That's Fine When You Have Ryan Mallett

Illinois offensive coordinator Paul Petrino doesn't like his QBs being 'game mangers.' 

"I hear other people say it, but I never tell our quarterback to 'manage the game.' I want him to be aggressive and WIN the game. Whatever it takes. I'm the offensive coordinator, and I'm not out to win with defense. As for staying healthy, the best way to avoid injuries is to play hard."
With redshirt Freshman Nathan Scheelhaase running the offense, that is a bit bigger gamble than what he was dealing with at Arkansas. 

I'll give Paul Petrino one thing, that is the kind of talk the Zooker loves to hear.  Kind of like Les Miles, with fewer national championships.  And no hat.
