Illini Gridders Start to Reap the Awards....

Look for this trend to continue for a long time coming as long as Zook is in town. It's been a long time since we had the Coach of The Year in the BIG-10, Offensive Player of The Year (Mendenhall), and Freshmen of The Year (Benn) - and all in the same season. I doubt that's ever happened before in Champaign. Combined, they're just another reminder just how special a year in was in 2007. Actually, Rashard is the first-ever offensive player of the year for Illinois. Benn follows in the footsteps of Simeon Rice (1992).

And look for Zook on the sidelines in the Hula Bowl College All-Star Game come January. He'll join Les Miles on the turf at Aloha Stadium. Just don't join him in the discussion for the Michigan opening. Les, it's all yours. Go get it!
