Antlers get one last chance to rattle KU

Former Kansas guard Brandon Rush elevates for a jumper over Missouri forward Matt Lawrence in this Jan. 19, 2008, file photo in Columbia, Mo. The Mizzou student section should be out in full force for tonight’s KU-MU game in Columbia, Mo. The Tigers are 14-0 at home this season.

— Since 1976, there has been one constant in the Kansas-Missouri men’s basketball games played in Columbia, Mo. That’s the presence of MU’s loud — some might call it obnoxious — student cheering section known as “The Antlers.”

The students — some of the males in the group wear dresses and high heels to the games — have gained notoriety throughout the years, most notably for phoning KU players and coaches at all hours of the night and also holding signs at games that include the phone numbers of the Jayhawk players.

They’ll be seated behind one of the goals again today as No. 8 KU (18-4 overall, 8-1 Big 12) meets No. 4 MU (20-2, 7-2) at 8 p.m. in Mizzou Arena.

“One thing Missouri’s administration never took any responsibility for ... that group of Antlers was completely out of hand,” former KU coach Ted Owens said. “They would call you at your hotel and wake you and say terrible things, and their administration never did anything about it. And they were awful at the game. Riding the other team and the other coach is certainly a part of the game you expect, but they let it completely get out of hand.

“Some of those groups are funny and clever. They were neither funny or clever,” added Owens, KU’s coach from 1964 to ’83 whose teams went 26-20 versus the Tigers.

There have been no horror stories emanating from the KU camp regarding Antler tales thus far this season.

“I haven’t heard from them. My number’s not out there, so I don’t think I’ll hear from them,” said Travis Releford, KU’s junior forward out of Kansas City, Mo.

“You can tricked by anybody,” added Releford, who has been cautious with his digits because of The Antlers. “Somebody says, ‘Oh, hey, can I have your number?’ Then the next thing you know the whole school’s got it. You have to know who you are giving it out to.

“We told them (freshmen) earlier, ‘Don’t get on Twitter or Facebook giving out your number to one of those good-looking girls. Don’t fall for that.’ That’s how it’s happened in the past. You’ve got to be smart.”

Releford said The Antlers haven’t targeted him over the other KU players, just because he’s from Missouri.

“Not really,” he said. “If they do, I don’t hear it. They give the team more (grief) than they do me individually.”

The MU fans will be at a fever pitch tonight, not just because the game is for first place in the Big 12, but the fact it likely will be the final KU-MU game ever played in Columbia, with MU off to the SEC next season.

“It sucks that the rivalry won’t be there guaranteed every year, but we’re not going in like, ‘Oh, this is our last chance playing them here. We’ve got to really win,’ or anything like that,” Releford said. “We’re just going in like, ‘We’ve got to win the Big 12, and to win the Big 12, we’ve got to win on the road.’ And this is another road game we’ve got to play.”

As far as the on-court match-up, it boils down to a battle between MU’s four-guard lineup (Marcus Denmon, Kim English, Phil Pressey, Matt Pressey, with 6-foot-8 Ricardo Ratliffe at the pivot) and KU’s more traditional three wings and two big men (6-10 Thomas Robinson, 7-foot Jeff Withey).

“We see it as them having to match up with us instead of us having to match up with them. That’s our mind-set going into the game,” Withey said.

“We’ve got to guard their lineup, and they’ve also got to guard ours,” Releford noted. “We’re not going to change what we’ve been doing to play their style of ball. There are going to be times where I have to play the 4 because, every game, guys get in foul trouble. But going into the game, we’re not like, ‘Oh, Travis, you’ve got to play 4 this game, because they’re small.’ No. We’ve got to guard them, and they’ve got to guard us. They are fast and quick, and they can all shoot.”

Noted coach Bill Self: “I’ll tell our guys, it (height) is an advantage. They’ll tell their guys, it (speedy guard play) is an advantage for them. We have to wait and see how it all plays out.”

Self realizes it’s tougher to win on the road than at home but doesn’t believe the MU fans will decide this one.

“I think it’ll be loud,” Self said. “If it’s loud, you are not going to hear anything anyway. You are not going to hear individual comments. When you hear individual comments ... that’s when nobody’s in the stands and you can hear a pin drop.

“It’s going to be crazy, but people say it’s crazy in here (Allen Fieldhouse), too. Obviously the home court can play a factor, but I don’t think the verbiage that comes out of individuals’ mouths —the fans — will play a factor.”

After today, The Antlers will never have a chance to play a factor again.

KU has said the two teams will not be scheduling each other anytime soon, most certainly never in a home-and-home situation.

“I hated going to Columbia. They had the most classless fans,” noted former KU guard Michael Lee. “They spit on us, threw water, soda, cans. We would walk out for warm-ups and see our social security number on a piece of poster board. The best wins were always in Columbia.”

KU, by the way, is 171-94 all-time versus MU, 65-53 in Columbia. KU is 4-3 in Mizzou Arena after going 14-18 in Hearnes Center.

MU coach Frank Haith to the Columbia Tribune: “I think it’s a great rivalry. I’m excited about being a part of this thing this weekend. You look across the country, a lot of the talk of us not being able to play is based on us being in a different league. But you’ve Clemson and South Carolina, they’re not in the same league. You’ve got Georgia-Georgia Tech; Florida-Florida State. A lot of those teams are not in the same league, but they still play. Hopefully in time we can rekindle that.”

English said the Tigers respect KU’s rich hoops tradition, adding to the AP, “But we’re living in the here and now. Respect their players, really look up to them, respect their coach. That’s about it.”

