Apparently, Missouri is being a little bratty about their Liberty Bowl matchup. Per Action Network...
quote:

The Border War between Missouri and Kansas has been dormant since 2011, but there was an opportunity for the iconic rivalry to resume in the Liberty Bowl this month.

There was just one problem: Missouri didn’t want to play Kansas, so the matchup will not happen, industry sources told Action Network.

The Jayhawks, who are making their first bowl appearance since 2008, were not opposed to playing the Tigers in a bowl, sources said.

Schools provide their bowl preferences and the conferences, bowls and schools usually come to an agreement whenever possible. It’s not unusual for schools to request not playing certain opponents in the postseason, sources said.

The Liberty Bowl is one of three that matches SEC vs. Big 12 opponents. The other two are the Sugar and Texas bowls. Missouri and Kansas are both 6-6.

Why wouldn’t Mizzou want to play Kansas in football? Seems like an easy win.

Didn’t do UK any damn good. We absolutely did not want to play Iowa for the second year in a row.

If I were you I would shut up! MU got to play Wake Forrest. Not too bad and it is in Tampa! Arkansas took MU spot. No big deal!

This a fake leak from Bill Self to his knob slobbering lackey Brett McMurphy. KU refused to continue the series.

Football is what KU refused to continue the series! Basketball is in KU favor and more likely win the game. Why not football too? Because KU has been dodging to continue the series in football.

* Basketball is in KU favor and the team is more likely to win the game. Why not play football too? KU has been dodge to continue the series in football because they aren't very good in football for 10 years!

Guys, he was rehabilitated at Liberty under the righteous tutelage of Mrs. Falwell, under the watchful eye of Mr. Falwell. He’s totally good now.

You can't force the Players to play, so, if you force a TEAM to play, perhaps there will be no Players on the team at bowl-time, so, the Team will have to forfeit the game and the Bowl isn't played? Might as well just let the Team opt out in peace.

Supposedly Missouri doesn’t want to play Kansas in football because Kansas won’t play them in basketball.

Have you seen any MU-KU football games in the regular game since MU left for the SEC? Wonder why? KU refuses to play MU as an out of conference game in any of those years when MU left the Big 12 conference.

“Wone” is an annoying term, even when used “correctly.” Doubly-so when used incorrectly.

Frickin’ Misery, errrrrrrrrrrr Missouri can just stay the frick home then! Bowl games (below the CFP) are meaningless exhibitions, and besides getting young guys more practice time for the following season they are useless.

How the frick do 6-6 teams get to dictate their bowls? And, we are 6-6. I'm just glad we get to bowl, IDGAF who we play or where it is. Misery is a bitch. Their super bowl was beating us to become bowl eligible.

Exactly what I was thinking. They are fortunate that someone wants them. SEC should step in or kick them out and let someone else in.

Congrats on the Memphis Bowl against Kansas. Missouri dodges a bullet on going to that Bowl. Good Luck. Hope the weather would be nice in Memphis on the 28th of December.
