Does anyone know where we can bet on this? I think Illinois winning a coin toss flipped by Andy Katz has to be the lock of the century.
He'll secretly switch the coin out to one of those trick double-headed ones and make sure the Illini call "heads". ;)

Is the bragging rights coin flip for 2020 only? If we win this year and play @ ILL, does that mean 2021 we will play away @ MIZ?

Just this year. COVID permitting, it'll be back in St. Louis next year.

Must beats include Tilman and Mark Smith in their last Braggin' Rights (unless they come back due to bizarre COVID rule about last season). Looks like Parker Braun earned a scholly for Mizzou this year. Let's crush him and Pickett too.

Coin Flip Show is live. Links-



Reminder that we have to get thru interviews with each coach, AD, Chancellor, & a player (Ayo & Tilmon) prior to the coin flip. Go Illini
 
       
It is Illinois AT Mizzou!!! It'll be even more fun to beat them AT their home ground!

Ugly loss to them last year. We were the better team

Would have preferred in Champaign. But another road game isn’t bad for NET ranking and for experience.

wouldn’t they naturally schedule the game the following year in Champaign? That would work to our benefit if there are fans at games that year.

Perhaps, but I imagine it's still preferred to hold it in St. Louis again ASAP, especially as our program stature increases again and we start hopefully drawing the major crowd and attention we used to. That even was so special. Hopefully it returns to that level again.

This schedule is not turning out favorably. Hopefully, this team can rise above it.

Playing the #1-ranked team in an early-season event, playing Duke on the road and playing Missouri in Columbia is not ideal

If we are the top 5 team we think we are, we should welcome the opportunity to be in the spotlight. My worry is a slow start to the season like we have seen in the past. We are going to need contributions early and often from freshmen. That also comes with the territory.

there is no fans....will factor in big time. We should go at least 2-1 in that stretch
