LAWRENCE, Kan. — Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little commented on Sunday about Missouri's decision to leave the Big 12 Conference. The statement appeared on the University of Kansas website:

"We're sorry to see a century-old conference rivalry end. Missouri's decision may have implications for fans and for the Kansas City area, but it won't affect the long-term strength of the Big 12."

Well the KU and MU rivalry pre-dates the formation of the Big 8. If KU is concerned about KC, then they would agree to continue the rivalry with MU as a non-conference game. If KU refuses, then the death of the rivalry is on them.
