Illinois football is the journey back and forth from being the team that hands someone a horrifyingly bad home loss to being the team that receives them. Neither position is fun.
Vomit. Honestly- it would be hard to script a more perfectly vintage Illini loss. Have a team down 10 and heading into the wind that’s been causing nightmares all day? No worries- take that wind out of play entirely by giving up a near-TD kickoff return, a 30 yard QB scramble and a screen pass for 14 points in 8:00. To Minnesota. Between Fresno State last year and Minnesota this year, we’ve got the groundwork laid for a new Senior Day tradition: losses that are so bad you can only laugh at them.
