Agree with all those that commented on the ugliness of the Illini fans. I can still hear the student, who clearly wasn't in this country when all the Bo/White hatred started, who ran up to me after the game and yelled "Michigan can suck my c***". Classy sorts, those folks are.
Thankfully Northwestern doesn't have any fans that care, because that 54-51 debacle would have gotten real ugly. Especially since they got some pretty bad calls in their favor, like that offsides onside kick near the end of the first half.

This collection is made all the more gut wrenching by reminding us that there was, until very recently, a reason to care. And you weren't alone in caring: sparty, the buckeyes and all the other Michigan haters (which is pretty much most everyone else) cared enough to give you grief. But you were Michigan and Michigan was still better than the crappy schools that most of them went to.
Now there have been a boatload of awful plays made in the Not-Careworthy era (which I attest started with Dennis Dixon's Harlem Globetrotters' appearance), but nobody calls anymore.
