The truth is....MU fans simply can't talk any shit...because they simply don't have anything to back it up with except multitudes of failure year after year.
Even MU's beloved football program is dead even H2H w/ Kansas...though most wouldn't believe it because KU has recently had some historically bad football teams. But KU wona BCS bowl not too long ago...something MU has never done despite whether or not they deserved to be there...they showed up and thumped the shit out of VTech.
Now clearly MU has a much better program now, and has had many more NFL players (and good ones) come out of that school. MU fans just don't like to hear facts. Most of them live in dreamlands.
I have no problem with this. If you want to talk shit, talk shit. Just don't pretend that you don't care.
As for the "who is at fault for not playing" thing goes, obviously it goes both ways.
I used to have a job with several good friends as co-workers. I obviously saw them every day. When I left for a much better job, part of the deal was that I would have different co-workers. They didn't all refuse to ever hang out just because I didn't work with them. We still see each other regularly, just not as often because we don't work together. If you're friends, you associate with each other because you want to, not because your work (conference) schedule demands it.
