What do you think fuels the rivalry between the University of Missouri and Kansas University?
Asked at Hastings, 1900 W 23rd St. on July 9, 2005
“The history of Quantrill’s raiders was probably the start of it. Once you get a good rivalry going, it just kind of snowballs.”
“Probably just the proximity. That’s my best guess, unless you want to go really far back to the Civil War.”
“Tradition, I suppose. Just because it’s always been there. It’s something to rely on.”
“It probably stems back to the Civil War, I would think. I’m not sure that’s where it came from, but it makes it seem more legitimate.”