“We cannot win any games except for Kansas, and we had a great season,” Missouri forward Ricardo Ratliffe said of the importance of the KU-MU games in the eyes of some fans.

Bye-bye to the loser-stink clown fools. It's not a real rivalry b/c they've never won anything.

squintseugene1 7 years, 10 months ago

Haith the reason those schools play each other still is because they are from the same state it would be like if KU or K-State left they would probably continue to play eachother. Muck Fizzou!!!!!!!

Saguaro_Jayhawk 7 years, 10 months ago

Interesting too that Texas and aTm will not play each other once aTm lands in the SEC.

I expect KU would get some grief from other conference members if moo, aTm, CU or corn were selected for OoC games. Those schools leaving the Big XII caused damages and should not be rewarded.

BillSelf4Prez 7 years, 10 months ago

I just looked up to see what this pathetic group is and it said in 2003 when we played at Misery they held up signs that said "Plane Crash" which was referring to Nick Collison's senior night speech in which he talked about how is Grandfather was a WW2 Vet and his plane crashed on D-Day but survived. What a pathetic group and losers in society.

actorman 7 years, 10 months ago

"We cannot win any games except for Kansas, and we had a great season."

Kind of sums up their whole pathetic "program" right there.

Andrew Bary 7 years, 10 months ago

Imagine if they were disappointed each year they didn't make a final four. Suicides in Columbia would certainly be higher.

John Randall 7 years, 10 months ago

"We cannot win any games ..." we are not able to win any games ...

"We can not win any games ..." we possibly will not win any games ...

And the J/W implies they only wear them at the games. Not true.

notigers4me 7 years, 10 months ago

This is a game that is a must win for KU we cannot lose to such a classless group of people. Their administration are a bunch of wimps to allow the antlers to do the things that they do. I personally cannot stand the tigers. I for one would never let my kid go to Missouri to school and I live in Missouri. There is notihing good in Columbia and I won't even go to the restroom there. Go Hawks.

Marc Frey 7 years, 10 months ago

You are correct, he needs help....getting out of that hell-hole, Missouri.

RockChalkGuy 7 years, 10 months ago

I'll give him some help. MU does not have any redeeming qualities and could disappear from the face of the earth and the human race would be all the better for it.

FairwayKS 7 years, 10 months ago

You're giving them WAAAY too much credit RCG...."human race"?? Not even close. Primordial oooze, maybe. ROCK CHALK!!!!

Cantkeepagooddudedown 7 years, 10 months ago

I go to the restroom there. That toilet is really hard to hit, though. I swear it's not regulation size and it's a moving target. I can't even hit that thing dropping a deuce!

PurePierce 7 years, 10 months ago

antlers get too old for college. don't graduate, of course. move to oakland and spend the rest of their miserable lives cheering for the mule u of the nfl. (and yes, they don't deserve capital letters, either)

Take no prisoners today, boys. This one's for keeps. Rock Chalk!

Only in Columbia, Mo would the students think that Tigers have antlers.

Even K-State ain't that dumb.

HA HA HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Marc Frey 7 years, 10 months ago

Give your mommy her pc and go back to Little Einsteins, you may learn something.

LngTimeFan 7 years, 10 months ago

The trouble with MU fans like MizzouBest is that they are truely retarded, have no sense of history, are so focused on beating one team they have no focus on overallo success, and they are petty morons. Just read the drivel MizzouBest posts and all that will be confirmed. They only WISH they were even close to KU in education, stature, class, character, integrity, honesty, athletics, and being good people. Instead they are pathetic sub-human beings who have no hope of being normal. But, we must and will still tolerate their smallness. RCJH!

MizzouBest 7 years, 10 months ago

Hilariuos that KU claims to have 5 National Titles.......Are you kidding me???? You count those Helms Titles in the 1920's????? What a joke. They were still throwing the ball into barrels back then. And it is definitely not official.

Of the other 3......KU barely won 2 of them.

DaSherriff 7 years, 10 months ago

Tis better to have "Barely" won than to not won at all....LOSER!

Michael Luby 7 years, 10 months ago

Ummm, how many national titles does Fizzou have? How many Big 12 conference titles does Fizzou have?

Big Fat ZERO! None. You lose.

Is that the best you got, MisseryBest? Oh yeah, I guess it is. You guys have what? One National Championship in indoor women's track or something in the 60's? Oh, but you have all those Final 4's...NOT.

If you want to come on here and talk trash, we're cool with that. Just try to come up with something good. I know that's a challenge when your own program has accomplished nothing in 100+ years.

you know what KANSAS doesn't do, is hang flags in our gym of NCAA appearances, b/c that's expected.

Kye Clark 7 years, 10 months ago

Of course we count the Helms titles. All those SEC schools you're about to join count their BCS football titles...how is that not the same thing?

I wouldn't expect a Fizzou fan to know anything about titles though.

agraves 7 years, 10 months ago

On 610 yesterday they were talking about Mizzou storming the court if they win tonight. Then I believe it was Nick Wright who said KU should storm the court if we beat Mizzou at Allen Fieldhouse. Then someone came on and said the biggest difference between KU and MU is that fans of MU 'HOPE' to win games whereas KU fans 'EXPECT' to win games. Then went on to say that for Mizzou...this game is there National Championship. How pathetic is that beating a conference opponent ranks up there with winning a National Championship. Guess that's what you get when you never experience victory on a National stage like the NCAA tourney or BCS bowls! Dunno if KU will win tonight...but it will be a fun game to watch and a sad one too. Hard to believe this will be last time KU plays MU in Columbia! Oh well...Hawks lets send them out the right way...with their tails and their antlers chopped off!!! Go Jayhawks!

