Why the slam on Illinois ?
Both teams came out of nowhere to have a great season last year.
Both teams have entertaining quarterbacks and can score a lot of points.
This year, Kansas played without stud CB Aqub Talib; Illinois was without Rashard Mendenhall.
Kansas did beat Missouri; who the hell did Illinois beat? The Illini lost to every decent opponent they played (Northwestern, Mizzou, tOSU, etc.)
