    ILLINOIS FOOTBALL FIRES COACH BECKMAN

    Illinois has fired Beckman just 8 days before the season opens.

    OC Bill Cubit will be named interim HC-I Like Cubit alot and this will be a positive for this team in the long run.

    They've been stuck in the mud for some time now.
    The bowl loss last year should have been the end for Timmy.

    You know truth be known I was a big backer of Coach Beckman-seemed to show all the right qualities with a shelf of great college contacts upon hire.

    Then the wheels came off-Hiring a coach from Toledo to coach in the BIG 10 was quite a stretch-And Tax Man saw that a mile away.

    6-24 in 30 big 10 games over 3 years just plain sucks no matter how you dice it and slice it-

    This AD at Illinois was looking for a reason to fire Beckman and he found it.

    Interim coach Bill Cubit hails from Western Michigan and is a mans mans football coach-He could really do some positive things.

    I see this game starting out as a game of jitters.

    Illinois falls behind by 7 at half and the entire fan base for Illinois nears collapse 30 minutes into the season.

    The second half opens and Cubit and company is starting to find it's stride-.

    Illinois 36- Kent State 19.

    The Line has dropped to Illinois -14
