The Border War (officially branded as the M&I Bank Border Showdown for sponsorship reasons) is the name of an intense rivalry between the University of Missouri and University of Kansas athletic teams, the Missouri Tigers and the Kansas Jayhawks.

Contents

Background

The intense rivalry between the two universities can be traced to the open violence involving anti-slavery and pro-slavery elements that took place in the Kansas Territory and the western frontier towns of Missouri throughout the 1850s. These incidents were attempts by Missouri (a slave state) to influence whether Kansas would enter the Union as a free or slave state. The term Bleeding Kansas is often used to refer to the pre-war conflict, which continued into the Civil War and culminated with the Lawrence Massacre. SI.com supervising producer Dan George summed up the rivalry by stating "It's more than the schools -- it's a state thing going back to the Civil War, when William Quantrill's Confederate guerillas burned Lawrence and murdered nearly 200 people. Neither Missouri nor Kansas folks have forgotten it."[1] Those on the Missouri side are quick to point out that the Jayhawkers were guilty of the same things - crossing into Missouri, leading brutal raids and burning towns, and that Quantrill was part of a group that almost burnt down Columbia due to it being a Union stronghold.

The early athletic matches between the University of Kansas and the University of Missouri helped to aid both states in the healing process following the civil war.

Over the years, the series has developed into one of the bitterest and most hateful rivalries in college sports. Even the coaches have gotten into the rivalry. Former Kansas football coach Don Fambrough, when urged by doctors to head across the state line to Kansas City, Missouri, for medical attention, exclaimed "I'll die first!"[2]: not to be outdone, Missouri's former basketball coach Norm Stewart would traditionally have his players stay in Kansas City, Missouri, before playing at Kansas, going so far as to require the team bus to buy its gasoline at a Missouri filling station and reprimanding players who ate in Kansas, as he did not want to put any money into Kansas' economy.

The 2007 football season brought the origins of the rivalry between the two states back into the spotlight. A t-shirt created by a Missouri alumnus gained national attention with its reference to Quantrill's Raid of 1863.[3] The shirt depicted the burning of Lawrence in 1863 following the raid of William Quantrill and his Bushwhackers against the Jayhawkers of Kansas. The image of Lawrence burning was paired with the word “Scoreboard” and a Mizzou logo. On the back of the shirts, William Quantrill was quoted, saying "Our cause is just, our enemies many." Some Kansas fans interpreted these shirts as supporting slavery. KU supporters returned fire with a shirt depicting abolitionist John Brown with the words, “Kansas: Protecting America from Missouri since 1854.”[4]

Name Change

The 2007 Border Showdown logo

In 2004 its name was officially changed from Border War to Border Showdown. KU athletic director Lew Perkins stated, "We feel that in the aftermath of September 11, 2001, and the ensuing events around the world, it is inappropriate to use the term ‘war' to describe intercollegiate athletics events."[5] Players, students, alumni, and fans have failed to adopt the new name of the rivalry, and even media outlets such as Sports Illustrated[1] and NBC[2] continue to refer to the rivalry as the Border War. Former Kansas coach Don Fambrough expressed his disapproval for the rivalry's politically correct "Border Showdown" rebranding by saying, "It's a goddamn war. And they started it!"[1]

Beginning in the 2002–2003 season, the series was memorialized in a sponsored contest, under which points were awarded for athletic contests between the two schools. Only sports where both schools compete are eligible for the contests, and because Kansas fields fewer teams than Missouri, several of Missouri's sports (such as gymnastics, men's swimming and wrestling) do not count in the Border Showdown statistics. Bonus points are awarded for matchups that take place in post-season competition (Big 12 or NCAA tournaments). Between 0.5 and 3.0 points are awarded per matchup, with approximately 24-27 matchups taking place per academic year. The Border Showdown moniker is applied most publicly to the annual football and basketball games. Missouri currently leads the Showdown series 5-2.[6] Missouri won the 2008 showdown, 24-15.[6]

Football

The Missouri-Kansas football series is the second-most-played rivalry in college football history. The teams first matched up in football on October 31, 1891. Both KU and Big 12 record books list the series all-time as 55-54-9 with KU leading, however MU record books list the series as Missouri leading 55-54-9.[7] There have been 9 ties in the 118 games played.[8][9]

Through the end of the 2009 season, Missouri has an all-time football record of 612-511-52 (.545), with 26 bowl games and 12 bowl victories, while Kansas (2008) has an all-time record of 563-543-58 (.509), with 6 bowl victories in 12 bowl games.

