DAY IN COURT: Illinois starting quarterback Kurt Kittner pleaded guilty to driving under the influence Tuesday in traffic court before Associate Judge Michael Jones. Kittner was given 12 months conditional discharge, fined $250 and ordered to complete 100 hours of public service work. He also must abstain from alcohol and drugs.
License suspension is mandatory for a DUI conviction. The length of Kittner's suspension will be determined by the Secretary of State's Office.
It wasn't just seven stress fractures in one shin, and several more in the other. Headaches were also a problem.
"It's a family thing," Arias Davis said Monday.
An occasional fluke touchdown will happen.
You see them pop up on Sunday''s NFL reruns when a long pass caroms off a defender''s shoulder to a fortuitous receiver, or when a snaky kick returner leaves stunned tacklers in his wake.

In the wake of a 2-0 weekend, the Illinois volleyball team has moved up three spots to No. 20 in the latest USA Today/AVCA volleyball poll.
CHAMPAIGN – No more moving around for Tim Kish's "utility infielder."
During Illinois' football training camp, defensive coordinator Kish wanted to use Robert Franklin at several different positions. Middle linebacker one series. Outside linebacker the next.
CHAMPAIGN – Ron Turner didnt need to look at the tape of Saturdays game. He didnt need to be reminded.
But its his job, so Turner dutifully relived mistake after mistake after mistake.
Every game has a defining moment when the outcome is established. Here''s the play from Saturday''s Illinois-Iowa game:
Amy Bessette notched her third shutout of the season the easy way as the Illinois women's soccer team broke a two-game losing streak Sunday with a 3-0 victory over Valparaiso at the UI Soccer Complex.
The Illini (6-2) held Valpo shotless in the game.
Iowa 37, Illinois 14
CHAMPAIGN – They can't confirm it, but Iowa's Hawkeyes have heard the Illinois game used to be bigger than a bumper crop back home.
At least that's what their ancestors tell them.
