Behind the Rails Episode 7: Illinois Preview

Kory Sheets and Travis discuss the Big Ten opener.

NCAA Football: Illinois at Rutgers Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Illinois week, and we’re a day late because of some technical issues on Wednesday, but we still have a new Behind the Rails for you. Starting the Big Ten season with a win is always important, and Purdue has a great opportunity to get a victory on Saturday as the struggling Fighting Illini come to town. In this edition of Behind the Rails Kory and I discuss:

  • The importance of Brian Brohm mixing up the offense to open things up.
  • How the defense has been impressive so far and what it needs to do against a struggling Illinois offensive line.
  • The importance of hidden yards gained or lost in special teams.
  • Kory’s favorite celebration spots after a win and how Lovshack was a lost institution as one of campus’ best night restaurants.

Yes, we need to mourn Lovshack. both of us really loved that place and it is missed greatly.
