Border War “Hate Week” News, Notes and Quotes Daily Links 11-22-11

Whether or not it is the last MU-KU game for the foreseeable future, one thing is certain. These teams hate each other. Last year, it was wide receiver TJ Moe sounding off with, “I hate them. I don’t think it matters where you’re from. I’ve been a Mizzou fan my whole life and from day one…every time I see a “Kansas” shirt, I just want to burn it.”

On Monday Moe let his teammates do the talking and Senior tight end Andrew Jones had his turn.

“I don’t feel sorry for them at all (about their 2-9, 0-8 Big 12 record),” said the Smithville native. “I wouldn’t feel sorry for them at all if they go 0-12 every year for the rest of their existence.”

On Saturday defensive end Michael Sam sounded off, “Kansas. It’s a big game not just for us but for our whole state. And we’re just gonna go out there and beat their Jayhawks’ ass.”

Yesterday Missouri interim head coach/defensive coordinator Dave Steckel said, “My brother went to Kansas,” Steckel said. “I love my brother. I don’t talk to him this week.”
