    # 1 Ranked Illinois 10-0 vs Missouri Wed

    Illinois ranked Number one in the country heads to the Gateway to the West to play the Missouri Tigers in the annual "Braggin rights game"

    Last Year Illinois beat Missouri by a single point, but it was early and the Illini were still learning coach webers full motion offense.

    They say these type games are always close, The Carpet says NOT THIS YEAR..

    Illinois is playing great ball shooting a eye popping 54% from the field and averaging 22 assist a game, now thats unselfish play...

    The Illini are avg 84.3 pts a game and the DEFENSE is solid holding opponents to 62.6 pts a game. The Illini are winning by an average of 21.7 pts a game (that .7 is for the book)... This Illinois team loves to jump on you the first half, they will give it all to land a knockout punch early and often.

    Lets look at Missouri this year...

    This is a young team, not the Missouri we remembered 2 years ago ranked as high as 10th in the country...

    Missouri is averaging a meager 67 points a game and the defense is avg 64.The shooting percentage of Missou is a stagnant .397%.

    Missouri has lost this year to Arkansas by 10 (A team Illinois beat by 12 in Hog Land), they have also posted loses to Houston, Davidson and Creighton.

    Yesterday Mizzou came back from 18 down to beat Indiana, you can bet they will be tired....(Note to Self: Just how bad is Indiana?)

    Coach Snyder is 1-4 vs Illinois as a head coach at missouri, make that 1-5 after wed game.

    BACK TO ILLINOIS

    Coach Weber is trying to find ways to keep this team focused, last night he told his team that if we win by 25 that would be expected, they cruised to win by 40.


    My numbers are solid and show Illinois by 19

    Good Luck to all Carpet
