In St. Louis watching Mizzou take on Illinois in one of the top opening games of the season anywhere in college football. For fans of both teams, this is one of the most anticipated seasons in recent memory (probably ever for Mizzou). Mizzou is an across-the-board top 10 preseason pick that returns the bulk of the team that went 12-2 last year and crushed Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl. Illinois comes into the season ranked 20th, having loads of talent on both sides of the ball, and having been to the Rose Bowl.
We'll be sitting in the corner of one of the endzones down in the lower bowl of the Eddie. Look for me. I'll be the guy wearing gold!
I won't be taking my computer with me but I hope to post a recap of the game early next week. Until then, Go Tigers!
