    Has anyone checked to see if Hud is in his office? I hope he's not in Champaign already.

    Hud wants no part of that program.

    Offensive coordinator is taking over.

    "Beckman will not receive the $3.1 million remaining on the last two years of his original five-year contract or the $743,000 called for if his contract had been bought out."
    Ouch

    LOL my god some people need to learn to lighten up.


    So I can be on topic...Illinois is not a bad job. Fertile recruiting area and went to a rose bowl not that long ago. Plus they are in the western division of the big 10 which is a much easier slate than the east.

    Perfect timing for their admin. Fire him after losing to the necksters, they would have to pay him. Fire him for ALLEGEDLY covering up injuries, in a jury trial over his pay, the admin has the advantage from the jump.
