Classic Fam…

A primer for everyone interested in the big game Satuday…

Here is an exerpt from another CNNSI piece:

But honestly, I think the bile runs deeper beneath the Kansas-Mizzou set-to, a rivalry with roots reaching back to an actual guerrilla war. This week, Mizzou students have been sporting T-shirts depicting the depredations of William Quantrill, who once led a band of pro-slavery irregulars on a raid of Lawrence, killing an estimated 150 citizens. The shirt, which I haven’t seen, is said to depict that murderous raid, along with the word, “Scoreboard.”

Wow. Kind of makes that old Jayhawk staple, “Muck Fizzou,” seem tasteful by comparison.

A few years ago, officials at both Kansas and Mizzou decided to rename the rivalry known for decades as The Border War. “Showdown my ass,” growls ex-Jayhawks football coach Don Fambrough, still vigorous and profane at 85. Coach Fam speaks for many Kansas fans when he continues, “It’s a goddam war. And they started it!”

And here is a classic Fam speech he gave a few years ago

Week 13 Line-up

I know this week is one giant logistical juggling act but the cut-off is prior to the Texas kick-off on Friday.

  • mizzou vs. KU (-2) — neutral field at Arrow Head.
  • Texas (-5.5) at tamu
  • Wildcard: OU (-12.5) at Okie St.
  • Wildcard: Alabama (+6) at Auburn
  • Wildcard: Virginia Tech (-3.5) at Virginia

KU KU vs. ——
The Dream Season caps off conference play with the Dream Game. And as atypical this season has been this match-up, in te surface resembles a traditional Kansas vs. mizzou battle. mizzou typically fields superior talent…I can’t explain it but the recruit well under the radar. mu typically is favored. And mu is typically outcoached and typically pisses down their leg. This year will be no different….KU holds mu under 30 and comes up with the biggest win in school history. Yes…..thank you pigs as KU will be the #1 in the country come Sunday. I am beside myself I am so effing pumped for this.

Wildcard: Okie St. at OU….OU had quarterback questions coming into the season and have quarterback questions to wrap up the season. The Orage Aggies emphasis the insanity of the season and cover in Norman.

Wildcard: Alabama at Auburn Sabin’s season went up in smoke against LSU. Auburn’s AD is kicking himself for Lousiville-gate now that Fran has “stepped down.” A difficult call here but I’ll go with the War Eagles to cover in a resume builder.

Wildcard: Virginia Tech (-3.5) at VirginiaThe Cavs are the cardiac kids of this season. Va Tech is overrated. Virginia covers.
