** 2022 Opponent Previews : Illinois (Game 8) **

Recommended Posts

Illinois' defense seems built to stop the run. Their only loss was to really more of a passing team (Indiana).


Indiana had one WR with 156 yards & another with 109 in that game.


The key seems to be throwing on them.

Looking at the updated NCAA stats today and it is somewhat scary the defenses we'll be facing in the last 5 games, especially considering our struggles on the OL.


Points per game allowed.

  •   #1 Illinois - 8.86 ppg
  •   #3 Iowa - 9.83 ppg
  •   #4 Minnesota - 11.67 ppg

Was really disappointed by our tackling against Purdue. I hope we're really working on it with the extra prep time. Getting Reimers back should help. 


It was pretty atrocious. I do think some of it was being down Reimer, Henrich (although he tends to be iffy tackling), and Buford - plus Newsome didn't look 100%. Some solid schemed up things too - I think Jimari Butler has a bright future, but covering the RB one on one in the flat is a mismatch in favor of the RB. But regardless of who is in there it needs to get a lot better.
