Just imagine throwing back some smooth natural lights on the roof of the garage while chanting, playing music and kicking a ball around. The Moro St Marauders are going to have so much fun.

This picture would piss me off so much if I were an equestrian girl.

They need to remove the picture but this is in no way shape or form his fault. No one else wanted to take on equestrian.

What if they took a pic of Currie holding a freshly lopped horse's head, still bleeding and everything?

Is there a tourney?
About how many games in a season?
 Big XII championship game?
90 minute games I assume, with draws and then extra periods in the tourney or playoffs or whatever?
Who is the dominant team in the Big XII? In the country?
Anything else I should know?

north carolina is, obviously, the de facto blue blood.

90 minute halves, though it's a little different from what you're used to as a world cup aficionado as there's not the same 3-sub/game rule

b12's best seems to fluctuate a lot (translation: it's ours for the taking)

Granted we already have a soccer field and the location is excellent but where will the recruits come from?  The state of Kansas is weak on girls soccer. Girls softball is wildly popular.  Most of the players will probably be foreigners just like tennis.  How many people would rather watch a bunch of foreigners (no disrespect intended) than girls from all over Kansas playing softball?

4 things I want for soccer at K-State:

1.  No singing I believe that we will win.  Let Cat fans make up their own unique songs.  I think we should create our own identity.

2.  No goals like this one:  it's so small timey

(http://www.keepergoals.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/m88W-721-1.jpg)

3.  I want this goal:

(http://static.itpro.co.uk/sites/itpro/files/images/dir_186/it_photo_93316.jpg)

4.  And if we don't use the old stadium, then we should have a stand at our stadium that spells either KSU or Kansas State in the seats.
Like this but with purple seats and white lettering.  Obviously our stand wouldn't be near that big.  I'm holding out hope for a 5000 seat stadium.  Google some league 2 sides in England for some comparos.

If your idea of "ready to go" is a field that may or may not meet actual college soccer size regulations, with portable goals and enough lines to confuse even the most effective cryptographer with no permanent dressing rooms, concessions or public restrooms and currently under or soon to be under construction with facilities aimed at an entirely academic/administration/arts function.   Than yes, Memorial Stadium is "ready to go".

Oh, don't fear, tremendous optimism around here about the prospects of a wonderful soccer stadium out at the sports complex on the road to having one of the best on campus sport complexes in the country.    Still hearty laughs at geeks who want old Memorial and all the issues that will come with it instead of access to their own stadium, indoor practice facilities and superior sports medicine and training.

I don't think it would be that expensive to build the nicest women's soccer complex in the big 12.

It's exciting building this from scratch.  We have the opportunity to build nicer facilities than everyone else. 

I just hope we don't throw up some metal bleachers and call it good.

of the two existing grass football practice fields into three fields to accommodate usage for both the football and
soccer programs. The basic field footprint covers approximately 240,000 square feet. The new design will include
a field with artificial turf and two fields with a natural grass surface. The total project cost is estimated at $3.4
million funded from private gifts and athletic funds.

This all sounds stupid and gross. The fieldturf better not be for the football team. I don't want, in any way, for my university to be involved with playing real soccer on fieldturf. I picture all three fields being in a line but there being a tiny soccer scoreboard and portable metal bleachers for the seating, like the same metal bleachers that are leaving BSFS. God I hope I'm wrong but this sounds horrific.

The very first question one has to ask is what kind of turf were those people in those pictures playing on. 

American Football players typically have noting covering their arms, with exceptions and they slide across the artificial grass/turf fields all the time and rarely do I ever see any abrasions such as that.   I suspect those girls/guys were probably playing on the few remaining old style turf fields which are typically only used by field hockey teams or cheap knock off artificial grass fields, not made by the primary companies.   Seriously do you think NFL'ers would constantly rate some FieldTurf/AstroTurf gameday grass fields above some natural turf fields if they left abrasions like that on their arms and elsewhere?


Oh, and even real grass can leave abrasions on people.