MizzouBest 7 years, 10 months ago

Only problem is that you're going to lose tonight

Marc Frey 7 years, 10 months ago

When you are 171-94 vs a team (Mizzery for example), there is not reason ever to storm the court. Plus, we are KANSAS, and we do not ever need to storm a court with the possible exception of winning the National Championship.

Dan Harris 7 years, 10 months ago

Storming the court is for programs that are not used to winning and are not expected to win that particular game. Missery fits the bill in the first criteria but being the higher ranked team and playing at home they should expect to win so storming the court would be embarrassing and pathetic(and typical from the inbred fans).

Steve Brown 7 years, 10 months ago

If I were a Mizzwho fan I would storm the court after every victory over a higher ranked opponent. Both of them.

Problem is you are higher ranked than us today, so to storm the court expresses what we all know, that should you win you see it at huge upset. Point made.

Last I stormed the court, Stallworth hung 50 on you prior to post season tourneys, it knocked you out of March '16' team tourney, putting State in, and we lost our minds. Won't happen again that a win over you excites such unexpected glee.

Go ahead if you beat a lower ranked team this year, storm the court.

MizzouBest 7 years, 10 months ago

And how many times has Kansas choked in March? Actually......which time have they not?????????????/

DaSherriff 7 years, 10 months ago

2008? When we won the National Championship. MU fans have alot of amnesia for some reason when it comes to that year. I don't blame you, I am sure that stings.

Michael Luby 7 years, 10 months ago

And how many times has MU been completely left out of the NCAA tourney since Norm Stewart left? I cant count that high

Dan Pawlowski 7 years, 10 months ago

How many times has Misery had the chance to choke in March?

Rob Keeney 7 years, 10 months ago

I recall a couple of 1st round NIT choke jobs.

MizzouBest 7 years, 10 months ago

Kansas obviously is not a competitive team when in a discussion with teams like Duke,UNC,KY......not even close. 2nd or 3rd tier. Thats why you will never get the best recruits. You pick after these schools choose who they want.

DaSherriff 7 years, 10 months ago

You should change your name to DukeBest on this post? Are you still talking trash for MU now or did you need to jump on the bandwagon of a real program to post this one? Best to just worry about how you can stop the 5 in a row streak that KU is on vs you than to worry about how we rank with the other power house schools. If our 2nd tier recruits continue to beat you like a drum, how do we then classify your players?

Dan Pawlowski 7 years, 10 months ago

All time wins (at end of last season) Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina, Duke.

So according to your logic we are behind schools we are in front of. Hmm, seems to be a major flaw in your logic. But than again, and this is from a Polish guy; In Poland they tell Missouri jokes.

MizzouBest 7 years, 10 months ago

Awe.....looks like DaSherriff is having a tantrum......awe.....poor crybaby. Just wait until tonight.......you will really be crying.

Dan Pawlowski 7 years, 10 months ago

Someone learned how to use mommy's big person computer.

MizzouBest 7 years, 10 months ago

Kansas likes to claim they are a "national power" but they really are not. The proof of that is in the recruits they get. Duke,UNC get the best. Then again.....why would you really want to play in Kansas????

Michael Luby 7 years, 10 months ago

Your not doing MU any justice by saying that at all. Basically you just proved that KU is better than MU by saying that.
It is a fact that more top recruits pick KU over MU

jaybate 7 years, 10 months ago

MizzouNotBest,

KU: Best winning percentage in nation last 5 years.

Ring in '08.

7 straight conference titles...longest current run of conference titles of any team in the country.

A steady stream of first round draft choices the last several years.

Number 1 recruit in country last year.

Number 3 recruit in country two years ago.

Top recruit in Missouri last year. :-)

Absolutely awesome incoming recruiting class.

Game's inventor.

Cradle of college coaching.

Take some asenopine and resist the strange voices in your head. :-)

actorman 7 years, 10 months ago

I don't know about you guys, but I am really going to miss intellectually stimulating posts like those exhibited by this tool.

Hey MisuseBest, could you come on here and troll us next year just for old time's sake? It's not like you'll be able to do any trolling on the SEC boards, what with your team getting stomped regularly and all.

How sad and pathetic it is to have to get your thrills by trashing another team on its own boards, especially when you can't even say anything about your own team but have to resort to disputing the other team's place among the top programs of all time.

MizzouBest 7 years, 10 months ago

Kim English is going to have a huge night tonight. 3's will be raining down ....he will have over 30 points......and he will completely open up the lane . KU has no way to stop our offense. None.

In honor of our Border War rivals:

Ask yourself this .. how can a team play D-1 college basketball for over a century and NOT make it to one measly final four? Just one. In over a century. The answer is only in Columbia ---- Dartmouth, Duequesne, Colorado, Holy Cross, Baylor, NYU, Wichita St., NC-Charlotte, SMU, Drake, Dayton, Iowa St., Seattle, and for goodness sake, Santa Clara, have all attained Final Four immortality. But Missouri ... well, they haven't. They watch it on TV. Rooting against their rival. One wonders how, in 110 years, there can't be at least one fluke? A ball that bounces the right way. The one shining moment. Just one. Incompetence can outweigh odds if it is significant. Heck, didn’t the entire tournament only have eight teams at one time? Oh, that’s right, they had to win the conference to get in. The Tigggers have attained immortality, all right.

