Donating sky high for Illini

Mike Thomas and Rick Darnell have plenty of reasons to thank Illinois athletic department donors.

Twenty-eight million of them. And counting.

As the fiscal year draws to a close on June 30, Illinois has already set a record for donations.

As of Thursday, the total was at $28,123,205.

That will buy a lot of basketballs, athletic tape and sports drinks.

Bob Asmussen: Ferguson to carry load

The email came from SMU earlier in the week, asking me to continue as part of the Doak Walker National Selection Committee.

Easy answer: Yes.

Like the Heisman, Lombardi and other awards, it is an honor to be among those casting votes that count.

This year, there might even be an Illinois player on my ballot.


Updated: Offensive lineman commits to Illini

CHAMPAIGN — Zeke Martin will make history when he plays at Illinois.

The offensive tackle from Medina (Ohio) High School, who orally committed to the Illini on Wednesday, will become the first player named Zeke to suit up for the Illini.
It’s not a nickname, either.


Juco receiver Barr catches on late

CHAMPAIGN — Illinois had the typical pomp and circumstance reserved for National Signing Day the first Wednesday in February.
