Zook Gets The Hook; Hello D-Rose (and T.O. Too?)

Well, we were hoping the unthinkable wouldn’t happen but it did. The Illinois Fighting Illini football program completed one of it’s worst seasons in school history. They started the season 6-0 with high hopes and a lot of promise. But they finished the season 0-6, their worst losing streak since the 2006 season when they…

It’s Do or Die Time For Zook and Illini

On the final week of college football’s regular season, the Illinois Fighting Illini football team has their backs against the wall. The 2011 season began with promise. After winning the Texas Bowl to finish the 2010 season on a high note, the Illini kicked it into high gear in the offseason. When the 2011 spring…

Don’t Know What You Got (Til It’s Gone)

From  “bust” to “gamechanger”, “jerkface” to “savior”, “wuss” to “superhero”.  The winds of change blow swiftly ’round here. The title on your business card can change daily.  Ask Jay Cutler.  He’ll tell you:  Such is the life in the NFL, and certainly in America, and a sports-crazy town like Chicago.  It’s a total rollercoaster ride. …

Be The First One On Your Block To Name New Cubs Mgr

Right when we felt confident that we knew how to pronounce the name of the Chicago Cubs Manager Mike Quade (KWA-dee), they go out and find another dude with an even harder name to pronounce:  Dave SWAYM (spelled “Sveum”).  This completes (we think) the rebuilding of brass on the North Side after they raided the…

Joe Pa May Not Be The Last Big Ten Coach To Exit

Although he denied it in an interview yesterday, I think it is safe to say that Illinois Head Football Coach Ron Zook is on the hot seat. When asked about his job security Zook responded by saying “Now is not the time.” But he also said “I love the University Of Illinois and I want…

T.O. Show Gets Weirder; He Might Rush To Chi Afterall

In my first report on the former NFL Wide Receiver, I had mentioned that after he held his public workout a few weeks ago no NFL teams were interested. Owens is attempting a comeback to the NFL after injury plagued seasons in Buffalo in 2009 and Cincinnati in 2010. In April while recovering from meniscus…

The Illini Don’t Have Much Fight Left

After starting the season 6-0, the Illini have lost their last three games and find themselves in 3rd place in the Big Ten’s Leaders Division. The reason for this losing streak is poor play on offense. Illinois has only scored 28 total points during this losing streak, during the six victories Illinois averaged 30 points…

Does Chicago Reallly Want The “T.O. Show?”

Terrell Owens the 37 {soon to be 38} year old free-agent, controversial, arrogant, flashy, self-centered, superficial, reality star/wide receiver has been offered a contract by the Chicago Rush. T.O. {As he likes to be called} has been playing pro football since 1995. He started his elaborate career with the San Francisco 49ers, he has been…

Bye the Bye: Bears Rest Up (for Playoff Run?)

Wisely, the players in the Chicago Bears locker room avoided making the obvious connections on Sunday after an absolute dog of a 24-18 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Nostalgia, déjà vu, the phrase “remember last year?” None hold a place with this team. Yes, in 2010 the Bears entered the bye with a 4-3…
