Illinois Game


I love the lack of attention that Illinois gets over the last few years. Even though they always seem to play up to Wisconsin and the game is in their house, I can tell that no one cares a lick about Illinois. One article so far this week, and we're all perfectly happy to argue argue about Kohl Center banners or reminisce over a game against OSU in 2010 over even thinking about Illinois. Meanwhile, there are actually more images of Badgers on the front page of The Champaign Room than than there are Illini, at least down through articles spanning back to the weekend. As a resident of Chicago working with more than a few Illini alumni, I take great joy in this.
