Seriously, what is there to say about this week's game? Illinois, while having a few moments above mediocrity this year, is not going to inspire words of wisdom. Having Tress at the helm calms me, because I KNOW he's got The Boys focused on the Illini.
I do have one point to make, and I haven't seen it anywhere yet this week.....
I think it's pretty cool that we are facing off against a former Ohio State Assistant Coach for the second week in a row. Illini Head Coach Ron Zook was a defensive coach here under Head Coach "He Who Shall Not Be Named" in the late 80s.
One last item of interest......
The videos I make. You know which ones I mean. I take the originals, make them high-quality, burn them onto DVD and broadcast them on 4 HUGE SCREENS at the restaurant I work for. I'm the Director Of Marketing, so this is a nice little tie-in to generate excitement. My restaurant is the ONLY place that plays these videos.
Wednesday, the Regional Manager came into town (we're a chain restaurant) and asked to see the videos. I showed him one. He asked me to make several copies of everything I have and get them to every restaurant in his region. They'll be shown before the Michigan game on the 18th (and before, if I can get all the copies made in time).
I had hoped I'd get a little recognition for those, outside of my own blog and YouTube. I guess that's happening now.
Copyright infringement must be the legacy I will leave behind.
Edit - By the way, I'll take Louisville tonight. WVA may feel underappreciated, but how do you think Louisville has felt watching all those ESPN commentators talking about WVA feeling underappreciated?
