The upper echelon of mediocrity is really all we can expect as k-staters. I would like to hear how we plan to deal with the 80 year old dude making recruiting visits and the "Are you going to live til Im a SR?" argument.

Probably the same way he's dealt with it since 2009. He didn't get old yesterday. What the hell is your point? We're getting more talent now than we've had in the last 15 years.


"more talent now than we've had in the last 15 years." Hilarious. Where are these best in 15 year talents? I want some of what you're smoking. What impact are these top talents having? It's the same ol Snyder song and dance only the song sucks and the tempo is 1/2 of what it was. THe song has always gone sorta like this...  (1) Coach em up. (2) Pluck the juco retards and hope for the best [e.g keep them out of jail and enrolled] and (3) play crappy non con schedule and hope to win.

I usually dont argue with this philosophy because there has never been a season since 1992 (or ever) where if we didnt win our games we wouldn't be natl champs. Right now we're not seeing any of the three with any level of success.

To pile on further, the Big XII is in dire straits and the competition in the last 2-3 years has been lower than ever. If the BIG XII would have stayed healthy over the past several years, this Snyder conversation would be WAY past due by now and Snyder is likely home sipping Ensure and yelling for a pants change.

Snyder's song is old and the only reason to keep him around is sentimentality. Great guy, awesome success story -- but, sentimentality does not win football games and certainly doesnt win championships.

Guys, I mentioned this literally seven posts before the lib 7 post :frown:

you buried the lede

Sorry, I loved The Audible. It's back by the way as a part of the pay site, The Athletic, a site that has all writers laid off by ESPN and Fox.

...And we just used it to score 7 rough ridin' points. Against Vanderbilt.

Boo hoo. It's been three days, stop feeling sorry for yourself.

I wouldn't call Ertz a pussy, but I will say confidently that he has peaked and isn't a guy who can take over games like elite quarterbacks.

You might be right but, he absolutely took over the Texas Bowl. He was awesome against OSU then Dana Dana'd up that fourth quarter. I do think he and the entire offense, get handcuffed when Dana gets tight and risk averse. When Mike and Ell were QBs the offense took many more chances and never tightened up. Ell was allowed to make mistakes and he made plenty of them. We all love Ell but his dog poo games gets completely glossed over, people treat him like Mike and he wasn't that.

The game against UT will be remembered as the game that Vince Young took over but Ell had an absolutely horror of a game that should look real familiar. 5-18, 89 yards, 2 INTs, 0 TDs, 17 rushes, 87 yards, 2 TDs; third game, senior year. That was his 32nd game as a QB, the Vandy game was Sisco's 16th where he had any significant playing time. Ell's 16th start with significant playing time was a home loss to UT, 17-14. 7-18, 102 yards, 1 TD, 26 rushes for 23 yes 23 yards; that's a horrific stat line.
Sidenote, since play calling is a significant topic right now; I have no idea who the OC was in 2002 but this game where Ell had 26 rushes for 23 yards, Darren only had 20 rushes for a mere 136 yards. What the hell were the coaches doing that game? :sdeek:

I can only think of two field goals in crucial situations that he's been in.  Last week at Vandy and then last year at West Virginia.

Missed both    :dunno:

Think harder then, dipshit.

What are they then?  At West Virginia his freshman year is about the only other crucial spot I could think of.  And that wasn't a must have field goal.

What? If he missed it, we would have lost if WVU scored a touchdown and extra point. WVU was forced to kick a FG when they had the ball at the 8 yard line because they were down two scores with under a minute left.

He made another one against WVU in '15, we won by 1 point. He made three against Tech just last season, including two with less than 7 minutes left, we won by 6. His FG against UT last year was our last score, we won by 3.

Even if he did make the "crucial" field goal against Vandy, we still needed a touchdown that we never got.

I dont know what game you guys watched but Ertz looked to me like he was afraid to hit someone or make a play all night long. He throws the ball poorly (half the time they are wounded ducks) and is in general just a big pu$$y.

Of course he didn't want to hit somebody, he's a quarterback you dumb [redacted].

Again, I don't think this was one of Dimel's better games, but I also don't think he's an idiot.

He's not an idiot.  He thinks very highly of himself & his system.  8 or 9 times a year it works.  Once or twice a year he goes up against something that for some reason it doesn't work.  Rather than adapt, he keeps calling the plays the defense dictates, regardless of situation or personnel, like the 2nd half of 2015 TCU or 2016 WVU.  When you see it happening again, it's very frustrating.  For me, it's more frustrating that he tells Kellis we have a top 5 run scheme because of the options & angles it creates, but he abandons it if the defense dictates pass and puts it all on his QBs shoulders, even if his QB is obviously shaken by what's happening.
I actually think he doesn't believe in the system as much as he should. I think he gave up on imagination to rely on Ertz left, Ertz right.

