Exceptionally well written.. Perhaps your best piece IMHO...

I don't know if BB can put all of that knowledge he has in theory to actual practice here at Illinois, but I agree that 'He gets it'... I'm glad that J.Whitman hired him and personally believe we have a better than 50/50 chance of finally succeeding in our choice of hiring the 'Right Guy' for football...

I think the fact that Barry chose him to take over speaks volumes. Frankly, I'm willing to discount his time at Arkansas as just a short term 'bad decision' that was never really a 'good fit'... I think BB understands B1G football and how to win here. Winning in the SEC is a totally different animal, IMHO...

Finally I want to highlight (and add to) one of your definitive lines here: 'But you're not going to hear me say "this is going to work" because, well, nothing has ever worked.' I would only add: ' ... in a long, LONG time'...

Once again I compliment you on perhaps your best post ! ! !