Plus, why the eff do some people think that the women's soccer program at K-State should fly out of the gates with some awesome stadium, unless somebody steps up to pay for it?

why do something half-ass?  you can't expect to win if you roll out the wal-mart of soccer fields.
and if you do happen to stumble onto success, you'll end up growing and dumping the initial investment (vanier complex currently getting torn down)

show the conference and your team that you're committed to the program, it will pay off with success on the field.

the cost of a natural grass field can't cost that much more incrementally than an artificial turf field.

is there no student input solicited?  i would hope that they have a voice in these decisions since it is, you know, theirs.

Hmmmm....I don't recall saying they do.  I was just curious as to why you decide to trust these studies as opposed to other studies conducted by state agencies.  Doubly so, because you don't really know any of the science involved to the appropriate degree to make decisions about the validity of the studies yourself. (Hell neither does MIR to be fair).  It's probably because they support what you want to believe is true, so you are less skeptical towards them.  That's natural, most people do that.

I am not making a claim one way or the other.  But, as the resident expert on these issues, I expect you should have a number of studies you can point us to. It would also be nice if you could summarize in your own words what scientific information you found most compelling (or perhaps weakest) about each study.

First off, it's just typical angered up passive aggressive Chingon at work, playing the "whatever Dax says, I'll say the opposite game". 

http://www.calrecycle.ca.gov/publications/Documents/Tires/2010009.pdf

My biggest takeaways from that study and similar studies is that while surface temps on artificial grass in-fill fields are higher, just a few feet above the surface there's very little difference in air temps between modern artificial grass and  natural grass fields.    The study did say that rate of abrasion for college athletes was 2x to 3x higher on artificial surfaces.   However based on FIFA database research there are only 2 FIFA certified artificial grass pitches in California and it isn't known if they were part of the study.   Also appears to be lower levels of infection causing bacteria in artificial grass fields in this study as compared to studied natural turf surfaces.

If history is our guide, than the chances of K-State maintaining a pristine natural grass field throughout the course of an entire season with practice and games is about 50%.   I'll push that to 75% since we are in an era where K-State has more money than it had back when it had natural grass playing surfaces.   When K-State had grass in the football stadium it was only in decent condition by season end, at best.   When K-State had grass in the baseball stadium, teams used to complain about the infield all the time.     

Plus, I'm not saying that K-State should roll out any old artificial grass surface.

Wow swayed by one study.  One study from 2010 which was performed under a contract from the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle).  A study that says using recycled tires is A-OK.  I wonder what the consequences would be if the "scientists" had come to a different conclusion?  Just Asking Questions guys.

I would be grateful for your thoughts on dependence on VOC and air temperature dax.  I suspect most would believe (perhaps naively so) that the concentration of VOCs emitted into the air would increase with surface (or near surface) temperature.  Using your expertise, can you explain why this would be case?  I think most interesting would be your counter as to why this might not be the case (as found by this study). Why did they find that the concentrations did not depend (heavily) on temperature?  What physical/chemical phenomenon is occurring here that runs counter to what most people would expect?

Now, tell me, what does any of what you said have anything to do with why K-State women's soccer should or shouldn't play on an artificial grass surface?

If you're predisposed to natural grass and since you are the smartest guy in the room could you please list the types of chemicals that are often needed to maintain a natural turf athletic field in Central Kansas.   Please note that would be the necessary chemicals to maintain a natural turf athletic field in Central Kansas at level that would afford above average, if not superior playing conditions in all climatic circumstances one can typically find in Central Kansas from August until the late Fall (let's pretend our Lady Soccer players are eventually going to be really good).   I can only guess what those chemicals might be, but surely you know.

Colgate, St. John's, Florida International all have FIFA certified FieldTurf pitches.

Marshall has a FIFA certified AstroTurf (AstroTurf GT+) pitch

In order to maintain FIFA certification the fields have to be regularly tested by 3rd party testing companies.

So you're okay with our facilities meeting the exacting and nationally renowned standards such as Texas Tech, Marshall, Colgate, St. Johns, and FIU?

