Don't forget, the first opportunity to see the 2011 Illini
in an extended scrimmage setting is Saturday at the annual scrimmage at Rantoul
Township High School. The event is free and starts at 6:30 p.m.
We've heard a lot of great responses about Episode 1 of the Camp Rantoul series, so be on the lookout for the second installment on Thursday. Creative specialist (and former wide receiver/holder) Frank Lenti has been hard at work on it the last few days and always does a great job with the series.
And in case you didn't hear, Mike Thomas was announced as the new athletic director at the University of Illinois today. He comes to Champaign-Urbana from the University of Cincinnati, where he has been the athletic director since 2005. It's great to have him on board and all of us look forward to working with him!
