Shockers
« on: November 27, 2013, 10:40:40 AM »
Wichita State is the best team in the state this year and it's really not even close. 

They have the better of the two Wiggins bros, Baker is a better shooter than anybody on our or ku's roster, Early is probably the best player to step foot in Kansas since Beasley and VanVleet is a very solid point guard...

Even though it'll be a rough year for the boys in purple, I'm glad to see baby bro having some success even if it rips the hearts out of lil bro to play second fiddle to an MVC team.

One of the best parts of "TSC" is the leeway that the "S" creates in matters like this.

I wish there was an option for mods to not allow some people to start threads.

My squawk nephew who I tried to turn EMAW on Saturday told me Wichita St should be in the Big XII. I told him they have no football team and he was perplexed.

Hey, it could happen.  Could schedule the football games, line 'em up and then just take the W.  Sorta like we did w/ TCU  :alleyoop:

I consider myself a casual fan of WSU but the majority of their fanbase has a horrible case of little man syndrome. Like makes KU fans seem super relaxed and confident and lacking a need for validation. It would almost be worth it to add them as a basketball only member just for the BBSing gold that would ensue.

Sorry about that, SquawkNation...  I'll run everything past you henceforth.

I hate 'em. Can't stand them.

And yes, clearly this state's best team.

I think too many Emaws have some deep-seated insecurities when it comes to Wichita State.

Why can't some of you give them their due?

They'll never be a threat to us, or even play us in the near future.

Be happy for them, it's the only bright spot in the most underachieving town in the Midwest.

Mine goes back to when we played them and their chump coach Turgeon. And I haven't gotten over it.

Their fans are the worst, but I like Baker for personal reasons. His dad use to sit by my broadcasts when I did his games in HS. Now to the hardwood. With the voice of your beavers, Heath Fanning! :ROFL:

Squawks have a pretty sweet thread over on the phog right now asking if Baker should transfer to KU and walk on?  :flush:

every shocker student i've ever met is actually a squawk fan. they don't give a crap about wsu. that said, i think wsu basketball plays hard and is a great team that deserves better than the shitty students that pretend to like them. also, commuter school

 I've seen the opposite. 

Its no secret that the Shocker fan base as a whole hates KU because they won't play them.  The negative attitude towards the hawks is written about in the papers and talked about on the sport shows.

oscar recruited Orris over VanVleet at Illinois.  VanVleet was more highly regarded nationally and locally.  It wasn't just Gray.  Very bizarre oscar fixation on a kid he ran off after one season.
