The winner of any conference is the only one that automatically gets the bid, but if another bowl needs a team they can pick whoever they want, for some reason the orange bowl committee picked Kansas because apparently they have a better fan following..
You're on crack. Fan following? We are talking football, right? KU was invited to the Orange Bowl to destroy Va Tech because they were the only one loss team in the country, not because the drive from Lawrence to Miami is an easy one.
You must be a Mizzou fan. Did you hear any whispers from KU about winning the National Championship this year? Any Hesiman talk? No, we understood the significance of last year, and took it for what it was. It was the greatest year in KU football in the last 25 years. As it turns out, it was also the greatest year in Mizzou football as well.
Want to bet on who has the better record in '09?
Before I respond I just want to completely agree 100% with megs last post..
Yeah, I am a Mizzou fan. Had you looked 2 inches to the left as you were reading my post you would have seen my location is Mizzou, meaning I am a student there, but I wouldn't expect a KU fan to be able to comprehend a thing like that. Second, Meg answered most of your post as I would have. And it was a fact that the Orange Bowl Committee picked KU partly because of the supposed fan following of the JAYHAWK..gay.. I am not denying it had to do with you only having 1 loss but it was to Mizzou who beat you and only lost to the eventual big 12 champs in Oklahoma. Everyone understood the significance of KU's run last year, they were a big 12 team playing one of the easiest schedules in college football last year, if Mizzou had been playing that schedule we would have had 1 loss to and it would have been in the big 12 championship to Oklahoma.
I will literally bet you $100 that Mizzou has a better record next year than Kansas, honestly.
