Since I didn't see a thread. Figured this game deserves one since it is usually the first big game of our season.


Currently IU is on a bit of a run, but its not quite halfway through the first half.

Did you see that fricking block that MU did right at the start of the game ??? He had to have went half way up the backboard to slap it back off of it...

This MU team is sooooooooooooooooo far ahead of where it was at this time last year... Sure they haven't played any big games yet --- but they are looking good and hustling their butts off !!!

MU up now 25-24...

Yeah, from my unbiased perspective, Quin was a good recruiter but watching you guys play offense always wanted to make me throw a brick through the TV screen. Dribble, dribble, dribble, Kareem Rush chucks up a 23 foot fadeaway. Mike Anderson is probably a way better in-game coach. You'll still chuck up a lot of 3's but at least you'll look halfway organized out there.

I'm not real sure Quin even coached D, other than to just tell them to stand in front of the other guy. Arthur Johnson was a hell of a shot blocker, but I suspect that was more talent than coaching.

Yeah, I guess you will be much more intense on the defensive end too. The only bad thing about it is you'll probably be more prone to big comebacks, but then you'll be more likely to make big comebacks too... kinda like the Phoenix Suns. But it is fun to watch. I have zero rooting interest in Mizzou but watching you guys always made me want to go Hamas Jenkins on a coffee table.

Damn, if we hadn't seen our offense evaporate the last 3-4 minutes of the half, we might be up 7+ points.

I'll be honest... I expected this to be a pretty brutal season. Any success is just gravy, and so far so good.

I loved seeing how quickly Mizzou got Illinios frustrated... you could see it in their faces and body language. Seems the game plan is just to pester the shit out of the other guy until he screws up. :D

I'd read about it plenty, but it's more fun to watch.

Pruitt sucks...he played out of his mind tonight...he's not good.

Their best player, Randall, is hurt and wasn't playing. Warren Carter is also pretty good...

But Weber is a great coach of guards (as evidenced by the progression of Luther Head, Deron Williams and Dee Brown) and our guards are horrendous. Jamar Smith is horrible, Chester Frazier can't shoot, Calvin Brock is raw...

because I went to the U of I for two years...

Pruitt sucks...he played out of his mind tonight...he's not good.

Their best player, Randall, is hurt and wasn't playing. Warren Carter is also pretty good...

But Weber is a great coach of guards (as evidenced by the progression of Luther Head, Deron Williams and Dee Brown) and our guards are horrendous. Jamar Smith is horrible, Chester Frazier can't shoot, Calvin Brock is raw...

They play GREAT defense, but offensively, they simply aren't a good team.

Um, Randle played the entire game... he had several key offensive rebounds, just like he always does.

So what other reason would you laugh? Is it laughter to cover up the tears that Missouri has likely never had a player like OJ Mayo? Well atleast in the last 25 years anyway.

MU just looks like they lack players......there's no go to guy.We kinda knew that coming in... Most Mizzou fans are just excited to see the team playing their butts off. It's a welcome change. It may be a couple years before we're a force in the Big 12. I'm ok with that.

And there you go.........we'll still probably suck at basketball. I also do follow the teams around here so I do know about big 12 ball lol.
When only a thousand fans show up to your games, does it really matter?

OJ probably won't play a minute at USC.
