Great Day to be an Illini!

Today is a great day to be an Illini! I mean, what Illini was not rejoicing over the win over #1 Ohio State last night! Everyone that I have talked to is pumped about the game. So, several things are going through my mind right now:
  1. If the Illini continue to look as good as they did against Ohio State and Zook keeps recruiting the way he has been, the Illini could be a BCS-bowl contender in a few years. I think we are going to see some amazing games from the Illini in the future!
  2. Why, why, why did we lose that game to Iowa earlier this year? They are one of the worst teams in the Big 10. A win there could have made the standings in the Big 10 very interesting at this point.
  3. Trying to determine what bowl the Illini will be in this year is getting interesting. I'm thinking the Outback Bowl in Tampa, FL. But, we may have to wait to see how things turn out next weekend.
  4. Why, why, why did we watch the Illini on a non-HD channel?!? We broke down and got a new TV yesterday - a 40" HD TV. (Merry Christmas to each other!) It wasn't until after the Illini game that we figured out the HD channels where in the 900s. Ugh! But, we know better now!

Go Illini!
