When you're 2-10 in the last season, and 0-8 in conference play, perhaps it's best to downplay the actual football component of the football team.

I thought the description was a joke about the dodgeball and bowling...it was not a joke

So embarrassing it was removed by the user 5 minutes after 11W posted it.

Considering their lack of talent they're really getting pumped up...for a 4-8 season. Woo-hoo!!!!

That user, by the way, is the Illinois athletic department. They didn't remove it, per se. They just replaced it with a similar video that has hip-hop music.

I can't believe I ate the whole thing.

Well...yeah.  Shoulda kept it removed.

I'm gonna assume Nathan Scheelhaase hit absolutely nobody in that dodgeball game.

Whomever made this video did a half way decent job of putting makeup on the pig that was their football team last year.  That's what happens when your team has one highlight from the year before.

You should see the Minnesota pump-up video.

Video showing the same gifs over and over from practice?  The Illinois faithful must be over the top excited about the upcoming season now.

Whatever it takes to win.  Dodgeball & bowling.

Wonder what coach Marotti would say about all of that "conditioning" on the bowling alley.  We might post 50 on them, but at least they can bowl a better game than the rest of the B1G...

The Illini coaching staff has been hard at work this offseason...

Do you think the Illini roll on Shabbos?

I bet they don't even drive.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

Well after viewing that we should definitely complete the rare season sweep trifecta of football, dodge ball and bowling! Gonna be a good year for the bucks vs Illinois coming up! I can feel it!

I would absolutely not want to play them in dodgeball. And I play a serious amount of dodgeball.
