Series standings[edit]

Rowing[edit]

It has been brought up before as to the inclusion of Women's Rowing and not Men's Crew, or taking Rowing off the list.

Here are some facts regarding Rowing's inclusion...

1...At KSU and KU the sport of Women's Rowing is school sponsored. (Men's Crew is a club at both schools)

2...Both universities list Women's Rowing on their official athletic websites as a sport. (Men's Crew is not)

3...Women's Rowing is an NCAA Varsity Sport at both Universities. (KU was the first to add it in 1995, K-State was second in 1996.)

If this sport is to be removed we need to develop criteria on how to include sports.

Rowing standings[edit]

Since the media guides for the schools don't set forth the series standings for rowing, I thought I'd share my research on the standings in the rowing series between the two schools. I compiled this from newspapers (Lawrence Journal World) and the schools' athletic websites. KSU has their historic results posted here: [1]

Here are the results.
Fall (formerly Sunflower Showdown):
2010 KSU
2009 -- (weather)
2008 -- (weather)
2007 KSU
2006 KU
2005 KU
2004 KSU
2003 KSU
2002 KSU
2001 KU
2000 KU
1999 KU
1998 KSU
1997 KSU

Spring (formerly Kansas Cup):
2013 KSU
2012 KSU
2011 KSU
2010 KU
2009 KSU
2008 KSU
2007 KSU
2006 KSU
2005 KSU
2004 KU
2003 KU
2002 KU
2001 KU
2000 KU
1999 KU
1998 KSU
1997 KU

I'm only seeing one match-up a year now, and this says what Kansas Cup is now the Sunflower Showdown.[2] Anyway, KSU won in April 2012 to even the Spring standings to 8-8 according to my research. (The linked article says KSU leads 8-7 but I think it's missing a year...?) -Kgwo1972 (talk) 19:30, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
KSU won the Sunflower Showdown on March 30, 2013. -Kgwo1972 (talk) 02:57, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
