Simon Cvijanovic’s rant against Illini, Tim Beckman continues Monday

Former Illinois offensive lineman Simon Cvijanovic aimed a barrage of tweets at Illinois football culture and coach Tim Beckman on Sunday, alleging abuse and neglect by the staff.

His comments prompted articles from ESPN and Deadspin, as well as a statement from the Illinois athletic department.

Cvijanovic’s stream-of-consciousness rant began around 4 p.m. Sunday and continued until well past midnight from his Twitter handle @IlliniSi. He picked up right he left off Monday morning, responding to those who both agreed and disagreed with him and continuing to call out Beckman.

Part of the conversation Monday was with former Illini offensive lineman Jack Cornell.

Cvijanovic is still going as of this writing, so this post will be updated.
