Old hate dies hard.
Saturday is homecoming at Missouri, and one fan hasn’t let go of a now-defunct rivalry. Look at the image below, courtesy of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Dave Matter, of a Tigers fan driving in a parade with a sign that reads, “WE STILL HATE KANSAS.”

The Missouri-Kansas rivalry was a heated matchup before the Tigers moved to the SEC starting in the 2012 season. Missouri officials have spoken about their desire to revive the series, but Kansas officials have remained cool on the possibility.
As tough as this year has been for the Tigers, Missouri fans should take solace in the fact that Kansas remains in awful shape. The Jayhawks are 1-5 and going nowhere fast. The Tigers will try to improve to 3-4 against Middle Tennessee.
There’s no word on what Kellen Winslow thinks of Kansas.
