I live in St. Louis and for me this is my superbowl. I cannot stand the obnoxious missery fans around here. Last years embarrassment better be brought up every single day this week. I know rivalry games are close, but there's no reason if we play like we did against Michigan and Maryland that we don't beat this clown team by 15.

Secretly - just between you and me- I think Illini will beat Miizzourah!

So it is written; so it shall be done.

Well the start has been bumpy, but its been several years since I was this confident heading into this game...

Who wins the matchup down low? Kofi or Tilmon? Tilmon seems a little longer but Kofi is . . . Kofi

If no foul trouble I would say Kofi. But... I am highly biased. 😏
Tilmons averages are much lower than Kofi but he is very efficient... 65%. I noticed mark smith is having a fine year so far..11+ pts and 5+ reb per game He shoots mostly from 3p....35%. I give Kofi the edge over Tilmon and I think we will need to keep pressure on Mark Smith. Illinois by 10.

Haven’t seen them play but Smith with .7 assists per game so assume he is not handling the ball much. Guess Clownzo also figured out he wasn’t a point guard.

Kofi or Tilmon
Tilmon will be a active issue for Kofi, wouldn't be surprised to see Giorgi on him as well time to time...overall Kofi stats will look better, mostly due to us having more team opportunities than Mizz will have.

Would not be surprised to see zone against Mizz, they are a very very very bad 3 pt shooting team. Outside the 2 Smith's the other guard/wings are horrendous.

If we play man-man, which we will for most part, Pinson is the KYP from 3 pt range. The kid is like 2-27 or something? I think Pinson and McKinney if he gets minutes will be dangerous against us...Pinson is a player, just out of control hectic type (hard to keep track of/contain), and McKinney well he is an active athlete period.
Tilmon will get his, the Smith combo might get 25 or so together with our defense...so with those main 3 players getting theirs somewhat, Mizz gets 63, ILLINI get 78.

Vegas line would probably be around 8 around game time.

78-63 ILLINI!
