2 weeks until the unmasking

The thing I hate about college football is the dead period between the end of the regular season and the bowl games. We're now two weeks away from the unmasking of the biggest fraud in college football this year. Although I think USC is perennially overrated, the Illini are going to face their first really good opponent all season. I'd say that IIllinois' chances of winning are Slim to none, with Slim getting on the first train out of town. I think the Illini will be just be happy to be there. Zook, because he's Zook, won't be able to overcome that mentality in his players. Meanwhile the Trojans will be looking for redemption and trying to prove they got overlooked in the scramble to find a 2-loss team worthy of the BCS championship game.
