"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."
2010 football record
It dawned on me in the last day or two (after the Iowa game) that I would not be happy with anything less than an 8-4 this year for the regular season. At the beginning of the year, I was willing to accept 7-5 and then expect better things next year. Now, because it is becoming clearer how the teams in the Big Ten are shaking out, I want to see at least 8-4. If we ended up 8-4 we more than likely would beat Illinois, Purdue, and Penn State and then lose to OSU and Wisconsin. This, to me, would show progress in the Conference (4-4) and also an ability to beat the teams that are in the Conference that we "should" beat. I would not be happy with anything less. Just wondering what others out there would consider satifactory at this point.
