It's time for our yearly Busch Braggin' Rights game post. Last year, when we headed back to Illinois for the yearly Illinois-Missouri basketball matchup in St. Louis, we marveled at just how poorly coached Missouri was. Quin Snyder, who can still FIRE UP HIS TEAM with the best of them, was fired less than two months later; he spent the end of the Braggin' Rights game covered in popcorn. The new coach, Nolan Richardson disciple Mike Anderson, should survive the evening better than Snyder, and he could even continue the tradition of first-year coaches always winning the Braggin' Rights game. (The Illini have won the last six.)
