    Illinois looking really good against Wisconsin. Another tough game for us to win

    Illinois intercepted and has the ball at midfield with the ball with 2:30 left needing a field goal to win.

    Think the Badgers might have been looking ahead to Ohio State next week?

    Illinois’ ball, trailing by two with less than two minutes left.

    Dark dark weekend for NU. Horrible against OSU and Illinois upsets Wisky.

    We may finish in last place in both major sports this year. Maybe should have spent all that donor money on supporting research.

    But I was cheering for Illinois! I actually like Lovie; I don't understand all the grief he gets here.

    The only positive is that they keep Lovie.

    He did not look good when he was hoisted on the shoulders. Great hair, but looks like he got the wind knocked out of him.


    In other news, technically, Wisconsin still hasn’t trailed during a game this season.

    I'm reminded of people saying the same thing about Zook, even though Zook beat Fitz a good share of the time.

    Illinois is showing signs of improvement this season, so it's a "good thing" that they'll keep Lovie. Maybe it's a "good thing" when Illinois beats NU this season.

    I have nothing against Lovie, just don't like Illinois.

    Lovie's got some playmakers on both sides of the ball, something NU is sorely lacking, and Peters is a showing himself as a veteran quarterback, making good decisions and some really nice throws. His transfers (I think he starts six) have really paid off.

    If Illinois plays like this they will blow us off the field. All of those transfers I think they have 7 that played makes a huge impact. Maybe that's something we should look more seriously into.

    Yeah I was rooting for Illinois/Lovie, like I would any of the B1G non-powers. WAY TO GO FIGHTING LOVIE’S!!

    Lovie is a decent guy. Most of the Fighting Lovie fans are Jag Bags.

    You seriously can’t think they have a good or even decent team? Don’t let NU’s ineptitude impair your analysis. They are not good.

    So what? That wasn’t the point I was making. Whether we are worse or not doesn’t make them good.

    Nope. Lovie figured out a way to beat Wisconsin as a 31 point dog. The real positive here is that we don't have to fear the return of mikewebb to tell us how terrible Illinois is.

    Yet you've said numerous times on here we will beat them. Still think that? I hope you're very right, but were awful. And they are not that bad.

    Every time I see teams celebrate by jumping on the pile, I get nervous for the poor guy on the bottom. I would hate that.

    They are definitely better this year and have some nice pieces now.

    Strangely, almost all of their best players are hurt or were lost during the game today. Thin team, zero depth.

    The bad news? UMass may be our second and only other win. Maybe.

    Really? I think your sample size might be inadequate.
