* If you’re too bummed to talk about football, you can always talk about other Illinois-centric topics. Have at it.

    Honestly I get very concerned about how early you wake up. Which I know is compounded by how late I stay up (since I work second shift). But are you getting enough sleep, Rich? I worry (banned punctuation).

    It’s a mom thing, I know. But I worry. I want you to stay healthy (banned punctuation).


  2. - Rich Miller - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 1:17 am:

    Thanks, but I’ve never been able to establish a set sleep schedule throughout my entire life. This job is perfect for me. lol


  3. - Suburban Mom - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 1:21 am:

    As I tell my kids, if you’re happy, I’m happy. And I’ve been working a shifted sleep schedule since I was 18 years old (and I love it). I just want to be sure you’re healthy and happy. If you’re good, I’m good. :)

    Both of my nigh school teams are undefeated


  5. - NonAFSCMEStateEmployeeFromChatham - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 4:50 am:

    Cards keep winning (as do the Sox) and the Cubs keep losing.


  6. - Blue Dog - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 6:57 am:

    What a beautiful weekend. The WineTrail was crazy busy.


  7. - illini - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 7:24 am:

    You’re right, Rich. I really do not want to talk about the Illinois and Purdue game, but what about those Cardinals. “Sweet 16″ - a streak that just keeps going, 11 wins in a row on the road and a 4 game sweep over my second favorite team, the Cubs. Life is good right now.


  8. - yinn - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 7:38 am:

    What a gorgeous weekend it was. And fwiw (and I have no idea what it’s worth) NIU beat Maine Saturday.


  9. - NonAFSCMEStateEmployeeFromChatham - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 7:49 am:

    How many games might the Bears win this year?


  10. - Flyin' Elvis'-Utah Chapter - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 7:52 am:

    Joe Montana couldn’t win with that O-line.

    Again, if you’re buying Bears tickets/merchandise, you’re a sucker.


  11. - Skeptic - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 8:01 am:

    “How many games might the Bears win this year?” That will depend on how many yards the defense gains.


  12. - Michelle Flaherty - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 8:08 am:

    Go Southern Go.
    That’s all the words I know.


  13. - Grandson of Man - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 8:10 am:

    This is about the time of the season when optimism for the Bears gets extinguished. But at least we’re not the Lions. Great historic field goal yesterday.


  14. - 62468 - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 8:11 am:

    Sheriff Dart vs IDOC? Will the administration address the prison transfer issue now?


  15. - Give Me A Break - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 8:38 am:

    It remains a mystery how a state the size of Illinois with a rich history of producing college and pro football players, can simply be so bad at producing winning football teams on the pro and college levels.


  16. - JoanP - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 8:58 am:

    Despite an emergency Zoom call Saturday morning, it was an absolutely gloriously splendiferous weekend.

    I spent it at the Hyde Park Jazz Festival, on which the weather gods smiled. It was so good to have it back.


  17. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 9:18 am:

    I dunno…

    Which is worse, Illini football or Bears football?

    It was fun watching the Cubs be swept while out of state. It was so bad, I had to watch it on the Cardinals feed. Total disaster, a failure, the Marquee Channel.


  18. - Amalia - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 10:20 am:

    watching the Bears one also notices other NFL scores, so at least the Bucs and the Patriots (the hate continues) both lost.


  19. - cermak_rd - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 10:29 am:

    It was a gorgeous weekend. I practically spent the whole thing outside. I followed the German election coverage, and noted some common pernicious customs (talking over one another without listening to what the other is saying). Someone needs to patent a gadget that simultaneously mutes a mic and sends an unpleasant electric jolt to the person overspeaking. The duration of the jolt could lengthen for each time this occurs. There are, apparently, at least two markets for this.


  20. - thisjustinagain - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 11:34 am:

    The Bears….*sigh*….are who we thought they were. And you can’t pin the loss on Justin Fields. Between blown coverages, missed tackles, and terrible blocking, it’s a wonder the score wasn’t worse.
    Nagy and Pace…..should be on the bubble for this mess.


  21. - Dotnonymous - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 12:28 pm:

    My sleep “schedule” is like yours, Rich…I had the perfect job for me…too.


  22. - Lt Guv - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 12:35 pm:

    NIU rolled Maine 41 14. Wasn’t pretty and against an FCS opponent, but the Huskies did what they needed to do. On to the conference schedule.


  23. - Amalia - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 2:27 pm:

    Not in Illinois but Illinois related, R Kelly guilty. I hope Jim DeRogatis is on tv or radio talking about this because he has been preaching the truth for years and getting hit on it often. Bless the women…often very young…who endured abuse and fought back.


  24. - filmmaker prof - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 3:12 pm:

    What else is there in life?


  25. - Dotnonymous - Monday, Sep 27, 21 @ 7:38 pm:

    Widespread Panic…thanks…I didn’t know.

    Listening to them now…immaculate…Maui OG.
