There is a great football team in Illinois this year ... and it is not the Bears!

October 6 2007


Man, what a great two weeks of college football in the state of Illinois. Last week, the Fighting Illini beat Penn State. It was the first time in years that the Illini beat a ranked team. This week, the Illini beat Wisconsin 31-26, who were ranked #5 in the nation. The team played great. More importantly, they did not make any real mistakes. No interceptions, no fumbles ... just good football.

With what looks like crappy Bears team this year ... nice to see a team in the state playing good ball. I predict that the Illini will be ranked 21st come Monday morning.
