Honestly, I feel like I have pretty average expectations for Illinois football, 6-6 and a bowl game. Why is that so hard to accomplish?

I do think Bret is the type of guy that can do this but we have to give him ample time because this is not going to happen overnight .

This is freaking Virginia. They have about 25,000 people in the stands. They are a perennial mediocre team.

We have so far to go just to get to below average.

yeah, i think the nebraska game gave us all unrealistic expectations. this is a multi-year rebuild. looks like old habits keep coming to the surface during the game.
as someone else said, can't outcoach years of no development in a few months...

The only reason I’m not to upset is because all of the fans wearing orange and blue are real happy and I’m telling myself those are Illini fans!!!! Not really!!!😔

We shouldn’t have been so excited about all the seniors coming back for an extra year. They’re not good

is anyone watch the OSU game? I'm glad we don't play them this year... that would be a physically dangerous game for us? We really need the weight room.. We just look smaller.
