Fighting Illini encouraged with Jeff George Jr. at quarterback
CHAMPAIGN, Ill —
Jeff George Jr. made some mistakes in Saturday's 45-16 loss at Iowa. However, Head Coach Lovie Smith and Offensive Coordinator Garrick McGee remain confident he's the best choice at QB for now. Coaches say they want him to continue stretching the field, but cut down on the turnovers as Rutgers comes to town Saturday.
