I don' t know what polls you have been reading, but the two that most follow, ESPN/USA Today and AP, both have the Illini ranked fifth in the nation.

C'mon this thread is way misleading. There is only one true orange and blue. And they beat the seminoles on sturday.

If ESPN the magazine is underrating them, then everyone is. Illinois it the only "Orange and Blue." The universe it not bigger than cubfan13's world.

My reply was sarcasm, and what I meant was this: You said there "all 11th or 14th or whatever" but then admitted it was only ESPN the magazine that had them that low. You named the thread "orange and blue underated" like everyone would know you meant Illinois by that. (Savebykabi apparently thought at first you meant Florida, and I thought Syracuse). So you don't seem to gather that the world is bigger than Illinois, so we are not necessarily always going to get your regional references.

Also your spelling is atrocious and you sentence structure makes it hard to understand YOUR points, but that's for another day?
