  1. LOL at the expense of Zook, but very true. From


    So strap in, Illini fans. You're probably not getting a change this season. Which is a shame, because you'll miss out on a few weeks with one of the best coaches in America. His name is Fired Ron Zook. Go back to 2004. Just five days after his firing, Zook nearly led the Gators to an upset of No. 7 Georgia. Later, Zook coached Florida to a 48-14 win against a good South Carolina team and stunned Florida State on the day the Seminoles christened Bobby Bowden Field.

    Once fired at Florida, Zook stopped doing all the things that got him fired. He stopped meddling in Charlie Strong's defense. He stopped tightening up at the end of games. He let it ride, and his team was better off for it.

    Given its talent level, Illinois could be dangerous with Fired Ron Zook at the helm. Unfortunately, unless Safe Ron Zook starts coaching like Fired Ron Zook, the next five weeks might last forever.
