Well, your two cents is completely wrong. KU went to multiple final fours and won a title in 88, so they did not exactly suck. Ask an MU fan about the best victories from that decade, and I am sure the name Lee Coward the Kansas Killer will come up.
The Border War never died or lost its luster when Norm was on the Mizzou bench.
