There are 60,670 seats at Memorial Stadium. Every home game, Illini faithful fill the stands to be part of the “home game” experience. They hi-five with fellow fans when it goes right and console each other when it goes wrong. For the rest of us not in attendance, we do it virtually. Here. Welcome to the Illinois Fighting Illini Live Game Thread.
Illinois looks to match their win total from a season ago as the team faces off against the Cincinnati Bearcats in week two. The Illini run game and defense are the focus points as both were less than stellar in the team’s week one victory over Southern Illinois. The Fighting Illini want to give Illini Nation something to cheer about, but Munchie Legaux and company from Cincy will be on the prowl to knock off Illinois on the road this week.
For those of us watching at home, we have the Live Thread. Discuss every play, in real time, as it happens with your favorite Writing Illini writers and fellow Illini fans.
If you can’t make it to the game in person, this is the place to be.