Has a school's fans ever held a higher opinion of themselves for no apparent reason? This school hired Quinn Snyder over coach Self. Ponder that for a moment. MU is kind of a “mousse in the hair” school. But we know why .. KU hire a North Carolina assistant, so MU must go to Duke for their savior. What MU doesn't get is that the North Carolina was a descendent from the KU coaching tree. Their previous excellent hire, Larry Smith. He didn’t have “an internet.” This school forced Norm Stewart to leave, for Quinn Snyder. And now their administration disdains the former coach. Heck, their biggest rival had the man to center court, honored his accomplishments (limited as they may have been), and treated him like royalty. And he accepted the rocking chair. MU kicked him to the curb. Has anyone ever referred to the Missouri coaching tree? More like a shrub, or weed. This school rests in a state with highways in shambles, major cities are mired in urban decay, meth labs a-plenty, one urban center that was the nation's most dangerous city, another with a school district that can't educate, and banjos that play relentlessly further south, for those seeking deliverance from the misery. Canoe trip anyone? In politics, they are a "swing" state. I will leave that one alone.

This school prides themselves on their civil war history in the border war .. as a slave state. They pride themselves on the fact that they tried to convince Kansans, by murder and mayhem, to leave ranks of free states and join the Confederacy. Now, Missouri returns to their slave state roots. Yet a year and half ago, MU was spouting about aligning academically with the Big 10, as that was their calling. AAU school or some baloney. With that not in the cards, rejected, MU whores itself out to the SEC and their fine academic institutions -- under the calling card of "We're doing what's best for MU." What Brady Deaton may or may not understand, is that is the exact logic that landed Missouri in the Confederacy in the first place. They have now come full circle.

(cont) And its basketball arena, first known as the "Paige" Sports arena, was named for a college student who attended USC, and who paid a student to do work for her .. allegedly. Now it is simply Mizzou arena. Very original. Perhaps they could have harkened back to their basketball heritage, and pulled a name worthy of recognition ... word is they tried. They may still be trying. Word is they may name it after their best player of all-time ... Doug Smith. Impressive. And yes, we got the better Rush.

Mizzou fans are known to "storm the court" for wins .. in January .. against Oklahoma. They've been known to start the season in the top 5, only to finish in the NIT. But just making the tournament is success. Heck, just making the NIT is success. Their favorite March past-time is rooting against their rival. And their March tradition is buying and wearing t-shirts of schools that beat their rival, in the tournament that they aren’t in. But this is a school that had to run “deals” to get their basketball tickets purchased. And this is a school that defines its existence by their rival’s failures. And this all makes sense to them. Their arena is half full on a good night. Self says no to continuing the rivalry for now, knowing that without the KU rivalry, the pocketbook is where MU will be impacted. Very few real sellouts on that schedule -- one, to be precise.

A lack of real identity caused MU to be known as a softball school for a time, and they continue to emphasize their school of journalism. Point well taken -- that is absolutely wonderful. Something south of a debate national championship, though. They are so sure about their existence that they lobbied the legislature to keep Missouri State from becoming "Missouri State", preferring the less threatening Southwest Missouri State. "Champions Drive" .. the height of presumptuousness, runs between their basketball arena and their football stadium.

Dan Pawlowski 7 years, 10 months ago

LOL. As for the Missouri State name change, it really only changes the name you see at #29 in all time Div 1 BBall wins, Missouri State. Six spots ahead of Misery. Destiny is a bitch.

Simple fact is that Kansas is a contender every year, year after year. Conference championship. Tournament. Whatever. And there are no fans in the country morr classless or down right ignorant than missouri fans. Glad I'm a Jayhawk fan and not some inbred ignorant slaver from the worse state in the USA. Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

Jack Wilson 7 years, 10 months ago

(cont) Yet has there ever been a real "championship?" I’m sorry, did you know that MU did win a national championship … in indoor track .. in 1965. That’s as real as it gets in Columbia. As real as the gas station robberies, violent crime, and crime index areas that rank 11 out of 100 .. that’s right, 100 is the safest, and 11 is “Escape from New York” .. in Columbia. Their police chief, outside of his normal duties, scuffles with KU fans that simply have a banner stating “Allen Fieldhouse East” .. the KU fans are booted out of the arena and arrested. Of course, our fans were later cleared by a Columbia police internal investigation. But no apology.

Their fans scream bloody murder when their own player steps out of bounds, sure that the ref moved the line. Ignorant fans, they just don’t know any better. Every call must go their way or its robbery. Contrast that to AFH or Gonzaga, for goodness sake. Their all-male fan grouping, the Antlers, sit around and giggle about making phone calls to opposing players' rooms .. it's their calling card, after all ... all the while spending lots of time together, in hotel rooms .. not sure what the antlers are for; don't want to know. They revel in heckling opposing players Their favorite lines involve bringing up that a player’s brother is disabled, or referring to one of their body parts and a player’s sister, or simply yelling obscenities with no logical end. Now, we hear the NMT stuff is considered. Who thinks like that? We know. And MU security permits it .. all in fun. Their explanation? All colleges have fans like this, or so they think. Of course, there was some drinking with coach Eustachy .. Natty light, I hear.

kureignman 7 years, 10 months ago

This is Mizwho's national championship. IF they win, I guarantee that not only will they rush the floor, they will cut down the nets and make a DVD with a one shining moment video montage on it. We can not lose our composure. We will beat Moo in Lawrence and if we play at a neutral site in the big 12 tourney. The question is will Talylor be able to keep his head when Missoura makes a 3 and the crowd gets stupid. Will T-Rob not lose in when one of their goons keeps hacking him and he's not getting the calls. I think they will. Take away Methzoo's national championship!

