This is your game thread. Scroll down to the comments section to discuss Illinois vs. Northwestern with TCR's writers as well as other members of the community.

We don't take things all that seriously around here, and you probably shouldn't either. That being said--just because we don't take things seriously, that doesn't mean you can say whatever the hell you want. No hate speak. Not toward any fellow commenters or anybody in general. We're all here to have fun and enjoy the game.

We'll have a recap up shortly after the game concludes; all post-game discussion should take place there.
