  • Imrem: Illini’s reverse relevance not good Oct 7, 2014 7:43 PM

Big Ten teams comprise six of the top 20 teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision in total defense, five of the top 20 in scoring defense and five of the top 25 in stopping the run and also interceptions.

     
  • Illinois hopes to extend Purdue’s struggles Oct 3, 2014 10:26 PM
    Illinois coach Tim Beckman was asked this week if Saturday’s game against Purdue is a must win. “Every game’s a must win,” Beckman said before quickly moving on. This one, though, may be more so than most for the Illini (3-2, 0-1 Big Ten). The Boilermakers (2-3, 0-1) are probably the most clearly beatable opponent still on the schedule for the Illini.

    Once again, the Big Ten is one of the best conferences in the country for volleyball. No. 16 Illinois is playing as well as any team right now, with four consecutive 3-0 sweeps on the books. The Illini welcome No. 6 Wisconsin into noisy Huff Hall on Saturday.

     
  • Big Ten West teams step up against East teams Oct 1, 2014 6:20 AM
    One of the prevailing notions heading into the season was that the Big Ten East could end up being a lot better than the West. It didn’t look that way last weekend. Though it was clearly a small sample size, Saturday’s performances were encouraging for a newly-created division fighting for respect.

     
  • Michigan State, Nebraska have gaudy offensive numbers Oct 1, 2014 6:28 AM

  • Illini to open Big Ten play in Nebraska Sep 26, 2014 4:06 PM
    Ameer Abdullah has the third-most rushing attempts in the nation and has touched the ball on one-third of Nebraska’s plays from scrimmage. He wants to continue with the heavy workload. That’s good for the 21st-ranked Cornhuskers (4-0) and bad for Illinois (3-1), which visits Memorial Stadium on Saturday.

  • Nebraska coach expecting surprises from Illinois Sep 22, 2014 5:42 PM
    Nebraska coach Bo Pelini and his players will prepare for Illinois this week with the understanding that some of what his defense sees in Saturday night’s Big Ten opener will not necessarily have been something they saw in film study. “They’re a little bit of a flavor-of-the-week type offense,” Pelini said Monday.

     
  • Illini QB struggles to open, finishes strong Sep 22, 2014 7:41 PM
    Through four games this season, Illinois has seen two very different Wes Lunts at quarterback. The first-half Lunt might leave Illini fans wondering what they’ve gotten in the transfer from Oklahoma State. The second-half version has three times rescued a team in danger of upset losses and pulled out wins, putting up some big numbers along the way.

     
  • Illinois survives Texas State scare 42-35 Sep 21, 2014 1:01 AM
    Trying to find a way to help Illinois hold onto a narrow lead Saturday, cornerback V'Angelo Bentley saw his opportunity in a fourth quarter pass thrown a little high. Bentley jumped in front the receiver, snatched the ball and headed 45 yards to the end zone, delivering relief for the Illini and a 42-35 weather-delayed win over Texas State. The head pats and hugs he got on the way to the sideline showed a degree of relief that's become all too familiar for Illinois. Three times this season, the Illini (3-1) have headed to the fourth quarter trailing at home. And three times they've found a way, some way, to win.

     
  • llinois looks for slow-start fix against Bobcats Sep 19, 2014 11:17 PM

  • Illinois loses point guard Abrams to ACL tear Sep 11, 2014 4:59 PM
    Illinois starting point guard Tracy Abrams is out for the season with an anterior cruciate ligament tear, coach Jon Groce confirmed Thursday. Abrams tore the ACL in his right knee during preseason practice. Surgery hasn’t yet been scheduled on the senior. “Tracy worked hard in the offseason to put himself in great position heading into his senior year, so he’s obviously disappointed and we are for him as well,” Groce said. “But Tracy personifies toughness; he has the heart of a champion and I know that he will only come back stronger from this experience when he returns to the court next year.”
