It's About Friggin' Time

Four, count 'em, FOUR references to Illinois athletics in major media sources today, three of which appeared (or will appear) on ESPN, aka, the Eastern Seaboard Promotional Network.

First, during PTI on ESPN, the hosts deigned to mention that Ron Zook is being considered for the football coaching job. Great match, in my opinion. I hope this rumor is true.

Second, during the same PTI, the hosts mentioned the Illinois/Wake Forest game tonight and even discussed Illinois' talent (a little bit. Not much, but it was something).

Third, the Illinois/Wake Forest basketball game is on ESPN tonight in about 45 minutes. What? ESPN covering an Illinois game?

Fourth, CNNSI has posted a few complimentary articles about the Illini, the most recent of which is linked right from the CNN homepage today.

Okay, dinner's early tonight in order to catch tipoff.
