My first post on Home Theater Forum, and it's about college football, go figure. Okay, here is what I don't understand. Why is there only one Division 1 football team in the state of Missouri? I did some research on nearby states with similar population figures and here is what I came up with: -Missouri, 5.5 million people, 1 team, Missouri -Louisiana, 4.4 million, 5? teams, Tulane, LSU, LA Tech, UL Monroe, UL Layette -Tennessee, 5.6 million, 4 teams, Memphis, Vandy, Middle TN, UT Knoxville -Arkansas, 2.6 million, 2 teams, Arkansas, Arkansas State -Oklahoma, 3.4 million, 3 teams, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Tulsa -Kentucky, 4 million, 2 teams, Kentucky, Louisville -Colorado, 4.3 million, 3 teams, Colorado, Colorado State, Air Force Now if the Missouri Tigers were a dominating force in college football, or if the state was considered a hotbed of high school talent I could understand why they were the only team. But, and no offense to the school or the state, they aren't really in the top echelon of either category. Is football, or college sports in general, just not a priority in the state. I know KC and St. Louis have some very good fans for their pro teams, could this be the reason why? Anyone who's got any ideas or answers thank you. While it's not the most pressing issue in my life I've wondered about this for a while now.
