Illini Football 2022

I was only two games off in my basketball predictions so here we go with my perfect football predictions
Wins: Wyoming, Indiana, Virginia, Chattanooga, Minnesota, Northwestern
Losses: Wisco, Lowa, Nebraska, MSU, Purdue, scUM
Good enough for 6-6(3-6) and a bowl game which in everyone's eyes would be quite the successful season after losing 10 guys to the NFL and other key players.
That is very close to being correct, but the actual reality will be just a bit different. We're actually going to lose to VA, and we'll beat Purdue.

But good job, you are very close. :)

Hold my beer! I pick the Illini against Nebraska until they can actually beat us. Purdue is winnable. If those two happen I believe that the beloved take one from Wisky or Iowa making us the Big Ten West Champs.

Interesting looking new font.
That's not a new font specific to Illinois. It's just the font that Carhartt uses for this particular line of sweatshirts. Here's a Kent State and Indiana sweatshirts with the same font.

I see the Virginia game as a 4th quarter pick em game. No way they get off to the out of sight start they had last year.

Our defense really started playing well after the UVA game. Excited to see Season 2 under Coach Walters.
Year 2 seems to be the prove it year a lot of the time. There’s a ton of film now on how we defend certain offenses. There’s film on how teams adjusted on us and how we defended their adjustments. So now, we have to be able to defend that 3rd and 4th level of adjustment too. Can we do that this year? That’s what we have to prove.

We also have to prove it without the best safety we’ve had in quite a while, which was one of the reasons our defense got so good. We gotta prove we can cover those extra adjustments AND do it with new players in new positions. It’s exciting and scary at the same time.

Frost will be fired by mid season.

I think 7-5

W's : Wyoming Indiana, UT Chattanooga, Minnesota, Northwestern Nebraska, Purdue
L's Wisconsin, Iowa Michigan State, Michigan

Last year we upset Penn State and only loss by 10 to Iowa. So with some good QB play I think its do-able.
