I guess if there's a team that can beat Miami, it's San Antonio?
We're a microwave society. We want it right now.

In our immediate gratification society, everybody wants to point fingers.

It all goes back to what we all get judged on - wins and losses - because that's what counts in our world and in our culture of immediate satisfaction and what have you done for me today.
-- Trey Hillman, September 15, 2009
I know what the fans want. They want it, and they want it now. Instant gratification just doesn't work in baseball.
-- Ned Yost, May 18, 2013
and that's what they call a culture of losing.
nothing will change until the people at the top change.
This is definitely a change from the top down situation. I would be more than happy to see the Glass family sell to owners who know something about baseball and who won't tolerate losing. I remember when the Brett brothers tried to buy the franchise, but it sold to the Glass gang instead. I was so disappointed, and remain so today.
Weiss is trying to live off of JUCOS and transfers

quite staggering really
By your own definition, there is basketball, football and other sports you don't care about unless you are winning. You guys know it's the big 2 and then everything else. Shaggin' balls, gettin' to second base... you guys wouldn't care but for the fact you have a good catcher and your boys slammed a lot of big bombs this year.
Why is a former NFLer trying to rob people? Doesn't make sense. I don't care what kind of demons you have, should never resort to violence.
When will beems tell us all to eff off and show back up in November? We should have a gameday clock for when beems quits and comes back to celebrate a minor achievement.
I'm excited for KU basketball next season, guise. Maybe this will break their streak of one and done flops.
Yeah, McLemore was a huge bust.
He was draft eligible last year. Two and done.
He's a one and done. Played one year at KU as a freshman and then went pro.
How much should we be willing to pay for a men's golf coach? Are we paying the going rate now and still not getting results, or are we low balling coaches and using that money on sports that matter instead?
KU has multiple Big 12 titles this year in other sports
Yeah but I'm talking about sports that actually matter
Winning Big 12 titles doesn't matter to anyone outside the Big 12. K-State fans over hype it because your shitty program never wins anything on a national level. Your football team got blown out by Oregon, and your basketball team lost in the 1st round to LaSalle. Your program is a joke and couldn't be a worse representative for the Big 12.
KSU's participation in the Fiesta Bowl netted the Big12 approximately $18MM.
KU's BB team will net the Big12 an estimated $4.63MM over the next 6 years. The kicker is what the FB team cost the Big12. Mid-major teams play BCS conference teams and it's expected that the BCS conference teams beat them. It's expected of them so that those mid-majors don't have enough wins to crash the BCS. The KU FB team didn't do it's part against Northern Illinois, allowing them to take OU's spot on the BCS. That cost the Big12 $6.2MM in additional bowl payout.
KSU's impact on Big12 post-season revenue: $18.25MM
KU's impact on Big12 post-season revenue: $1.57MM
