Nah they'd have gone to a bowl game last year and Leach would have bolted immediately. They'd be in year one of the Jeff Tedford rebuild.



You still have to get the best available coach, but i agree he would pull a Bill Self.

Lovie is a great coach.

The jury is still out on whether he is a great college head coach.

I think he can be. I'm just not sure his heart is in it. If he sticks it out for next year, I think it could work. And it seems like he's staying.

I believe they started 16 Freshman this year. He's building his core on the Lovie system. Worked for the Bears.

I think the U is all in on Lovie. I don't sense much fan pressure.

If he doesn't come back, it's because he doesn't want to. And he may not. But, I think he is or he would have announced already.

Lovie will be fired by 2020 and go away forever, the more responsibly the guy tajes on, the more losses pile up.

Jay Glazer just said 13 or 14 coaches will be fired. Is Lovie going to find his way back into the NFL?

Down 3 coaches including an OC. Now his 2 QBs just quit. Rough offseason.

Never a HC in NFL again, you think winning 4 games a year in the weak half of the big 10 improves resume?

Good. Illinois has 2, maybe three QB's coming in this class, but there is only 1 on the roster currently. And only 1 that will be at Spring practice.

Lovie not speaking at the high school coaches clinic held at U of I in April. He runs that clinic worse than Beckman.