You can't just install an Artificial Grass field and call it FIFA certified.   Why is this so hard for you to understand?   

Henry, is one guy, who lives in non reality when it comes to well maintained, modern artificial grass fields.

And you just can't understand that FIFA certification of these fields have nothing to do with what I'm talking about. I'm even confused as to why you brought it up. Did that kbor agenda mention fifa? You ranted about people bitching about something that hasn't happened but then you brought in an element not in play. FIFA fields still bake in the sun and maim people.

Can you tell me how many high level fifa competitions have been played on these fifa fields?

You implied that an artificial grass field would be a mistreatment of the Women's soccer program at K-State . . . please don't even attempt to say that you didn't.

FIFA certification takes into account testing for playability and safety . . . of course the 3rd party testing companies could also be in the hip pocket of big crumb rubber.

I'm saying that if K-State women's soccer is given a FIFA tested and certified artificial playing surface, that it will be perfectly fine.

I am not saying that rubber infill has any negative health effects when compared to natural grass. I am hoping you can convince me in the same way the studies you read convinced you that there is no need for concern.  I was also curious as to why you gulped down these studies with none of the skepticism in gov't funded studies I have come to expect from dax. (It's because they support your initial cause/belief, and that's OK.  Everyone does this to some extent).

I didn't imply anything, I straight out said that, and I said it more than once. I've said it in other soccer conversations on this board, which is one of the reasons your FIFA lecture to me is hilarious. The safety issues I brought up don't come into play with that farcical FIFA certification.

I'll ask one more time, how many FIFA major competitions have been played on these FIFA certified surfaces? I'll answer for you, the answer is one. It was something like a U17 tournament played in South America over 5 years ago. The WWC in 2015 are playing on artificial surfaces and none of them have received the FIFA certification.

Also dax, if they have a practice field, the wear and tear on the fields will be far less. The bigger concern is the amount of water that will be needed in late July-early September to maintain them. As you rightly pointed out earlier poorly maintained grass can be just a dangerous as turf. I have a lifetime scar on my leg from playing one game on a baked field and I was the keeper, my teammates looked like they were attacked by cheese graters.

If the droughts in those areas persist they may have to move to artificial grass.   

I was just curious, because you act like these fields are like the old AstroTurf fields.   

Marshall is a FIFA 1 Star Certified Pitch, the highest is 2 stars.   A German company produces a turf that often gets 2 Star FIFA ratings, of course it's not just he surface itself that gets the rating, it's the entire installation. 

Lessor version of what Texas Tech has from AstroTurf received a 1 Star FIFA certification in Leesburg, VA.

I'm not acting like anything. Maybe you're not reading but I have specifically talked about the temperature of the artificial surfaces (they have been recorded at 130 degrees +), the increased occurrences of serious skin abrasions, and the POSSIBILITY of carcinogens in the surface. All of these things are issues with any fieldturf surface, fifa certified or not
Title: Re: First Official K-State Women's Soccer Thread
Post by: sonofdaxjones on December 15, 2014, 03:26:20 PM
That's surface temps, the air temps just above the surface are barely higher than natural turf.

One of the factors in FIFA certification is how it scores in Skin abrasions tests (and a myriad of other tests) that are ISO certified.

These are not cheap artificial grass fields that indoor soccer complexes etc. etc. throw down.

Since this has gotten a little silly.

My preference as a K-State observer would be that K-State needs to commit to a highly maintained grass game surface that lasts the entire season.   If they cannot guarantee that, than they should invest in a top of the line artificial grass surface for soccer.

There was no search firm. I'm willing to bet that either one of things happened; Dibbini himself or someone he knows contacted an associate ad for him or he saw the job on the NCAA job board and sent in his resume. The NCAA job board is amazing, I used to use it to hire college athletes to coach various sports.

It's up to each school to post whatever they want, but all schools use it. UT had a couple of jobs on there last I saw. Tech had their D Coordinator job on it. You don't have to be an NCAA member to post a position, it's pretty expensive for non-members; as I said I used to look for coaches on it myself.

To all who will attend K-State soccer matches starting in 2016 — likely at Memorial Stadium in the heart of campus — Dibbini said to expect lots of goals; an up-tempo style modeled after his favorite professional league, Spain’s La Liga; and, most importantly, a roster built around in-state players.

he would always yell at us to "play like barcelona", in an era when you couldn't really watch la liga in the states.  everyone just kinda shrugged their shoulders.  nobody could even name a single player :lol:

i hope it's clean, simple all-white look that the USMNT wore at the World Cup.  Just switch out the red and blue with purple.

I also hope there's a collar.

No thanks. I don't think the bomb pop would look good with our colors.

I meant this one, not the popsicle one.  Just switch the red outline to purple and the replace the USMNT crest with a Powercat.

John Currie says the likely future home of K-State women's soccer will be Memorial Stadium. Should be a fun place for games.

Not sure if luked, but rumblings that this is no longer true. The current plan is to renovate one of the grass practice fields south of Tointon and have games there for at least the first couple of seasons.

There have been two different announcements that have referenced this. The first announcement said they will use three fields by Tointon, I believe it said 2 artificial and 1 natural grass.  It was speculated one of these would be the stadium but that wasn't said.  About a month later it was officially announced that Memorial Stadium would be the home of the team.  I'm not going to dig it out right now but the release made it seem like this may not be the permanent solution.

If I were to read between the lines I think that the area near Tointon will start off as practice fields only while the first season will be played in memorial but the end goal is to end up at the complex. They are playing in memorial until to buy time to raise money and get the facility built.

We have our first keeper! OU transfer Miranda Larkin.

http://www.kstatesports.com/genrel/041515aaa.html (http://www.kstatesports.com/genrel/041515aaa.html)

Quote
Larkin joins the program following two seasons at Oklahoma. The goalkeeper from Rockwall, Texas, saw action in four games in the 2013 season, registering a 1-2-0 record with one shut out and a goals against average of 2.58 in just under 140 minutes of action. Larkin redshirted in the 2014 season and will be a redshirt junior when K-State begins play in the 2016 season.

In her high school career at Rockwall High School, Larkin was a four-year letter winner for the Yellow Jackets under head coach Melissa Garcia. She was an ESPN High School Top 150 recruit and was ranked as the No. 20 prospect in the state of Texas by Top Drawer Soccer. In 2012, she earned Texas Association of Soccer Coaches (TASCO) All-State Second Team honors and was named a TASCO All-Region First Team recipient.

In her club career, Larkin received the Golden Glove award for best goalkeeper at the U.S. Youth Soccer National Championship and was selected to the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) Final Four All-Event Team in 2010.

Maybe off topic, but can anyone fill me in on why they are ruining the bleachers at old stadium? I moved back to MHK for several reasons. One was so my kid can be a townie. Another was so I could run bleachers at old stadium.

To enhance the beauty of the stadium and add sustainability, Memorial Stadium will also receive a living green roof.

Why can't one side be green and the other preserved so generations of K-Staters can enjoy it as intended?   :shakesfist:

That's surface temps, the air temps just above the surface are barely higher than natural turf.

One of the factors in FIFA certification is how it scores in Skin abrasions tests (and a myriad of other tests) that are ISO certified.

These are not cheap artificial grass fields that indoor soccer complexes etc. etc. throw down.

 K-State women’s soccer head coach Mike Dibbini announced the addition of transfer student-athlete, as forward Abby Sieperda will join the inaugural Wildcat roster for the 2016 season.

Sieperda joins the Wildcats following two seasons at Arkansas in 2014 and 2015. The forward from Shawnee, Kansas played in 17 matches with one start. In her sophomore season with the Razorbacks, she saw action in nine matches. During her freshman campaign, Sieperda played in eight games and notched her first career goal against Missouri State. She is also a strong student, as she was named to the 2015 SEC First Year Honor Roll.

