Just throwing it out there. Currently their message boards are bonkers. Just peculiar timing for a normally well run clean message board to start getting spam like crazy, and Fitz suddenly jumping on the same ship as them

what is the relationship with Scout? Will that board be absorbed?

Eventually, yes. The two networks are combining. Some things from Scout will be used (such as the front page) and some of 247. The timing of our contract change and the merger didn't line up ideally.

Since there were probably a lot of gE'rs that were powercat illustrated magazine subscribers, I think this info from a member of KStateOnline.com could be helpful in trying to get all your various memberships accounted for:

Quote
Banned at 247 or PI money stolen? 247 issued me a credit!

I got refunded to my CC, my subscription after a short discussion with 247 customer service.

Fitz, posted on the 247 non premium board that he didn't have the money in the bank to refund Powercat Illistrated subscription money. Yep, he took your renewal by check in most cases even though he knew he was shutting the magazine down. Tells me all I need to know about a person's integrity.

It's my opinion that Fitz was more likely pushed out by Rivals than not, though I don't really care at this point.

Providing that information to 247/scout customer service will get you a refund.

Just the facts, no additional comment needed. My last discussion on this subject regarding this issue from me. Though I am going to pass along this information to the many folks I know who only PI subscribers.

Fill in what I'm missing, please.

Fitz continued to take money for PI subs even though he knew he was done making it? People flip out when he announces it's done, he tells some people he will refund them, then realizes he's broke AF and doesn't. Switches to 247 and now 247 is doing the refunding? Is that right?

Chad May will always be one of the most meaningful QB's in KSU history to me. He was the QB on the two teams that changed EVERYTHING about KSU. For a program that had only been to 1 bowl game EVER to go to two BACK TO BACK is by itself one of the most significant sports accomplishments in school history.  When you factor in how important football would turn out to be by the end of that decade, then it might be one of the most important accomplishments in conference history. 

How many recruits signed up to the team that went to back to back bowls, versus our other typical competitors at the time?

crap, he's the rough ridin' man in my book.  Always will be.
Title: Re: Conspiracy Theory: is Fitz trying to edge out PurplePride.com?
Post by: MakeItRain on May 13, 2021, 06:14:02 PM
I don't think the team accomplished anything under May that they wouldn't have if Matt Miller wasn't the quarterback and I don't think that is a slight on May either. The program didn't really advance from '93-'97 although I think the 1996 team was better than any of the ones before it. I have to question May's program impact if we don't even know if he moved the program forward more than Brian Kavanaugh did two seasons later.

Michael Bishop was, by far, the most impactful quarterback in program history. May made the program a top 25 program, Bishop elevated the program to a national power.

I don’t understand your logic. There’s no Miller if there’s no May. No Bishop either.

Post by: MakeItRain on May 13, 2021, 09:11:46 PM
I don’t understand your logic. There’s no Miller if there’s no May. No Bishop either.

How do you figure that? Matt Miller transferred to K-State for the 1993 season Chad May was redshirting when Miller made the decision to come here. I also don't think you can draw a line from May to Bishop without going through Miller and Cavanaugh, they were the QBs when Bishop became aware of K-State and were the guys for the entirety of his recruitment.

Look, I'm not going to sit here and convince anyone that Chad May wasn't better than Cavanaugh or Miller, but I don't have any idea how one could be considered the most impactful QB in program history and the other two not even make the top 10, that doesn't make any sense at all, and if you can't separate those two I don't know how one can claim May is more impactful than Bishop.

Massive props, no sarcasm either, for getting that first bowl win though.

Kavanaugh bailed us out in the Holiday Bowl and his 1 lone season as a starter his numbers were equal to Millers.  I don't get the hate.

Also there is no correllation between May -> Bishop.  Different offensive coordinators and philosophies altogether.  Bishop should be #1 on that list by a mile.

I'd go Bishop too but I'm not terribly outraged at the May pick.

Same, I guess I think it's dumb to do an article about "most impactful." Any Top 10 for the QB position that doesn't have Bish #1 is dumb. Were they going for wow factor or click bait or something?

He was poor on the goal line, no doubt. He also led us to our first major bowl and had the team in position to win the game.

Matt Miller is on the latest edition of The Life of Fitz podcast, and I'd strongly recommend everyone listen, it's very good. Matt also has stage 4 prostate cancer, but it's apparently much worse than Fitz's. They talk about that, his time at K-State, and his coaching career. There is also a super awkward moment when Fitz asks him about alcoholism. When Fitz is asking the question you feel like they definitely talked about it before, but when Matt answers it's apparent that they definitely didn't discuss it before the podcast.

Anyway just search life of fitz podcast like anywhere.

Thanks for the recommendation.  What a collection of great nostalgia and kicks in the nuts.
