DE Will Davis:

Do you think a lot of people will say Illinois is for real?

"There's always doubt that happens every year. Coach talks all the time about getting respect. I mean we have it just not enough."

How has this team changed confidence wise?

"In our first game we knew we were good, but it took some games to see it. We're going into this season with a lot of confidence. With our depth it will help us in the 4th quarter not a lot of teams have that."
