I really want Bielema to embarrass Brohm. IMO Brohm is easily one of the most overrated / over paid coaches in college football. Its baffling that he's one of the top 10 highest paid coaches.

The Last Best Place
Attended for 6 months in 75 during g i bill funded tour of state colleges with the exceptional funding provided by Vietnam Nam era g i bill. Also a former student at eastern, SIU, Lakeland JC and Illinois State. 6 yrs, 1 degree. Too much fun, mostly at Panama Reds, the Lion and whatever was on top of Century 21 tower.

Anyone remember the All Star Frogs?
I think I have some DI ads from local bands like Feather Train, REO, Duke Tomato and the like. Should start a whole thread on memories while we can still remember. (Or was it Tomatoe lol)
In my day, we had:
Boni's (our favorite - on 6th. Died our sophomore year). Turned into a mini mall.
White Horse Inn (bucket nights!)
Thunderbird in Urbana (freshman bar - Urbana was 18, Champaign 19)
Kam's - heavy frat presence
Dooley's (later COD's)
Cochranes (across from EE building - quarter Little King's on Wednesdays!)
Illini Inn (mug club)
Red Lion (Changed names several times, was a gay bar for awhile)
Panama Reds (on Green by RR tracks)
Mabel's (bands, on Green street)
Murphy's - grad students
Round Robin - 10 cent hot dogs
DeLuxe Billiards (oh, the fish sandwiches)

Lot's of others that were more restaurants that served beer (Treno's, Coslow's, Zorba's, etc.)

Geez - how'd I ever graduate.
You nailed my list. There was huge bar at the same location before Cochranes's. I went there 1976-1977 as a freshmen to play foosball. Anybody remember the name?


Panama City, Florida
I seem to remember...or partially remember, R&R having Long Island pitchers for $5...maybe on Thursdays??? Long time ago... However, I always have a mix of "all the clears" in a liter bottle (or two) and can produce said LIT on demand (although, mine is better:LOL:).

Oh yeah...Beat Purdon't because they stink....PU...

Huge size or huge importance? Lol. This will be an important recruiting and progress weekend and I hope that the team bounces back and shows who leads the B1G West.
