"Arch Rivalry" Thoughts

The 2008 college football season is underway, and despite the 0-1 start for the Illini, I'm optimistic. The team showed quite a bit of promise, along with their weak spots, in the season opener. My thoughts:

Overall, the game wasn't as close as hoped, but the Illini did make a legitimate comeback in the late 3rd and early 4th quarters, and the Tigers had reason to get nervous. Unfortunately, the tired D couldn't hold Daniels. But after tackling a really good team, the Illini should be able to gain confidence with Eastern Illinois and Lousiana-Lafayette the next two weeks.

Go Illini!
