Every Monday, The Champaign Room’s Twitter account, @Champaign_Room, sends out a tweet with an Illini-themed question, and you guys send us in answers.
With the local NFL team, the Chicago Bears, having started rookie QB Mitchell Trubisky on Monday night and getting droves of Bears fans excited about the team again, we decided to find out the Illini player that you have EVER been the MOST excited about.
Here are some of the best responses!
