The halftime score from the official Twitter account had no replies, the post game tweet had 3 K-State replies and 10 replies from idiotic gen z Coal Aggie kids with a different version of the really stupid " u just losed to..." meme. One of those 3 replies was from me pointing out just how apathetic the fan base has become. If they don't make a change and a really good one, next November in Bramlage will absolutely be the Octagon of Room like KU fans have been predicting for a decade now. It's stunning how few people even care enough to even give a meh.


Covid has been a blessing to the AD in this respect. At least they have plausible deniability as to why there are only a small handful of people at games this year. In an alternate universe without Covid where the team’s results are the same, I doubt attendance for this season would be much different. And hoo boy would that look bad.

Kansas State Basketball / Re: Is this the lowest point KSU B-ball history?

This season may narrowly avoid being the lowest point in K-State basketball, but I can guarantee that being #7 and losing to this K-State team tonight absolutely is the lowest point in OU basketball history. We're their Fort Hays State.

Anthony Beane was incredibly impactful for us in that he single-handedly won like 8 games in two years for us in the last 20 seconds, and some really meaningful, big upsets. @KU in ‘94, in Bramlage over the #1 or #2 Sooners, and a win over a similarly ranked Mizzou. Dude was absolute nails in the clutch. In fact Mitch called him "Mr. Clutch".

Kansas State Football / Re: Future schedule update...
« on: February 11, 2021, 07:51:38 PM »
It's the best schedule I've ever seen for us. Only FBS schools and a P5.

Huh? The Southern Illinois Salukis are 100% an FCS team.

One crisp winter morning in Sweden, a cute little girl named Greta woke up to a perfect world, one where there were no petroleum products ruining the earth. She tossed aside her cotton sheet and wool blanket and stepped out onto a dirt floor covered with willow bark that had been pulverized with rocks. “What’s this?” she asked.
“Pulverized willow bark,” replied her fairy godmother.
“What happened to the carpet?” she asked.
“The carpet was nylon, which is made from butadiene and hydrogen cyanide, both made from petroleum,” came the response.
Greta smiled, acknowledging that adjustments are necessary to save the planet, and moved to the sink to brush her teeth where instead of a toothbrush, she found a willow, mangled on one end to expose wood fibre bristles.
“Your old toothbrush?” noted her godmother, “Also nylon.”
“Where’s the water?” asked Greta.
“Down the road in the canal,” replied her godmother, ‘Just make sure you avoid water with cholera in it”
“Why’s there no running water?” Greta asked, becoming a little peevish.
“Well,” said her godmother, who happened to teach engineering at MIT, “Where do we begin?” There followed a long monologue about how sink valves need elastomer seats and how copper pipes contain copper, which has to be mined and how it’s impossible to make all-electric earth-moving equipment with no gear lubrication or tires and how ore has to be smelted to a make metal, and that’s tough to do with only electricity as a source of heat, and even if you use only electricity, the wires need insulation, which is petroleum-based, and though most of Sweden’s energy is produced in an environmentally friendly way because of hydro and nuclear, if you do a mass and energy balance around the whole system, you still need lots of petroleum products like lubricants and nylon and rubber for tires and asphalt for filling potholes and wax and iPhone plastic and elastic to hold your underwear up while operating a copper smelting furnace and . . .
“What’s for breakfast?” interjected Greta, whose head was hurting.
"Fresh, range-fed chicken eggs,” replied her godmother. “Raw.”
“How so, raw?” inquired Greta.
“Well, . . .” And once again, Greta was told about the need for petroleum products like transformer oil and scores of petroleum products essential for producing metals for frying pans and in the end was educated about how you can’t have a petroleum-free world and then cook eggs. Unless you rip your front fence up and start a fire and carefully cook your egg in an orange peel like you do in Boy Scouts. Not that you can find oranges in Sweden anymore.
“But I want poached eggs like my Aunt Tilda makes,” lamented Greta.
“Tilda died this morning,” the godmother explained. “Bacterial pneumonia.”
“What?!” interjected Greta. “No one dies of bacterial pneumonia! We have penicillin.” 
“Not anymore,” explained godmother “The production of penicillin requires chemical extraction using isobutyl acetate, which, if you know your organic chemistry, is petroleum-based. Lots of people are dying, which is problematic because there’s not any easy way of disposing of the bodies since backhoes need hydraulic oil and crematoriums can’t really burn many bodies using as fuel Swedish fences and furniture, which are rapidly disappearing - being used on the black market for roasting eggs and staying warm.”
This represents only a fraction of Greta’s day, a day without microphones to exclaim into and a day without much food, and a day without carbon-fibre boats to sail in, but a day that will save the planet.
Tune in tomorrow when Greta needs a root canal and learns how Novocain is synthesized.


