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.
After their first conference loss of the season, the Illinois Fighting Illini find themselves playing another game under the prime time lights. This week, they host the #25 Wisconsin Badgers. The Badgers come to Champaign with a record of 4-2 and completely rolled the Northwestern Wildcats last week. Nathan Scheelhaase and company will be gearing up for this big time game and will look to give Tim Beckman his first Big Ten win since becoming the team’s head coach.
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.
