Heard what? All I see is "blah blah blah unsupported and unproven banter blah blah blah."

Wait until it happens. Then talk trash. Anything before the fact is just stupid.

Zook talking of big possibilities? It seems even he forgets one major problem, he can recruit like made but the guy simply can't coach.

You won by 6 points against our unproven, freshman quarterback. You by no means stomped our team. If that were the case, the deficit would have been much greater. Don't be a homer. It was a good game.

i was at that game. I wasn't a good game. If MU wouldn't of made a couple of mistakes, it would have been disasterous.

I won't book my tickets. I WILL tout the Illini as an improving team. You want to take that away, do so at your own folly. Zook got screwed at FL because he took a position that was doomed to begin with, following "THE" coach. He lost players and those who WON were his recruits. He never really had the chance to coach his own team.

The Illini are 3-1, after a loss to MU that, while deserved, gets an asterisk for loss of QB. I'd be interested to see what would have happened were the roles reversed.

Talk all the smack you want. We really don't care. We'll support our team regardless.

Okay, good one, what have you to say now? Do it. DO IT!

Let's see what your prognosticating gets us. You've been soooo correct to this point. Zook is rockin', dude. And he's STILL working with Turner's players. You want to support 'ole Ron?

Peace.

thanks for beating the #5 team and making the MU
Tigers look better. If you can beat them, just think how bad the Tigers would have beat them.

First off, even though I failed to quote him in, that message was intended for "good one." Secondly, read the rest of the forum. Your question is asked and answered.

In short, we have a young team of mixed recruiting heritage. Let Zook work his magic. I look forward to the next couple of years as ZOOK'S recruits take senior control of the team. Then we'll compare programs.

As for MU, I wish the team well. They are a good team and they are due for success. It is usually a competitive game that could go either way, especially in football and men's basketball. I look forward to our games. Tennis, anyone?

Peace.

Question was the wrong word. Assertion would be better.
