Sad way to end the season with the disappointing outcomes in the last two games.

But we have to remember that the team was a pre-season pick for 7th place in the conference. They actually finished the year in 5th place.
I was thinking the same thing 712. That the preseason placed:

YSU 4th.... (finished 8th)
ISU 5th..... (finished 6th)
USD 6th.... (finished 7th)
WIU 7th.....(finished 5th)

We finished ahead of all three, and finished ahead of the two other Illinois MVFC schools (with bigger athletic budgets).

So this revelation and $1 will get you a cup of coffee at McDonald's. But, I think it is worth noting other teams have bigger wounds they are licking than us.

I know the team and coaches collectively shot themselves in the foot countless times in a season of "If only" or "what if" but to finish in the top half of one of the best conferences in D-I FCS is nothing to be ashamed of. When was the last time The University of Illinois finished in the top half of the B1G?
