I hope he retires after the season. He’s a bum. This other coaches have their seasons too and a few attending aren’t even working for a program in the state any more. We have more former coaches there than current.“We have our season right now,” Illinois coach Lovie Smith said Tuesday. “That’s what we’re concentrating on right now.”
Definitely don't want to lose focus on this season to think about the future. /s
What a horses ***. Lovie is pathetic. I never thought we could have a worse coach than Gary Moeller, but we somehow found one. Absolutely terrible representative of the university.
Why participate when you don't even recruit in-state? I can't in good conscious root for NW on Saturday but I sure as heck am rooting against Lovie
Coach Reed posted this. Not him FYI. Lots of well known athletes in the responses.
This is a complete fail by Lovie. I attended this clinic for roughly 10 years and had great times both at the clinic and in the evenings. One of the highlights was mingling with the Illini staff and the other presenters. Zook’s staff was by far the best. I understand that COVID has caused this to be a virtual event, but other conference head coaches are participating during their season. It is situations like this that turn Illinois prep coaches against the Illini and hurts in-state recruiting. In order to excel as a college coach, you must excel at these type of events. FAIL!
Final straw for me. Bye, Lovie.
Illinois made a big deal that they offered zooms in the spring but only 1 or 2 schools joined.
The head coach they are literally playing this week is part of these meetings. Good speakers, lots of interest. Sheesh.
