Illini football fans need to be patient

Illini football fans need to be patient

The head coach was fired. The assistant coach was hired as head coach but was only given a one-year contract. That coach could not do any effective recruiting.

Illinois football coach Lovie Smith was set up from the beginning to have a couple of bad years. So anyone who is complaining about the Illini football team being a " bunch of no-talent freshman" is short-sighted and a fair-weather fan.

This country is now made of a bunch of people who want instant gratification and don't want to work for anything.

Keep up the good work, Coach Smith.
