Nebraska only had two players named to the preseason All-Big 12 team last year, so it certainly doesn't look like they thought they would be much improved.

Good thing the NFL doesn't work like that. The team you beat to advance to a playoff game advances past you even though they didn't rate playing in the playoff game in the first place.

I'm quite aware that Missouri should have alot better football team that Kansas this year. I still maintain that Missouri and Kansas were the two best teams in the country last year. KU lost one game to a high ranked opponent and beat another high ranked opponent in VA TECH. Missouri lost to a high ranked team twice. LSU lost to two unranked teams and almost lost twice more in overtime.

Are you suggesting the British didn't provide financial support to the Confederacy? They may not have had troops on the ground, but there was plenty of support. The Brits had a vested interest in making the Civil War a long and bloody one, and they were also dependant on southern cotton for their textile industries.

Doesn't really matter now, though. The South lost, the abolitionist movement succeeded, and Ken Burns makes good, if not a little flawed, documentaries.

If they had fired Crosgrove prior to last season and hadn't been decimated with injuries they may have won 6 games. But I'm glad things happened the way they did.
I'm also reasonably certain the all Big 12 team will look different at the end of the season. It always does.

Also which stadium is bigger Manhattan or Lawrence. I'd think a truer neutral place to play would be in Manhattan or possibly Lincoln.
Probably Lincoln since it holds 81,000

The recruiting class he put together for this past year was insane prior to the meltdown and subsequent firing. I know MU appreciated it as we got Gabbert and Hoch. You had other 4* linemen and a pretty solid back that left. One more year would have left the pantry full for the next coach. Now, well, not so much.

Because to be honest, I'm not sure if any of those guys would start on SC.....Will Moore likely would even though SC has great safeties but he's a great player outside of that, I don't see much there...

For an all conference D team it doesn't look very impressive.

I don't know about the players on that list, but I am guessing that by the end of the next season, the All Big 12 defense will have significantly better players than USC's defense. USC has a very good defense, so they could have two or three players that play better at their position then anyone in the Big 12, but not anymore then that.

Well SC probably has the best LB core and safety tandem in the nation so that isn't really fair to compare to that....but I'm expecting somewhere between 3-6 high draft picks off of the SC D for this coming year.

Honestly, more... IMO. I mean, let's be honest... they'd had more success overall.

I understand what you're saying. It's just that I live here.. and I think you're wrong. I don't think a game at Arrowhead in any way favors Mizzou. (Other than them giving up a home game last season... which we'll have to do this season.)

From what I understand, it's unlikely to continue anyway.

Neither school seems very fond of giving up that home game. Esp. KU after that loss last season. If they'd have won that game... damn... (not that I think they would have)

I still think a truly neutral field would be in Lincoln then. It seats 81,000+ now and still close enough to both schools.

seems too big a pain to go somewhere further from both schools. at least arrowhead is somewhat neutral (although norm stewart used to call KC 'lawrence east'), and located somewhat between the two schools. it's one of the better venues to watch a game at (I haven't been to one that's better), and I'd think it's a cool experience for the players to play in a pro stadium.

KU fans... what do you think?

Do you feel like Mizzou has a "home game" when playing at Arrowhead?

I don't get that at all.

I was at that game last season (an amazing season for both teams), and man... it was about as even as you could get.

I think it will go on for the time being anyway. For $$$ alone unless either Faurot of Memorial Stadium or both start expanding seating. Course that depends on whether or not both schools can keep winning on a consistant basis. The Huskers and Buffalo's will have a lot to say on that matter shortly. ;)

I'm an MU fan, but when I lived in the KC area I got the distinct impression that KC was for the most part a Jayhawk town. The local news stations all talked about kansas quite a bit and might have a blurp and the end of the sports segment about MU. In head to head, if KU won, they would talk and talk and talk about the game. If MU won, it got a brief mention then they moved on. I used to get miffed about it since most of the KC area was in Missouri.

