Truly Beautiful

Watching the Illini victory over Wisconsin, the word that most often came to mind was "beautiful." And now that I've come down (slightly) from the orange euphoria that accompanied our first win over a top-5 team in decades, let me explain.

We have come a long way under Zook. There are many areas for improvement (punting, pass completions, turnovers -- we were lucky this week that potential fumbles slipped out of bounds), but looking at the Big Ten and our schedule, we are in good shape. Provided Zook's boys stay healthy and hungry for success, they can easily blow away my expectations for a .500 season. In fact, I'm already thinking about potential destinations for a post-Christmas vacation...