Jack Wilson 7 years, 10 months ago

(cont) Has a school ever had major success yanked away at the last moment like this pathetic institution? The NU football "kicked" TD (“flea kicker”) in the last seconds as fans run onto the field, thinking they had won. Tyus Edney. Did you hear me? Tyus freaking Edney! Ricky Clemons, and jail, and Carmento Floyd, and taped phone calls and ATVs, crackers, and broken ribs. Beautiful. A #1 football ranking only to get punked by a real football school. The following season was to be THE season, but it crumbles without a Chase. A quarterback that digs deep in his nose, on national TV .. much like Spaulding. Their “best football season ever” resulted in a trip .. to the Cotton bowl. Of course, KU stole their glory .. with fans that actually travel. They are unsure of what BCS really means Like the Final Four, it is an amorphous concept. It’s a conspiracy. And, of course, a 5th down to defeat vs. Colorado. Now, with a team in the top 5, the Gods .. as in the days of Rome .. look dimly on the inferior institution's prospects. We know what's coming. We know. It is their destiny.

It is cruel, isn't it? MU is a school that still longingly harkens back to its confederate civil war history, that has such little tradition in any sport, that can’t ever really win anything, and that has an inflated self-image, that runs from conference to conference seeking shelter, claiming to be whatever is needed .. but deep down, they know. They know. In the end, Missouri will always shoot themselves in the foot. A school who contrast a rap video with our pregame video .. baby, We Are Mizzou. Some say without youtube we would have never known. But we know. They know. And they will always wish that the good Lord had permitted them to be born a Jayhawk.

Give a jeer for Mizzou's Tigers! A big game loss each time we play. Give a jeer for Mizzou's Tigers! And our Tigers will go down to defeat today. We've got the team that flames out each season; We've got the team that knows defeat! Give a jeer for Mizzou's Tigers! And our Tigers will lose today! Give a jeer for Mizzou's Tigers! And our Tigers will lose today!

Grrrrr Tigers.

As a note, I was at a basketball game last night in Independence .. my niece. A lady came in wearing a KU jacket. An old guy in a wheelchair, MU attire, said, "Lady, we don't allow those jackets in these parts." Not in a joking tone. I interjected .. "Sir, the lady has a bit of common sense." The gentleman replied, with a laugh to his wife (missing a few teeth, mind you .. the wife) "I don't know what you all drink in Lawrence." I finished the deal .. "Final Fours .. that's what we drink .. 13 of them." End of conversation.

Awww! Don't stop now. I was just getting into it and enjoying my breakfast cereal. Nice way to start my morning.

Seems to have knocked the socks off that Mucky U. troll. He/she probably stopped reading after the third line, realizing he/she would never be able to combat the truth. Probably went back to his/her kitty litter box to bury his/her head in sh.. oops, that would have censored this post.

KU: 1940 1952 1953 1957 1971 1974 1986 1988 1991 1993 2002 2003 2008

MU: still looking, give me a moment.

MizzouBest 7 years, 10 months ago

And Ku has not won many of those......not sure I would brag about this

Jackalope7 7 years, 10 months ago

We won enough to brag. It beats not even being in the conversation...like Mizzou.

Jack Wilson 7 years, 10 months ago

Perfect reply. It defines MU. "Yea but", "Yea but" ...

Tell me, how does a school play basketball for 110+ years and never, accidentally, by even a fluke, make a Final Four?

Still not even a BCS bowl game.

Every excuse in the world, I'm sure.

Dan Harris 7 years, 10 months ago

MB- tis far better to have loved and lost then to have never loved at all(and your sister doesn't count)

Steve Brown 7 years, 10 months ago

MB you miss the point, these are our final four banners, win 4 games to get in.

It is like winning the Masters once, get your own locker, welcome back to play even in your down years, have a seat at the champions table, get your Masters garunteed tee time. I regret I forgot you have no final four history so you didn't know, the point is we have our own locker at the final four, expect to get there even in our rebuilding years. Those years we 'struggle' to win the conference in our good years we walk away with it. We have history, tradition, banners, trophys, our own locker and HCBS, you got nothin'. Tonight we expect to win, if by some chance we don't a small pleasure will be watching your kiddies storm the court as if they won the lottery. When you come to AFH if by chance you are ranked #1 and we beat you with a last second prayer shot from half court you will notice we will not have our kiddies storm the court. Notice the difference. BTW thanks for coming on this site so we may preach to you, as I wouldn't visit a B&Gold site even to lecture you.

MizzouBest 7 years, 10 months ago

I have been doing Recon on this board for several days. So many morons....and so little time. But this clown Jaybate and Icthawk get my vote for #1 and #2.

Oh.....and think I'm going away? Nope. I will be on the live discussion board tonight. You will see me after every great MU play.....I will be in you heads all night......i will get to you....it will befun.....so fun.

Maybe I will stick around all season

Tonight......

Kansas 48 Missouri 82

Huge Blowout......will be awesome

Martin Rosenblum 7 years, 10 months ago

What about the second half points that KU will put on the board? Has there ever been such a lopsided victory of the few victories for Mizz against KU? How do you think your team can play such good defense against us to alow only 48 point while scoring 82 points themselves?

dynamitehawk 7 years, 10 months ago

Hi Mizzou,

I'm looking forward to the game too... But we've been ranked before, and these games happen all the time for KU. I can understand your enthusiasm. It's kind of cute. Never been to an MU board myself but I bet there is some pig Fu€k!ng, hooting and hollering, good times there in the deep deep south.

