I deal with some mizzery grads in my work and I have some mizzery grad acquaintances that live in the KC area, Sedalia area, Clinton area, and even Jefferson City and Columbia areas. Every last one of them has spontaneously mentioned or volunteered that they've lost most or all interest in following mizzery sports since their move to the sec. Upon further questioning by me some said the move was exciting at first because it was all new, but now that's worn off and they just don't care much anymore. They don't get excited about playing the Vanderbilt's and Mississippi St.'s of the world or even the Georgia's and LSU's much less their new fake contrived rival Arkansas.

I was genuinely surprised by some who've said that to me over the past 10 years as they were quite rabid followers of mizzery sports before then. KU agreeing to play them now only has the possibility of ramping back up the enthusiasm of the Western and even central Missouri methu fan base while having little to none of the same effect on the KU faithful. KU bball hasn't skipped a beat and that's what drives most of our fans. If we'd figured out which way was up in football at all over the past 10 years too, I doubt our fans would have lost much enthusiasm on that front either. I just don't see any upside for KU outside of some short term money and a lot of potential upside for the slavers. Don't like it mainly for that reason.

For those who think it'll be just like before when we start playing them again, I think you're undervaluing them not being in the same conference anymore and the fact that all of the current students were in grade school the last time we played against each other. They'll have little to no clue as to the previous passions behind this rivalry. There just won't be anywhere near the same energy behind it and nothing of worth riding on the game (i.e. conference standings).

although neither ku nor k-state fans will have the same kind of venom for these missouri games, they will be a step up from playing duke, illinois, or unlv. plus, kc recruiting comes into play.

i don't have the personal hate for missouri that many here profess, thus it's easier for me to like these matchups. k-state has scheduled missouri in both football and mbb.

for missouri, it may only create more angst if they lose. they were very unhappy after getting b'slapped in basketball by state in kc a couple of years back. i agree that a lot of their fanbase is not happy with the state of athletics resulting from their sec money grab.

"The dates are set for the renewal of the football series between longtime border rivals Kansas and Missouri.

The four-game series, which was rumored to be in the works early last month, will begin in five years, with KU making a trip to Columbia on Sept. 6, 2025, for the first of four on-campus clashes between KU and Mizzou.

The Tigers will play in Lawrence on Sept. 12, 2026, and the series will take a five-year break from there before starting up again in 2031.

Kansas will travel to Missouri on Sept. 6, 2031, for the third game in the series, and MU will come to Lawrence on Sept. 12, 2032, to complete the current plans."

yes, she does look like a kansas land granter doesn't she. sorta like shalee lehning, kayla goth, megan mahoney in that way. but back to point, what's not to like here - a true rivalry?
