Re: TIME TO FREAK OUT AGAIN ABOUT CONFERENCE REALIGNMENT! TH

The move also got MU 10X more national exposure with SEC Football. The thing is, the first year they had exposure because it was new. The second year they had exposure because they were winning. If they continue to win, they will have the exposure just as they did when they were winning in the Big ...

Re: 39th St./KU Med development?

A gentleman from the University of Kansas Hospital spoke to the Volker Neighborhood Association last night and presented their plans for the proposed building on the NW corner of 39th/State Line. Current rendering was an 8 story building, with future expansion possibilities to 11 stories. Bottom 3 ...

Where did you get that picture? Who would have thought the post of the year would have been so early on in 2014? I can see him both drooling with envy and indignation =P~ Where did you get that picture? =P~ I just found this post. My wife said, "It's not that funny". She just doesn't understand!

Re: 2013 - 2014 College Basketball Season

Since (and including) 2008, when KU won the title, the ACC has been over a full position in average ranking below the Big 12 in the Kenpom.com rankings. The Big 12 has occupied 15.3% of the Elite Eight positions over the 9 completed seasons within the last 10 years. The Big 12 has had 6 different s...

Re: Kansas to allow businesses to elect not to serve gay cou

Arizona has passed a similar bill, although the Republican Governor may veto it, as she did last year. A recent PublicPolicyPolling poll showed 29% of Kansans are in favor of the bill, 59% oppose it. 44% favor gay marriage, with 66% of Kansans supporting same-sex civil unions. Believe it or not, bu...

Re: Kansas to allow businesses to elect not to serve gay cou

Those places aren't full of extremists, but the GOP in those areas are. Kansas isn't the most conservative state, but probably one of the states most loyal to the Republican party, people in KS automatically vote Republican and Democrats don't even run a candidate in many elections I think that thi...

Re: 2013 - 2014 College Football Season

I can't tell you the number of times I've been told I'm a bad Mizzou fan because I root for Sporting KC. How dare I root for a Kansas team! How dare I root for the Chiefs! KU fans root for the Chiefs or Royals! The Chiefs are KU's team! Let KU deal with the Royals! A true Missouri fan would root fo...

Re: 2013 - 2014 College Football Season

No, that is an upside of Mizzou leaving for the SEC. They got a cakewalk through a weak SEC east schedule to the SEC championship, Cotton Bowl birth and top ten ranking. Yep. Don't you wish your favorite team was in the SEC? In a way I do, in a way I don't. I mean, it would be fun to play for the c...

Re: 2013 - 2014 College Football Season

Of course! The Big 12 is hands down THE BEST in hypothetical scenarios. That is one of the major downsides to Mizzou being the SEC: the SEC sucks in hypothetical scenarios! I have to give props to the Big 12 for winning the hypothetical national championship every year. No, that is an upside of Miz...

Re: 2013 - 2014 College Football Season

You're right. I'm sure the SEC wishes it only had 1 or 2 bowl wins so that they can use the logic Big 12 fans use and say "Our 2 wins are more impressive than ________ conference's 5 wins because we played better in those 2 games." Nobody said the SEC is perfect, just that it's among the best, if n...

Re: 2013 - 2014 College Football Season

By BCS ranking expectations, the Big 12 is actually performing above expectations (1 win above expectations), and SEC teams have exactly as many wins as one would expect so far. So when you say the SEC should sweep its remaining games, technically the -1 BCS ranking disadvantage for Auburn has them...

A&M squeaks by Duke, LSU squeaks by a very mediocre Iowa team, Georgia loses to a very mediocre Nebraska team, South Carolina squeaks by a mediocre Wisconsin team. SEC is lucky not to be 2-4 right now. They can count their blessings that they have so many favorable matchups. Vandy should beat Housto...

Re: Kansas, Missouri pushing to eliminate state income tax?

What is the mood on the ground in Kansas? Is there any sense of Kansas starting to become a blue state? Or at least an Eisenhower Republican state? Will Kansans vote for ex moderate Republicans who run as Democrats or continue to vote for the person with the R by their name?

Re: 2013 - 2014 College Basketball Season

KU is terribly frustrating. But its not panic time. The team lost 3 games by Christmas in 2011, and they ended up in the national title game. With so many freshman, its going to take time to learn Bill's way. With OSU, ISU and Baylor playing so well, we could have a really fun conference season tho...

That's good to hear. We are on the smallish end of MLS capacity, so it would be nice to be able to get toward the other end. At the same time, though, it appears that we are only one of a few teams that consistently sell out, and that is something that seems to create an incredible atmosphere, and I...

That's fair enough. % of ranked teams (and where they're ranked) % bowl eligible teams % of games played against ranked opponents % of game played against bowl eligible teams But again, this is just one way of looking at it.
