    I remember when Illinois wasn't a dumpster fire, and I remember this game because I was there as a student. Good times.

    I remember also when Illinois beat us five straight and six-of-seven from 1988-1994. So I have zero qualms about running up the score on these fucks, no matter how badly they may suck.

    Zurp I have misplaced my pants.

    I have no qualms about running up the score on ANYBODY. And I have no problem with Illinois beating Ohio State 5 straight times, or anything like that. If Ohio State doesn't want to lose 5 straight games, they should have played better on the field.

    There's not much you can do to make me hate your team. Maybe if your fans throw piss balloons at the opposing team's band, or if your head coach claims that he needs to look at a card to decide if he should go for the extra point or the two extra points. Or, of course, your most famous-est of head coaches whines to the media after his team tied, and a vote of all AD's in the conference says that your team should stay home for the holidays. And that's about all you have to hang your hat on.

    I was there for that game as a student too. Unfortunately I was also there for "the darkest day in Buckeye History" when we were manhandled in the 'Shoe by Indiana. There are a lot of fans who have been spoiled by the Tressel/Meyer era...

    I too witnessed the 10-31 Indiana embarrassment. The only saving grace for that season is a bunch of us booked the trip to Ann Arbor before it went to shit, and got rewarded with a surprising victory in Coach Bruce's final game.

    You're right about fans being a bit spoiled now. We lost at least 3 games every season during my college days.

    That was an entertaining video. Never knew that. When I think of Illinois, I think of TheKid and his Zook prognostications.

    That was one of the first games I took my younger brother to. We were the loudest people in the South Stands that day, which is saying something. That was one of the better crowds I've been a part of.

    Lovie Smith makes 5m a year and his record thus far is 11-28. His salary is higher than Ryan Day’s.

    at least I thought I read Day was 4.5
