The Univeristy of Illinois Fighting Illini are 4 - 0 !!!!

September 25 2011

For the first time in sixty years, the Fighting Illini of the University of Illinois have won 4 games without losing a game to start the season. That record brings rankings of #24 in the coaches poll and #22 in the AP poll. The last time that happened, the illini went 9 - 0 - 1 (a tie with Ohio State), won the Big Ten, won the Rose Bowl, and were considered National Champions by the media. While I don't think that the illini are headed New Orleans for the National Championship this year, I do think we have a special season upon us. Northwestern travels south this coming Saturday and let's hope the illini kick some major purple ass!
