    Funny thing is, EIU is definitely my second favorite university behind ISU. I go to all of their home games I can in football, basketball, and baseball (barring ISU playing at home or my work schedule interfering). In fact I plan on going to 3 of their other home games this season in football. I started following EIU when I was in middle school, so I've been a fan for a long time. However there really is no lost love for EIU when they play ISU. I was pretty bummed when they beat us last season, so hopefully we can get revenge this season.

    I'll be at the game and just to let everyone know I saw on Facebook (I follow EIU athletics) they are planning on having a white out, so I guess don't wear any white ISU shirts. Or maybe we can since I assume our team will be dressed in our white away jerseys. It's up to you. Just thought I'd let everyone know.

    My score prediction is that ISU wins 27-17.
    we have an intern that mentioned the "white out". he said (and i realize this may not be true) that eiu was going to be wearing all white. I think instead they may have new white helmets or something. they had gray helmets last week so i dont know

    Pagliai's is a pizza place that's pretty good and everybody here loves it. Its just west of the car dealership on the SW corner of IL-130/IL-16. Dirty's bar and grill is just to the east of Old Main(the castle looking building on IL-16). The Brickhouse is in the hotel on the west end of town on IL-16...same owner as dirty's a little nicer. WB's pub and grub is at the corner of 7th and Madison and Roc's Blackfront is on 6th and Madison (both places are within sight of the courthouse square north of campus. The original (but not original) Jimmy Johns is here.

    You can go to Mattoon, 10 miles west, for more options. everything you would go to there is with 1000ft of going under the interstate. BWW, Fujiyama sushi/hibachi, Alamo Steak house, Stadium Grill.

    Edit: When my wife and I go out to eat...we drive to Terre Haute.

    Curious, have any of the local Terre Haute publications noted the medical status of our QBs?

    Per the ISU/EIU game notes, Kilpatrick and Boyle are still 1 and 2 on the depth chart. Ace is really good about updating so it's a safe bet they're both ready to go.

    There was a wreck with pretty significant fire at the exit 3 overpass to West TH last night. I’m not sure of the status of the road there. It sill may be closed if you are coming that way. Might be worth checking an app or something. An alternative route is throught West T to Paris IL and taking IL RT 16 to charleston
