Post Illinois Thoughts

With a day to think about it, the defense looked better than I thought during the game last night and the offense looked worse. Penalties were abominable.

Northwestern had to hold off a late surge by Howard today, and the Cats were using a backup QB. Their defense had its moments, good and bad, the offense was inconsistent, too. Statistically the game was pretty close to even. It was a turnover-free game.

Both teams have next weekend off before the game in Lincoln.
