It’s a time for a tune-up before the meat of the college football season kicks in – at least for most teams across the country.Lovie Smith and the Illinois Fighting Illini kicked off earlier Saturday afternoon against Kent State. Although it seemed like an easy contest on paper, the Illini are struggling.The Big Ten program is already down 17-3 late in the second quarter. Illinois’ offense has struggled to move the ball against the defensive front of the Golden Flashes.⚡️ TOUCHDOWN! Mike Carrigan dives across the goal line for a 28-yard TD! Point after good to make it 17-3, Golden Flashes! 3 minutes until halftime #FlashFAST #MACtion pic.twitter.com/T4bvCCyS1k— Kent State Athletics (@KentStAthletics) September 1, 2018It’s not a great start to the season for Lovie Smith and company. Smith was a common name that popped up on “hot seat” lists from around the college football media world entering the 2018 season.If the Illini can’t turn things around in the second half, the voices calling for Smith’s job won’t get any quieter.last_img
