Examining Illinois’ alternate “Gray Ghost” uniform

When I first saw the images of the gray uniforms Illinois will be wearing this weekend, I kind of hated them. Now that I have taken some time to read about them and let the images soak in a bit more, I still think they are ridiculous. Illinois will wear what they are calling their […]

Can Week 7 possibly match the drama of Week 6?
