Did you like the throwback uniforms from last Saturday's game?

If you liked them, then you can bid on them here. The bidding goes thru September 15th.

Personally, I thought the uniforms were awesome. I'm not a big fan of the modern Illini uniforms....they look like a cross between the Denver Broncos and Old New York Giants. (Bronco uniforms and Giants' helmets that is). And that makes for a big UGGGGG combined with a huge LEEEEEEEEE!!!

I'd be all for keeping the throwback uniforms, to be honest. They were really cool.

Side note: As of the posting of this message, the Juice #7 throwback Jersey was already bid up to $970.00. Wow! The Benn #9 jersey was at $610.00. A comparative steal, I guess.....#9 has much more upside than #7.

ESPN previews saturday's game against the Ragin' Cajuns

ESPN's preview of saturday's game has been posted. Click here to check it out.

The biggest takeaways from the article:

1. Illinois gave up over 200 yards rushing last week against Eastern Illinois

2. Louisiana-Lafayette had the 7th ranked rushing attack in the nation last year, and they have a star running back on the roster (Tyrell Fenroy)

3. The Cajuns play a ball control offense

Overall, this should be a good test for the Illinois defense, which so far has been the big question mark for the Illini in the first two games.

What do you think of it? Cool video.....not sure about the rhymes though.
