It’s only going to get more intense over the next nine days.

With Friday’s official announcement of the exhibition men’s basketball game between Kansas and Missouri on Oct. 22 at the Sprint Center, fans of the schools have started trash talking. Actually, it began Thursday when news broke that the schools were talking about playing the game.

Naturally, the number of comments picked up Friday. Here is a sample of what fans are saying:
