Haha!  The Sox 76 - 82? collared jerseys are fodder for riffs.  What a hoot!

msf, might the Illini actually have a good defense?   Yay Lovie.

It will be an even better D next year. Started two frosh DEs, 1 frosh Safety, 1 frosh CB on D. They will have problems in the strong Big 10 but give em another year or two and we will at least have a chance vs most of the other teams. Need a QB badly, Crouch is a gamer but a horrible arm.

What is impressive is all of the starters on D who are frosh, the 4 of them, were all just 2* recruits. Tells me this staff knows talent and the stars given by rivals or scout etc.... do not mean squat. I love that.

We are much too young to give you much of a game. QB is pretty bad for us too.

Well we have terrible coaching, and we are a non-5 team... so at best our recruits are the worst of yours.

I do think most teams are going to have issues with "Florida speed" esp in fl in early September.

Our defense is quick but young, start 4 frosh. I am sure you will be at least 7 point favorites. Illini are 2 years away. Lovie has recruited speed and hit Florida/Texas/California real hard. Starting to pay off now, got a couple real good ones of late. Plus they seem to get a lot of 2 and 3 star guys who are really pretty good. Good staff paying off in that regard. Recruiting not so easy for some of these NFL guys, heh.

Holy Moly, did I see USF is a 17 1/2 pt favorite over the Illini. Could happen, but Illini have a good D, we shall see.

Zebras were out of control last night, bad flowers showed up for the first half of the game. But a good win. USF has no strength of schedule this year. Illni is our toughest non conference game.

You guys might win the Big 10 if you were in it. Speed kills, and a veteran QB really kills.

We wouldn't come close to top 5 teams in big 10. Not to mention half our team wouldn't qualify academically... But they are fast...

Shoe, what went on between the parents of Ayo and THT? Sounds like quite the drama?

Someone please tell the NFL it isn't "Color Rush" if one of the teams is in all-white.    Most every week.

msf,

What is going on with Illini football's 2019 class?   Is it going to be as huge as some suggest?

Sounds like it may be. He replaced a couple of assistants, got the HS coach from StL, and the kids in StL love him. If they get Isaiah Williams, look out. That move allowed him to let Thad Ward recruit Chicago, things going better there, but might take him a year or two. Then they have that one WR asst who is getting really high rated kids from Dallas area. The DC is recruiting top schools in California to try and get a stud or two. They have several assts who recruit well in Florida, especially Tampa area. So they are hitting the right places.
