Illinois coach Tim Beckman run over by referee, called for penalty (Video)

If there is another play that more properly represents Illinois’ failed season, I’d like to see it.

During Saturday’s Illinois-Northwestern game, Illini coach Tim Beckman was knocked over by a referee who was running down the sideline to follow the play following an interception. Beckman and the Illini were penalized 15 yards for referee interference, giving Northwestern the ball at the Illini 12. They scored two plays later to make it 17-7, and they went on to win the game 50-14.

Illinois finished the season 2-10, 0-8 in conference, and on a nine-game losing streak. And their coach can’t even stay out of the way of the officials. What a disaster.
