Robert Rosenthal, writing at his site IlliniBoard, has put together his latest novella-length Illinois Football preview. It’s nearly 30,000 words about a college football team by someone who absolutely lives and breathes Illinois football with insight, speculation, hopes and dreams all wrapped up in a perfect package to read before the season starts next Saturday.
He is amazing.
Additionally, here’s video of the University of Illinois Athletic Director Josh Whitman taking members of the media through the brand new Henry Dale and Betty Smith Football Center. It’s also amazing.
