Ron Zook is coming off an impressive Texas Bowl victory over Baylor and the 7-6 season has Orange Crush fans dreaming for bigger things. Zook has had his way for recruiting athletes at running back, defensive line and linebacker. Zook has had productive years when his signal caller plays well.
The last two BCS Bowl appearances the Illini made, they had two signal callers by the names of Juice Williams and Kurt Kittner leading them. Being able to to go up in the press box at Memorial Stadium they had Kurt Kitnner framed in the 2001 ESPN Magazine Cover. It just goes to show how much they love the success they have achieved and that Champaign really does love their sports.
