Under the Tim Beckman and Bill Cubit regimes, Illini football has gone 10-2 versus FCS and FBS non power five conference teams. That’s the good news. The bad news? They’re 4-24 against the power five. In other words, Illini football is not a bonafide Big Ten program right now, and hasn’t been for a half-decade. We crunched the numbers like a Wall Street type trying to utilize the Black-Sholes investing model to maximize returns on his options.
The numbers are brutal, even when you include Ron Zook’s last season to do some positive window-dressing and cherry-picking.Follow paulmbanks
