other than Missouri. Most people have a pride for their region, but should also be able to respect the regional pride of others. I am fifth generation Miissourian, but my maternal ancestors came from Kentucky and my paternal ancestors came from Pennsylvania. I have ancestors that wore blue, and ones that wore gray in the in Civil War.
We are all connected and should be able to respect one another. The tradition and pride of my alma mater, University of Missouri, is not dependent upon conference affiliation. And I am pretty sure I qualify as true blood, old Missouri!
