    missouri vs. illinois

    what happened here? I thought Illinois was going to dominate this game. They have all the makings of a Big 10 dark horse. A very good QB (Williams) and a very good WR (Benn). Also, Missouri lost a lot of players (other than SW) from an already **** poor defense. While Illinois wasn't expected to have a good defense, Missouri was without the triplets (Daniel, Maclin, Coffman)

    Being a Big Ten Darkhorse equals being a middle-of-the-pack Big Twelve North team.

    I don't think so. I think Mizzou is going to be better than they've been advertised.

    Bingo. Add in Isiah Williams, and that's what happens. The Illini could be looking at a 1-4 or 2-3 start in their first 5 games.

    Illinois is a Big Ten dark horse; they'll be in the top 4 or 5 for sure. What you saw was the just the way it is -- a middle-of-the-pack Big XII team is a lot better than a middle-of-the-pack Big 10 team. Big 10 football is MAC football played in bigger stadiums.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    This.

    Everyone has expected Mizzu will be way down this year. I expect they'll lose a bit, but I think they'll easily still be in contention for the Big 12 North title.

    Re: missouri vs. illinois

    I heard (before the game) that their new qb is a better pro prospect than Chase was.

    Illinois was not good lasy rear. They play in a weak conference. Also, Juice is overrated and Ron Zook is a terrible coach.

    I was surprised as well. Damn, maybe Missouri won't be that bad.

    Re: missouri vs. illinois

    Zook sucks as a coach... recruiter different story. But juice needs to be on the bench and the red shirt soph chryst needs to be the starter. and Benn only played one series also

    Re: missouri vs. illinois

    Everyone in Champaign is calling for Zook's head. I'll be surprised if he makes it past this year. They are unprepared in half of the games they play in. Its really embarrassing. The only reason why he has made it this is because he can recruit with the best of them.

    Mizzou looked pretty good and their new QB looked damn good too. They will be in the mix for the North again.
