Will we start a Border Battle competition with our "permanent" rivals to the south? Certainly too early to know, but it is never too early to get acquianted with all things Hog.

Summary:

With a couple of hiccups, and certainly none lately (2005-06), the MU/kU Border Series was never really close. I think a new battle opponent in Arkansas would be just fine. They are a bit ahead of where MU is at this point, but not so far that it would not be outside of reason to be able to compete with them fairly quickly. All in all, the Hogs have great tradition (and an even greater game-day atmosphere from what I hear) with baseball and are really impressive throughout all their track programs. Really, it seems like 2009-10 may have been an outlier given the strength from the past two years. But hey, it is the SEC, you come to expect this kind of strength and depth from school to school.
