Contrary to popular belief, there's more to Super Bowl XLI than one of the World's Greatest Quarterbacks, one of the Worst Quarterbacks Ever To Start A Championship Game, and two classy, history-making coaches.

Watch for the Illini connection tomorrow. On the Colts sidelines, defensive back Kelvin Hayden and wide receiver Aaron Moorehead both had notable careers at Illinios. Hayden will likely see more time on the field than usual, with starter Nick Harper questionable for the Colts.

Hayden on his time at Illinois: "I consider my time playing football at the University of Illinois as a great privilege. There are so many guys who play at the college football level who dream of the chance to play at the NFL, and I feel that the University of Illinois was a big reason that I am blessed to have that opportunity. ...The fans at Illinois are extremely loyal. At times when I was there, we didn't give them a lot to cheer for, but they were always there at the games and always making sure you knew they were behind you. ...It's awesome to be a part of the Illinois football family, and I really believe the Illini fans have a lot to look forward to."
Good stuff Kelvin, and good luck tomorrow.

For the Bears, former Illini football coach Ron Turner will call the attack from the booth. And, Ron Zook has coached several players who have a chance to get a ring, most notably QB Rex Grossman.

That said, I'm cheering for Chicago. Go Bears!
