Here's the inevitable "Ron Zook says things were going to be OK despite all evidence to the contrary" story that appeared in the Chicago Sun-Times. Why do reporters continue to waste column inches on this guy? Oh, I forgot, it's because they are lazy douchebags.
“I don’t want to get into why it happened and how it happened and all that stuff,’’ Zook said of the 0-6 slide. “For whatever reason, even when we were 6-0, it didn’t feel right. There were some rumblings going on before the season began. I knew when coach Guenther left there were going to be some issues.’’MoRon, I guarantee you that if you had gone 3-3 in the back half of the season that you'd still be peddling your bullshit at Illinois. But you're teams always cracked because they had no leadership.
It's amazing how delusional some people can be.
