    Hey, I thought the "Big ten loves morning games" was a good one! ha.
    As a fan I freaking hate the 11am kicks. And thats par the course for the Big 10.
    I feel sorry for my Iowa fan buddies who almost always have to wake up at the butt-**** crack of dawn every saturday!

    This is the dumbest thing ever though.

    5. I had to google your rivalries. Time for some new ones. Don’t get all worked up at me, I’m on your team here. But, seriously.
    Uh, Mizzou/Kansas??? Its one of the absolute oldest rivalries in the world after Minny/Wisconsin and Christians and Muslims.

    It's also a pretty meaningless rivalry, but I guess that is more Kansas fault than Mizzou.

    Still think Mizzou stays put, though.

    Yeah, Mizzou-Kansas is a great rivalry, as bloodthirsty as it gets... I mean, it began during the Civil War when people from Missouri snuck over the border and freaking burned Lawrence to the ground!

    You can tell whoever wrote this article is clueless.

    Uh no, when two schools/fanbases hate each other that much, its an incredibly meaningful rivalry. Nice try though.

    Relevant to whom? Who makes that determination? Its incredibly relevant to the states of Missouri and Kansas and the schools who participate in it. Who gives a damn if its relevant to some east coast Sportscenter anchor or somebody from the South who couldn't find the states on a map in the first place?

    Either way, it probably won't be what keeps them around. I imagine they'll stick around anyway. You normally don't leave to join your 2nd choice for a conference.

    Oh yeah, they'd leave for the Big 10 in a second, that's a no-brainer. Though the Big 10 may be inferior in Football to the SEC, its exponentially superior academically, and the school fits in much better culture-wise with the Big 10 than SEC. Last year, the University leadership, and even the Governor, were drooling at the thought of leaving for the Big 10. SEC is a different story.

    Don't think they really fit in the SEC, either.

    If they want the Big Ten, they'll wait. I don't really understand the academic element of that decision, but apparently they want it.
