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
