    Re: Congrats to the Fighting Illini

    Like I said last week, I will say again this week.
    Congrats to the Illini on another victory.
    They looked pretty good today.

    Re: Congrats to the Fighting Illini

    The Illini are proof of how a good coach can turn a team around.
    Just a couple of years ago they were the doormats of the Big 10.
    Now they have Ron Zook and they are ranked in the top 20.
    I hope Brewster can turn the Gophers around like Zook did the Illini.
    Congrats to the Illini fans.
    It is a breath of fresh air for Big 10 fans everywhere.
    Darn, Iowa just scored a TD to go up 10-6.
    Beat Michigan and Ohio State.

    They had a chance to win before a terrible INT.

    Zook is a great recruiter don't get me wrong but.....After todays game i can see why Florida fired him. Two times they commited a pentalty on 3rd down and it could have been forth down he declined the penalty and they burnt us both times. Those were probably the two key moments of the game. His playcalling was not good today, he has been great all season tho. Iowa stopped the option pitch all game and basically shutdown Rashard Mendenhall. We are still a very young team and our QB's are inexpierenced,as evidence today. Juice Williams fumbled the ball in a critical point in the game, Zook benches him and puts in Eddie McGee who was doing great and he drove us all the way down the field and then throws a interception in the endzone on a horrible pass.

    Oh well we are still a very good young team, that was a big lose tho. Are only chance to win the Big 10 now is we have to beat both Michigan and Ohio St. which is going to be tough especially OSU on the road.

    Not good that they took a loss.
    They totally looked past Iowa.
    I like how you threw the Florida comment in there.


    If you want to win the Big Ten you have to beat OSU, and they have to take another loss.


    I don't think OSU will lose twice this year but it's possible.

    Re: Congrats to the Fighting Illini

    Yup, OSU finally lost.
    Like I have said many times here...I did not feel OSU would go undefeated.
    It is better to lose at the begining of the season as well.

    I did not see the game because I was too busy celebrating my footballs championship.
    I am really not to upset at all about OSU's loss because of our win today.

    Good job Ill, not easy to come
    into "The Shoe" and win.

    At least we will win the Big 10.
