KU comes in ranked 125th in the country for returning production in 2020.   :sdeek:

The West by Ken Burns

It was made in the 90's and is on Netflix now. It's like 12 episodes long each of which is like an hour and a half long. Wow, so well done and equally infuriating for what happened as a developing nation. I thought I knew a decent amount of US history but damn, we were rough ridin' awful.

The California thing was really eye opening. Straight up Genocide and didn't even try to sugar coat it.  Not only did they kill all the native people they just simply ran off/bullied the Spanish/Mexican landowners who had been there for decades.  Just BRUTAL.

Do some youtubing on the Sand Creek massacre when you have time...

I can't imagine how much money I would have to make to be one of those sorry bastards that have to stand behind and pretend to be listening with great interest and respect.  Barf.

Kansas State Football / Re: attendance
« on: November 18, 2019, 02:22:48 PM »
Saturday was the first game I have attended in 11 years.  I was blown away by how easily we found parking, found tailgate, got into the stadium, seats, etc...  I was a bit disappointed by the food options in the East side club level but whatever.  The seats were great. The gameday experience was VERY enjoyable. 

The game was dog crap though so I'll probably wait another 11 years. 

I did notice the stadium seemed about 2/3 as full after the half. Crowd looked good from my seats at kickoff.

Confused old lady at a men's conference checks out

haha.. Thank you.    :bwpopcorn:

He's off the sauce.

I hope that's all it is.  It's bizarre... everyone else is pretty conversational and discussing different points relating to the game/program and when they throw it to DScott it sounds like a robot reading at a 5th grade level from a script. He doesn't sound well at all.

8
I've listened to a couple of the GoPowercat podcats with Fitz and Co recently.  I ask this in all seriousness with no malice... Did something happen to DScott over the last couple years that I'm unaware of? Like did he have a stroke or something like that?  There is a VERY noticeable difference in his speech and mannerisms compared to the other people on the podcast.

Leach and Malzahn would be two top targets for me.  Auburn would have to let Malzahn go, but they are delusional enough to do it.

Have lots of friends who still coach H.S. football in TexAZZ, Okie-Homer and Ark.

Many coaches in Ark. hold Missy Gussie Mala-Zone personally responsible for getting Houston Nutt fired. Nutt was highly respected in Ark, Mo, Tenn, Ok, TexAzz if for no other reason than what he, his father and brothers did at Ark School for the Deaf.

 Remember that Nutt is the only Razorback Coach to take Ark to SEC Championship game - twice.  And then Gussie pissed a great many H.S. coaches off while he was Ark. St. with a seriously shitty attitude.Gussie and his wife both proclaim that GAWD picked him to lead AWE-Burn. (easy to look up)

Leech had a pretty crappy reputation among west TexAzz and SW Okie-Homer coaches even before the Co-Murderer of SMU football,
Craig James, stuck his criminal nose into TT football because his lazy son cried to DADDIE with DADDIE's ESPN Power

Funny how both Leech and Mala-Zone have as much trouble hanging onto Asst. Coaches as Pawn Rince, formerly of KSU and Howard.

What does Malzahn's tenure at Arkansas State have to do with Houston Nutt?  Houston Nutt was retired at the time.

If he answers I hope he types in the same gibberish.

Brian Hanni is a bigger dork on the internet than he is on the radio LOL

Brian "The Booth" Hanni.  It seems most of their fanbase would rather listen to animals being tortured than him.

Les is doing Hawk Talk Live right now on ESPN+. They're at Johnny's Tavern and he's just sitting their eating a full meal on camera while the host tries to talk to him. Every time he gets asked a question he looks angry he has to stop eating  :ROFL:
"Time of possession was 38 minutes to...i wanna say...17 minutes and some change..."

 :dunno:

I think he just made his kids do it so he could leave.

They've got Smacker Miles in this!?!?!? I may have to subscribe...

No Smacker.  When I tuned in it was his sons sitting there answering questions bout some sort of weird crap Les does at home or something. I turned it off long before I figured out what they were talking about. I think maybe a sandwich was involved.

Could even make a 12 team work with top 4 getting a bye.  Run it like the NFL playoffs.  11 meaningful games.  Would be GLORIOUS.

Duggan is hurt. He might be ok to play but apparently TCU has like 9 rough ridin' quarterbacks.

Serious question, what would it take to reach a breaking point to actually drop football? Say the NCAA comes down hard on KU athletics. Say multi year postseason ban, loss of scholarships, recruiting restrictions... the works. Les Miles experiment fails spectacularly, revenue drops in basketball because of the sanctions and football continues being a black hole of suck for another 5 years.

Does the conversation realistically take place?
I bet it's like fielding a losing baseball team in the MLB.  There is so much TV money that you can't lose (but you are also a laughing stock).  I'm sure Dax has some spreadsheets on the breaking point financially.  I mean the only other teams to really talk about it are like, UConn right?  I mean woof, but their conference wasn't doing them any favors like the Big 12 is for KU football.

Probably spot on with the revenue deal but is there still a minimum attendance figure needed to stay in "D1". -- FBS teams also have to meet minimum game attendance requirements (average 15,000 people in actual or paid attendance per home game)

Are there any potential scenarios... and I mean ANY where we would get to play Nebraska? I don't care where it would be played.

BUMP -  Rumors swirling that Alex has left the TCU program. Patterson down to drawing straws for starting QB this weekend.

What happened to the freshman?  Did he get injured?
It's a crap show down there.  https://www.dallasnews.com/sports/tcu-horned-frogs/2019/11/01/quarterback-justin-rogers-reportedly-transferring-from-tcu/

Academically used barely squeezed into the conference. I actually think they made a few exceptions. We obviously didn’t want you for your football team so I’d start concentrating on academics or you may not have a choice and be booted. I highly doubt Texas and the big 12 will let you back in but maybe the Mac or mountain west would be an option? Plus those two conferences you’d have a great opportunity to win consistently which is what matters to most fans on this board.

I would assume one thread would be enough to consolidate all the KSUcks bashing over at the Phog but apparently it takes like 6 different threads. they do NOT like us taters.

I have never seen this before lol



A good friend of mine is related to his ex wife and actually attended a tailgate that BTK attended. Didn't remember talking to him though.  It's just a small dang world ain't it?

What ever happened to that Wacky Cat guy that used to visit the Phog and get in arguments with everyone? Wasn't he some kind of enrollment counselor at Brown Mackie or something? As I recall, those threads provided some quality entertainment up until old Wacky would get too worked up, fly off the handle and then see himself out.

Alex Delton, former KSU qb, is garbage. TCU routinely overlooks us. Coming from a G5 conference, I imagine they put all their efforts into beating the bigger names to try and prove themselves and they sleep walk with us. Idk if they'll do that after losing last year and SMU kicking their asses, but i like our chances. 11am kickoff @ a team with less than stellar support is a great chance at a win.

I know we hate moral victories but last week + BC at least gives the guys confidence that we CAN win. We havent had that in awhile.
