Illinois camp preview: Is the defense better?

Tim Beckman made improvement from Year One to Year Two, going from 2-10 (0-8) to 4-8 (1-7). Can he build on that? The offense offers hope, as the hiring of coordinator Bill Cubit prior to last season sparked the attack. And the unit will be fortified by seven returning starters. The key to big improvement will hinge on the defense, which has nine starters back. How bad was it last year? The Fighting Illini ranked 104th in the nation in scoring defense (35.4 ppg); 116th in rush defense (238.6 ypg); 81st in pass defense (242.9 ypg) and 110th overall (481.5

Football Tour: Dienhart's best from Iowa

IOWA CITY, Iowa – We watched a physical and intense Iowa practice in blazing heat Tuesday. Quick tempo, a lot accomplished. Hopes are high in Iowa City, as Kirk Ferentz enters his 16th season on the job. There’s a lot to like, beginning with strong offensive and defensive lines. The Hawkeyes have six starters back on offense and five on defense. The offense needs to generate some big-play ability; it’s too often a plodding, pedestrian attack. Explosive plays are needed. Defensively, all eyes are on a linebacking corps that has three news starters. The secondary is being retooled, too, with
