I got my orange Illini shirt and blue sweatpants on, got a ribeye in the oven with lots of leftover sides, getting pumped up to throttle the Fitz-man and kitties....

we will overcome any lack of players available and gain Lovie's first winning season as the Illini coach...

Injuries have been merciless this year. I'm glad we don't have to use that as an excuse for not bowling! Now let's win a butt-ugly game 10-9 or something, in true fashion of this "rivalry".
I think we'll be able to run the ball to victory today. Robinson doesn't have to be great or even good. Just don't do anything stupid. It may not be pretty, but I think we pop a few long runs and will grind it out.

Good guys. 20

Teams of years past gave us worry when we had so many injuries - especially to key players. I'm not nearly as worried this time around, but can't say I'd be willing to bet my beach house on this one.

Hoping we can run them over and the defense flips the field a few times.

ILL - 24
NW - 7
That is one hell of a list.

Good run for some of the youngsters, should be an exciting day for them.

Not feeling it today. Fitzgerald is a motivator and we have too many key injuries. Neither team will have 100 yards passing.
