I don't understand why they hired him?
-Most coaches who don't come from one of the main six conferences usually have standout records like 10-2, 11-1, etc. when they leave.
-They went after Sumlin, but that was fine and smart since he has a very high win percentage at Houston.
-It's not like Beckman was ever close to sniffing a BCS game or had consistent years of high records such as the ones mentioned above. He was maybe, just maybe, a slightly above average coach in the MAC.
Illinois should pull the plug. I don't think Illinois can recruit right now, and Beckman isn't the guy to fix it. They need a notable coach to start getting quality recruits back or things will continue to look bleak for their program.