You show all the signs of a fetus who suffered from a mother who drank, smoked, prostituted, and methed full-term - fathers day in Missouri is a confusing place I'm told! Welcome to kusports.com! See you in the live chat, weirdo.

Steve Brown 7 years, 10 months ago

Best, glad you are here, stick around, your sis will need a ride home later, keep the studebaker warm...

MizzouBest 7 years, 10 months ago

The last game in Columbia will be remembered forever because of the huge blowout . MU will win by 30 points if not more. It will never be forgotten. MU will also win at KU. If they play in Big12 tourney.....we will win there as well. If they play in March Madness....we will destroy KU.

jhawkbacker 7 years, 10 months ago

MizzouWorst said we'll see him on the live board "after every great MU play" tonight. Thank goodness we won't have to read his delusional rants anymore after the game starts. MuckFizzou and the miniature pony you rode in on.

nuleafjhawk 7 years, 10 months ago

You guys recognize the "mizzouworst" moron, right?

A few months ago he was OklahomaSooner and then something to do with Texas.

A mindless idiot (apologies to idiots everywhere) who thinks we give a crap what he says.

MizzouBest 7 years, 10 months ago

No. Fail. My first time here.....and I'll be around to mock you Kansas fans for a while. MU will blow out KU tonight.....I'm talking by 30-40 points. Your players can't even win at ISU. We did.

lincase 7 years, 10 months ago

Please, everyone, take a moment to remember the Kansas fans who live in Missouri because of work commitments. There are a lot of us, and I promise you that: 1. We wear shoes--a select few of us even know how to tie them. 2. We do not marry our cousins--although I have a third cousin once removed who was very attractive. 3. We do not own slaves, although our children have to clean their own rooms. 4. We will be cheering hard for KU tonight. Go hawks!
5. MO best is not.

lincase 7 years, 10 months ago

Every word is true, I promise. We would move to Kansas, but since the housing crisis, we can't get enough money for our mobile home!

John Randall 7 years, 10 months ago

Stop it! You're confusing the natives!

  1. We wear shoes--a select few of us even know how to tie them. • • • cockle burrs were the inspiration for Velcro
  2. We do not marry our cousins--although I have a third cousin once removed who was very attractive. • • • first is better than third, by a damn sight
  3. We do not own slaves, although our children have to clean their own rooms. • • • is a "clean room" kind of like a mucked-out stall?
  4. We will be cheering hard for KU tonight. Go hawks! • • • if those hawks go too far, Mo IQ avg may be subterranian
  5. MO best is not. • • • "best" is relative – it may be just the top of a very short list

Andrew Bary 7 years, 10 months ago

A few pretty simple notes.
1) A Mizzou fan coming after KU because we don't win a national championship every year we make it to the final four is laughable. Almost as laughable as the fact that a team can exist for over 100 years and claim talent when having never made a final four.
2) We're still waiting on an apology for the whole slavery thing.

Martin Rosenblum 7 years, 10 months ago

Won't it be nice when Missouri is in the SEC? They'll be in a conference where kindred spirits may have existed way back in the day. They'll be in a conference with teams from Oxford, Mississippi, Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Baton Rouge, Lousiana, Starkville, Mississippi, Auburn, Alabama etc. where we all know history has recorded the tolerances and quality of life sensitivities toward all races and creeds. Yes, that's all in the past. But, it just seems like Missouri will fit right into the SEC now that I think about it.

packywacky88 7 years, 10 months ago

It is obvious why Misery U wants to keep playing us. Their only claim to any relevance in the basketball community is playing Kansas every year. After they leave for the SEC and stop playing KU, they will not be heard from again. Good riddance. Maybe in the next 100 years they might go to a Final 4. Not likely.

Martin Rosenblum 7 years, 10 months ago

Why does mizzou's golf course only have 14 holes??

Oh that's right, because nobody there can reach the Final Four!!!!!

(ripped from a comment on a youtube video)

packywacky88 7 years, 10 months ago

Maybe Misery's dismal post season performance and lack of Final 4 appearance is their penance for slavery and the atrocities committed against Kansas in their attempt to hold on to slavery? How else can you explain 5 National Championships and 13 Final 4s compared to 0 and 0?

Knight is good??? Surely you can't be serious?

Are you talking about the same guy who said that KU had "great depth?"

Dan Pawlowski 7 years, 10 months ago

I would not discount everything he says because of one comment. His play by play analysis is great. Now if he starts to consistently make obviously wrong statements that is another story. I did not hear his comment so I do not know the context.

I like it, lighthawk! That's a perfect comparison! (Well, maybe it's not quite perfect, since Biff is smarter and classier.)

MizzouBest 7 years, 10 months ago

It's so funny that Kansas fans think their team is one of the elite in college basketball. The facts dont show that though. KY,UNC and Duke are in a league of their own and will always get the best recruits. Kansas has 3 national titles....that's nothing. UConn has 3 with barely breaking a sweat.........No.....Kansas is really just another "also-ran".....unimpressive. Not even in the conversation, really.

Historically.....the great teams are UNC,Duke,UCLA and KY......honorable mention to UConn and Louisville.

Kansas? Not even top 10.

JayHok 7 years, 10 months ago

Hey I'm in Columbia. I'm so excited to see all of your trophies!

Ironic, isn't it?

sawman3333 7 years, 10 months ago

Let's, for a moment, say you are correct. That's fine by me. That means that a team "not even in the conversation," "also-ran," and "unimpressive" OWNS Misery. Have fun in the SEC and we'll see you in a 100 years as a "not even in the conversation" program.

