Enemy Of The 'States'

Since the 'Cuse loss, it's been a series of home wins over "State" schools -- Coppin, Kent and New Mexico.

The only impressive one of the three was Kent State -- a perennial mid-Major nuisance that took Illinois to overtime recently. Beating them at Allen is no big deal, but doing so by 27 points is a good sign. I saw a bit of this one online -- including this play.

Oh, and I did get to watch our brilliant football victory over Mizzou last week. Was that great or what? Eh? Mmm?

Still no big basketball games on the immediate horizon, but I think the future looks bright, especially with the imminent debut of Mario Little.

Next sacrificial lamb at the Fieldhouse? Jackson State.

  1. Love the headline, the recent success (including now Jackson State), and the 1st-ever back-to-back bowls in football . . .

    It's just that it's finals week and I'm swamped.

    Will try to get back on here soon.

    Thanks for keeping the flame burning, dgl.
