Every week The Champaign Room’s Twitter account, @Champaign_Room, sends out a tweet asking for your thoughts on something, a la a “Pulse of Illini Nation.”

Thank you to everyone who has followed this wild year of Illinois athletics with us so far, and we’re super thankful for y’all, too! Have a terrific Thanksgiving — just try not to talk about the Illini with anyone at the table!
