Braggin' Rights coaches tell their story

BILL SELF (Braggin' Rights record 3-0)

What is your favorite memory from the Border War? "Winning all three games."

What's the one thing people don't realize about the game that you experienced as a coach? "I'm not sure there was any one thing that I learned as a coach. The fans taught me a lot about the game in that I always disliked Missouri and it was easy for me to make it the most important nonconference game on our schedule. The way it is split 50-50, like the OU-Texas football-type setting, it was an atmosphere that was probably better than any NCAA tournament because everybody in the building had a vested interest."
