yep, no need to despise any other school. I would have voted for Nebraska, but sadly they too are goners.

Jayhawks are always despised.

What creep decided despised is the word to go with? They are interested in beefing the scum level of athletic fanaticism. I prefer asking people who would be great rivals? The sports' culture is just dirty business to some. This poll question is so Jerry Springer.

Mizzou is despised and hated. Key word is despised. That means it has to be TX or OU. They are so easy to despise.

I suppose KSU by default but nothing better than beating the Huggy Bear!

Hate is a difficult word I reserve for a select few and I don't think I can hate K-State or Frank Martin.

That doesn't mean we cannot have an intense rivalry.

Missouri was a different deal. Columbia, MO just plain sucks and always has.

Hey classclown why do we have to hate TCU just because of the Christian name? What have Christians ever done to you? They are just people who exercise a faith, like any other religion does. In fact, the only religion in the world that tells their followers to kill anyone who does not believe as they do is Islam. No one else does that.

Having said all that I would still like to play Missouri once or twice a year. I just love the rivalry, always have.

The only reasons to continue the Mizzou rivalry would be to their benefit:

Give them relevance in their natural home (Midwest)! Give them some access to Kansas City area recruits that do not "cotton" to the SEC! Give them a chance to fill the Paige Center once a year! Give them one leg out of their Confederate past!

This is a pointless conversation. Everyone knows that if you want a Big 12 trophy in men's basketball you gotta come through the Phog in Lawrence. Every team is going to give us their best shot which makes all of them a rival. As for the rest of our sports, it's never going to be the same with any other school. But on continuing the rivalry? Why? If there isn't anything at stake, what's the appeal?

Sadly, there was no option for "Who gives a crap anyway?"

Yeah, MIZZOU will always be my most hated. I think that we should nuke them from orbit. It's the only way to be sure they won't come crawling back...

I like the friendly rivalry with KSU. It's like sibling rivalry, at least to me. It's exactly how I felt as a kid with my brother. I can beat up on him, but don't let anyone else touch him. So, I say KState. But, they can beat who they want, just not us.

Who cares? I think sports are highly over-rated and a boring to watch.

TEXAS, remember "everything is bigger in texas" well that includes EGO.

Why do we need rival. We are Kansas, we have no rival. This question is so missouri-ish

Yeah, let's stir up some hate!

This is the kind of poll I'd expect to come out of Columbia, MO

LJW, this has got to be the most childish poll question ever.

Any of the Texas schools because of Governor Rick (Hair) Perry! Either Oklahoma School because of whacky, globally warmed Senator James (Mountain) Inhofe! K-State because of graduate, "C-Steet", Smilin Sam! Iowa State, because Larry Eustacy thought the Mizzou cheerleaders were hot! West Virginia, because a equally hillbilly(ish) replacement for Mizzou!

Maybe we should just wait and see what team a future mediocre coach that will end up getting a street renamed after him gets his panties in a twist over.

Probably TCU because of the whole christian aspect with this being Lawrence.

Four possibilities other than K-State: Baylor, because of Bill Clinton hater and sexually repressed Baylor President Ken Starr: Oklahoma, because of OU President and former right-wing Senator David Boren: Texas, because of Deloss Dodds, justifier of officiating screw-up in KU loss to Texas in FB! Oklahoma State, because they have Eskimo Joe's!

I have no rivals... which is not to say that I don't hate everyone.

I agree with the other posters, why do we need to despise someone? It's not like we had to despise a team and we happened to choose Missouri. There are other reasons to despise Missouri and their leaving to the SEC won't stop me from feeling ill every time I cross the state line into that retched state.

It's hard to dislike KSU the same way. Maybe for those from Overland Park it's easier. Those of us from west of Wanamaker, though... many of us have decent memories in MHK. A debate camp or Boys' State or just a house party or two. We even briefly considered going there. Not the same sort of rivalry.

Yah, what's with all the hate? ';cept for mizzou. They stink. They should go to jail. They should be banished to the Phantom Zone along with General Zod.

Ok, ok, I'll go Baylor. Kenneth Starr is a putz.

Any school with "Christian" in the name should be the first to garner hate.

Why do we have to despise anybody? Really. Cain't we all just get along? Except Missouri, in or out we'll hate those bastards.
