I was providing further evidence that your original statement that Mizzou only sold out for the KU game was wrong.

Did you read your own boards after the MU game in Columbia?

I dont go on college boards because it is a lot of college kids and they arent very reasonable. The older KU fans who are alumni and what not will go after the players and Self, not the refs.

The game in Columbia was poorly officiated but a ref never decides a game. If you have a lead, you hold it. It's that simple and KU failed to do that like MU failed to do it.

And I was refuting that. You had empty seats all over the place last Tuesday.

Agreed. Exciting game, KU won.

I hope they and their fans enjoy being even more irrelevant than they already are when they jump to the SEC where, quite frankly, no one will give a damn about them.
You have issues.

MU doesn't "need" any other team period. Not KU, not KSU, not Texas.

News flash: If KU or KSU had the opportunity to jump from the Big 12 to a more stable conference that provided the potential for greater revenue, just like MU, Texas A&M, Nebraska and Colorado, they would have done it in a heartbeat.

KU is not fine in football, you just had to fire yet another coach. Of course, you were only talking about basketball I'm sure. I think we've learned how important basketball is when it comes to conference realignment.

All I know is that before MU made the move to the SEC official, I was very concerned about the stability of the Big 12, particularly since it was well-known that Texas has been studying its options the last several years ad OU's president said OU was studying its options as well.

So you're "fine" until one of two schools makes a move, then it all comes tumbling down like a house of cards.

They made a bad hire and they turned around and made a solid hire that suddenly put KU in the national spotlight.

You think KU dont or will not have options when that happens. The difference between KU and MU is that MU cannot keep their trap shut about business that goes on behind closed doors (i.e. Matt Painter, SEC) while KU can conduct things like a normal business and not let things out. Just because it has not been rumored that KU was heading anywhere doesnt mean they dont have options. KU's basketball program is the 3rd most profitable in the country. While it isnt football, that is still worth something (several million a year). Every round you advance into the tournament, you get a large chunk of change and every Big Monday appearance is another large chunk of change.

You had to rename your basketball venue due to a scandal and now your basketball coach is under investigation by the NCAA. Meanwhile, our coach just one his 8th straight Big 12 title.

Nothing is going to happen to the Big 12. I'm not worried about it at all, and you don't need to worry for us. The Big 12 isn't going to crumble. Even if it did, I think KU would have more options than MU did. The Big 10 didn't want you. You had to beg your way into the SEC. We have championships; you don't.

And you guys don't exactly excel in football. You have no championships in ANYTHING, so no reason to hold yourselves up as better than KU.

Hey MUTiger - Remember what happens when you roll in the mud with pigs!
or in this case low life scumbag jayhawks.

If they keep this up we will have to send some boys back to low-rents to burn down Allen field house. Now that would be a sight worth seeing!

In case you didn't get the memo, the Civil War is over. This is exactly the reason I am glad we are done playing you guys. Good luck at the bottom of the SEC!
