"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

In reference to a comment about Threet that people "dislike him so much," I don't dislike Threet because I don't know him. But I do know that his performance last year bore no resemblence to a major college QB for more than a play or two at a time.
If Threet had simply been able to hit open recievers, UM would have gone 6-6 at the worst, and probably 8-4. It wouldn't have been enough to be a great team, but it would have saved the UM coaching staff and fanbase from a boatload of shit this year.
Threet couldn't hit open recievers and UM sucked last year. That is hardly a sterling resume going into this season.
Threet seems like a nice kid. I wish him a great life. Hopefully, he can have a nice football "career" quarterbacking at Adrian College.
But I truly hope to never, ever see him take another snap at UM unless he has taken a quantum leap in the offseason.
The problem is that accuracy usually is either instinctive or it isn't there. QB's can improve tons of things: release time, footwork, velocity, reading defenses; but they usually don't improve accuracy too much. Accuracy seems to be something a kid is either born with or not born with. It comes from the right side of the cerebrum. Usually, this is the hardest side of the brain to develop.
At any rate, I hope they get Robinson and he turns out to be a servicable QB for depth and an occasional change-of-pace series this year, and that Forcier stays healthy and has a good first year. Jeremy Gallon could do great with a wildcat series, too.
You hate to rely on freshmen at QB, but UM has done just that before and had it work out fine.
