There was plenty of room for improvement on last season’s Fighting Illini football team.
National Signing Day kicked off early Wednesday morning and CSNChicago.com has coverage throughout the day from many of the top college football programs in the area.
It wasn’t the blowout it was in the first meeting this season between Illinois and Wisconsin, but just like that Jan. 8 matchup in Madison, the Badgers were simply the better team.
The last time Illinois squared off with Wisconsin, the Illini were blown out at the Kohl Center for their first loss of the Big Ten season.
Last year, the Illini went to the NCAA tournament. They even won a game in the Big Dance.