So I was doing some searching and actually found the blueprint for the new soccer fields on the KMAN website (if they were posted I missed them). 

http://1350kman.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Soccer-Renderings.jpg

So, I guess I need to ask, just where do they plan to build permenant dressing rooms, and I'll assume at some point soccer will get it's own mini-Vanier.   Where are they going to put that?   The only place I see is on the South side and that's where that old house that facilities uses is located.

There is lots of space at Brandenburg which is garbage and close.  That has to be the next step.  For now, they will use the baseball stadium facilities for both concessions and locker rooms.

Don't know, but the fund raising began in earnest four or five years ago.   Bosco was talking about it years ago.

Then you better look a little closer.    The only school in the Big 12 with an on campus stadium that looks even remotely big time is Texas, and that was built to preserve the Texas Relays with a soccer field in the middle.   Even the national powers had to produce years upon years of championships to get upgrades.

Dear Tobias,
 
This spring has been an exciting time for K-State Soccer and we wanted to update you on all the recent developments to the program. Between hiring a new assistant coach, finalizing the home schedule, and signing 28 players to the roster, my staff and I have been working hard to prepare for competition this fall.
 
MARK YOUR CALENDARS! The home schedule for the inaugural season has been finalized and we are excited to host four home matches in the month of September. Our first home game will be against Northern Iowa on Friday, September 16, the night before the football home opener against Florida Atlantic. This will be the first Wildcat Weekend of the 2016-17 season! The following week, we host Oral Roberts on Friday, September 23, and South Dakota on Sunday, September 25. Our 2016 home slate will end with UMKC on Friday, September 30.
 
Those of you with purple or platinum Founders Club memberships already have season tickets for both the 2016 and 2017 seasons. If you have a white membership and want to add season tickets, please call Tony Cappellin in the ticket office at 785.532.7681 to upgrade your membership.
 
In just over a year since the launch of Founders Club, we have more than 1,000 members representing 28 different states. We appreciate your support and belief in our young program.
 
We are extremely excited to play our first four home games in front of a large and enthusiastic fan base. Strategically we have scheduled matches on home football weekends to give our fans and players the opportunity to enjoy some quality soccer in our first season of competition.
 
Details on the full schedule will be released soon.

(http://neweratickets61-t.neolane.net/res/neweratickets/58bfc168cd96b98aa4582b0c5d1786aa.jpg)

In January, we announced an addition to our coaching staff, assistant coach Jessica Smith. Smith joins current assistant coach Gabe Romo on the first staff at K-State.
 
Smith served as an assistant coach on the KU staff from 2011 to 2015. Before she joined the KU coaching staff, Smith coached at various levels in the Kansas City Metro area, including as a varsity assistant coach for both the boys' and girls' teams at Olathe Northwest High School.
 
For more information on Assistant Coach Jessica Smith, click here. (http://"http://fan.kstatesports.com/r/?id=h15f38e7c,33f8459a,33f8495d")

As we prepare our team for competition, we are also in the process of preparing our home field for our four home games this fall. The home of K-State Soccer is just south of Tointon Family Stadium off College Avenue. While we have been patiently watching the grass grow, we are excited for the opportunity to play on real grass this fall.

(http://neweratickets61-t.neolane.net/res/neweratickets/33f0b7cc883e0215719848dee929d1e1.jpg)
We continued to fill out our inaugural roster and signed 28 new student-athletes this spring. The signees joined the roster of seven to bring the total to 35. The current roster of seven used a redshirt season in 2015 to prepare for the upcoming 2016 season.
 
The staff and I are very excited about announcing the 2016 recruiting class. This is a group of quality young women, both on and off the field, a group that should integrate nicely with our returning roster of players. We filled several areas offensively, defensively and in the net. It should be a great group to work with, a group that is coachable and committed.
 
For more information on the current roster, click here (http://"http://fan.kstatesports.com/r/?id=h15f38e7c,33f8459a,33f8495e").

We look forward to training camp in August and the future of our program. Thank you, again, for your support of K-State Soccer and we look forward to seeing you this fall.
 
Go Cats!

Okay, great facilities for everybody.

