    Carpet - BiG Game for Illinois on New Year's Eve

    December 31, 2011
    Kraft Fight Hunger
    Illinois vs. UCLA

    San Francisco
    AT&T Park

    One of the great toilet bowls of all time. Both head coaches have been fired.

    It will be interesting who hires their head coach first. UCLA struck out on Boise State's Petersen - allegedly offered him 4 mil a year. I say allegedly, can't believe they would offer that amount.

    Yes it is Laxso, thanks for the post. Any bowl game is a big game for Illinois.

    This game should be called the "No Coaches Bowl".

    This Illini team as a whole is reeling from the firing of coach Zook.

    No one of the coaching staff has been approached with staying. There is talk that both the Defense and Offensive Coordinator will also be gone before the game even kicks off for a job.

    This is a very fluid situation at Illinois

    The Offensive Coordinator Petrino has left the Illini and will not be coaching the bowl game. Petrino is heading back to Arkansas.

    Illinois said that the QB coach will be calling the plays and there is doubt that he might not also be there for the game.

    What a mess
