I hope you are all happy, healthy, and full of turkey.


Souhtwell might be able to find a spot at the end of the bench, but there's no way KU would put him on scholarship.

Essentially Flyertalk / Help plan beems' trip to Manhattan
« on: September 28, 2013, 12:46:32 PM »
I'll be back in the great state of Kansas, October 24th through the 29th, and I'm thinking about making a trip to Manhattan.  Any tips or advice on where I should go/what I should do?  Also, if any goEMAW'ers want to meet up for a TSC pak while I'm in town, shoot me a PM! 


The New Joe Montgomery Birther Pit / Iran seeking diplomacy?
« on: September 26, 2013, 01:41:36 PM »

Iran's new government, stepping up a campaign to project a more moderate image abroad, said on Wednesday it wants to jump-start talks with world powers to resolve a decade-long dispute over its nuclear program and hoped for a deal in three to six months.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif is set to hold talks on the nuclear issue on Thursday with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry as well as diplomats from Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany, in a rare encounter between top American and Iranian officials.

"The only way forward is for a timeline to be inserted into the negotiations that's short," new Iranian President Hassan Rohani was quoted as telling the Washington Post, through a translator, during a visit to New York, where he addressed the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday.

"The shorter it is, the more beneficial it is to everyone. If it's three months that would be Iran's choice, if it's six months that's still good. It's a question of months not years," said Rohani when asked for a time frame for resolving Iran's nuclear dispute with the West.

Potentially good news, right?


Kansas State Football / Weis sucks
« on: September 15, 2013, 12:53:16 PM »
You guys were right.  Weis is a joke.  His offense is outdated and his play calling is atrocious.  The sad thing is that KU's defense was good enough last night to win.  My only hope is that Weis hires an offensive coordinator and switches to a spread system next year (well, either that, or he resigns).

Kansas State Basketball / oscar being oscar
« on: August 12, 2013, 10:53:39 AM »

“I had somebody when I was at Illinois, years later, say the worst thing I did was win too quick because now you raise the expectations,” Weber said, recalling that his second Illini squad went 37-2 and finished as the runner-up in the NCAA Tournament. “We won the most games in the history of the NCAA. No one’s ever done it again, and I don’t know if anyone ever will. It’s a fun thing.

...except KU won 37 games in '08, and Kentucky did it again in '12.  Nice try, oscar!


Kansas State Football / is "Tate" Snyder short for "'Tater?"
« on: July 26, 2013, 11:17:56 AM »
Is Tate the original 'tater?

Credit to President Bush and the old school Republicans for taking a stand against the teabaggers.

"We're a nation of immigrants and we must uphold that tradition which has strengthened our country in so many ways," Bush said. "We can uphold our traditions of assimilating immigrants and honoring our heritage of a nation built on the rule of law. But we have a problem, the laws governing the immigration system aren't working. The system is broken."

"It says something about our country that people all around the world are willing to leave their homes and leave their families and risk everything to come to our country," he said. "Their talent and hard work and love of freedom have helped us become the leader of the world. Our generation must ensure that America remains a beacon of liberty and the most hopeful society that the world has ever known. We must always be proud to welcome people as fellow Americans."


This kind of reminds me of the catbacker incident in Lawrence several years ago.  Scary stuff. 

Kansas State Basketball / Daxipad to Aisle 1, please
« on: June 14, 2013, 12:35:41 PM »

There was a time — not so long ago — when Kansas University freshman Brannen Greene had little in common with the 800 crimson-and-blue-loving youths who watched him erupt for a game-high 21 points in Wednesday’s Bill Self campers game in Horejsi Center.

“It’s funny the way it started off. I used to hate KU, and I know that’s a strong word. I used to hate KU,” Greene said after hitting five threes in the Blue Team’s 91-76 victory over the Red Squad.

“Once the recruiting process started, I looked into the school. When I took my visit, I just fell in love with it,” added the 6-foot-7 small forward from Tift County High in Tifton, Ga., who orally committed to KU in December of 2011.

Kansas State Basketball / Let's talk about the Big 12
« on: March 26, 2013, 12:24:10 PM »
Will the Big 12 ever expand back to 12 teams, and will there ever be another legit basketball program in this conference besides KU? 

Kansas State Basketball / K-State/Gonzaga rematch in Sweet Sixteen?
« on: March 18, 2013, 05:57:14 PM »
How good is Gonzaga, and what do you guys think about a potential rematch?  TIA.

Kansas State Basketball / Celebrate good times, come on!
« on: March 16, 2013, 12:06:14 PM »
KU and K-State (aka best friends in real life) are now the gold standard when it comes to college basketball.  With a combined record of 55-11 (28-8), the Sunflower Showdown is now the premier rivalry in the country.  Duke/UNC?  LOL.  Kentucky/Louisville?  Yeah... right.  Syracuse/Georgetown?  Hmmm... maybe if I liked watching loser schools playing loser basketball.

This is it, ladies and gentlemen.  This is the moment we have all been waiting for.  It's time to show the world what the state of Kansas is all about.

The New Joe Montgomery Birther Pit / Good news for the US economy
« on: March 08, 2013, 12:03:21 PM »

The latest report on the state of the U.S. job market offered good news all around, the best reading in months on the state of the economy.

Jobs? There were 236,000 more of them on U.S. employers’ payrolls in February than in January. The unemployment rate? Down to 7.7 percent, from 7.9 percent. Wages? Private-sector pay rose 0.6 percent as people both worked more hours and at a higher hourly wage.


Kansas State Football / Beems KU Recruiting Thread
« on: March 03, 2013, 01:22:35 PM »

Best running back in the state since Sproles.  Weis is dominating Old Balls on the recruiting trail. 

Since the right wing loves to bitch and moan about how much President Obama goes on vacation:

Here's how Mr. Obama stacks up against more recent Presidents, if he keeps pace with 168 vacation days over eight years. President George W. Bush took all or part of 297 days at his Texas ranch. Bill Clinton took 174 days at Martha's Vineyard and Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and Ronald Reagan vacationed 349 days at his California ranch over eight years.
