It's so damning, especially for the second game of the season. It should be a postmortem on a directional school but this was snapping defeat from the jaws of a B10 victory.

I was so heartened when BB went for it on fourth and goal from the one. Last year, he would have punted. No risk, no reward. We're Illinois football and we have to climb.

All of the enchancement went away when we threw out what got us the lead in the fourth: the defense. Umpteenth case fortifying "Prevent D prevents you from winning." To make things worse, our prevent D helps the IU QB go for 7-9 in the final drive. Their prevent D gets a sack.
