TCR’s Twitter account, @Champaign_Room, (and Facebook page!) sends out a tweet with #IlliniPulse asking for your opinion on something every Monday night, and we post out the best answers in this article every Tuesday!
This week we asked for one sentence you would tell someone for why they should root for the Illini in 2017, and you guys answered! Here are some of the best responses!
Because this is the ground floor.

If you're ever going to root for our Fighting Illini , wouldn't your best bet be with a winner in Lovie Smith and a staff of 57 years— Matthew Roe (@Gz4874Matthew) August 15, 2017
In addition, Brad Underwood has done nothing, NOTHING BUT WIN!!!!— Matthew Roe (@Gz4874Matthew) August 15, 2017
