@ jackO

If you don't already know then I wouldn't worry about it.

Illinois will find themselves in the top 25 by the end of the season, but they don't match up well with Mizzo at all. They are going to have to slow down the tempo and play some Big10 basketball to win this game. Hopefully McCamey and Davis show up tonight.

As a Mizzou Alum i have to say there is absolutely nothing on the line. Missouri is a biggest dump I have every been too. Also, I worked at Athena Night Club (google it) for 2 years and have a *unique* perspective of how the Mizzou B-Ball/football programs are run...If someone in Missouri ever attempted to make a disparaging remarks about my beloved Chicago, i would instantly put them in their place. Easiest thing in the world to do. Also, grew up across the street from Ryan Field, so go Wildcats! Mizzou was a dump! When people ask where i went to college i avoid the question...Also, I have great job now, but no thanks to Mizzou...

" "Sneak into the Top 25?" Criminey. That's what Illinois basketball has come to. "

Illinois is 10-1 on the year.

While they aren't going to be cutting down the nets in April, they have a pretty good team. They are not at the level of North Carolina, but they aren't at the level of UMASS either.

It looks like you are again openly rooting against the Illini and mocking every win. Why don't you get lost.
