Kyle, I would agree totally that they aren't the no. 2 team in the country. They will struggle unless they have another big man. I have another reason to be a Jayhawk fan, my daughter got accepted to KU with the goal of being a pediatric nurse practitioner. So I am going to be invested in that school (proud dad!). Can you tell me where Kstate ranked in football before Snyder went to Manhattan? I believe they were known as the worst D-1 team!
KU will win the Big 12 again, they will make at least the sweet 16 again, they will finish the year ranked in or near the top ten again... K-State hangs their hat on football, but they'll never touch KU's basketball success. How long before K-State wins a football national championship? KU threatens pretty much every year, you can say they fall short, but they're in the conversation. When was the last time K-State's football national championship chances were discussed on ESPN???
2012, James. Apples to oranges comparing football to basketball titles though. Neither of KU’s modern titles came as a consensus #1 or #2, which you had to be until 3 years ago in CFB. If there was a 16 team playoff dating back 20 years or so in CFB it’s pretty conceivable the Cats would’ve played a roll in a handful.
K-state fans don't realize that if you leave the Midwest nobody even knows who k-state is, Kentucky state? It's not like the SEC or any major conference is concerned with them. State had some success in the 90's but haven't done anything since then. Congrats on the toilet bowl game nobody will watch or care about.. KU is nationally recognized and always in the top ten in the nation. Yes our football team sucks but at least we are successful in something.. And our fans don't have to wear purple lol
Gobbler you're right KU has to get rid of that wildcat hack!!!! I think KSU played KU bad in football just to give Zenger "we're improving" fire power. Just like KU let KSU stay in the games last year so the wildcats will keep Bam.
Boomer Sooner baby! Now on to the CFP Rose Bowl game to dominate another team ranked 3 on New Years Day. So much offensive production that I swear I saw Baker Mayfield drain a 3 ptr. too?
No “shocker” here as I knew all along this OU team was severely underrated. Sooners completely carved up the Shockers “play angry” defense. Sooners had more steals, more blocks, less fouls and less turnovers.
Most amazing thing about today was not that OU won, but how they controlled the game pretty much start to finish and Shockers got no closer than a two possession game. Second most amazing thing was how WSU seems to find an almost bald 20 year old white guy to play every year?
Look out Jayhawks ....Trae Young picked OU over KU so he could be on the team that breaks KU’s Conf. Champ winning streak.
Then again, I've done a little more reading... Dok is hurt, and he's their only true big man, Lightfoot is talented but weak. According to what I read, Dok's back won't get any worse, but he'll have to play through the pain, it's probably not going to get any better either. Until Desousa and Preston get eligible, it's gonna be ugly at times. Now I'm really glad we didn't bet on the Big 12!!!!
Other than Dok, it is a weak pathetic team. Average body weight around 160 lbs. They can't defend or rebound. We need bodies like the Morris boys and T Rob. Quit recruiting girls. First thing I would do is make Vick cut his hair. I am a lifetime KU fan but this team has no flavor or personality, hard to like.
I don't think he will leave now. They are in a power conference and he doesn't have a football program to compete with. Duke, Kentucky, KU, North Carolina, Michigan State are about the only schools who have jobs that would be appealing. Wichita State has out performed the rest of the field since 2012.
Weber cost Kstate dearly with those 2 stupid time outs. They were not going to review that out of bounds call had he not called time out with a 1:15 left. He should have saved them for the end of the game, it cost them a possession. Then he should not have called time out after the first free throw by Newman. Call it on a miss or push it to half court then call time out with about 12 seconds left. Stupid clock management.
Webber is such a panzie, I'm SO glad he's K-State's coach!! My brother-in-law, a K-State grad, is counting the days until Webber is dismissed. I'm counting the days until K-State grad, Sheehan Zenger, is dismissed!!!!
Twenty-trae to nine at this juncture...Cat's ain't half bad this year. Look at the "box" for the "Showdown"...had your sorry donkeys. Overzealous guard and a weak coach on our side but hey...we had a 10% chance according to ESPNah
WV made you look like the panzie's you are in that first 1/2...go plant a raised bed for your NIT inauguration
Hawks played very well last night. First time I have seen someone from the Big 12 wear out WV. They were dead tired in the last 8 minutes. Kstate does not have the winning tradition to pull off close games. Losing is a hard habit to break. They will always be third fiddle in this state.
