Ok, so we know that this Illini football team is light years ahead of last year’s Illini football team. In an utter DEMOLISHING of hapless Miami of Ohio, Illini football now surpassed their win total from all of last year. They’ll head to Nebraska 3-1, and nowhere near as big an underdog as you would expect entering this year.
Some fun halftime stats from this Illini football game: quarterback Nate Scheelhaase 256 yards, 5 TDsm 1 INT. He was extremely accurate, but missed a couple receivers on some overthrows. Then his stats would have been even more impressive. Still “everything’s coming up Scheelhaase” (CC Milhouse Van Houten) The Illini offense put up 394 yards and 36 points in just one half.
I told you on Thursday how abysmal the Miami Red Hawks are. Especially on offense. And they did not disappoint: 21 yards passing, 0 pts, 104 total yards in the first half.
So Illini football had a big day on defense, as well as offense.
Illini football had a balanced attack, as Scheelhaase...
