Football Fans In Illinois, Time To Jump On the Illini Bandwagon
It's time to jump on the University of Illinois football bandwagon.
I want to start by saying, I've never been a huge University of Illinois Illini football fan. When I was in high school I remember having a Jack Trudeau jersey but that's as far as it goes. I think it's because their seasons are usually disappointing. Especially, for the past several years.
They brought in former Chicago Bears head coach, Lovie Smith, to run the program. It's been a struggle but things might be finally turning around.
According to wgntv.com,
"Illinois football has become bowl eligible for the first time under Lovie Smith following a remarkable win against Michigan State."
When you look at what's going on with the teams in Illinois, this is good news.
According to sportsmockery.com,
"Barring a miracle run by the Bears, it’ll be the first year/season since 2004 that none of the five major Chicago sports teams make the playoffs."
Fans need something to cheer about and this University of Illinois story is a good one.
Pull out those orange t-shirts and root for the Illini.
By the way, congratulations to all of my friends who are fans. The wait is finally paying off.
I believe in supporting local teams. I'm on the bandwagon, please join me.
