Missouri vs. Illinois Game Notes

 

Interesting facts:

  • It says Chase Daniel was our first-ever Heisman Trophy finalist...what about Pitchin' Paul Christman?
  • Jerrell Jackson:  It's pronounced juh-RELL.  Will his son kneel before Zod?
  • De'Vion Moore:  It's pronounced Devin.  IT'S NOT SPELLED DEVIN!
  • Tremane Vaughns:  It's pronounced TRUE
  • Austin Wuebbels:  It's pronounced WEB-uls.
  • Missouri is 9-1 in its last 10 season openers, but apparently we opened the season last year against Western Michigan?
  • The last time that Mizzou defeated a ranked opponent in the season opner was in 1978, when unranked MU won a 3-0 game at #5 Notre Dame.  Nothing else significant happened that day.
  • Missouri is 14-8 under Gary Pinkel when playing as a ranked team, including 9-2 in 2007.
  • This marks the 4th straight game that Mizzou has played versus a ranked opponent, and they've all come on neutral fields.

Anyway, there's TONS of great info in here.  READ ON!
