The Sliding Illini

Recommended Posts

Think Husker fans are frustrated these days? Think about the poor old Fighting Illini.

 

For most teams, a ten win season is considered pretty good. How about if you have ten conference wins... in the last full SEVEN SEASONS like Illinois? In two of those seasons, the Illini did not win a single conference game. One year, they won one game.

 

In the past seven seasons, the Illini are 10 wins and 49 loses for a stunning conference winning percentage of 17 percent.

 

No, the not-so-fighting-Illini should not expect mercy from the Huskers. Games are won and lost on the field. But you know who should get some mercy? Any remaining fans of the Illinois football team... showing loyalty in the face of utter hopelessness.    

 

The Huskers still lack real good conference rivalry games since joining the Big 14. “Iowa” is no Oklahoma. Ohio State and Michigan as big opponents just haven’t clicked yet. Teams like Illinois need to get better so the Huskers can develop some great old Big 8-style rivals like they had in the glory days.

Have some people lost so much hope in the huskers that they think we should rival with teams like Illinois? This makes me laugh but at the same time makes me disappointed. I don’t know how to feel

Rather unsatisfying that this GIF ends too soon. (I believe the helmet lands perfectly back on the runner’s head.)

I propose a new term for this phenomenon: premature eGIFulation.
