Kentucky has the Applachian, Missouri has the Ozarks. Kentucky has hillbillies, Missouri has hillbillies. Kentucky is often looked down upon, Missouri knows the feeling. UK dominates basketball in the SEC, Missouri knows what it's like to be dominated by a program with a U and a K. Missouri is looking to replace its most hated rival KU and UK might just fill the bill. My KU alum son sent me this Kansas City Star piece on Missouri in the SEC and parallels to UK including names like Adolph, Phog, Joe B. and even Matt Jones.
