Kansas State Football / 2023 Adversity

Injury thread reminded me I forgot to post yesterday when adversity season really kicked off.

SPORTS EXTRA / Sep 18, 2023
Responding to Adversity
Social Buttons
By: D. Scott Fritchen

If there's a silver lining to Kansas State's 30-27 loss at Missouri it is this: The Wildcats have been here before.

K-State came off a 17-10 home loss to Tulane in the non-conference finale last season to beat No. 6 Oklahoma, 41-34, in Norman, Oklahoma.
It faced adversity again nearly a month later but followed a 38-28 loss at No. 8 TCU with a historic 48-0 pounding of No. 9 Oklahoma State in Manhattan.
As for a 34-27 loss to No. 24 Texas? K-State went to Baylor and handled the Bears, 31-3, in Waco, Texas.
K-State has been down before. It hasn't stayed down for long.
"We have to learn from it because this is what Big 12 games are going to be about," K-State head coach Chris Klieman said. "We're going to be in a lot of one-score games, and we have to find ways to win down the stretch. I'm not disappointed at all in our players. I thought we played hard."
"We've had adversity before," Klieman continued. "How are you going to respond to the adversity?"
No. 15 K-State saw its perfect non-conference record end on a walk-off 61-yard field goal by Missouri's Harrison Mevis. It took the longest field goal in SEC history to beat the defending Big 12 Champions in Columbia, Missouri.
"We've got a challenge now," K-State quarterback Will Howard said. "Last year, you look at every game after we lost and we came back from it stronger and learned from it. That's what we have to do this week. We have to let it motivate us and not bring us down at all.
"I know we're going to be fine."
Offense 23 SE

K-State went 4-1 in games decided by single digits against Big 12 Conference opponents last season. That included the Wildcats' 31-28 win over No. 3 TCU to capture the Big 12 title — a game decided in overtime on the strength of Ty Zentner's 31-yard field goal at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Now K-State, 2-1, prepares to face UCF, 3-0, in its Big 12 opener in Saturday's 7 p.m. kickoff (FS1) at LHC Bill Snyder Family Stadium.
UCF comes off a 48-14 home win over Villanova on Saturday. The Golden Knights opened the season with a 56-6 win over Kent State followed by an 18-16 win at Boise State.
K-State and UCF last squared off as non-conference foes in a 17-13 win by the Wildcats on September 25, 2010 amid the one of the weirdest storm systems ever to hit the Flint Hills.
Well, another storm could be brewing.
Call it the purple storm.
"I'm not glad we lost, but I'm glad it was an early loss so we can bounce back and get that feeling and feel that adversity for us and propel us for this home game against UCF," K-State strong safety Kobe Savage said. "(We're) getting back to work on Monday, throwing (the Missouri loss) in the bag, watching what we can fix, and just have a new game plan for UCF."
It's a new week. And a new season.
The Wildcats know they cannot dwell on their lone setback heading into conference play.
"If you look at last year every time we went through something like this, we came back even harder the next week," K-State tight end Ben Sinnott said. "That's definitely the plan going forward."

The New Joe Montgomery Birther Pit / Explain fentanyl to me
« on: March 01, 2023, 09:33:47 PM »
I see lots of freakouts about fentanyl, a lot of it appearing to be some crap said to justify border walls or whatever.

Is fentanyl a drug that drug users seek out?  Looks more like it’s getting mixed into other drugs. Why? For whose gain? Do drug dealers or someone further up the chain do that because it’s cheaper and they can sell an amount of supposedly some drug at full price when it’s actually some part other drug and other part fentanyl. Is it that, from the perspective of the druggie, that sort of product will get them more mumped up and they’ll prefer that over regular illegal drugs? Does that still make economic sense when you will end up killing off those customers quicker?

Does any of this create any danger to me if I already don’t do any drugs? I’m aware that there might be more/worse zombies around, but if they OD quicker, does it even out?

Basically, I want to know 1) within the drug world, how the economics of this works, and 2) does any of this matter to regular persons?


Asking here on gE because

Woke up yesterday to a couple emails about having bought something from walmart in the middle of the night, along with a chase fraud alert.  Started with chase and got the card canceled, but it looks like this was purely a walmart hack and they used my chase card that was on file.  I got the walmart account all tightened up but I can still see the info of what went down.

The purchase was for a >$20 set of banker boxes, the carboard boxes you put files in.  They were to be delivered to a PO Box in a shitty city in the greater seattle metro, seems like coincidence.  But I've got a name and PO Box, and that they were delivered today (I won't have time to do a stakeout for the perp picking up this particular item this week).  Looking up the name and city, I can see an address for a shitty house associated with the guy, phone number, linkedin, facebook, etc.  Doesn't seem like the type who'd hack an account for $20 of boxes.

