Illinois is a program in need of a jump-start. The Illini enter this season having lost 14 straight Big Ten games, many of those in non-competitive fashion. But might there be some promise of better things? With Scheelhaase healthy for a full season the offense would improve upon its 17 PPG of last year, and the defense almost can't help but be better. If Illinois can take care of business in its non-conference games, split its Big Ten home games, and pull off one upset on the road, it could find itself back in a bowl. For the moment, that's the goal.
