· I have no idea. Illinois DIA has been airtight, complete with Mike Thomas giving Bob Asmussen the business at yesterday’s bowl presser. Kevin Sumlin went from having his pick of a smorgasbord of jobs to all of them but Texas A&M preemptively saying “Actually, nevermind.” Would anybody be surprised if he just stayed at Houston? Illinois isn’t even cracking the “carousel” segments on ESPN. Tomorrow is when a coach can legally be announced. The vacuum has left me partly thinking we could shock the world, partly thinking we’re going to completely drop the ball and hire Kirby Wilson. The mind wanders with no leads.
Unrelated – we might have a saucy basketball team. Too soon to tell. Really looking forward to the Mizzou game to get a more accurate picture, but at the very least, they’re composed. They withstood about three Gonzaga runs that would’ve melted any team we’ve had since 2006.
