There's a thin line between a good joke and just being outright mean and rude. Nebraska is hovering that line.

It seems safe to say there is no love lost between former Big 12 rivals Kansas and Nebraska.

The Jayhawks went to Lincoln, Neb. for a matchup against the Cornhuskers Saturday, and in the media guide for the game, Nebraska had a little fun at the expense of Kansas.

In what is either the most perfect example of high-level trolling or the most recent case of unnecessary bullying, Nebraska had some interesting comments about each member of the Kansas starting five, or "The Birdies" as they were called.

While the information provided about Devonte' Graham (who still orders off the kids menu at restaurants), Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (the only person in college basketball with a name harder to pronounce than Nebraska's Thorir Thorbjarnarson) and Udoka Azubuike (one of only a dozen passionate Kansas football fans) provided a good laugh, the lines about Lagerald Vick (Michael Vick's cousin/dog breeder) and Malik Newman (the guy who tried to save Mississippi State's program before getting the coach fired and transferring) seemed to cross the line.

Whether or not the jokes actually went too far, the Jayhawks ended up with the last laugh as they picked up a 73-72 win on the road.
