NCAA football thread 2019-2020

Recommended Posts

Illinois DE Bobby Roundtree had spinal surgery after a swimming incident.  Sounds like he dove into too shallow water or something like that.  He's a class act kid, really, really hope he's ok.  Those injuries can be scary for his life much less football.

I have zero ill will towards Golden Gophers athletics, but if the P.J. Fleck era was a disaster, that would make me happy.

Illinois Normal travels to Northern Illinois for a 6:00 matchup between state super-powers. I will have my 4K IMax widescreen cloud broadcast ready for the neighborhood via ESPN Minus.

Should be a really good game.  

They are opening the tailgating lots 10 hours before kickoff. People may die.

Lovie Smith is a laughing stock and a disaster

He won’t survive then, it’s bowl game or bust in 19

This weekend is huge, which is amazing.  But knowing Illinois and our def against spread/RPOs we'll get slaughtered.

Yeah, I'd like to hope it was a breakthrough, but it was likely just Lovie matching up better with a simple run offense and a few careless mistakes by Wisconsin.

Nights like last night are when I miss HickoryHuskers. 
Just slightly though.

Well, they followed up well.  Take care of business vs Rutgers and we have a great shot at going bowling.  MSU, Iowa, NW are all vulnerable, should be able to get 1 out of those 3 if the D keeps playing like this.

Dont think beating iowa in kinnick is very realistic but should be favored vs nu/rutgers. Msu averaging 5 ppg in their last 3 games. Definitely beatable but they're a bit of a wild card.
