Illini open spring football with more wins in mind
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) Illinois coach Tim Beckman insists there is no shortage of pressure to take the team to a bowl game next season.
"We've got to be better, we've got to win more football games. There's no question about that," said Beckman, whose Illini went 4-8 last season.
"Is there pressure on me to get to a bowl game? Well, there is from myself," he added. "Has anybody told me (a bowl appearance is required)? No."
