Why does Illinois think they are an elite program. They had one of the best coaches ever in W. Angel and he could not do anything with that miserable program. I know D-3 programs who could beat UI in a duel meet,
You mean they had Tonja a world class program, Wayne was just OK. Turk has basically turned them into an ok Conference team(If that)
I'm pretty sure the Illinois men have won a Big Ten outdoor title under Turk. I don't think Tonja ever accomplished that as a head coach.
Wayne rode out Wieneke's last staff's recruits and then the bottom fell out. Turk picked up the pieces and built a team that won a Big Ten title.
