A Tuesday reminder that: 1) Illinois can appear out of nowhere for a shocking Rose Bowl season. 2) Rose Bowl patches are still the coolest of any Bowl Game. 3) Illinois used to wear a shade of orange that was tasteful instead of blinding. 4) Illinois has lost their last two Rose Bowls by a combined 94-26. 5) Despite that, Illinois is one of the few Big Ten squads with a winning record in the Rose Bowl (3-2).
