Quick mutterings

By Jeff Mayfield

[SEPT. 16, 2002]  The Cardinals did what they had to do, by taking two of the four against those pesky Astros. Hopefully, they will take care of business in the next several days and stave off Houston!

The Railers looked a bit sluggish versus Lanphier. The Lions have good overall team speed and quickness, and at times that seemed to be the difference between the two. We’re sure that we all hoped for a better showing, but we still have a good feeling about the possibilities for this team.

Lady Railers volleyball continues to roll!

The Chicago Bears held on for a 14-13 squeaker over the improved Atlanta Falcons. The Bears defense totally dominated the second half, and that was the difference!

•  •  •

The Illinois Fighting Illini finally got into the win column with a 59-7 drubbing of the Arkansas State Indians. The Indians started strong but faded fast. Illini QB Jon Beutjer, in his first start for the Illini, looked pretty good to us. However, the Orange and Blue will have to play a lot better to beat teams like Michigan and Ohio State. Heck, they could even find themselves in a dogfight with San Jose State!  Click here for Illini photos.