Was doing a little Google Earthing last night, and if the dreamed about athletic park that houses all K-State sports ever comes to pass, either parking is going to have to be sacrificed or buildings are going to have to be built with parking underneath, or some stuff is going to have be torn down.

Can you elaborate a little, please? I think I've missed this along the way.

Of course I've heard a few things, but one thing I don't understand, is ever putting anything in the west lot besides maybe green space and trees or just trees. The whole design of the west side was for the drive in from the west/airport, wasn't it? "The corridor to campus" or whatever, and putting crap in the west lot would kind of defeat that purpose I think.

K-State has 4 permanent sports venues without video/LED displays.    Now, it is a little dumb IMO that neither B-ball nor V-ball have VB's considering how "down market" high quality video displays are these days.    But with that said the current set-up of the baseball stadium, track, and new soccer fields would make it very easy to have a mobile video board truck.    Simply create a spot at all venues to pull fiber and power to, roll up and plug in.   For example a spot to roll the truck up to and hoist the board up over the left field wall at TFS could easily be done, for the soccer field you wouldn't even have to leave the drive between the fields and TFS, the outdoor track is easily accessible as well.   You could put all kinds of K-StateO signage on the truck, and the software and necessary apps for each sport for statistics, event finishes (track) and such all already in the can and readily available from vendors.    K-State doesn't host that many outdoor track meets, but when the conference meet rolls back around, you just bring the truck in.    Obviously the truck would be the better choice, not the skanky trailer, you could even put it in the parking lot on football game days to show promotional stuff, other games etc. etc.    With HD video panels coming way down market and with the modular nature of the panels you could get years of use out of it.

I'll throw an attaboy at John Currie.   For a fledgling soccer program they've walked into a pretty decent set up.   I saw on Twitter the coaches lauding the new pitch.    It's a decent set up for the stands which everyone is emphasizing are just  temporary.   The wrought iron fence and new limestone pillar entry is a nice touch.   Really not bad for a first year program in terms of venue.   Hopefully they can move the timeframe for the baseball/soccer building up, and find the funds to build a permanent stadium/stands structure.

That's kind of what I was thinking at first, but . . .    Texas did that, but I've seen where Texas now wants to build a separate soccer stadium.    It gets a little tight if you have all the field (of track and FIELD) stuff inside the stadium and a soccer field as well.

I'd like to leave the soccer stadium in that spot, and just make this one gleaming wall of limestone down college avenue from BSFS to the soccer stadium. 3-5,000 seats should be plenty sufficient.

Agreed, for a completely new program, it's a pretty solid start. Hopefully more founder's club member join, and it builds up especially with all the extra $$$ coming in from the TV contracts. What is it, two years before they officially become part of the Big 12 soccer circuit?

Permanent seating for approximately 2,500 is located on the west side of the facility, which was originally constructed in 1973 prior to a $1.4 million renovation of the complex in 2004, and additional seating for nearly 500 has been installed this spring on the east side of the track.

Yeah it's dumb to try to utilize an already built stadium that could use renovations as is.

What if I told you that the track stadium was upgraded only 4 years ago.

That web page is out of date because they made several updates to the facility prior to hosting the Big 12 outdoor meet in 2012.

The outdoor track needs re-surfacing.   But because Cliff doesn't like to host meets, it may be awhile.   I'm just tired of reading about Cliff and the individual athletes.   Go win a trophy!

sorry missed it... for the washburn home game the benches were set on the far side and no rain shelter.  there was also no rain in the forecast for that one (we got rained on in omaha), so who knows

Holy crap, I had a dream last night after this post that I was in an indoor 2-story mall for some reason related to me going to a non-ksu soccer game (that concept went unexplained) but I'd mixed up the days and it was actually the ksu lady soccer game and all of you people had the mall completely clogged up to where I could barely walk to get out of there.

The tailgate starts at 5, I won't be there until 6ish.

Hopefully the AD takes the potential into account when permanent bleachers are built.

