The University at

a Glance

Since its founding in 1867, the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign has earned a reputation as an institution of international stature. Its distinguished faculty,

outstanding resources, breadth of

academic programs and research disciplines, and large and diverse student body constitute an educational

communitv

ideallv suited for scholarship and research.

Known

internationally for its achievements in research and graduate study, the University enrolls some 9,000 graduate and professional students in more than 100 disciplines, and attracts more than $184 million a year in private, state, and federal grants and contract appropriations. In recent vears, a significant amount of this support has been directed toward the creation and development of major centers for advanced research and study, including more than $100 million for the National Center for Supercomputing Applications and the Center for Supercomputing Research and Development. Together, these two centers have established the University as a recognized world leader in the fields of supercomputing architecture, design, and applications. In 1989, the University inaugurated

more than 4,000 courses in more than 150 fields of study. The

About 30 percent of the campus'

graduates choose to continue their education in graduate or professional schools. Typically, 90 percent of graduates who apply to law school are accepted; 78 percent are accepted to medical school. Academic resources on the

John Mackovic, Head Football Coach and Director of

Athletics.

Mackovic took over an Illinois team that was coming off back-to-back 4-7 and 3-7-1 seasons. During the past two years under his direction, Mackovic's Fighting Illini teams have recorded marks of 6-5-1 and 10-2. In each of those first two campaigns at Illinois, he was named the Dave McClain-Big Ten Coach of the Year, unprecedented in conference football history. Mackovic's overall record of 16-7-1 is tops among all active Big Ten coaches. Mackovic's 1989 Fighting Illini

team rated as one of the most exciting squads in school history. tied the school record for most

including wins over four teams which played in post-season Bowl games. Illinois' only two losses came against highly rated Colorado and Michigan. The Fighting Illini led several different categories in Big Ten team statistics, including No 1 in total defense and passing offense. A native of Barberton, Ohio, Mackovic attended Wake Forest, and was a starter at quarterback in a backfield that included his close friend, the late Brian Piccolo. Fol-

lowing his graduation from Wake Forest in 1965, Mackovic accepted a graduate assistant position with fellow Barberton-native Glenn "Bo" Schembechler at Miami of Ohio. After completing work on his master's degree in educational administration, Mackovic served one season as basketball coach at Fort Knox, Ky., with the Army. Mackovic returned to coaching football in 1968 when he took over the Army's plebe team. During the next eight seasons, he spent time as an assistant at San Jose State, Army (once again), and Arizona. In 1977, he joined Purdue's staff as offensive coordinator, where he was responsible for developing the skills of All-

and among the nation's top ten teams. As usual, the schedule is very challenging. In addition to the tough eight-game Big Ten schedule, Illinois is faced with the prospects of playing its season opener at Pac Ten power Arizona, then returning the next week to host national championship contender Colorado. The Fighting Illini play cross-state rival Southern Illinois in their third nonconference contest. It

difficult for Illinois to

improve upon its 10-2 overall record from a year ago, but Mackovic and his squad will not be satisfied with anything other than the Big Ten championship and a berth in the 1991 Rose Bowl.

OFFENSE QUARTERBACK:

With the departure of Jeff George to the professional ranks, one of the most impor-

quarterback position will be a key position, no matter who is playing. It will be difficult for anyone to play to the level that Jeff George did last season, but I'm encouraged bv the way our young quarterbacks progressed during the spring."

RUNNING BACKS: Most college teams would love

to have the problem that faces Illinois' Coach Mackovic at the running back position. The Fighting Illini might have the Big Ten's top all-around back in fullback Howard Griffith (5-11, 218, Sr.). Griffith

Mike

Bellamy, Steven Williams, Luke Petraitus and Dave Silva have all used up their eligibility. That quartet accounted for 104 total receptions a year ago, paced by firstteam All-Big Ten pick Bellamy who scored eight TDs among his 59 catches. Returning starter Shawn Wax (6-4, 174, Sr.), an All-Big Ten candidate in 1990, will be a primary target this season for Fighting Illini quarterbacks, having grabbed 26 passes for 465 yards and three TDs in '89. Dino Pollock (5-11, 197, Sr.)

