Braggin' Rights... not goin' anywhere

ST. LOUIS - Illinois and Missouri have extended the Braggin' Rights basketball series through at least 2017, the schools announced today.

The game will remain at Scottrade Center. The longstanding series first began play in St. Louis in 1980 and has been played 31 times over the past 32 years. Illinois holds a 20-11 series advantage in St. Louis, although Missouri owns a three-game winning streak.

“I’ve heard about the importance of the Illinois-Missouri game since the day I took the job here at the University of Illinois,” first-year coach John Groce said.

Illinois and Missouri meet this season on Dec. 22 on ESPN2.

Isn't it a shame that the football series was a total flop for us..........or more accurately, that we were a total flop..................ratings be damned, people wanted to see that game at the end of the summer....what a shame that we were the weak link which caused the break

I would like to know if there is some secret formula to having a successful football season. I had high hopes but now i just would like to know from a professional football person, Is it the coaching or the players?
