      Update your team wiki pages for a reward!

      If you go to the bottom of your team wiki page and open the "Eastern Michigan Eagles" navbox you can find a section called "NFL Players" where you can put that. You can find the correct formatting of the page if you look at other teams who have that page.

    6. The 2021 Orange Bowl marked the 100th game in Illinois history. The program has been around since 2014 and experienced both ends of the spectrum in terms of success in the last 8 seasons. Wins and losses, players and coaches came and left, but the work ethic of the members of the program, the will go get better every day, and the support of the fans has always stayed. With that attitude it was just a matter of time for the Illini to become successful. The 2021 team singing "Illinois Loyalty" after beating Purdue Now I don’t want to go through every season and every game of the last few years; read the history books if you’re interested in that. The point is: the program went from being one of the worst teams in the Big Ten to one of the best, won 31 games (including 3 bowls) in the past 3 seasons, ranked #1 in scoring defense in back-to-back years (with a top 5 ranking this year), and attracted some of the most talented athletes in the nation. Even though conference and national titles still elude Illinois I think we had a successful last few years here and I am grateful I had the chance to coach this team. Thank you Illinois Athletic Department for giving me the job and trusting me even when times were hard. Thank you my coaching stuff for what you’ve done for the program; I know you are not in the spotlight, but I can assure you that your work never went unnoticed. Thank you players for letting me coach you, teach you, push you, laugh and cry with you. Thank you Illini Nation for your relentless support throughout the years. A Special Thank You for a Special Coach Coach Cricket – if you’re reading this – I hope your retirement party goes well. You know when I arrived to the college ranks I was pretty clueless about coaching; I mean I loved football, but had no idea how to coach a college team. Yet, you took a chance on me. I could’ve gone to Navy, Syracuse, several MAC schools and things would have turned out very differently; there’s a decent chance I wouldn’t even be coaching now if you don’t offer me a coordinator position. During those few months we worked together you taught me many things about plays, formations, and coverages, but also about leadership, patience, and mental toughness. The insight you gave me into recruiting strategy helped me to build on your success on the trail instead of ruining your work. It is your last recruiting class that led the team to an Orange Bowl victory. You prepared me for this job, and so even when times were tough I endured. And look what lowly Illinois has become now: the 2-10 seasons are long past, and the sky is the limit. So thank you again, and I wish you happy retirement years. Enjoy life; you earned it. Coach Cricket and his staff in action (2016) Additionally, I would like to take the opportunity to announce that the Illinois Athletic Department has decided to honor Coach Cricket’s commitment to the program by introducing the Cricket Award. This award will go to a senior player who shows great leadership and great commitment to mentoring younger members of our football program. The first recipient of the award is our ILB Ian Irvin. Ian did his best this season to fill the void Jamal Harley left at the ILB position, and he was the glue that held a very young Illini front seven together. Congratulations Ian, you set a high standard for this award already. Dear Seniors You sillygooses thought I forgot about you didn’t you? Well I didn’t; and I never will. Most of you guys committed to Illinois just before I arrived, and now you’re all graduating (my goodness, where has the time gone?). You came here as boys, and you leave as men. And you also leave a lasting mark on this program. You were always a talented bunch you know...it was obvious since the first day of training I held as Head Coach. I always believed that you can raise the program to new heights. Even when we lost a bunch of games in the first two years and times were hard you kept me believing, you gave me hope, and so I kept on working. Seeing you lift that Orange Bowl trophy was a moment worth every minute of work I’ve put in since my arrival. I am so proud of you. The 2021 senior class Jamari, I know I was tough on you sometimes, but as quarterback you had to learn how to take criticism and take responsibility. You have improved so much in your senior year,and look at you, you’re Orange Bowl MVP now! I wish I could have you around for another season. Tyler, you called the shots on our defense and led us to greatness. You held our secondary together despite having to play with a different partner at safety every year; I am very fortunate that I had the chance to coach you. Logan, you were our jolly joker. I played you at CB,SS, even WR, and you never failed to deliver. You are now tied for most career interceptions in B1G history; go tear it up at the next level. Daveed, Demonte: you weren’t able to spend as much time here as the others, but boy do I wish you had. You are both the most skilled players at your respective positions Illinois ever had, and you will be mighty fine pros. Ian, I praised you already and I meant every word. Joel, Ousmane, Theodore, Isaiah: you have made the decision to end your playing careers even though you all have talent and experience. I have so much respect for you, and I’m sure you all will do great things in life. If any of you is considering a career in coaching, you know where my office is. It’s hard to say goodbye, but I know you have to go - that’s how life is -, so I’m not gonna keep you waiting any longer. Goodbye my boys, hope to see you soon again. Love you all, Coach Flutie

      2022 NFL Draft early entries

    9. I'd say FSU and Miami(FL). Both programs have good coaches, and they both pulled in some insane recruiting classes in the last 3 seasons. Based on the talent level these schools should be playoff contenders in a couple years.

      Anthony Bourdain.... Murdered?

    11. A minor, but much needed change imo. I think this update helps putting the actual 8 best teams in the playoffs.