Steven Mueller (5-9, 164, So.) and John Wright (6-0, 193, So.). None of the three had any catches last season, but all three shone brightly in 1990 spring drills. At tight end, the Fighting Illini have the best duo in the Big

Frank Hartley (6-3, 260, Sr.) and Jeff Finke (6-5, 223, Sr.). Hartley was a second-team All-Big Ten selection in '89, despite the fact that he had only catches for 125 yards and one TD. Finke had 14 receptions for 151 yards last season. Both have great hands and are outstanding blockers. Their back-ups at tight end include Dave Olson (6-3, 223, Fr.) and Kraig Koester (6-4, 231, Fr.). 1

MACKOVIC ON WIDE RECEIVERS: "Shawn Wax will definitely move up in the number of plays that he plays and the number of routes that we choreograph for him. We will continue to work hard with our passing game in preseason drills to

ALL-STAR CANDIDATES: Flanker Shawn Wax (All-Big Ten candidate) and tight end Frank Hartley (All-Big Ten candidate).

OFFENSIVE LINE: With

The Glasnost Bowl, originally scheduled between Illinois and Southern Cal for Sept. 2 in Moscow, USSR, instead became a nationally televised Labor Day season opener at the Coliseum in Los Angeles, Calif. USC, ranked firmly in everyone's preseason Top 5, had one of the top returning defenses in the nation with three returning AilAmericans. Illinois returned a veteran defense, but one that was still young and mostly untested. For three and one-half quarters the defenses slugged it out, neither letting the opposing offense get untracked. USC took a 13-0 lead on two Rodriguez field goals and a 37-yard TD run following a blocked punt by Marcus Hopkins. However, Illinois quarterback Jeff George would not be denied the heroics. The comeback started on a 53-yard pass play to Shawn Wax that first tipped off the hands of a Trojan defender before Wax took it in for the score. After forcing another Trojan punt, George took Illinois on a 10-plav, 80-yard drive that ended with a 20-yard touchdown pass to Steven Williams. An unbelievable finish before a national TV audience - but not the last.

what was labeled by the

media

as the biggest

game

at Colorado in a decade, the Buffaloes came out ready to stampede while the Fighting Illini could do nothing to stop the high-powered Colorado offense. Just about the only bright spot of the day was when Illinois tied the score at seven on a one-yard touchdown run by Howard Griffith. After that, it was all Colorado. The only team to effectively move the ball on Illinois all year, Colorado piled up 475 yards in total offense. This

despite 13 tackles for loss by the Illinois defense. After two straight tough road games, Illinois was looking to

After losing to a verytough Colorado team that would eventually go on to contend for the national championship, Illinois turned in what may be its finest defensive effort in many years. Against a rock-solid Fighting Illini defense, the Aggies could manage just three first downs, 65 net yards rushing and 17 yards passing for a total offense of 82 yards. On the other side of the ledger, Illinois ran up 507 yards of total offense, including 322 rushing yards. Although no Illinois rusher went over 100 yards on the day, four rushers finished with more than 64 yards. Ken Thomas led the attack with 77 yards,

followed by Wagner Lester, Howard Griffith and Shavers with 69, 67 and 64 yards, respectively. Illinois quarterback Jeff George attempted just 18 passes on the day, but completed 12 for 180 yards and two TDs. Illinois' top seven rushers averaged 8.2 yards per carry. The Illinois defense never allowed Utah State to get started on offense by allowing only one third down conversion out of 13 tries and three pass completions out Errol

of

1

8 attempts.

opening game of the Big Ten season, it was again the Illinois defense that controlled the opposition, and an explosive Illinois offense that provided the final margin. quarterback Jeff George stayed on the ground after a sack by Ohio State's Aaron Spellman, the Fighting Illini faithful had no idea how his replacement, Jason Verduzco, would react to the critical situation. Replacing George with nearly 10 minutes remaining in the first quarter, Verduzco completed nine of 14 passes for 126 yards and led the Fighting Illini to two first-half touchdown drives and a 14-3 lead. George returned in the second half to help Illinois score 24 more points and put the game away. Howard Griffith led the Illinois running attack with 117 yards, while George completed 12 of 20 passes for 130 yards. Illinois also used a little razzle-dazzle when wide receiver Steven Williams lofted a 34-yard touchdown pass to Mike Bellamy, who finished the game with 10 catches for 152 yards. Moe Gardner earned AP Midwest Defensive Player of the Week honors after being credited with nine tackles, including two Illinois

quarterback Jeff George returned to West Lafayette, where he started his college career before transferring to Illinois, and promptly led the Fighting Illini to an 80-vard TD drive on the first possession of the game. Illinois would pile up some more impressive numbers on offense with 421 yards of total offense, but penalties kept stalling Fighting Illini drives. The Illinois defense held the Boilermaker run-and-shoot offense to just 144 yards of total offense. The Fighting Illini couldn't breathe easy until the final minutes of the game when George led Illinois on an 80-yard TD drive, capped by seven consecutive carries by Howard Griffith which included a one-yard touchdown plunge.

