We chat with Matt from The Champaign Room to get a more detailed scouting report on Illinois right now, as well as the job security status of Tim Beckman, who Illinois fans would like as their coach, and program expectations. We also chat with SB Nation College Football Editor Jason Kirk about the College Football Playoffs, and perceptions of Ohio State and B1G football from somebody who isn't, you know, an Ohio State fan.
Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! when Scott brings on two cousins whose backyard adventure hit the big screen, Aaron and Chad Burns.
Aaron Burns graduated with his Masters of Business Administration from Oakland University in May of 2011. He served as the co-producer, production designer, score supervisor, and lead actor on Burns Family Studios' Pendragon: Sword of His Father. Aaron was recently married and lives with his wife Andrea in Lake Orion, MI.
Chad Burns is the award-winning director and co-producer of Burns Family Studios' first feature film, Pendragon: Sword of His Father. Chad completed his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Control Systems and Human Factors at the University of Illinois in the spring of 2011. Chad recently married Angie in August 2011 and lives in Champaign, IL.
These cousins have now created the Christian Hit, Beyond the Mask, an action-packed, Gospel-centered, historic, adventure film. It is set in the turbulent months leading up to the American Declaration for Independence.
The story explores identity and redemption through the lens of one central question: "What does it take for a man to remake his name and redeem his identity?" The assassin-turned-vicar, Will Reynolds, tries two classic approaches to fixing himself. First, he hides behind a mask of assumed identity. Second, he works to do enough good to outweigh his bad past. When both approaches fail, he discovers that only in Christ's finished work can he find his own redemption.

ME GRANDMA LOVED THE BARD OF ARMARGH, ME DAD LOVED THE IRISH SOLDIER BOY. ME UNCLE TOMMY LOVED SKIBBERINE. ME MA LIKED OLD SCOTCH MOTHER MINE. MY UNCLE JIMMY LIKED BOLD FENIAN MEN.

WHAT WOULD THE ANSWER BE? ALL THESE TERRORIST/REVOLUTIONARY GROUPS BUY RUSSIAN WEAPONS. WHY IS THAT? IS AMERICA TURNING INTO A BAD BIBLE STORY. DID YOU WATCH THE CRAPPIES?
How low can you go? This is what passes for muceus music today. If only strippers could sing. Who needs a red carpet for an animal parade?
The only thing missing at the end of the runway is a trough so we can slop the hogs. It looked more like a dry la leche contest. Wait till you see the udders on this cow.
You are on in one minute disconnect the milking machine. Here comes madonna doing her carnation condensed milk commercial.
Everybody got a trophy. Then they had a moment of silence for everyone who OD or went to jail this week.