people are definitely going to read that

Has a single penalty been called on Tampa Bay?

I have always loved Oregon State. They're super K-Statey and Corvallis is green Manhattan. Nothing but good things to say about that place, and I can be trusted as an authority on this because I stayed there for ~48 hours in 2006. I'm happy for them on this nice new stade addition but I have to say I always had a soft spot for how weird and piecemeal the whole stadium was. A bizarre architectural amalgam of the past and the future. Now it'll be really nice all the way around, but it won't be weird. :cry:

Can confirm oscar sucks ass

16
I was gonna start the thread for him but I too was unclear on what "outdoor equipment" meant. Not enough of a manly man I guess, plz send T's and P's :frown:







But if he doesn't in the next 24 hours then I'm going to anyway because it seems like BAC's got some great stuff cookin'

17
Thanks SB and BAC...Maybe a future thread comparing Qatz to outdoor equipment and accesories will allow redemption.

The time is now. Start that thread and let’s find out.

Not sure if it was mentioned when this thread was cookin’, but Jalen Pickle

Mostly excusable yes, but certainly losing at home to FHSU is never excusable and all the oscar losers should never stop being reminded of this loss oh and also #TheStreak

oscar needs to replace shooter as his agent with greg.
My success threshold for next year is a positive overall record, winning every non con home, and restarting THE STREAK. Give him a bonus under the table if he can finish in the Top 4 of the Big 12 for 2021-22

Greg, I like you but this is incredibly losery. Oscar started at K-State what, seven seasons ago? Eight? This one and last year we finished/will finish either dead last or nearly last in the Big XII.  Oscar has been here forever and we're as bad as we've eer been. We're about to snap a 50+ year streak which is basically a layup. "If we have a positive overall record next year" is a preeeetty low bar for someone going into their eighth or ninth season at a school. Fire this dude yesterday.

One further frame with which to assess these and which one, if any, is better: how close did the team come to making it to the final four in the actual E8 game? The 2010 team barely lost in the Elite 8 (by 7 points after all the free throws at the end) to Butler, who went on to play for the national championship (and lose only because they missed a last-second shot to Duke).  Meanwhile, in the E8 game for the 2018 team, we got absolutely pasted by 16 the 11 seed Loyola, who would go on to get absolutely rocked by Michigan in the Final Four game.

If you contend that it's a push between the two, look to the game that team lost to knock them out of the tournament, and who they lost it to.

















Also the 2010 team was way better and the tourney run was better and Frank rules and oscar stinks as we've all known since the day he was hired.

K-State really should've listened to Testy Westy's magnets in 2015.

I just don't like the 4/4 version of the National Anthem.  (Except the original one Whitney Houston did of course)

Should have been done once, and once only.  Nobody can out-Whitney Whitney.  That's all.

Just MHO.

It wasn't all 4/4, and that's what makes it so unique, imo. Once she got to the "And the rocket's red glare" part, it switched back to 3/4. There was also some other time sig mixture in there before that...and dat rubato! :love: dat early hemiola :love: :love:   <---that's for @Cartierfor3

All that mixture is a little disorienting at first and it's probably better and more enjoyable upon repeat listens, at least it was for me. I thought she was good, but really the best part is the band's arrangement. All you people who played in band go give it another listen -- it's amazing.