A miracle. When a

team is having a great season, takes a miracle finish or two to turn a good season into a great season. The Spartans and Fighting Illini hooked up in a nationally televised (ESPN) defensive struggle on a crisp fall afternoon in East Lansing. After taking the opening kickoff and driving 75 yards for sometimes

the opening score, keyed by a 53-yard pass play from George to Mike Bellamy, the Illinois offense again

Jeff

to Mike Bellamy, the Illinois offense again sputtered and hoped its nationally ranked defense could keep them in the game. The Spartans returned the opening kickoff of the second half to the Illinois sevenyard line to set up a touchdown, and then moved the ball 91 yards on 16 plays to set up a 21-yard John Langloh field goal to give MSU a 10-7 lead with less than five minutes remaining in the game. Mike Bellamy returned the following kickoff 40 yards to give George & Co. good field position at the Illinois 40-yard line. Six plays later, with just 1:47 remaining, Illinois turned the ball over on downs. But the Illinois defense didn't quit. On the very next play, MSU's Hyland Hickson fumbled the ball to Illinois' Quintin Parker after being hit by Brian Williams. George wouldn't waste any time. Three passes later, he found Bellamy open in the end zone to cap the 35-yard drive and give Illinois a miracle-victory. Nose tackle Moe Gardner was named AP Defensive Player of the Week after registering 12 tackles, a quarterback sack and recovering one fumble, and George was named UPI Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week for his heroic effort.

For the second year in a row, Illinois and Michigan played each other for the inside track to the Big Ten Championship and a trip to the Rose Bowl. Both teams had nationally ranked defenses coming into the game, and it was expected to be a low-scoring, hard-hitting affair. Michigan's Tony Boles changed that complexion

on the second play from scrimmage by taking a hand-off from Michael Taylor and running 73 yards to the Illinois one-yard line. The Wolverines pushed the ball across the goal line on the very next play to stake an early 7-0 lead. Jeff George and the Fighting Illini came right back with an 85-yard drive of their own to knot the score at seven on a Howard Griffith three-yard dive. Back came the Wolverines. J.D. Carlson finished a grueling 16-play, 63yard drive that ate up 7:54 with a 47-yard field goal. Illinois countered with a Doug Higgins 25-yard field goal seconds into the second quarter to again tie the score. However, Michigan's Taylor was not through. He again led his team on an impressive 80-yard drive that was capped with his own two-yard dive into the end zone. The Illinois offense stumbled and couldn't score for the

remainder of the game against the tough Wolverine defense. A third-quarter goal line stand on fourth down took the heart out of the Fighting Illini before Boles finished the scoring with a 1 3-yard TD run late in the fourth quarter. For the day, George ended up with 253 yards passing on 22 completions out of 38 attempts. Wagner Lester was the lone bright spot in the Illinois rushing attack with 47 vards on just five carries. The Michigan key was 266 rushing yards to control the ball for nearly 10 more minutes than Illinois. The Fighting Illini no longer controlled their own Rose Bowl destiny.

After dropping a tough game to Michigan the week before, the Fighting Illini needed to regroup for the explosive Indiana Hoosiers and Heisman Trophy candi-

date Anthony Thompson. Before the day was through, 69 points would be scored. The Illinois offense, led by Jeff George's four first- half TD passes, put 28 points on the board in the first half to claim a 28-14 lead. George threw scoring strikes of 18 and 21 yards to Mike Bellamy, 38 yards to Shawn Wax and 30 yards to Steven Williams. Hoosier quarterback Dave Schnell threw a touchdown pass in the second quarter that broke a streak of 49 quarters in which the Fighting Illini had not allowed at TD pass by an opposing quarterback. The Hoosiers were still within striking distance until Bellamy returned the opening kickoff of the second half 89 yards to the Hoosier five-yard line where George threw his fifth TD pass of the day, again to Bellamy for his third score of the day. Thompson came back with a 20-yard TD jaunt that would make him the NCAA's all-time leading scorer to the score 35-21. Indiana got the ball back and was threatening to score again before a pass deflection by Romero Brice ended up in the hands of Brian Williams, who rambled 92 vards with the interception for a touchdown to finish the Fighting Illini scoring.