Also in my walmart account now are 2 other names and addresses, one for someone way out in eastern washington, like almost in idaho, and another in maryland.  Not sure what to make of those.

In contrast to nic's deal, as far as I know, I'm not out anything other than the hassle of canceling that credit card and updating the info many places.  But I'm pretty curious wtf.

Thoughts?  Is it a thing where hackers start with innocuous purchases sent to randoms before doing bigger crap?

@nicname, got any vacation time?

Which of these things do you continually espouse?

-Trump was installed by Putin and controlled by Putin

-The Biden Laptop was a classic Russian Intelligence Operation

-The 2016 election was hacked and stolen.  #blueanon has dissolved all nuance into a narrative that 2016 was hacked and stolen, thus Trump was an illegitimate President

-1/6 was a coup d' etat (I mean  :lol: :lol: :lol:)  It's like #blueanon has never paid any attention to the numerous coup d' etat's that the United States has engaged in (and that now beloved #blueanon anti-Trump hero John Bolton openly admitted to live on air)

-White supremacists are the greatest threat to our Democracy piled upon all things we don't like are a threat to Democracy 

On top of an entire operation of subterfuge such labeling all information that makes #blueanon and #blueanon politicians look bad as "disinformation".   Any narrative that #blueanon doesn't like is mis/disinformation.

Engaging in Zersetzung - A process of ongoing and sustained undermining, de-legitimization and political paralyzation

And #blueanon gets that label because they continually espouse crazy conspiracy theories.

do you know who played in and won this most recent college basketball tournament?

Kansas State Football / Quarterbacks

To qualify to play QB at KSU, the prospect has to be capable of motivating posts like this. The QB comp can be Bishop, Ell, or Sams. If they’re not in that mold, no thanks.

He's the closest thing we've had to ell roberson since ell roberson.

Inspired by this:

Everyone here likes to talk about the places we’ve been and would happily give you all the info you need plan a trip in the US.  Just tell us where you want to go. 

Has there ever been something gE didn’t collectively have the answer for, or at least great advice?

52% of americans say they have, whether having tested positive or just “knowing” they had it sans test.

*arguing with dax in his book thread

Instead, click on the post quoted in that book thread and argue with him in the thread it came from.

You will make things much easier on @hemmy and @XocolateThundarr when they have to print multiple copies of that whole thing and have to bind them.  T-Y.

Kansas State Football / 49.2%

EMAW bowl attendees, be very careful around louisiana'rs.  Straight stats indicate only 49.2% of them are "fully vaccinated."  I'm not seeing info yet on how few are boosted.

Which athletics program is worse when it comes to sexual misconduct, or are they fairly equivalent?

I think those are all the plausible options and that nobody's getting a J&J chaser, but let me know if I need to add anything.

I just read this alleged dlew post:

i can't denigrate marcus watts.  his performance against OSU with his club arm was legendary.

Sams is a really great one.  He stunk and we all thought he was like, legitimately better than actual good qb jake waters.

Is something wrong w/his computer that made that be his words instead of what he posted?  Is it on my end w/the words getting mumped with?

Goddamn, how great was this movie?

During the 1980s Muhammed Omar, joined the Afghan mujahideen in their war against the Soviet Union and the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan.

He founded the Taliban movement in 1994.

First off, CIA funding dwindled to nearly nothing years before the Taliban even came into existence (and was funneled through Pakistan).  So if you're trying to say the U.S. directly armed the Taliban, you're wrong (as usual). 

The Taliban was formed by Pashtun clerics and students, some of which were in the Mujahedeen at some point in time, but had become disillusioned in the control of Afghanistan by the actual former Mujahedeen warlords.   Substantial rank and file came from the students in the schools.   The Pakistani's and the Saudi's created the Taliban, they just happened to have a leader with Mujahideen ties. 

In fact the new Mujahideen now resists the Taliban in Panjshir.

Did we not push $200 million to them as late as 1992?

Who is them?  The Pakistani's?

This reminds me of this and I love it.

Especially if you were with him as he was going through it this past year or know what his family is already doing or needs, but also anyone who has something in mind, post any ideas here.

I'd have to be educated on what the roadblocks to date have been, but I was thinking that maybe gE takes up his cause of getting Gene and KSU to add wrestling and figures out what needs to be done aside from his steady PI and gets that accomplished.

Sic BSAC on this guy if warranted?

Kansas State Football / Why are the BSFS goalposts white

instead of yellow?


They are and he is hilarious and I want to be able to occasionally post something about dax's posts there but I don't want to post in them and ruin how it's just dax talking to himself.  So this thread can be for that purpose.
