    Big 12 Chatter

    OK, we all know Missouri and Kansas is a huge rivalry. The fans hate each other and the games are usually very intense. What I'm seeing this week is something pretty amazing...even KU fans are cheering for Missouri to beat Oklahoma this weekend. Nobody wants to see Nebraska in the Big 12 Championship Game. People have a genuine dislike for the fans of Nebraska. It isn't envy or disrespect for the program...it's the fans.

    It's pretty amazing when you have a conference of 12 teams and each of them has the same feeling towards one particular team. I just get so infuriated when I hear announcers gloat about how great the fans are. They might look great from the pressbox or when you are walking from your cab to the stadium but being amongst them on a day-to-day basis is a completely different story.

    I think the "forgotten five," had an attitude adjustment this summer. I'm cheering for Mizzou a little too. They can lose one game (to us ), beat NU and go to the title game.

    Re: Big 12 Chatter

    If it weren't for the fact that a legitimate top 15 Missouri means no bowling for us, I'd be pulling really hard for them. But my desire to see the Cyclones go bowling is greater than my hatred for Nebraska, so I wouldn't mind seeing Missouri get crushed.

    In an ideal world, Nebraska would struggle down the stretch (with a loss to us of course) and we'd hear all off season how they won't be able to compete in the B11, and then they go out next season and bulldoze every team in that conference en route to a conference championship season.

    I see where you are going with this, but I really think we have the same chance of beating Missouri regardless of if they beat Oklahoma or not. I'll be cheering hard for Missouri for two reasons. I don't want to see Nebraska win the north, and in general I pull for all north teams against south teams (except Nebraska in all cases)

    Does a MU blow-out victory against NU mean MU is too tough for ISU, or that NU represents a better chance at a win? I think ISU matches up better with NU.

    Husker fans aren't annoying for being rude to opponents like Hawkeyes are. Instead, Husker fans just have a stick up their rear, bragging about how great they are when they win and crying like babies when they lose.

    When it comes to being classy towards visiting fans, they are great. I guess the media thinks that means they are the best fans in the country. If you interact with a Husker fan in your daily life, though, they suck.

    That would be perfect.

    I for one will be rooting for the Sooners tomorrow... lost in the whole forgotten 5 angle is that Missouri had their lips planted on the Big Ten's backside, Big Ten said no thank you...

    Old Big 8 beatdown is coming for Mizzou... they just don't know it yet

    When fans are yelling obscenities and calling for their team to rip the opponents heads off in the closing minutes of a 50+ point win, politely clapping as both teams leave the field does not bring you back up to classy in my opinion.

    Maybe I was just in Memorial Stadium in the wrong section and/or on a bad day, but I will never go back.