Unless things have changed a lot in the last 10 years or so, I'd bet that Arrowhead holds more homefield advantage to KU than MU.

Id rather laugh at those of you who are still butthurt from our Orange Bowl awesomeness.

Really? Why do KU fans just think they outplayed the shit out of VT? Everyone knew there offense was atrocious. The only question people had about the game is how the offense would look against a good defense and they did not play well at all offensively. They put together one touchdown drive. VT's QB handed KU the game on a silver platter and that equates to "we beat the shit out of a 'BCS' team."

Are you suggesting the British didn't provide financial support to the Confederacy? They may not have had troops on the ground, but there was plenty of support. The Brits had a vested interest in making the Civil War a long and bloody one, and they were also dependant on southern cotton for their textile industries.

Doesn't really matter now, though. The South lost, the abolitionist movement succeeded, and Ken Burns makes good, if not a little flawed, documentaries.

Very little British aid made it past the Union blockade. What the South really needed was more men and industrial capability. They certainly didn't get those things from England.

Of course, I wasn't really talking North v. South. I was talking Missouri v. Kansas. And much like now, you didn't do too well against us one-on-one. But you were part of the winning dogpile.

If anyone had a "home field advantage" it would have been KU, only being 45 minutes away. Mizzou's student base would have had to travel 2+ hours.

We were both there. You know as well as I do that there was no advantage for either team during that game. The stadium was split right down the middle.

I love hearing the KU fans whine about "losing their home game." Like their puss schedule wasn't advantage enough. They had ONE tough game on a neutral field. WAAAAAAAAAA :deevee:

it's like the goddamn Broncos crying about the cooking spray not being slick enough.

Nope... looked 50/50 on tv. As far as access to tickets, I guess if Johnson County residents got first pick, that would be a slight edge for Mizzou. But, as far as school ticket sales and the general public, Lawrence is much closer.


It's still in Missouri. I would sort of equate it hypothetically to say.. Nebraska playing Iowa in a Border war game and it being played in Omaha.

Isn't the University of Iowa like 3 hours away? I was only in Omaha for about 6 months, but I think I ran into a grand total of 2 or 3 Hawkeye fans. As far as the Omaha reference, if anything I'd think it would be like Nebraska playing Creighton at the Qwest Center.

You're forgetting that the Quest Center IS Creighton's home court. :)

Yes, I meant Jackson County... they get first choice for Chiefs tickets, so I don't know if that means they get first choice for other games or if it's just season ticket holders in general. Regardless, it was about 50/50 last year and both teams give up a home game, so it doesn't matter.

We do pretty fair against you one-on-one... I think the series is pretty close historically. Last year just happened to be more memorable than most.

I don't think so. Its about as close to a neutral game site as you can get. Its in Mizzou but closer to the KU campus in a city where the street "State Line" just seems to intensify the rivalry. Heck, its pretty close to where the fought the battle of Westport in the Civil War.

I can see why you don't want to give up a home game, but I think the neutral site experience in a large stadium helped them in their preparation for the Orange Bowl. I think Arrowhead made out with only having to pay the schools a million each, but nobody was predicting what turned out for those schools that year. If they both enter this just in the Top 25, Arrowhead will have to offer a lot more to keep it there. If they enter both in the Top 10, I don't know that Arrowhead will be able to offer enough.

Speaking from a neutral point of view, Arrowhead's best chance of seeing the series continue there would be a KU victory. Reading the message boards, they already are not happy about the venue change last year, and I think two losses in a row would kill any potential to give up their game in 2009. Of course, Mizzou wasn't all that excited about the prospect before last season's game, so if they lose, they might not want to come back either! Either way, it'll take major payola to keep it there. I don't really care much since I don't live there any longer, but I imagine the opportunity to play in an NFL stadium, guaranteed if you come to either school, would be a good recruiting pitch to prospects.