I'm all for high expectations, but sometimes you have to appreciate what you have. We are clearly the 3rd best football program in this league in the 8 years since Snyder's return. (Baylor's success is largely based on letting a program run with no checks IMO)

The numbers below (from the 09-16 seasons) give a great perspective about what we have. I'd love to consistently win Big 12 titles and compete for National Titles, but what we have is pretty damn good.



I think seeing a repeat of WVU last year, poor execution, & play calling squandering an opportunity make it worse. It's not the loses that suck, it's the dysfunction leading to the losses that are driving the way people feel.  I'll also openly admit Dana Dimel being arrogant & condescending the few times he's allowed to talk to the media affect my feelings.

I'll still have a lot of fun watching us win 5-to-7 conference games.

My dislike for how Dimel goes about his business is well documented, but man, it's college football, everybody has to deal with what I bolded. OSU lost to Central Michigan and Baylor last year.

Someone asked me if beating k-state was "like beating Akron" and I told him that we haven't played Akron so I really didn't know.  But, I can say that beating lil'-k is about as satisfying as beating Middle Tennessee except we gave up 1 more point to lil'-k due to a ridiculous defensive breakdown.  Middle had a far more sophisticated, more multi-dimensional, offense so our defense was a good bit better in that game.

While I was obviously for Vandy this game, I generally pull for Southwest Conference teams so best of luck.

I pulled off I-70 at the Manhattan exit on my drive to Colorado last year to get gas but there wasn't a town there.

Where were you before the game? No confidence in Vandy, wonder why that was?

Good luck this weekend

I'm not saying Vandy sucks but they are a mid-level Big 12 team on their best day.

Then so are we

Which is why there needs to be a change, because we should not be a mid level program. There are plenty of things that need to change after last night, but coaching happens to be one of them.

Neither Vandy or K-State are mid level programs, goodness gracious. K-State is a top 25 program and Vandy, under Mason, seems to be headed there.

Sure we might be a Top 25 team but do you see us competeting for a conference title soon? I cannot see it with the consistent baffling decisions we make. And I don't really want to settle for 8-9 wins a year.

I'll happily eat crow if the rest of the season proves me wrong but we don't appear to be in the same class as either Oklahoma school. It was by far the most disappointing loss and least encouraging game I've seen us play since Snyder came back.

I agree with that, but I took exception to your classification of Vandy, and by default, us as mid level. I also disagree that us being a 9 win program necessitates a coaching change.  College football is full of 5-7 win programs, we aren't elite but we're clearly a top 25 program and I'm happy with that. I'll take 7-10 wins a year with a legit run happening every five years. I know people don't want to hear this now but we are still a year away from the peak for this team. The best two teams in this conference are losing the best QBs in their programs history after this season, at worst we will be returning either all 11 starters or 10 of them.

I get being frustrated with Saturday but the state of the program is in great shape.

Oh, and our clock management at the end of the game was completely laughable. Zero urgency, which I put on the coaches, and a couple times when we either should've called time out but didn't, or called time out after letting a bunch of time run off the clock.

No idea because I was at the game...did our coaches even notice/raise a stink to the refs when, around 2:40 left in the 4Q, a play went out of bounds and they still ran :20 off the clock before the next snap? Probably not because they are all olds.

Clock starts back up after spotting after going out of bounds when it's not under 2 minutes in a half.  Same timing rules as a first down.  They changes that rule before the 2011 season.
That is a dog crap rule

It was a rule constituted for TV. In the mid to late aughts, when spread offenses were really starting to take hold, games were taking 4+ hours and it was creating a real problem for TV. I remember a couple of times back then where the 2:30 ABC kickoff would last until or past the 7:00 kickoff.

When you took the 4 seconds to make this ridiculous point, did you cut out a couple tenths of a second to consider salaries when discussing retention? I'll help you guys, our assistants are paid very very well.

He gave an incredible speech at my wife's commencement.

21
That's not my stance at all, I lay equal blame on him, the WRs, and the coaching staff.

DJamer Reed's breakup on the long bomb.  :love:

Reggie Walker forcing multiple holds was pretty good.

Also, I was blinded by rage, but did Kirby step it up after the 1st drive?  I think he did.

Kirby shouldn't be starting

Defense was fantastic last night.

24
He had 29 catches for 404 yards & 1 TD his senior year with NFL practice squad ability.  I wouldn't use that to brag on Coleman.

What kind of receiving numbers would you expect a 3rd receiver to get in our offense? There was no point in his career did you or anyone else consider him someone who would be a professional football player. You said no one has improved, Burton went from not playing, to dropping everything, to serviceable, to an NFL roster. You gotta take the L man.

You also keep asking who else he's developed, none of these dudes have even had a year and a half in the program so how in the hell could any of us know?

25
The play-by-play guy freaking out about us not calling a timeout after 2ND DOWN, on defense, at the end of the first half was weird, did the dude forget what down it was? Then he mentioned it again in the 4th quarter, as if it has any relevance to the outcome at all.
