I don't recall saying that Lovie was on the hot seat. That said, I think Illinois is delusional if they think a new coach is going to fix their problems. One issue for them is that Lovie is maybe too old to ride long enough for him to build a long term bowl eligible program. IMO, that should be their goal. Consistently bowl eligible. Anything more than 6-7 wins for them would be gravy.I fear your bowl eligibility remark will fall along the lines of your thoughts weeks ago on Lovie Smith not being on the hot seat.
Frost will be lucky to win 4 games next year. I predict we will see some unfortunate transfers. The offense will still be disaster. And, the defense even though mediocre now...will take a step back after losing almost all of the leading tacklers.
