TODAY'S QUESTION: Will you attend Missouri-Kansas at Arrowhead?

Friday, November 19, 2010 | 1:25 p.m. CST

For Missouri's final home game, against Kansas State, the weather was cloudy and the winds were brisk and stinging. The game started at 11:30 a.m. and 63,310 spectators were in the stands.

A few years ago, 63,310 would be a great crowd at Memorial Stadium. But for a successful, bowl-bound, then 7-2 football team to be playing its final home game of the season in front of a less-than-sellout crowd is noteworthy.

Missouri technically has another home game this season. After Thanksgiving, the Tigers will host Kansas at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. The Jayhawks are having a miserable season under first-year coach Turner Gill and they play No. 10 Oklahoma State this weekend. By the time the Jayhawks arrive back in Kansas City, basketball season will be in full swing in Lawrence, at least in the hearts and minds of Kansas fans. 

The KU-MU game is slated to be another morning kickoff — 11:30 a.m. The weather, like most late November days in the plains, will likely be less than ideal. If 63,310 only arrived in Columbia, how many will make the trip to see two teams who have had their season's fates sealed by kickoff?

The conditions are ripe for a poorly attended game at Arrowhead. 

So, will you be attending the Missouri-Kansas game at Arrowhead Stadium?