  • The Tigers and Jayhawks first met on the gridiron on Halloween in 1891 in Kansas City, Missouri. The Jayhawks pulled out a 22-10 win in that first game.
  • In 1909–1910, both squads entered the game undefeated (Missouri at 6-0-1, and Kansas at 8-0). Two dropkick field goals propelled the Tigers to a 12-6 victory, an undefeated season, and a Missouri Valley title.
  • 19 of the first 20 games were played in Kansas City, with the 1907 contest played in St. Joseph. In 1911, the game began to be played on the respective college campuses, where it would be played (with the exception of 1944 and 1945, when it was played in Kansas City, MO) for the next 94 years. The 1911 game was played in Columbia, Missouri, and alumni from MU were asked to "come home" to Rollins Field, giving rise to the tradition of homecoming. That first homecoming game resulted in a 3-3 tie between the schools.
  • Kansas held the early advantage in the series, with a 14-4-4 advantage from 1891 through 1922. The Tigers rebounded with a 10-5-1 record in the next 16 years, but Kansas led 5-0-1 during the next 6 years (1939–1944), holding the Tigers scoreless each year.
  • The Tigers led the series for the next 36 years from 1945 through 1980, holding an advantage over Kansas of 20-13-3. During that period, Kansas had two different 3 game winning streaks, while Missouri held winning streaks of 5 games, 4 games, and 3 games (3 times).
  • Since 1981 Kansas led the series over Missouri, holding a 16-13 edge. Since the inception of the Big 12 Kansas leads the series 7-6. With their 41-39 victory in 2009, Missouri won the latest game.
  • In late 2006, the schools signed a two-year agreement to play the game at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. While the capacity of the Kansas City Chiefs home ground at Arrowhead (79,451) is much bigger than either Memorial Stadium in Lawrence (50,000) or Faurot Field (71,004), many fans of both schools, and merchants in both Columbia and Lawrence, have expressed reservations about the move, since it requires each to give up a home game. While a much larger percentage of all Jayhawk fans are in the Kansas City metropolitan area than the percentage of all Tiger fans, and many Missouri season ticket holders come from St. Louis, attendance is expected to be relatively even between both schools. In 2008 the Arrowhead series was renewed through at least 2012.[11]
The 2007 Border War game between Missouri and Kansas at Arrowhead Stadium
  • On November 24, 2007, the two teams entered the game both ranked in the top five in the nation: Kansas at #2 and Missouri at #3. On the heels of #1 LSU's loss the day before, Missouri won the game 36-28 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, with a near-record 80,537 people (the second-largest crowd in stadium history) in attendance and the largest TV audience to watch any 2007 regular season game, and therefore became #1 in both the Bowl Championship Series and Associated Press polls.

Indian War Drum

The winner of the football game receives the informally arranged Indian War Drum traveling trophy.[12]

The drum trophy originated in 1937 when MU's Kansas City Alumni Association in cooperation with the Kansas University Lettermen's Association decided to present an authentic Indian tom-tom drum each Thanksgiving to the winner of the Kansas-Missouri football game. The decision was finalized at annual Homecoming luncheon of the M Men's Club at Rothwell Gymnasium on November 13, 1937. The MU Kansas City Alumni Association made arrangements for the drum to be built by Osage Indians, because they were more representative of the two states than any other tribe.[13] The drum remained in Missouri's possession for the first few years until the trophy was briefly forgotten during war time. The tradition resumed on an annual basis in 1947, and the MU and KU circles of Omicron Delta Kappa served as caretakers of the drum throughout most of its history.[14][15]

When the trophy disappeared in the 1980s, the Taos Indians of New Mexico built a new one. The original trophy was later recovered in a Read Hall basement in Columbia under a pile of boxes and it is now in the College Football Hall of Fame.

In 1999, at the urging of Kansas the drum was replaced again with a bass drum and the second drum became the property of the Mizzou Alumni Association.

The Kansas and Missouri athletics and alumni associations’ logos are on opposite ends. While in Missouri the Alumni Association and Student Board now keep the trophy. While in Kansas it is now kept by the Student Alumni Association in the Booth Family Hall of Fame there.

