MU for a fact is better than KU, but I have to admit that KU is better than MU in basketball.
RightIAm

Con

While we both agree that KU is better than MU in basketball - I will be arguing that KU is also better than MU in football.

I would like to suggest that when we say 'better' we are referring to MU and KU's respective abilities to compete in football, rather than any off-the-field considerations.

I will allow you to start by making your arguments, which I will then respond to in round 2.

MU has won the past few tournaments by a long shot.

I also think that MU has a better college so that might affect to how the football players play.
RightIAm

Con

In the last 14 years it's been 7-7. KU also have a better historical record - 22 titles, next to MU's 6. MU have got lucky in the last few meetings.

Furthermore, I feel that KU is actually a better college, having spoken to people who've attended both. It sounds to me like MU might enjoy a slightly better reputation, but it's all talk - the standards of education at KU are better.

You saying that "MU has only won because of luck" is an opinion.

I, myself would give MU a GREAT reputation.
RightIAm

Con

It is however fact that the last 14 meetings have seen a 7-7 split. I have watched all of these games - and particularly in recent years, I have felt that KU has been hard-done by, because of circumstances surrounding the games, unfair refereeing decisions and so on.

Furthermore, the quality of the college to educate is not especially relevant, although I do generally feel that KU's teaching standards outweigh the more reputable MU's teaching standards - and sportingly - KU is clearly a better college.

I will summarise my key points.

KU has a better historical record in football than MU.
In the last 14 meetings, KU and MU have won 7 games each. I feel KU has been unfortunate not to win more of these recent meetings.
KU is a better sporting college than MU, and its basketball team's success shows how successful it has been in other areas - and this has really helped the football side of things.
Vote CON.

Given the wetness of the eyes and the blinking action, however, the glue might not even be able to dry correctly.

I don't think it would, most glues are not based on water, only paper and children's glues are.

My eyes are nailed to the TV once I start watching a KU game.

Besides, the wetness of your eyes would probably make the glue ineffective - showing that MU are not as entertaining to watch as KU.

My eyes are glued to the tv the second I start watching a MU game!

I'm a Missourian, man. Can't help it, it's running in the blood. MO Tigers, KC Chiefs, ST. Cardinals
are my teams for life.
