The only opponent the Illini "D" held under 20 points was mighty Indiana (who rang up 13). I hope Mallory gets the Miami of Ohio job, too!

I too am pulling for Mallory to get the job. That way, 2 of the 3 coordinators that I want gone will be gone. Only one left to be gone (or perhaps reassigned) would be Disch. The only remaining present I want from Santa!!!

YES! We're almost there! Disch and Woodford still need to go. I am leaving a few extra cookies for Santa...