Lamar Hunt trophy

Beginning with the 2007 game at Arrowhead, the winner also receives the Lamar Hunt Trophy, in honor of the late Chiefs owner who long envisioned bringing the Border War to Arrowhead.[16]

1960 Controversy

Although 55-54-9 for MU is the often stated series result, there is an ongoing dispute about whether another win should have been counted for Kansas, making the series 55-54-9 in their favor. The record books of Kansas and the Big 12 state the record as 55-54-9 in Kansas' favor, whereas Missouri does not[7][8]. The Big 8 Conference is ambiguous in their stance on the issue.

On November 19, 1960 Kansas (6-2) won the game against Missouri (9-0, #1 nationally ranked) by a score of 23-7 and was awarded the Big 8 championship. On December 8, 1960, after the season was over, the Big 8 made them forfeit the game due to a newly voted ineligible player, Bert Coan, and the championship was awarded to Missouri. The committee originally declared Coan eligible despite speculation that a trip to an all-star game, paid for by KU donor and AFL co-founder Bud Adams, had convinced him to transfer to the school. Coan was ruled eligible to play by the NCAA and Big 8 committee prior to the game and the NCAA took no part in the subsequent Big 8 forfeit ruling. After the game, Missouri coach Dan Devine was able to change the conference voting rules to require a simple majority vote rather than the 6-2 super majority that was previously needed. Many believe that this move was also spearheaded by Missouri's athletic director Don Faurot. The rule change turned out to be convenient for Missouri, as the vote for Kansas to forfeit games passed by a 5-3 mark at that very same meeting. Additionally, Coan was ruled to be ineligible for another game, against Colorado. Colorado, however, does not count this forfeit as a win in their record books. [17] Kansas also cites a 1999 NCAA subcommittee in its reasoning, where the subcommittee stated that "forfeited contests do not count as a loss and that the game will stand as played on the field."[18]

Ultimately the on the field loss to Kansas cost Missouri the 1960 national championship. The final AP poll was released one week after the game (before the decision was made to force Kansas to forfeit) and the 8-1 Minnesota Gophers took Missouri's spot at number one in the poll, giving them the AP National Championship. Missouri went on to finish the 1960 season 11-0 including a win over Navy in the Orange Bowl, while Minnesota finished 8-2 with a loss in the Rose Bowl.[19]

Basketball

Kansas leads the all-time series, 169-94.

