Mizzou's basketball team is currently ranked #25 in the country, and it's the first time we've been ranked in years. However, this game is really a make or break one for us, because many fans will jump right back off the bandwagon if we don't beat the hated Illini tonight.

We haven't beaten Illinois in the Braggin' Rights game since 1999 - an astonishing 8 game losing streak. However, under CMA the last two years, we've lost by a combined 4 points.

Let's get a win tonight! If not, let's at least tackle Chief Illiniwek!!!

Can't wait.
Going to Fox n Hound with a bunch of TCU alums to watch the Poinsettia Bowl, and had to make sure to go early to catch the beginning of the Mizzou game.

Mizzou Basketball hasn't been the same sit ole Stormin' Norman.

I happen to really like Mike Anderson though....I'm hoping he gets MU back to the days of Doug Smith/Anthony Peeler/John Brown/Al Eberhard/Willie Smith/Kim Anderson/Jim Kennedy/Nathan Buntin/Derrick Chievous/Lee Coward/Ricky Frazier/Jon Sunvold & Steve Stipanovich.

The best team MU's ever had was with Quin Snyder in 2002 and they shit their pants that season and finished 4th in the Big12.

They will never get back to that level.

Illini 78 MU 70

That team was better than when they went undefeated in the Big 8 in 94?

What about when they were ranked #1 with Anthony Peeler and Doug Smith?

What about the Stipo and Sunvold days?

You need to get up to date on your Mizzou history if you think the 02 team was our best ever.

Perimeter D needs to step it up a notch. We also need to land a few of those threes, or do better about offensive rebounding.

Mizzou looks like the worst offensive team in the whole conference tonight. Maybe Mike Anderson should have been telling his team that this game is pretty important rather than telling them that its "just another game."

There's a small chance that Illinois could magically go as cold in the 2nd as MU was during the 1st half, but there is no way that MU gets as hot as Illinois was. I agree with you.

I've got faith in 'em. I hate Missouri and everything it stands for but Coach Mike Anderson is leaps and bounds better than the other failures hired at Nebraska, Colorado and Iowa State. You know, the ones that were supposed to be "Solid long term hires" when compared to Frank Martin, the "desperation" hire.

You have to give MU some credit for hiring Anderson. The could have hired Huggins.

"Kansas coach Bill Self is in the house, a haunting and taunting presence considering all that's gone wrong for Missouri's basketball program since 1999. That's when Self lost out to Quin Snyder at the wire in the first coaching search conducted - some would say flubbed - by Missouri director of athletics Mike Alden. "
