Kansas and Missouri will renew their men’s basketball rivalry starting next year, the schools announced Monday night. Vahe Gregorian and Sam Mellinger join host Blair Kerkhoff to discuss why this happened, why it’s important and why we love this rivalry. The columnists also use tonight’s World Series opener between the Astros and Nationals to remember what happened in Kansas City five years ago. It started with a magical Wild Card game and ended with the tying run in the final game 90 feet away from home plate.
