Illinois football is struggling. But there's more to life than the sport itself. It's about playing the game.
Forget the election. The Illini are on.

Forget about focusing only on the games ahead. You know where you're going by where you've been.
Miscues and turnovers summed up the woes for the Illini against Penn State this past weekend.
Illinois stumbled Saturday night, mostly tripping over footballs that kept showing up at their feet.
