  • The mood in Zookville?

    I guess we don't have a ton of Illinois fans that post here.

    I was curious if the opener Saturday vs. Rutgers is considered a "gimme" for Illinois or are fans thinking this year will be a work in progress? eg, will it be a complete disaster if Illinois loses on Saturday at home or tolerable given that you can't rebuild Rome in a day?

    Actually, everything I've read and heard tells me that Rutgers is a pretty good football team. They have a bunch of starters returning, so they will be a very good team.

    I think Illinois will be lucky to win 3 or 4 games this season. The defense is extremely young (2 or possibly 3 freshmen starters) and that usually translates to losses. I'm excited about the future of Illinois football, but this year will definitely be a work in progress.

      The line on that game is, what, one or two points?

        Illinois is favored by two points.

        And I don't know if Rutgers returning all their starters is actually a good thing for them.

          5 wins this year will be a great success with the defense Turner left Zook.

          I expect 4.

                Dear God, KBF here. I'd just like to say thanks, once again, for allowing Dusty Baker and I to live during the same time period. Every time I think he's given me his last gift -- overpitching Prior in the playoffs, getting cocky in Game 6 vs. the Angels, blowing another game for the Cubs -- he does something stupid like pitching to Albert Pujols. Thy will be done, baby!!!!!

                  They will win 3 games if they are lucky.

                  I bet their punter scores more than Glovey.

                        Yes, we do give the lad a hard time, but c'mon man, you deserve abuse if you post pictures like that of yourself on the interwebs and go by the nickname Squirrel. He brings most of it on himself. I think he likes the attention.
