Illinois head coach Tim Beckman and coordinator Bill Cubit exchange some words

Bill Cubit, Tim Beckman, not exactly seeing eye to eye right ... on Twitpic

Illinois head coach Tim Beckman and offensive coordinator Bill Cubit got into a heated exchange following a disastrous play in Saturday's game against Ohio State. Trailing 35-21 late in the third quarter, Fighting Illini quarterback Reilly O'Toole fumbled in the end zone, which resulted in a safety. Things aren't going super great for Illinois lately: The Illini haven't won a Big Ten game since Oct. 8, 2011, and there was that target="_blank">whole Cliff Alexander decision on the basketball side of things.

It's hardly surprising for emotions to flare up a bit, but fans and players don't often see a head coach nearly come to blows with his offensive coordinator on the sideline. Naturally, the internet reacted.
