Somebody in Vegas loves the Hawks. It must be the odds-makers. Check this out. Last week we go into Happy Valley as a 9pt dog. Penn State puts it on us. 28-7. Or was it 27-7? Something bad like that. So I'm thinking, this week when Illinois comes around the spread will be in the neighborhood of 10-12. Well, so far it's 41/2. Are you kidding me? Maybe Vegas knows something we don't. Or maybe nows the time to get to Vegas and drop a bundle on Illinois to cover the 4 1/2 and then some!
Speaking of Illinois, Ron Zook is doing a heck of a recruiting job there. He is getting the kind of athletes we used to get. They must be fired up in Illini country. Oh well, if the odds-makers think we have a chance, maybe we do. Who knows.
I'll still cheer 'em on and I hope you will too. That's what we do at Iowa!
