There are 38 States with 5 or more electoral votes.

Of those states, two have not had a school from their state play in either a BCS Bowl or a Final Four in the last 40 years.

New Mexico
Missouri.

I, along with many other KU fans, have admitted from day one that Mizzou got screwed and Kansas did nothing but benefit from it. Where you're wrong is the 'raping'... all Jayhawk fans have been saying for the last year is that Mizzou can't call Kansas a fraud because of an 8 point loss, and then turn around and say Mizzou is head and shoulders above Kansas.They can't have it both ways... regardless of who made it to a BCS bowl, Kansas was either a complete fraud and Mizzou was 8 points better than being a complete fraud, or Kansas was pretty good and Mizzou was better.

I'm completely comfortable saying that Kansas' biggest win in the last two years was against Mizzou last year, when it comes to the talent on the other side of the field. I don't think Mizzou fans are ready to accept that their biggest win in the last two years was Kansas last year. Outside of those two victories, neither team has accomplished a whole lot. I'm okay with saying that... are Mizzou fans?

I was hoping for a 8 win season plus another bowl.... we got 7 wins and we'll at least get into some CorporateSponsor.com bowl, which is fine with me since going to bowls isn't exactly an annual tradition at Kansas.

I'm thinking Mizzou fans are okay with just having a chance at a BCS bowl for the second year in a row, even though some were thinking about the NC game back in September.

So, no, I'm not annoyed... both teams have sort of a comfortable disappointment at this point, even though Mizzou has the chance to make up for it next weekend.

As far as the program is concerned, the Orange Bowl was obviously a much greater win than a regular season game this year.... but, I think this year's Mizzou team is more talented than last year's VTech team; which is why I said 'when it comes to the talent on the other side of the field'. It's hard to say since the two teams are so different, and maybe it's just because I've seen a lot more of Mizzou than VTech over the last couple of years...
