The right hire can have those schools lit. Illinois use to be the shyt
When tho? I can’t remember Illinois every being good for more than 1 year maybe. They had a fluke 2007 year where they beat OSU and made the rose bowl bc OSU was in the title game.
I do agree they could be good in the 8-10 win range while playing in the west.
Def more of a hoops school w/ a hoops following. Same with IU and PU
