Fighting Illini are Easy

University of Illinois Fighting IlliniUgh.

I just watched my alma mater, the University of Illinois, get shut out by that college football powerhouse… Rutgers.

In last year’s game, Rutgers led by as many as 20 points midway through the third quarter before the Illini launched a comeback to tie the game with only 1:13 remaining in regulation. Illinois was able to hold Rutgers to a field goal in overtime and won it on a two-yard touchdown run.

Not this year.

Illinois was embarrased 33-0, giving up 311 yards to Rutgers while earning only 95 yards. In all fairness, the Rutgers offense looked like it has some good talent and size, but c’mon… 33-0?!? Gonna be another long season. When’s basketball start? :|
