The rumors are flying!

Interest in the Bryan McGinnis situation is literally soaring to new heights.  Despite the intimidation of quasi-legitimate website God’s Awesome Gift: KSU, connections between the San Jose State mega assistant and the KSU AD’s office continue to grow.  This morning an undisclosed source close to the situation emailed goEMAW the following picture:

This is further backed by reports that the Synders were vacationing at the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri.  Has Bill Snyder chosen his successor?  It would make sense for KSU since B McG purportedly recently interviewed to replace disgraced head coach Ron Prince.  While the mainstream local media seems to be muzzled, here at goEMAW we will always put news first, even at the risk of our own safety.

The plot thickens like a soup with starch added to it previously reported that coaching superstar Bryan McGinnis had shown interest in the KSU head coaching job at KSU.  Non-traditional news source God’s Awesome Gift: KSU has now backed off of their original breaking story.  While we at goEMAW wish this was a surprising development, the truth is that GAG has clearly been silenced by the AD office at KSU (as an aside we at goEMAW dot com promise to never back down from a story or be pressured by anyone to not pursue a lead) .   The sudden change in tune (with the laughably fake name Bryan McPennis) might fool the local beat writers, but still has the photographic evidence of B MgC at the KSU Spring Game.  Just how deep does this go?  Buckle your seat belts boys and belles, this is going to be a bumpy ride.

Hot Sticky Rumors for a Hot Sticky Day

With job replacement fever sweeping through the Wildcat Nation, we here at goEMAW have just learned that hot coaching commodity Bryan McGinnis may be in the mix to replace ousted KSU football coach Ron Prince.  Not surprisingly, the outlaw gonzo sports website God’s Awesome Gift: KSU is at the center of this rapidly developing story.  While GAG may have a reckless reputation it appears as if this time they have stumbled upon something that could be massive.   Soon after GAG posted a short casual phone conversation with B MgG,  out of nowhere an anonymous source posted the following:

My my my oh my, me thinks the Spartan doth protest too much!  In his haste to deny his interview with KSU (which GAG never actually claimed he made!), B McG may have just blown the doors off of the AD’s subterfuge.  In fact a source close to the situation has given us the following photograph taken at the recently played KSU Spring Game:

While we would love to take B McG at his word, the evidence is starting to mount that something is going on in Vanier.   Just what is being hidden? We at goEMAW are dedicated to pursuing the story to the fullest extent.  Stay tuned because this might just be the story of the decade.

The Best of K-State Art

Based on my recent addiction to Bravo’s “Work of Art: The Next Great Artist”, I have decided to be a one man judge of K-State themed art pieces. You can me the Jerry Saltz of the Little Apple (HAR!). Using the brand new Google Image Search (brought to you by the fine folks at Google), I looked for the greatest piece of K-State art in the world. Luckily my Sony Vaio was up to the task with its amazing Intel processor and blazing fast internet connection brought to me by Cox Communications. The very first image was of course a veritable classic: the gloved hand holding up the helmet.

Wow. What a piece. Of course this is paragon of the artist simply known as “Johnson”‘s work.  The vein work is simply delicious and his color palette is sublime.  The bold purple cuts through the gray and forces the viewer to focus the Powercat, as long standing symbol of power and catdom in the K-State community.  But what makes this piece so special is that it goes beyond just the KSU family.  The stark choice of color and vertical alignment of the painting beckons back to the regal power of the human phallus and the mortality we all face.  An overlooked detail is the tailing away of the chinstrap, a rejection of what confines us, on and off the field.

The next piece in my search was

What’s to say?  Fantastic, that’s what.  Amazing brush work combined with a riveting subject: #82.  What draws me in is the mystery of the missing arm.  Where did it go?  How is his glove this holding his helmet?  Is this the same guy from the above picture??  Every answer unveils a new layer of intrigue in this painting.

If you are a true K-Stater, you have not only seen this before, but own a fleece version.  The burgers are a-grillin’ and the sodapop is chilling.  I personally cannot think of a better piece that portrays the festive atmosphere of KSU gameday.   Willie’s pose is very inviting, pulling the viewer into his circle of pregame revelers.  You can almost smell the hamburger sandwich and french fried potatoes garnish that our favorite Wildcat is about to chomp on.  Tailgating with KSU comes to life in this amazing soft focus painting.

Lest we think KSU is all about the brawn without the brains, I give you Anderson Hall.  It has been said that capturing the beauty of Kansas State University’s Campus is an like catching a full rainbow in a jar.  I tend to agree with this well known phrase, but the above artist did their damnedest to try.  The proud tower of Anderson strikes the sky like a fist to God’s face.  The cottony soft clouds embrace their new master.  The landscape alignment of the canvas stretches the mind and the contrasts the pastoral splendor of Kansas with the scientific might of the mankind.

The Wildcat Spirit Embodied in a Man with His Wildcat

The above is not a painting, but should be.  This single image is more K-State than anything else I have ever seen in my life.  From the sculpted arms to the easily +$50 gold chain, this man exudes the confidence that personifies the Wildcat Spirit.  Who else would be comfortable enough to wrangle a wildcat while still striking a pose?  A man who knows what time it is because of his Casio digital watch.  A watch that always reads: ITS WILDCAT TIME!

I know there is a universe of KSU art out there.  If you find some please post them here!

The Beginning

He had a 1940’s face.  It reminded me of photographs I  had seen about World War II, he had those hollowed out cheeks and feverish eyes that can only come from seeing death first hand.  It was the face of the man who either shot someone or was about to be shot.

My visitor was wearing a purple suit, a white shirt and a pearl-gray tie.  His hair was unnaturally black, combed back from the temples in two bands.  He handed me an envelope sealed with wax and left.  I opened it and it said:
