The KU/MU rivalry is important to both schools. Regardless of what has been said, it's going to happen again and eventually, it will end up a yearly thing - at least in basketball. Although I'd love to see KU football take some huge steps and make football part of the equation as well. Might as well get used to the idea of it now.
You're severely overestimating the value of the Border War. Esp to KU basketball. Our fanbase tunes in to watch KU play, not MU play. You haven't explained how renewing the Border War makes KU additional revenue over playing non-cons at home. I'd like to see your math here.
Each year it goes without being played, the less attached people are to it. In 5-10 years, our students that will be on campus will be old enough that they won't even remember it being played.
