You Jayhawks can rejoice all you want. I'd be a little embarrassed knowing that the Mizzou Tigers put a whooping on you and you get oranges. I would call your bowl the Comedy Bowl cause the Jayhawks are the 3rd team in the Big 12. The siver lining is that Mizzou will do well in the Cotton Bowl, the base of where we both compete for Texas football players......I'd say we'll get the better share......All KU can look forward to is Arrowhead next year where the result will most likely be the same.....Good Luck in Miami, please, please do not embarrass the Big 12 and lose the game..... We busted your bubble..... MU

That's a nice picture, though. James McClinton looks good holding an orange.

Kim Gouge 10 years, 5 months ago embarrassment in Lawrence. Take your sore loser "siver" lining to the Hillbilly Bowl where Daniel can throw another little hissy fit. As far as embarrassing the Big 12...not likely...we have MU in the conference.
