Disappointment, Yet Hope
Well the Illini's great season has come to a disappointing end. There were a lot of silly turnovers and a disappointingly flat offense, but there were signs of hope for next season. Mendenhall will be back as will the Juice. Illinois wasn't picked to be a big player in the bowls this year, but not only did they earn a bowl appearance, thanks to their upset of Ohio they made it to the BCS Rose Bowl. What an accomplishment for a team that in the previous two seasons had only won 4 games. Hopefully next fall we will see an experience Illinois team take the Big Ten by storm!
