There was no shortage of Mizzou hate Dec. 13 when the University of Kansas played the University of Utah at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo.
Thousands of Kansas fans gathered, ironically in Missouri, to watch the Jayhawks play.
Kansas and Missouri haven’t played one another since 2012, when Missouri left the Big 12 Conference for the Southeastern Conference.
But just mention the University of Missouri to a die-hard Jayhawk and you’ll get a heated response. To fans, it’s more than just a sports rivalry. It's part of their identities.
