GameThread: Illinois vs. Washington

Time to put these dogs down.

Doug Pensinger

This is an important game for the Illini.

It's important because they're facing a marquee opponent and have a chance to improve to 3-0 on the season.

It's important because it's being played in Chicago, and there isn't anything better than the Illini going to Chicago and playing in front of a larger crowd than "Chicago's Big Ten Team" does in its own home games.

It's important because, a win in this game let's the rest of the country know that this team is for real.

So we might as well win the fucking thing.

Time: 5pm Central
TV: Big Ten Network, Eric Collins, J Leman, Evan Fitzgerald
