This week In Illini History: Bill Self is how old?

Former Illini kicker Dan Beaver turns 60 on Christmas Day. Former hoops coach Bill Self isn't that old but does celebrate another birthday on Saturday.

Mike Thomas spent Saturday in St. Louis. The Illinois athletic director took in his fourth Braggin’ Rights’ game between his Illini and Missouri at the Scottrade Center. He’s off to Dallas this week ahead of Tim Beckman’s team playing Louisiana Tech in the Heart of Dallas Bowl.
