All the best to our boys today to bring home a bowl W in January for the first time in a long, long while. Thanks to them, and BB and the staff, in advance for a memorable season and expectations of more bounty to come. I haven't felt this good about the future of our program in more than 30 years.

Finally, enormous thanks to Mike Leach, and profound condolences to his family. I hope this game is a well-played and exciting one, if only as a tribute to a giant in the coaching profession, a towering innovator, and a self-deprecating, funny man in a game filled with overweening coaching egos. Gone much too soon, but his tremendous legacy will endure.

Sounds funny to say but it's true ......

30 + long years of blowout losses.............
1 good year a decade it seems........
coaches that had no business being a coach at our fine university....................
I can't eat lasagna without getting heartburn.....................
white beards bring me down............................
bad press because of improper player abuse...........................


Now we have a coach and staff that get it..............................proper approach to turning around a program in the depths of despair......
Impressive communication skills and a plan to recruit Illinois first and renewing relationships with Illinois HS '........................

Let's get a bowl victory and hit the recruiting scene to enhance the depth we need to continue the rise to the B$G West and new playoff picture..

I'm stoked about the future of the FB , MBB and WBB programs ..........................I really really am.........................

I'm sitting here in Paducah , listening to the Illini network radio pre-game show.................................

drinking a Dos Aquis ( not really )
eating a hard boiled egg , shell and all (not really)
drinking a Coke Zero Sugar chaser (not really )
reviewing all my State Farm Insurance coverages with Jake from State Farm (not really )

waiting for the bowl game to begin with the Illini vs. miss st.

Illini football in January.......................what a new feeling ...................been awhile......................

Now let's go get a victory and look forward to next year with a portal QB1 in the fold and who know's who will return from this years outstanding team and season.................................I am finally coming around to the fact that the Illini are trending upward with a solid vision of what it will take to win consistently and challenge for titles in the B$G.........................

BB is a keeper and I firmly believe he will fill out the coaching staff with truly outstanding leaders of men.......

Illini 24
miss st 20

LETS GO ILLINI !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ESPN Game Day crew just picked Miss St across the board. Let's prove them wrong!!
This entire broadcast is going to be a tribute to Mike Leach and everyone pulling for Mississippi State to win. We might as well just accept that.

We’re literally four minutes into this broadcast and the word “Illinois” hasn’t even been said yet
