U of I, the program where talent goes to die! To make an argument that U of I football has been anything other than a complete cluster is ridiculous. Any Big Ten program can point to NFL level talent but considering the flow of talent from U of I to ISU that has found success at ISU and beyond after not being able to contribute to a miserable program like U of I is only a further indictment of the wealth of riches U of I pisses away every year. Give me a break.

Looks like the James O’Shaughnessy revenge game will take place in New England next week.

Pats traded for Shag then cut him. Jags up big early.

Congrats to former ISU player and grad Mike Zimmer for making the NFC championship in exciting fashion today.

James had one catch for 19 yards yesterday.

I can't stand the Vikings but very happy for Zimmer. Lockport guy. Great coach.

Hasn't "played" yet. ;)

But hopefully, it'll work out. Good story.

He has to be considered for the CFL HOF.

He also recovered Pittsburgh's late onside kick.

Bears will not pick-up the 2018 option for guard Josh Sitton. This should only help Cam Lee as he tries to impress the new coaching staff in an effort to make the 53-man roster this August.

With Cam having tackle-length arms and with the Bears employing one of the most respected and highly thought-of O-Line coaches in Harry Hiestand, I wonder if Cam will get a look at RT in the off-season? For a guy like Cam the more positions he can play the better chance to stick.

Cam Lee might be one of those players, like the other Cam, that ends up being on the Bear roster for years and years just because of his versatility. I can see Lee being the reserve lineman of choice for the Bears next year.

It looks like the Bears are going to either spend big on a center (I expect Whitehair to go back to guard) and draft a tackle to protect their biggest asset.

Bears will be SPENDING here in the coming months. Expect a #1 WR pickup (Cam will hopefully bounce back from the knee and be the #2 again) and Jimmy Graham has been floated as a possible TE.

Cam Lee following in the footsteps of Mike Leidtke; Versatile OLinemen that teams love to have around. Cody White also was seen as a versatile player, great in the locker room and willing to do what was asked. Great to see a tradition growing, ISU = OLine U!?!

From the former coach department, some of you may know or remember Tucker Waugh, who was a Todd Berry assistant back in the day. He announced he is fighting Parkinson's disease.

Sad story about our former star and now ex-Va.Tech assistant Galen Scott:
Four months after his promotion to be Virginia Tech’s co-defensive coordinator, Galen Scott abruptly resigned Friday after accusations surfaced of an extramarital affair he had while traveling for his duties as a Hokies assistant coach.

Cameron Lee was waived today by the Bears. Too bad.

Hopefully he can find another team soon.

Yeah, when they drafted that monster center/guard from Iowa, writing was on the wall. I'm confident Lee will land somewhere.
