Well, I can see how Michigan fans wouldn't want to see Illinois again. The officiating might not be so friendly a second time.

That was some second half in Columbus today. Michigan was clearly the better team when it mattered the most. Just dominated the line of scrimmage down the stretch.

Neutral field?

True in our case. I assume he's referring to Michigan, especially the comment about officiating.

I agree. If we're thinking about the same penalty it was the one that wiped out an Illinois interception just before halftime. Bad call. Purdue scored a td a couple plays later. That was a big momentum shift that went against Illinois.

Durham got held with no call on a huge fourth down.

Illinois gets flagged a lot because they foul a lot. Really no one to blame but themselves.

About 80% of those bad calls have gone against us.

yeah but the thing is they finally called some for us, look at the past when NW
s DB's constantly held our guys and nothing was called. We were fortunate that day in some regards.

Mount Bielema still big mad


I can understand being salty about a judgement call that doesn't go your way, but cheese'n'crackers...

EVERY team benefits from bad/missed judgement calls, coach. And yes, that includes Illinois.

If you start looking for bad calls that benefit only ONE specific team while ignoring all others, soon you will be wearing a tin foil hat.

Losing to IU and MSU will put you in a tin foil hat.
