Game Thread: Illinois vs. Southern Illinois

The offseason is over.

It's time, ladies and gentlemen. The offseason is finally over. While the expectations for Illinois football may not be high, the simple fact is I'd rather be watching the Illini succeed or fail than wondering whether or not the Illini will succeed or fail.

And we start watching this morning as the Illini open the season against Southern Illinois. This might be one of the few Saturdays we get to celebrate this season, so let's enjoy this one while we can. Watch along with the rest of us and discuss what you see in the comments below.

I-L-L!

Time: 11am Central
TV: Big Ten Network, Chris Denari and J Leman
Line: Illinois -17.5
