    practice 8-22-13.JPGPost-Practice Interviews: Beckman | Barr | Cajuste

    Thursday was move-in day for thousands of University of Illinois students, but the Illini football team continued to prepare for its season-opener against Southern Illinois. With only nine days until kickoff, Illinois has fully moved into game-week style practices, fine-tuning its game plan for the Salukis.

    While UI students were moving into residence halls, the new section of Fourth Street from St. Mary's Road south to Windsor Road was opened. This should ease traffic back-ups around Memorial Stadium and State Farm Center in the future, and will help grow Research Park to the east and south of its current location along First Street.

    One item from earlier in the week that we hadn't mentioned yet in the blog was that Illini football games have a new home in St. Louis this fall, as 101.1 WXOS-FM, aka 101ESPN radio, will carry Illinois games and the weekly Tim Beckman Show. Get all the details here.