Dan Pawlowski 7 years, 10 months ago

Apparently you have not mastered the scroll feature of your browser or perhaps your middle finger , reserved the scroll wheel on your mouse, has been sprained from overuse in that classy state of yours. In any case I will do you the favor of reposting my response to your worn comment. All time wins (at end of last season) Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina, Duke.

So according to your logic we are behind schools we are in front of. Hmm, seems to be a major flaw in your logic. But than again, and this is from a Polish guy; In Poland they tell Missouri jokes.

Jack Wilson 7 years, 10 months ago

but ... espn did a deal a few years ago, too, on just the 64 team tournament era, and KU was 2nd behind Duke.

MizzouBest 7 years, 10 months ago

You know how we know KU is not an elite team? Because when you say that to a KU fan they throw a tantrum and start squealing and shrieking.

Nothing but the truth would get a reaction like that.......Nothing hurts more than the truth.

Dan Pawlowski 7 years, 10 months ago

LOL. The headaches will go away soon. They only affect brain matter.

VaJay 7 years, 10 months ago

We're second on the all time wins list. Only an idiot wouldn't consider that elite, sorry. I like your spunk though; we've always needed a pet tiger on the boards.

Bee Bee 7 years, 10 months ago

Here s the truth..... NO CHAMPIONSHIP(S) in a major sports in over 100 years.

ps NO Final Fours either. Good luck in the SEC. MU is a 5 or 6 win football team starting next year. UK and Vandy just got easy wins on their schedules! We wont even discuss playing UK in hoops twice a year.

Good luck with that.

I'm still waiting for you to tell me when Mizzery won even one national title. So we claim 5, of which you recognize 3 as legit. Where are yours? How many do you claim? And how many of those are "legit"?

Does DGB really know what he signed on for? Brass Monkey Pinkel and the wanna-be slave state! Man I feel sorry for DGB, the son of a KU grad. Gill had two visits scheduled with DGB and cancelled both visits!

DGB, if you're reading this, it's not too late to schedule a visit with Weis. The NCAA would grant you an exception since you only signed the letter three days ago. You could play next year with Crist. Weis is a standup guy and doesn't even like brass monkey much less driving around in a car aiming for 5 year olds in the street with a bottle of brass monkey hanging out in his glove-box.

RCJ DGB, come on over to the side of the force that said no to slavery and no to Brass Monkey

Icthawkfan is a real piece of work........we have people like him on our fan boards. A true fan a t heart....but a real piece of work is that one.

Kye Clark 7 years, 10 months ago

Not sure if I should be flattered or insulted or indifferent that I have been singled out. And why? I have posted twice on this article. One post said "hilarious!". So surely that isn't it. The other post was in response to this troll discounting our National Championships awarded by the Helms Foundation. Here was my post:

"Of course we count the Helms titles. All those SEC schools you're about to join count their BCS football titles...how is that not the same thing?

I wouldn't expect a Fizzou fan to know anything about titles though."

So logically I must assume that he has concluded that I am a "real piece of work" based on this posting. Notice he offers no counter-argument. Of course this is no surprise. He has come on here today and offered little to nothing in the way of rationale argument. Granted there is no rationale argument to be had. What can Misery fans say to reasonably argue that they are better? Overall record? Nope. Head-to-head record? Nope. National title comparison? Nope. Final Fours? Nope. NCAA tournament appearances? Nope. Conference titles? Nope. And these are just the basketball comparisons. As lopsided as those comparisons are, I think the superiority of our fans in general - in life - is even greater. Better looking women, intelligence, personal hygiene, number of teeth...the list goes on & on.

So he comes here looking to rile up our fan base, because let's face it - there can't be anything worth talking about on their own boards. I've often wondered what kind of sad, pathetic existence makes one want to troll. I mean, we know MU fans are stupid, but exactly how stupid does one have to be in order to find pleasure in constantly getting made fun of and shown just how weak his/her own team really is? Surely there is an attention-seeking component to it, I just don't know see how showing off that you're the village idiot is a good thing.

At the end of the day, I think I shall take his calling me "a real piece of work" as a compliment. If what I'm doing/saying/thinking has a Fizzou fan thinking that, I must be doing something right!

MizzouBest 7 years, 10 months ago

Oh...I have been performing Reconn for several days....but just recently posted. Yes.....the psychiatric analysis of one like me is interesting indeed, isn't it? Certainly there must be some level of attention seeking indeed....that hypothesis cannot be denied. However.....it must go deeper, don't you think? Some need to agitate....to annoy....to bother.....to torment.....to aggravate.

As I surmised....you're a real piece of work. A true fan of your team.....meant as a compliment.

See you this evening.....shall we say around 8:00 PM?

The funny thing is that if not for Kansas, misery would never be on national tv. Do you think college gameday would go to misery for mu vs Texas. Ku is the only reason the country knows misery.

Dan Harris 7 years, 10 months ago

"Why does Kansas kick your a@@ every year!!!!! Couldn't have said it better! Thanks for the link.

Big Ten: No thanks Missouri, we'd rather have Nebraska.

SEC: Duh...OK MIssouri, join us

Big 12: So long (Missouri), you didn't have your Wheaties So long, we hate (didn't try to stop you) to see you go. Too bad, you didn't have your Wheaties (couldn't dominate anybody) So sad, you didn't win the game (Conference)

MizzouBest 7 years, 10 months ago

Dont assume all MU fans wanted this change. I did not. Yet we have absolutely zero control over it. I like Big12 and especially our rivalry.....and I think it's very sad that it is ending........It's all about $$$$ that you and I can do nothing about.

