Tate: Wow! What a win

How big was Saturday’s upset by Mike Small's Illini, who beat No. 1 Cal? Enough to get columnist Loren Tate back from vacation to weigh in:

“We saw Illinois upset No. 1 Ohio State in football (28-21 in 2007) and shock No. 1 Indiana in basketball (74-72) last February, and there have been others through the decades. But Saturday’s UI golf triumph over California earned a special place in the UI trophy room.

"The Final Four stage produces special meaning, and the 3-2 triumph was accomplished by a geographically disadvantaged Northern school against a Cal superteam with five golfers ranked higher than any Illini. Mike Small’s teams continue to astound.”
