    Interesting Billboard

    In Kansas City there is a billboard showing the skyline of Kansas City and the logos of KU and KSU on there. Above the two logos is the Big XII logo. Was wondering if anyone else saw this in the KC area and what they thought.

    I haven't seen the billboards but I was listening to 810 today and heard a commercial that stated that KU was loyal to the area... sounds like some backlash about MU going to the SEC?

    Here's a picture. Nothing big, just thought it was interesting. Area is by the Sprint Center heading North on 71.

    Re: Interesting Billboard

    Heard about it, but not surprised that a few donors from KU & KSU got together and decided that it would be a nice idea. I'm sure a few fair weather fans in the Kansas City area could switch allegiances beings they won't see Mizzou in the area as much...

    Definitely expected the backlash though, it was inevitable...

    Oh, definitely. I could see a LOT of fans switching allegiances after seeing this billboard. True story: I ALMOST became a Cyclone fan after driving by a billboard in eastern Iowa that had Greg McDermott on it. Powerful, powerful stuff.

    Do NOT underestimate the power of billboards.

    Why is an SEC fan constantly on our board? It's beyond weird. Feel free to change your name to Cyclonelander.

    He didn't say they would switch because of a billboard, he said that not having them in the area as much would cause fewer fair weather fans. You disagree that some bandwagoners might jump ship in the K.C. area? Not real fans like yourself, mind you, fair weather types.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    There ARE no fair-weather Missouri fans. Because there is no fair weather.
