Kansas

Bill Self won't promise continuation of KU-MU series if Tigers bolt Big 12 for SEC | KUsports.com
Hate to see it go, but if the Tigers move there isn't a lot of benefit to us continuing the football contest and they certainly aren't going to play us in basketball if we don't return the favor on the football field. It will be a sad day but probably necessary.

College Football

Somebody doesn't like losing.

LSU is Yoda, Oklahoma is Darth Vader in Stars Wars Power Rankings - Andy Staples - SI.com
Bensa should like this. Pretty sure we have a few other Star Wars fans out there too. Hate to say it, but I've never quite gotten the Star Wars thing.
