B1G Power Rankings

Illini are third in the latest Big Ten Power Rankings:

This is the problem when 43.2 percent of your field goal attempts are 3-pointers: When you miss, you lose. That's what happened Saturday in the Braggin' Rights game in St. Louis, when Illinois suffered its first loss of the season, 82-73 to Missouri.

Eamonn Brennan = major tool. And no it's not because of where he has us ranked(at least not all of it) but his reasoning for each team sounds like a 3rd grader trying to explain why he didn't do his homework to his teacher/parent.

"Indiana isn't perfect, they aren't going to go undefeated."

Well, considering they've already lost a game, this is very prophetic, Mr. Brennan.

Also...I'm tired of hearing "If Pressey makes half his shots, the game is a blowout" talk. Missouri got offensive rebounds and scored on 9 (9!!!) of his misses. Meaning if he'd made the shots, it would have just replaced the 2 points someone else scored. Do these morons watch or read about the games?

If DJ made half his shots the game might have been a blow out too. If the worst shooting player on the majority of the losing teams made half their misses, their team would probably win!