Prolly 1500-2500 will be plenty. UMKC barely has 1000. KU has 2500. Just leave build a nice media and suite area to it (I'm sure a few  :kstategrad: founder's donors wouldn't mind throwing a bit to have a suite). If you leave area for overflow/people to bring their lawn chairs or set up temp bleachers for postseason crowds easily a solid stadium and layout. I thought going to the game it was already well done for being temporary. Excited to see what they do after the season is done.

Also, they need to get something more than tents for the locker rooms, but given that there are only 4 home games probably not high on this year's list.

Brainstorming, wouldn't mind something like this, but smaller:

(http://www.dlrgroup.com/media/470327/10-02120-00-Creighton-Soccer_marquee-01.jpg)

Basically make 7 sections ~200 people apiece on the lower end and have it say "K-State" in each section, second level and overhand make it look like a mini WSC both field side and outside but in the vein of what Creighton's done there, and then  leave both sides of the stadium GA seating on the small hills.

Pretty much what I had in mind, might have gone a bit overboard w/ Creighton's field as the basis, but I did say for it to be "smaller" but w/e. I don't think it's really asking for too much, especially a few years down the road. Creighton's 6000 person stade btw was $14 mil. If we spent $2 mill on a "rowing shack" we can spend $8 mill on a 1400 person stadium.

This was the case last year as well but it's kind of misleading. The grandstand seats are sold out only because of all of the founders club memberships they sold, there's always room available in the bleachers.

Just finished the replay.  Definitely worth watching the final 3 minutes as we parked the bus.  Miranda Larkin was immense!  Those final two saves!!!

And our goal was quality.  Lovely through ball, delicate finish.  mmmmmmmm wildcat victory. 

I like that Dibbini has the same shape as Frank.

Funny story. The gentleman were singing their songs and standing up. They werw impressive. The KU women's basketball team said "Oh hell no." The women's team began singing a pro KU song and it was quite loud. Then KSU crew laughed and listened a minute. Then retorted with "they're not standing" clap clap clapclapclap. The women then jumped up and cheered. Everyone laughed and it was great.

I'll admit I really enjoyed sitting next to Devonte Graham for a bit. Some kids came to get a pic so I moved out of the way. He then said that kid just Deboed your seat. I laughed.

I then said I was actually a Kentucky and KSU fan and that he had beaten both of my favorite teams. He said that yep. We beat both of them cats. We all had a good laugh. It was a great experience.

Tobias avoided me though. :(

I got three sets for the remaining games that I can't go to. One is GA, two are standing room but they're letting standing room into the bleachers after 15 minutes played.

PM sent!

Tickets received. Thanks MIR!  :emawkid:

really needed to beat OU or at least draw them to get into the Big 12 Tourney. Beating Iowa State on Friday and OU and Tech not drawing, would get us in, i think. Not 100% sure tho.

also, i'm anti-moral victories at all costs, but I don't think it should be understated how quickly this team became competitive. Literally only the 2nd season of this team's existence, and only 1st season in the Big 12, only one loss in conference play has been by more than 1 goal. This team is full of fighters and 100% can become a conference contender in the next few years.

Enjoyed getting to watch them on Fox sports yesterday, except for the roughly 20-30 minute stretch in the second half where they were just absolutely dominated. OU controlled the ball pretty much the whole time and scored 3 in a row. Cats were good the rest of the game, though.

Agree 100%. It's hard to just expect a program in it's second year to win a lot, or be competitive, but they are right there. If they can acquire a few more players and keep growing, this will be a fun team in 2-3 years. I love that they can push teams like Texas, WVU, and OSU. That loss to TTU as well was the first conference game too, and they only seem to have improved since then. The fact they beat KU is pretty :surprised: to me.

They build the new stadium, they'll have one of the better facilities in the conference, and country.

2-0 start, not bad.  I don’t think Oakland is very good, but the Cats handled them like a good team should.

It didn't take Dibbini long to build good roster balance between classes.

We will know by the end of the weekend.  If they finish this trip 1-1-0 or even 0-0-2 then it would seem like a good step forward.
