    I live an hours drive from State College but that is a sacrifice I am willing to make. Bring on the meteor!

    Otherwise a windowless/sound proof structure will suffice too... such as a shower. They have an abundance of those there.

    Just wear shoes.

    My home state used to play them every year in football, etc, while both teams were in the Big 12. It had been the longest-running football rivalry west of the Mississippi up to that point. It grew out of Quantril's Raiders and The James Gang. There is a long history.

    I am actually going to be visiting family in Ohio for that game so it’s all good. For the record I would in fact sacrifice for the cause.

    Well aware of the history. I feel the same way about your state and I didn't even grow up here. M-I-Z, Z-O-U chose to leave, that's not KU's fault. At least they had a chance to win a conference title before leaving. Now, they have little to no shot in the current SEC.

    Serious questions? Are you happy with the decision now that MIZZOU basically has no "true" rival except Arkansas? Do you ever get to see them play on the road?

    I hate being an OSU fan living in KS. Only road venue that is close is Lincoln, and that's 3.5-4 hrs away. And, I only make it back to Columbus once every few yrs for a game. Sucks.

    Zurp I have misplaced my pants.

    Meteors haven't done anything special for about 66 million years. They're due for another win.
    All in, baby!!!

    I don't see them scoring more than 10-14 points on offense and I don't see them keeping us under 30. If we play "B" level it will be something like 38-14 and if we play "A" level it will be 49-7 or 52-10ish.

    I am not one bit happy that the Big 8 dissolved, in effect, when they allowed Texas to dominate it. I grew up watching the Bulldogs (early sixties mascot for Missouri). I did not want to see them move to the SEC, for many reasons. Academically, they fit much better with the B1G. Probably better geographically, too. They could have had rivalries with Illinois, Iowa, resumed their rivalry with Nebraska, etc. But, judging from the Mizzou Talk board on the Post-Dispatch's website, they were sick to death of Texas and worried that the Big 12 would just evaporate. There were rumors of both Oklahomas to the SEC, all kinds of crazy stuff.

    I guess that I am too old for such sea-changes in the college football landscape. The B1G has done okay with them, but is still not where it should be, strength-wise, top to bottom.

    Thanks for your post. I wish that we were still playing. It was a great and very even rivalry. It was almost a death curse to be the favorite in that game.

    Being an OSU guy, KU football was the biggest disappointment for me when I moved here in late '09. Allen Field House was always a bucket list venue for me being a huge college sports fan, but going from a game day in Columbus and 105k+ in the Shoe to a picnic in the park and a 50k only half full Memorial Stadium was a huge let down.

    The Mizzou vs KU basketball games @ Allen before u guys moved to the SEC were some of best regular season college games I've ever attended.
