No trick: Illini are on the rebound
Illinois football has had rough times in recent years, but things might be looking up. The Illini are 3-1 in 2013, including a victory over high-powered Cincinnati. Ryan Lankford is a key reason for the turnaround, with 236 yards receiving, 52 yards rushing and two touchdowns. RedEye caught up with the senior receiver to discuss why the team is improving, why he loves trick plays and the unusual method he uses to unwind.