Martin Rosenblum 7 years, 10 months ago

Don't be sad! Think of this as a way to avoid the yearly frustration and humiliation in this series. I will say, however, that the SEC will not be hurt by the move. Kentucky will have a new conference foe to punish. So, Missouri will always be no better than number two in any conference they belong to.

The first intelligent comment you've mustered so far ;-)

Martin Rosenblum 7 years, 10 months ago

hawkinator -

I hope you're referring to MizzouBest regarding the "most intelligent comment".

dynamitehawk 7 years, 10 months ago

One thing is for sure. Ketucky will piss you off 10 times as much as Kansas. You've never interacted with Kentucky b/c your program has never been relevant, but in the SEC those cats will make KU look like angels. Trust me - we've seen it.

Jeeveshawk 7 years, 10 months ago

Whats the difference between a carp and a Missouri grad?

One is a bottom-feeding, grease-sucking scum, the other is a fish.

Jeeveshawk 7 years, 10 months ago

Neither team can adjust to each other's size. Whoever plays their own game better wins by a landslide. We have better coach. We win this.

Thad Daugherty 7 years, 10 months ago

Haith is going to be a one hit wonder. He has what 7 seniors on the roster? Let's see what he does next year with less talent and leadership. Let's all do ourselves a favor and ignore the Missouri posters during the game. If we ignore them they will go away.

Benjamin Piehler 7 years, 10 months ago

So a friend of mine gave me a Mizzou shirt a few years ago for god knows why... (It actually says "Mizzou-rah!" and has a fight song written on the back which was apparently written in a state of delirium.... Its kind of funny, look it up)

I have just located this shirt and me and some buddies are considering symbolically descarding/destroying it....

Any fun destruction suggestions?? Meniacal laugh

Thad Daugherty 7 years, 10 months ago

you could walk your dog and use it as a picker upper. you could use it to armor all your tires as a rag when you change your oil you could send it MB to use to wipe his tears with. (make sure you use it to clean your from unda with first) string it up between to trees and use it for antler hunting practice. (I am not condoning violence) Re-gift it to someone you dont like very well

Martin Rosenblum 7 years, 10 months ago

Find the most deserving homeless shelter and donate it as an article of clothing. It will be a humanitarian gesture on one level and will be weirdly humorous on an extremely perverse level to imagine the person walking the streets wearing the shirt. (Hey, you were the one with the "maniacal" laugh.)

I think is cute that we are MU's Superbowl. Especially how one sided the series has been. Complete domination.

Bee Bee 7 years, 10 months ago

I still have time before the game to finishing reading the shortest book ever written. It s called, THE HISTORY OF MIZZOU IN THE FINAL FOUR. I just finished the second shortest, MIZZOU players in the NBA!!!!

texashawk10 7 years, 10 months ago

Second shortest is Missouri in BCS bowls.

ancient_hawk 7 years, 10 months ago

True, there are THREE whole Tigers in the NBA.

anyone have a link to this year's basketball intro?

Kye Clark 7 years, 10 months ago

I assume you mean our intro and not theirs. If so, this is from last year (and one of the better quality ones I've found):

I'm sure if you search youtube you can find one from this year, but often the quality is pretty awful. I think either this site, billself.com, etc should have the intro videos on file for fans to watch.

Kye Clark 7 years, 10 months ago

And this one is a year older still, but it is by far the best quality one I've found. I also happen to like it a little bit better. The Julian Wright 360, showing the pass from Sherron on "Mario's Miracle", the McMorris dunk was pretty epic, a shot of Aaron Miles (one of my favorite Jayhawks).

Again, I know it's not this year's, but if you're just looking to psyche yourself up, these will do the trick!

ancient_hawk 7 years, 10 months ago

This is precious: All the crap the MUUs give us about our first 2 national titles via the Helms Foundation. Then you go on their athletic site, and read about their "20 All-Americans". 8 of them were selected retroactively by......the Helms Foundation. bwahahahahaha!!

Three guys, a Tiger, a Jayhawk, and a Wildcat are out walking along the beach together one day. They come across a lantern and a Genie pops out of it. “I will give you each one wish, that’s three wishes total,” says the Genie. The Wildcat says, “I am studying to be a farmer, my dad was a farmer and my son will also farm. I want the land in Manhattan to forever be fertile. With a blink of the Genie’s eye, ‘POOF’ the land across Manhattan was made forever fertile. The Tiger was amazed, so he said, “I want a wall around Columbia, so that no one can come into our precious city.” Again, with a blink of the Genie’s eye, ‘POOF’ there was a huge wall around Columbia. The Jayhawk says, “I’m very curious. Please tell me more about this wall.” The Genie explains, “Well, it’s about 150 feet high, 50 feet thick and nothing can get in or out.” The Jayhawk says, “Fill it up with water.”

dynamitehawk 7 years, 10 months ago

Just watching Kentucky and South Carolina. It just occurred to me: MU left the big 12 to play with Cocks.

nuleafjhawk 7 years, 10 months ago

What's going to happen when they play at South Carolina and SUCK ??

lionhawkward 7 years, 10 months ago

Classic, one thing that wont be missed are the argumentative posts with the fizzou alimni.. We have plenty of Great elementary schools in Lawrence that would provide more insightful discussions....LOL

WilburNether 7 years, 10 months ago

Choke City. Had the game won -- and choked.

BigJayhawkPhan 7 years, 10 months ago

It just drives me crazy that our worst team in 25 years is still better than their best team in 25 years and that's the parting picture -- a LOSS in meth-head land. Those losers!! I'm going to enjoy every second of the SEC prison-raping they WILL receive.
