MU Tigers Win Independence Bowl 2011 Crush UNC

Our MU Tigers continue to crush opponents who stand in their way. KU was crushed by MU effortlessly, ending the Border War series with MU ahead in total wins and will be locked in eternity proving that MU is the better team over 100 years of games vs the pathetic and weak KU Jayhawks. This weekend was the Independence Bowl featuring the star MU Tigers vs the lowly University of North Carolina. The Mizzou Tigers crushed North Carolina by a score of 41 - 24.

This game was over by halftime as UNC had no chance from the start. The Tigers took a huge lead in the game and continued to run effortlessly over UNC for the remainder of the Independence Bowl live on national TV for the whole country to see. It is clear that MU is going to be a dominating factor in the SEC after becoming bored with dominating KU and the other teams in the big 12 for so many years.

It was considered by most NCAA experts that MU got a shitty deal when it came to handing out the bowl games in 2011, but they did not complain, held their heads up high and went to the Independence Bowl and kicked some butt. Look for big things for the MU athletic department in the future, they are definitely the team to watch!

Mizzou Takes Border War from KU One Final Time

In the final Border War between the MU and KU football squads, it was no surprise that Mizzou was victorious over KU once again on a chilly Saturday afternoon on November 26th, 2011 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. The Missouri Tigers effortlessly trampled the Kansas Jayhawks in a 24-10 victory to forever seal the vault on the Border War with a total victory record of 56-55-9 over KU since the Border War games started on October 31st, 1891. The MU / KU Border War was the longest living rival in football history, and it ended abruptly with the Mizzou victory on Saturday.

The reason that the Border War will cease to exist in the future is due to the recent announcement by Mizzou that it would be leaving the Big 12 for the SEC effective July 1st, 2012. KU fans were extremely upset with the decision by MU to leave the Big 12, and the city of Kansas City will certainly lose revenue with the loss of the annual game that would usually fill Arrowhead Stadium to capacity. In 2011, attendance was only 47,000 due to an absolutely pathetic KU football team, who only won a couple of games during the season and were expected to lose in embarrassing fashion to the dominating MU football team. MU fans showed up in droves and filled in their side of the stadium as usual, but KU fans pouted and decided to stay home instead of attend the game and be ruthlessly taunted by MU fans.

In 2012, Mizzou will move up to a better league in the SEC, and face more suitable rivals as KU was unable to provide much competition, losing the Border War series overall in the span of over 100 years. One reason that the MU / KU rivalry was so intense is that most KU fans live in the city of Overland Park, Kansas which directly "borders" the city of Kansas City, Missouri. Many bars would fill up along the border of the state line that divides Kansas and Missouri, where MU fans and KU fans would talk smack and taunt each other during the border war games, which almost always ended in an MU victory. This final Border War game was a great game overall, and ended a century-long rivalry between the Missouri Tigers and the perpetually over matched KU Jayhawks.

Mizzou Leaving Big 12 for SEC July 1st 2012

After weeks of talk radio talk and rumors, it was finally announced today that Mizzou is leaving the Big 12 for the SEC on July 1st, 2012. There have been many speculations about the MU move, and fans have many different reactions to Missouri leaving the Big 12. Most of the more heated comments have been in reference to the MU - KU rivalry and what Mizzou's move to the SEC will do to that rivalry and the subsequent revenue losses that may occur in Kansas City and in Lawrence because of the MU move from the Big 12.

Kansas basketball head coach Bill Self was quoted today saying that "KU doesn't give a flip about whether or not KU plays Missouri" - and that is ok considering that the MU / KU rivalry really only exists in football, not basketball. KU is usually superior in basketball and usually loses severely to Mizzou in football every year. The Border War game at Arrowhead Stadium does not look like a possibility for 2012 as KU is trying to play down the MU move to the SEC as much as they can. In typical KU fashion, they are jealous that MU is getting more attention than they are, and they are making few if any comments about the future of the MU / KU rivalry that has existed since 1891, making it the longest living college rivalry in history. KU will maintain their history of putting black players on the basketball team but hoping that they don't sit next to them in the stands. Watch a KU basketball game on TV sometime and watch the home crowd at KU - all white people. The only black people at a home KU game are on the court. KU is so hypocritical and Anglo-Sax to the max. We really don't care what they think about Mizzou leaving the Big 12 for greener pastures anyway - they can just keep losing every football game just like they are doing now.

Mizzou, after leaving the Big 12 will face new rivals in the SEC, and a much more difficult schedule, with opponents in Alabama and Florida and other blue ribbon college teams. MU football has always produced pro players such as Jeremy Maclin so they will continue to do so in the SEC with no problem. The only financial loss that may come to the Kansas City area will be at the Sprint Center, but they are not based in Kansas City anyway, with all of their profits going to Maryland, home of Cordish who owns everything in the Power and Light District. It's just unfortunate that KU didn't just pick up their whole university and move it to Alaska somewhere - now THAT would have been a much better move. But, as Kansas City will find out next year, MU will continue to flourish and be a great new addition to the SEC, who officially welcomed them today.
