Dear Loren Tate:
You hinted that Illinois would some points on the board. Is 19 what you meant? Or, did you have a weak moment and forget that when Nathan S. goes on the road in the Big 10, he plays incredibly poorly?
What time will the football team be celebrating their performance today via a get-together at Kam's?
Same old, same old!
Illinois does not play well on the road, nor do they have any offense when the wind is blowing more that 10mph.
Nathan's are is just not that strong.
Did anybody really think we would win this game?
I think Cubit was a great hire, but the defense (if you can call it that) really needs help.
