Check out this video of the Green St. celebrations following Illinois' titanic upset of Ohio St.

Ahhh, here's a nice look back at very recent history. Wow, who would have figured that the Illinois upset would trigger a chain reaction in college football......one so big that Ohio St. is still in the hunt for the national title. Yep, if Oklahoma beats Mizzzou, there's a good chance Ohio St. will go to the BCS title game. And that would mean Illinois would likely go to the Rose Bowl. Otherwise, we'll probably play Florida in the Capital One Bowl down in Orlando.

Either way, who would have thunk it?

ESPN's Katz writes flattering article about Illini's Weber

Check out this article on ESPN.com. It is very complementary of Bruce Weber. He deserves some accolades. There's no cleaner coach in America.

Illinois basketball team looking past Hawaii and Arizona St. to Duke!!!!!!

What the heck! This Illinois basketball team is already looking past Hawaii and Az. St., and ahead to the Duke game. That's not good. After seeing the opening game of the season against Northeastern, the team looked very, very rough. There's no rotation, no fluidity. Poor shooting, poor passing, poor offensive motion. Not many bright spots during that game.

If Weber doesn't shake this team up, then they're going to lose to both Hawaii and Arizona St. It could be a long season.....and a REALLY long pre-season.

Illini shock the world, beat Ohio St. 28 - 21

Check out this Chicago Tribune column on how the Illini shocked the world on Saturday with their Titanic capsizing of Ohio St.

It truly was an amazing victory. First victory against a #1 team in 51 years. First time ever on the road to beat a #1. And it was Ohio St.

If Illinois beats Northwestern on Saturday at home, they'll be 9 -3, and that's just amazing. The experts are saying if that's the case, there's a good chance they'll play Florida in a New Year's Day bowlgame. That would be special.

Go Illini!
