The Illinois student section is a sad sight (Photo)

Illinois has lost 19 consecutive Big Ten games, 13 of those with Tim Beckman at the helm. With the third-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes traveling to Champaign Saturday, it was a pretty sure bet that the streak would continue. The Illinois students certainly thought so.

In what appears to be one of those card stunts, this is just sad. The Illini actually put up a decent fight against the Buckeyes, before falling 60-35.

It’s unfortunate to see such a lack of student support at Memorial Stadium. At least it filled up a little bit though, because 10 minutes before kickoff, the student section looked like this.
