Geez if there was a classic letdown spot it was today. Dominated 9.5 point favorite Purdue. I think they get to a bowl.

Same here. They actually played geat 2nd half against Michigan when they were down and could have won that game before the Wisconsin upset...
Lovie trying to get another extension.

A win at home next week against Rutgers will get Lovie's team to 5-4.

Then they need one win over their final three games: at MSU, at Iowa and home to Northwestern.

There are your 2 wins to get to 6., And the way Sparty has been playing this season that is a game they could win. Not likely but doubt anyone would be shocked if they did

I think 2 of those last 3 are winnable, but assuming they beat Rutgers, who nearly scored the listed total themselves yesterday, it may come down to Northwestern if the Illini find themselves in a 5-6 situation. After a competitive 35 minutes, Wisconsin got picked apart by OSU, ending virtually any chance of a national playoff appearance.

Broke Landers called Illinois Football a complete joke and to bet against them the rest of the year about 4 weeks ago.They have been lights out ever since. Black coach and all (Railturd)

Illinios's Lovie Smith saving his job while Missouri's Barry Odom trying to lose his.

Cale Garrett (out for season and college career with torn pec tendon against Troy) and Kelly Bryant injuries (Troy -- knee, Kentucky -- hamstring) not helping with injuries to the leaders on both sides of the ball. But, the team is spiraling.

Maybe the bye week will help, maybe.
