to that.

    I compare what Lovie is doing to the same formula that Mike White followed in the early '80's. White brought in a lot of JUCO transfers and turned the program around. Granted that only lasted about four or five years, but it kick-started a program that was in a very similar position at the...

    Regarding Reggie Love and Illini in his Top 7, Autry Denson was recruiting him to Notre Dame. Denson has just accepted the HC position at Charleston Southern. Granted, Notre Dame is Notre Dame...and Denson leaving may not even matter. But that speaks to one of the things that Josh...