Notable games

  • 1906-07 - Missouri began the basketball border showdown in Columbia against the Jayhawks with a 34-31 triumph, and the following day followed it up with a 34-12 beating. This left Missouri with a 2-0 all time record against basketball's founder, and Kansas' first coach, James Naismith.
  • 1909–1910 - Each of the basketball teams had players from the team's football squad (Tommy Johnson for Kansas, and Ted Hackney for Missouri). The players picked up where they left off from the gridiron, playing a rough and tumble style that, some stories say, caused James Naismith to exclaim, when viewing the second contest between the two, "Oh, my gracious! They are murdering my game!" Kansas won both meetings.
  • 1922 - Kansas and Missouri split their conference games, tying for the Missouri valley title at 15-1. Although Missouri's committee on intercollegiate athletics challenged Kansas to a one game playoff at a neutral site, Phog Allen refused to accept, leaving the decision to Kansas' athletic board and Chancellor, who declined. While no national champions were actually crowned until 1938 when the first national tournament was held, in 1936 Kansas was retroactively awarded a Helms Foundation National Championship. The title was again awarded to Kansas for the 1923 season.
  • 1961 - During a MU loss to Kansas in Lawrence, a bench-clearing fistfight erupts between the two teams. Afterward, KU athletic director Dutch Lonborg suggests the schools discontinue the rivalry. In the nationally-televised return match, won by Missouri, another brawl explodes, this time involving the fans who streamed onto the court after Wayne Hightower threw a punch after being fouled while trying to rebound a missed lay-up. The incidents were seen as a hold-over from that year's football controversy.
  • 1971 - Kansas defeats Missouri, 72-68 in overtime, to win the final game ever played at MU's Brewer Fieldhouse. It brings the Jayhawks one step closer to a perfect Big 8 record (they later beat Nebraska to achieve the 14-0 mark.)
  • 1972 – with Kansas having a poor season and Missouri trying for a Big 8 title, Bud Stallworth scored 50 points in the final regular season game of the year in a 93-80 Kansas win at Allen Fieldhouse.
  • 1987 - MU and KU face off in the title game of the Big Eight Tournament. KU's Danny Manning elbows MU's Derrick Chievous in the eye by accident. Chievous nonetheless leads his Tigers to the 1987 Big Eight Tournament championship. The year also saw almost-identical game-winning field goals from Mizzou freshman guard Lee Coward at the death of two games, the regular-season clash at Hearnes and in the Big Eight Tournament final.
  • 1989 – Missouri registered the largest victory by a visitor in Allen Fieldhouse, winning 91-66 over Kansas under first-year coach Roy Williams.
  • 1990 - The two teams meet in Allen Fieldhouse, with KU #1 and Mizzou #2. The Tigers win, 77-71. Missouri also defeated KU earlier in the year in a #4 vs. #1 game.
  • 1994 - The Tigers twice beat a higher ranked Kansas team, sweeping KU on their way to an undefeated conference record.
  • 1995 – Kansas became the first visiting team to score 100 points in the Hearnes Center, winning 102-89.
  • 1996 - Missouri upsets the #3 Jayhawks in Columbia 77-73. This is the first of three straight years that a top 3 or higher ranked KU team will lose at MU.
  • 1997 - An undefeated Kansas team starring Jacque Vaughn, Paul Pierce and Raef LaFrentz comes into Columbia to face the unheralded Tigers. In a see-saw battle that some have called the greatest MU-KU game ever, Corey Tate's jumper with five seconds left in the second overtime hands Kansas its only regular-season loss, 96-94.
  • 2002 - At halftime of the game at Allen Fieldhouse, KU had a 43-42 lead. The second half belonged to the Jayhawks, as they doubled up the Tigers 62-31 in the final 20 minutes en route to a 105-73 win. Kansas becomes the first and only Big 12 team to go a perfect 16-0 through the conference, concluding the season with a 95-92 win in Columbia.
  • 2003 - During halftime of the KU-Texas basketball game, former MU coach Norm Stewart is presented a rocking chair by KU. A common chant in Allen Fieldhouse during "Stormin' Norm's" days with the Tigers was "Sit Down, Norm!" whenever he would jump off the bench to argue a call. For the first - and only - time ever, the Fieldhouse crowd told him to "sit down, Norm!" good-naturedly.
  • 2004 – Kansas won the final game ever played at the MU's Hearnes Center 84-82 on David Padgett's basket with 2 seconds left.
  • 2006 - Missouri upsets Kansas in overtime when KU's Christian Moody misses two straight free throws with 0.4 seconds remaining in regulation. Afterward, however, the Tigers collapse, Quin Snyder resigns as coach, and in the rematch in Lawrence, Kansas crushes MU 79-46.
  • 2007 - In Lawrence, Kansas freshman Sherron Collins came off the bench for 23 points to thwart Missouri's upset bid in an 80-77 win, the first MU-KU game for new Tiger coach Mike Anderson. In Columbia, the Jayhawks' Julian Wright scored a career-best 33 in a 92-74 win, KU's first victory over the Tigers in Mizzou Arena. The game was played on the one-year anniversary of the resignation of Missouri coach Quin Snyder.
  • 2009 - In the first time the Tigers and Jayhawks met both ranked since 2003, Kansas goes up 30-16 at the half, but a furious Mizzou comeback capped by a Zaire Taylor jumper with :01.3 seconds to play gives Missouri the win in Columbia, 62-60. In the rematch at Allen Fieldhouse, Kansas avenged its loss to Missouri 90-65.

Current series: 169-94, Kansas leads series

* - OT
** - Double OT
NOTE: For games played on neutral floors, KU is listed as the home team, even though this may not have been the case. This is simply due to lack of information on who was the official home team.

Baseball

MU currently leads the baseball series, although the series history is disputed by the two schools. The KU media guide shows that the first game played between the two schools was in 1899[21], while the first recorded game in the MU media guide was in 1901 (the MU guide lists the entire 1899 season as "unknown")[22]. The KU media guide lists the series with MU ahead 195-121-2[23] while the MU media guide lists the tigers ahead 212-123-2[24]. In 2007, the Jayhawks and Tigers added a non-conference game against each other in addition their three-game regular season Big 12 series. The non-conference game was scheduled to be played at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., home of major league baseball's Kansas City Royals. However, the initial meeting was cancelled due to rain. The teams did meet at Kauffman Stadium in 2008, with Kansas winning 3-0.[25] In the 2009 meeting at Kauffman Stadium, Kansas again came away with the victory, 7-3.
