LSU Loses. KU #1 for 30 hours!

I like KU fans. I'm married to one (well, she's more of a graduate than a fan).

That's why I hope from the bottom of my heart that they enjoy their brief moment atop the NCAA Football Universe.

Are you a Mizzou fan?

Politics as usual.

From the AP.

The Jayhawks and Tigers trace the roots of their feud all the way back to pre-Civil War days on the Western frontier when free state Kansas warred against slave state Missouri and each side piled up atrocities against the other.

These two are so quarrelsome, they can't even agree on the overall series record. Ask a Jayhawk fan, and he'll say Kansas leads 54-52-9. Tiger followers swear it's knotted up at 53-53-9.

When they played their first football game against each other in 1891, monarchies still ruled Europe. The NCAA didn't even exist. Young men have butted heads in Kansas-Missouri games and later marched away to fight in the Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam and Iraq.

So many years and so many games encompassing such a broad swath of American history -- and never was so much at stake for players, coaches and fans as there will be at Arrowhead Stadium.

Of course I'm a Mizzou fan.

And the only people who deny that the series is tied are lawless cheaters, refusing to accept proper authority.
