Answer: awful. Minnesota gets a first and goal with about 90 seconds left, and he lets them run the clock down as they get the TD with 16 seconds left. So Zook has three timeouts and 16 seconds left in which to use them. Plus, they just lost to Minnesota. Let the schadenfreude ensue.
How bad a coach is Ron Zook?
As bad as Hope without his pornstar stache
He's better than Tim Brewster but worse than Danny Hope? Good Lord what does that mean?
>1 but also <1? Im so damn confused.
ZOMG THE LOLPHERS WON A GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!
is losing to michigan the kiss of death?
It's only right. It seems like we pretty much self-destructed after they beat us last year.
But the utter ineptitude of the Zookster will always shine through
He said he didn't want Michigan to beat them two weeks in a row.
That's exactly what happened.
X's and O's weren't great, but he did not have them mentally prepared.
There, but for the grace of God, go I. I shudder to think what would happen had it been 67-65 bad guys.
Zook can recruit. So he has that going for him. Which is nice.
Zook will be fired after the season. You can run and tell that!
I still think Illinois is going to win another game or two this year, so Zook should be back. He is not a good coach, but today was a team collapse.
It amazes me that coaches can't figure this out. Time on the clock is what matters. Tmeouts do not add time to the clock.
I think the coach with the most left over time outs at the end of the season gets an all expenses paid trip to the Les Miles School of Time Management.
must really screw with your head. Even if you are the Zooker.
Announcer just said Michigan beat Illinois 2 weeks in a row. Haha! Minnesota coach a stand up guy, so great win for him!
I agree that the Minnesota coach seems like a stand up guy. He gave all the credit to his players, and said that "they don't deserve what they got this season." He was on the verge of tears during the interview because he was so proud of his guys. I hope he gets a chance to hold onto the job for next season.
The media was all over Illinois'/Zook's jock up until last Saturday. 2 wins for us later (and 2 Zooker specials) and woo-hoo, WE'RE improving our bowl position while Illinois is hoping to find win #6.
Zook is bad, but as much as I want to put that loss on him, Minnesota played a great game so I give them credit. Hopefully they can find a decent coach.
Yeah i agree
the IL defense was tired in the 4th quarter today.........long game last week at Michigan, they gave up a couple of touchdowns late...........deciding not to use the timeouts by Zook doesn't help.
beat Illinois twice this year. Zook and RR probably had a difficult time getting both teams ready this week, after last week's fireworks. Zook is the same coach he was last week. I;m just glad Michigan won this week. Go Blue
PSU beating OSU. If that pans out, and Iowa lost to NWU... is MSU the B10 winner? Please Wisconsin...
(edited): Amendment - I think PSU can beat MSU for sure. Especially how they're playing against OSU. Really hoping they somehow drop it to Purdue AND PSU, cause they're all already chattering annoyingly about B10 Championship, even Dantonio.
If Zook told them not to let Michigan beat them twice, and they lost...and the announcer has said they lost to Michigan twice..
We're 8 and 3, 4 and 3 in the big ten!
Jan 1 bowl games like 8 game winners...right?
