I know that there have been some threads posted about Ron Zook already, but there are a few things that I would like to discuss about him on this board.
First of all, why does no one seem to be surprised or care the Illinois lost 27-7 to Minnesota, in a game in which Illinois had 18 offensive yards in the first half? How is it possible to end up only putting up 18 yards against Minnesota in the first half?
Also, in light of Minnesota's defensive annihilation of Illinois, do Brian's defensive annihilation muppets seem ill-advised? Does our victory over Illinois look a lot less impressive in retrospect? I would say that it does.
Did Illinois get worse as the season went on or was did the quality of competition just increase? Does having a head coach probably on the way out make a team play better or worse?
Why do people say that Zook is a good recruiter? Did he ever have any top 25 recruiting classes at Illinois?
Why has Illinois' offense turned into a tire fire? Their skill position players are not bad. Does their offensive line suck?
Lastly, the longest-serving B1G coach is Kirk Ferentz. After him, the longest-serving B1G coach is now Pat Fitzgerald, who started coaching in 2006. Is this kind of turnover normal in coaching, when the shelf-life of a coach is about the same as a player?
