The Illini Have Another New Tradition

Yes, that headline is supposed to say that.

As I type this Tim Beckman is giving his first weekly press conference of the regular season and we'll likely be posting the video of it on the site later, but before we get to that there is one extremely important update we have to share with you.

The Illini have created a brand new tradition.

So, last year it was making the non-existent rivalry with Northwestern into a rivalry, and this year it's touching Red Grange Rock. And, well, considering how the game against Northwestern went last season I'm pretty sure all this means is that, before the season is over, at least one Illini player will be bludgeoned to death by Red Grange Rock.
