Bears / Re: Go Bears

Mitch needs to learn touch...looks like he's trying to put a hole through every receiver's chest.  Had a pass in the 1st half that was an easy TD with 2 receivers in the back corner of the endzone and the DB's on the goal line, instead he bullets the ball and nearly gets the pass picked.

Mitch making some bad choices in the 1st half. That fg is on Nagy, going hurry up in the red zone with under 2 minutes left  :Wallbash:

once they stopped shooting themselves in the foot we had no answer on defense.

offense way too conservative in the 2nd half. we play east-west instead of north-south.

We're a 27.5 point dog for the game this Friday Night.
 
Might be a little on the light side.  We barely beat Kent State 31-24, having to hold on with Kent driving for the tying score.  PSU had no such issues with them, pounding them 63-10. Hate to see us embarrass ourselves on national tv.

Who knows, maybe we'll play way over our heads and make a game of it for a while.

Illini Football / Re: B1G sucks so far

B1G still sucks with Nebraska, Wisconsin, Maryland, and Rutgers, all losing in addition to Illinois. 
Rutgers really got pummeled by a non-descript Kansas team. It looks like Rutgers appears to be Illinois' best chance for a B1G win this season.

Lovie putting on display exactly why he failed in the nfl.  Hes plays not to lose instead of playing to win.  Drove me insane with the Bears and his team has played tentative the whole second half.  The whole clock management was atrocious on the last drive too another thing he still has no clue on.

We were lucky to win the 2 games against pitiful competition---and we had to struggle to do that.

I say we win 3 games this year.  We need to show Smith's hiring was not a huge mistake (might have been) by showing SOME improvement.  Going from 2-10 to 3-9 would do that.  Winning a B1G game this year is a must.

After 2 weeks and looking at the league's performance as a whole, I see our floor as 4 wins, ceiling of 7, and realistically thinking 5, maybe 6. 

Our possible wins: Rutgers, Purdue, Minnesota, Nebraska(slim), Northwestern

I'm not saying we will win 7, but these games are all winnable in the sense of we play our best game of the season against their worst.  All other games, I feel the opponent could come out with 9 guys and still beat us...

After watching Nebraska lose to Troy today, I think the slim chances have been upgraded to decent chance