With a possible share of the Big Ten title, Illinois traveled to Evanston for the final game of the regular-season. A win would be the ninth of the year, a total that only five other Illinois teams had reached in 99 previous seasons of football. Three first-half interceptions by Illinois were converted into into touchdowns as Illinois scored 42 points in the first 30 minutes. Jeff George was spectacular, hitting on 15 of 18 passes for three touchdowns. Mike Bellamy opened the scoring by running a reverse 16 yards for a touchdown. After Wildcat quarterback Tim O'Brien to toss just the seconed TD pass by a quarterback in 52 quarters against the Illinois defense, George led UI to five straight touchdowns before the half. Illinois ended the day with 63 points, the most bv a Fighting Illini team since defeating Illinois-Normal, 79-6, in 1944. The total was the most points bv Illinois in a Big Ten game since defeating Northwestern 64-8, Nov. 21, 1908. For his efforts, George was named AP Midwest and UPI Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week. After the game, Paul Roddy, executive chairman of the Florida Citrus Sports Association, issued an invitation to the Illinois football team to play Virginia in the 44th Annual Florida Citrus Bowl, Jan. 1,1990.

Illinois entered the 1990s with a much-deserved Jan. 1Bowl game appearance against the explosive Virginia Cavaliers at the Florida Citrus Bowl. The match-up would be the Fighting Mini's eighth game on national television and the first appearance at a Jan. 1 Bowl other than the Rose Bowl. Illinois hadn't won a Bowl game

since the 1964 Rose Bowl, a streak of four games. The game started well for Illinois after Virginia's Marcus Wilson fumbled the opening kickoff from Chris Siambekos, which was recovered by Illinois' Bill Henkel at the Cavalier 26-yard line. It took Jeff George just five plays to put the fighting Mini on the scoreboard with a 15-yard scoring strike to Steven Williams in the end zone.

After an exchange of punts, Virginia quarterback Shawn Moore had the Cavaliers on the move to the Illinois 11yard line before linebacker Darrick Brownlow intercepted a pass in the end zone. In the second quarter, Moore tied the game with a 30-yard touchdown pass. George came right back by directing an 80-yard drive

The Pasadena natives had long forgotten their snow-covered homes in the east, and were anxious to showcase their beautiful California climate.

The parade was a line of floweradorned carriages, and the games consisted of foot races, tugs of war, and jousts among the local citizens. The foot races and tugs of war kept the townspeople's interest until around 1902. The suggestion then was made to invite two college football teams to compete in the post-season celebration. The two teams that played in college football's first intersectional post-

considered one of the greatest performances on a football field, Grange scored four touchdowns in the first 12 minutes of the game. He scored the first four times he touched the ball on runs of 95, 67, 36, and 44 yards and left the game before the end of the first quarter. Grange later returned to score a fifth time and also throw for a sixth touchdown. Grange piled up 276 vards of total offense in addition to 126 vards in kickoff returns as the Fighting Illini upset the favored Wolverines, 39-14. In his three years at Illinois, Grange rushed for 2,071 vards and still holds the all-time Illinois record for career touchdowns with 31. Also an excellent defensive player, Red intercepted 11 passes for an amazing average of 22.5 yards per return. Grange earned a reputation for the long touchdown run, as 11 of his 31 tallies came on gallops of 30 yards or more.

The Marching

Homecoming Homecoming,

a tradition

on

just

about every college campus in the United States, is celebrated with zest as graduates and former students return to renew fond college memories -- and it all began at the University of Illinois. The fall of 1990 marks the 80th year for the campus-

wide celebration which began the weekend of October 14-16, 1910. The "Homecoming" celebration was conceived in 1909 bv UI students C.F. (Dab) Williams and W. Elmer Ekblaw, members of the Shield and Trident senior society. The Shield and Trident society joined with another senior society, Phoenix, to organize the three-day event and submitted a petition to the

University Council of Administration asking the weekend to be set aside for the First Annual Fall Homecoming. Once the proposal was approved, the senior societies,
