Illini Anxious Heading into Fall Practice

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - There is a lot of anxiety around the Illinois football program.

Players and coaches say they're all anxious to start playing and find out how much they've improved after a rough 2012.

Coach Tim Beckman's first season in Champaign ended with a 2-10 record and a lot of players battling injuries. But the changes in this season's team go beyond getting key players like quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase (SHEEL'-hows) back.

Bill Cubit was hired as offensive coordinator to improve on a Big Ten-worst attack.

Illinois opens Aug. 31 against Southern Illinois.
