THIS is not getting enough love and affirmation. If Mahomes can bring the Super Bowl Trophy AND Whataburger to KC, he will go DIRECTLY into KC HOF annals.  :drool:  :Woot:  :crossfingers:
What a beautiful human being

i do not understand how anyone can cheer or pull for El Tri.
I'm Mexican on my dad's side. So when the USA is not playing: ¡Viva El Tri!

For international soccer, kind of like others here I go country, continent, hemisphere. Other than that, I'll root for the underdog (especially vs. Italy, England, Germany, Brazil, or Argentina).

BTW - I loved Webber calling the game. Almost as good (but different than) Gus.

maybe the difference being one is a PBP guy, the other is not.  They should put them together.l
Ultimate dream team crew.  :love:  Who do we want on the sidelines in that scenario? Holly Rowe? Too bad Gus is signed over at Fox ...

Obviously, but if we would have played that double out someone is getting a layup with Gabriel away from the rim. When we allowed the defense to reset Gabriel was in position to give help and contest the layup.
If FB is a game of inches, the BB is a game of centimeters. He came within a whisker of blocking that shot. But I'll take it!  :love:

There's no doubt that since the injury he's been a diff'rent Stokes.

I learned that I don't know very much about coding here on the board . . .

I also came to the conclusion that I can still cheer on the basketball team despite my contempt for oscar. (but my pessimism tells me we won't make it to the first weekend in the tournament)

This next generation doesn’t have the cajones (Mexican for balls) to enrage entire fan bases and get news media/school presidents involved.
I believe cojones is the word you're looking for . . . (or, if you want to say it like a Mexican you should say huevos)   :thumbsup:

Patrick Ewing to Georgetown :surprised:

Oh man, this is going to start a firestorm of "Mitch Richmond to K-State" rumors amongst the tucks.

I didn't realize Mitch is on staff with Mullins at St John's.

VERY interesting . . . (would definitely take over Jank)

What? Why?
Generally anti-Jank. IDK why.

who knows who is wearing the professionally made john currie full body suit and mask?
I think it's Phil Fulmer, the size is off, but who else has the motive?

Just rough ridin' do it.
I concur. #FTB

at this point, miami is not a better job than south carolina.  even for frank.
Just imagine if the money was the same. Miami vs. Columbia (advantage Miami: place, family, etc.); would be more of a maintenance and boosting to the next level kind of gig, Frank has proven he can build, maintain and boost (with and without the GRCOAT). Plus there are just intangibles about 'home,' that might appeal to Frank.

In the end, who knows? Maybe Frank is a lifer at USCarolina - unless Duke, Kentucky, Florida, KU (gulp!) or Indiana come calling? No tengo la menor idea. In the mean time, Go Frank!

39
I mean, to have any real memories of K-State in the Final 4 you are at least 65 years old.
This makes me very, very sad. Coach Altman mentioned the 'almost' Final Four in '88. That plus the 'almost' Final Four in 2010 are two of my fondest memories of K-State basketball. (and I wasn't even a legitimate 'Cat fan in '88!). Losing Lon and losing Frank are two of my worst K-State basketball memories.

All that said, you have to give Frank some props. He gets his guys to play tough and to love one another. In tight situations where you need to manufacture 'luck,' that's important. I think Frank is firmly at S. Carolina until Larranaga retires and the U comes calling. I hope he wins the whole damn thing this year. Are two more opposite personalities than Roy and Frank?

Knowing what we know now, the probability would've been pretty good. But, we would've needed some additional talent (especially a big or two). Would've been fun to watch . . .  :cry:

Did Hocutt hire Larranaga? (instead of Frank . . . ) I can't remember if he had already gone to TTU yet.

42
I don't think the K-State women or Frank's Cocks have much of a chance at winning their next games.
You're really harshing my buzz, MIR. Geez!

How did everyone feel about Frank's suit?
It was 100% Frank. It's part of his charm (oversized, ill-fitting suits). Does he have Gamecock cowboy boots yet?

44
Doesn't look like purple to me, more pink?

I think General Myers is focused on the AD search. Next priority is to make sure there is a bona fide succession plan for our football program. We may want to keep all basketball discussion to the WBB team and South Carolina/Frank. That's all that matters at this point. I think oscar earned his 'pass' for the next few months.

What are the Lady 'Cats' chances against Stanford? Stanford's really good, no?

Can Frank take down Baylor?

For $6 million you could reanimate or clone Jack Hartman. That's what we should do.
Could $6 m also just rejuvenate Tex? Better option, IMHO (actually had a final four or two, didn't he?).

Jankovich is my favorite candidate otherwise.
DO.NOT.WANT.

Hoiberg sounds intriguing (are the Bulls already done with him?)
Sampson same (doesn't he have one of those oscar Pearl clauses or something?)
For that kind of scratch ($6 M, plus a oscar-like $1 or $2 M per year) couldn't we get that Marshall dude from Wichita State? - not sure I would want him, but he seems to be consistent in fielding good squads.
Time to let Francisco Martínez go, hermanos. It's hard to accept, but we have to do it.

48
I agree, but honestly, I'd have to see who the other three teams are to be able to wrap my head around how we go about winning those last 2 games.
I'm still trying to wrap my head around how we win a "must win" game, FINALLY. I don't think Wake Forest will be much different than Tech, Oklahoma State or any other team we split with or played close all year. Here's hoping the guys finally learned how to close one out FTW.  :bwpopcorn:  :ksu:

49
7 games to win it all. I thought we were just talking about the road to the final 4, though.
Why settle for the Final 4 when the Natty is available? (Huggins, 2006 - paraphrased)  :ksu:

50
Only 5 games away, K-S-U. Don't give up hope yet. If we can beat Baylor twice, we can beat Wake Forest, Cincinnati, UCLA, Kentucky, and North Carolina.
Seven games, no? It will be fun to take on Wichita State (I'm assuming they handle Kentucky) in the Sweet 16.  :ksu:  :bwpopcorn:
