Don't know what an RSS reader is? Check out Google Reader. All it requires is a Google account (if you have Gmail then you already have a Google account). Still don't get it? Watch this video.
The next post will have all of the RSS feeds I've collected over the past few years. Some are specific to the Illini, some are just about college football or basketball, and some are just about sports in general. The hard part is wading through all of the unrelated and repeated stories to get to the stuff you want to read.
