How important is it for KU to win the football game against Missouri?
Asked at Jefferson's Restaurant, 743 Mass. on November 23, 2007
“I think it will establish them as a legitimate national contender. ESPN is still hesitant to give them the respect they deserve.”
“I think it’s going to show everyone that they’re as good as we know they are. If they can beat another top five team, they will prove it to them.”
“It’s crucial. It’s the first ranked opponent they’ve played this year besides K-State. It will be huge for Mangino, too. They’ve had a pretty easy schedule and this gives him the chance to show what he can do.”
“It keeps open the possibility for the national title. The rivalry is huge, and in this game it’s being felt on the national level because the game is getting so much attention. It’s strange to live in New York and hear people talking about the KU game.”
