We operate in a world now where a win over Nebraska still results in your head coach getting fired

-Lovie Smith, whose Illinois team gave up 411 rushing yards to Northwestern in a 28-10 loss, also beat Nebraska, 41-23 this year. And yet, he was fired on Sunday, and no one is saying it was the wrong move

-How hard is it to believe that Nebraska is the worst team in the division? And possibly in the CONFERENCE? 3pm game at Rutgers on Friday will confirm more in that discussion.
