Poor Ficken; not only has he missed a bunch, but he gets 'em blocked today now too. I really think O'Brien went for the FG to try to inspire some confidence in Ficken. The refs ejecting the Illinois guy for the hit on Lehman in the end zone was pretty questionable as well.
I am quite the fan of the matte finish on the Illinois helmets, though.
Disappointed they didn't include the Diet Dew "Dale Call" ad just because it came between the final gun and the post-game show. That was the only one all night that made me laugh out loud, and I don't like NASCAR.
