...My Dear Lord. We are the worst 5-0 team in the country. Our "defense" is terrible. I will grant that Sparty has some talent on the offensive side of the ball, but the fact that they ran the same 3 plays over and over and over and over, and were successful over and over and over and over does not bode well for the intelligence of our "defenders", nor for the coaching staff's ability to make adjustments (which, by the way, seemed to be a strength last year).
I agree with Mr. Man, the Illini should be favored because they may actually have an offense that is harder for our "defense" to handle. However, I do think that the coaches and press may be dumb enough to move us up rather than down in the polls.
Shouldn't I enjoy my team being 5-0 more than this? This sucks.
