How frustrating has this been Illini fans? We watch big in-state recruits leave Illinois to go elsewhere.
Lovie has to do a good-to-great job at recruiting these in-state prospects. I don’t even think that the recruits even need to go here necessarily, but I do believe that Illinois should be in their Top 3 on signing day.
If the Illini want to compete well in the Big Ten, it starts in the state of Illinois.
A Good Recruiting Class for 2017 is Vital
When was the last time Illinois football had a recruiting class to be excited about?
It is hard to recall, and with the recruiting success of Illinois basketball, Lovie should be looking to bring in a solid class in 2017 and really try to get the entire fanbase fired up.
Lovie may not be a good recruiter or he could be an awesome recruiter, the jury is still out.
The recruiting class for 2017 will give fans a good idea of what’s to come. I really hope that Illinois lands some solid recruits and gets it going again.
Give Us Some Good Memories
I remember exactly where I was when Illinois knocked off No. 1 Ohio State Buckeyes. It was a surreal moment, and one I will never forget.
That is an example of something I want from the Lovie era of Illinois football.
Even if the teams he puts on the field are not challenging for a playoff spot, I want to remember some awesome wins when it is all said and done. Beat some teams you shouldn’t, and Illini fans will be pleased.
