Illinois QB's went 9-28 vs Sparty today, and they completed their last 3 passes attempted.
That is just god awful....and thats not even factoring in that MSU's secondary has been suspect this year.
It is almost unbelievable how much they have regressed under Zook the last couple of years.
regressed to a shockingly bad QB and McGee looked worse. Says alot about the coaching, which happens to be the main criticism of Zook.
Lets hope those same QBs show up when they play UM.
I think it was a bad move to have the new OC adapt to the players rather than the players adapt to him. It's not like they're any better off doing it that way. Just take the hit (like we did last year) and prepare for the future.
The Illini QB play has been shocking. Its amazing how poorly they have played.
The whole team is horrible. I expected Illinois to be a 5-3 Big 10 team and didn't buy into the Dark Horse prediction. But they will be lucky to go 3-5 in conference, and with Cinci at the end of the year... back to back 5-7 = Zook gone
Illinois looks like it's mailed it in for the year. I'll be disappointed if we don't win that one.
look absolutely pathetic. That game is a must win for UM, can't afford to lose to a team with no offense whatsoever.
The thing is that when Juice was at his best, he was a real dual-threat QB. Without Mendenhall on the pitch and a mediocre receiving group outside of Benn, you get a sense that Juice just drops back and looks to run. He's a bad QB, but this offense looks to be far less talented than some people expected.
