(only because "Love" wasn't an option)
But Frank ain't walking through that door.

If we win out and are Big XII tournament and NCAA champions I will drive the oscar bandwagon
I call shotgun.  :excited: :ksu: :emawkid: I trust that _Fan has done the math on this one. 11 more wins and I say give oscar an extension.

oscar isn't going anywhere.
In the end, this is what we all hate to admit.

Guys, I think I'm depressed. Is there an online quiz so I can check my symptoms?

2012–13   Indiana   29–7   14–4   1st   NCAA Sweet Sixteen
2013–14   Indiana   17–15   7–11   T–8th   
2014–15   Indiana   20–14   9–9   T–7th   NCAA Round of 64
2015–16   Indiana   27–8   15–3   1st   NCAA Sweet Sixteen
2016–17   Indiana   15–12   5–9
Can't remember if Coach Weber started 2012-13 or 13-14 - either way that's one more torn-a-ment than we've had during that time. At least he has a little passion - maybe he could be a mash-up of oscar & Frank? Probably an upgrade from oscar (he can recruit, right?), but would be pretty underwhelming. Unfortunately, if this is oscar's last lap around the track, I think we're in for an underwhelming choice anyway. Man, K-State basketball used to be so fun . . .  :angry: :cry: :bawl:

I wish our seniors would make a statement like this guy:

Should have tried to pound it down lower, DJamer was getting the foul advantage, and we never really did anything to overly exploit it.
To me, this is key to our success. DJamer should score 20 a game for the rest of the season. Every damn game the announcers point out that DJamer has the highest FG% in the league. It's like we don't scout our own team.  :bang:

I keep hoping (gotta stop doing that to myself) that DJamer's Leadership + Wes' Leadership = Jake Pullen's Leadership
We need them to hold a senior press conference and declare that they are NOT playing in the NIT.

We're going to finish on a good win streak too.
This. He'll start winning impossible games. It will start on Monday. It will be like his 3rd/4th win vs KU and that will save him under Currie.
I think this too. It's very Brucey of him. Beating KU this year gives him life for another season. Man, this sucks. Can we beat KU and still not make either the torn-a-ment or the NIT?  :confused:

Kansas State Basketball / Re: I've had it with Wes
« on: February 01, 2017, 10:48:31 PM »
I really don't understand what people's issue is with Wes, I think it is based on people assigning him ideal attributes because of how he looks.
For me, it's the flashes of brilliance he shows. He'll take off from the free throw line and jam it down everyone's throats. He'll stutter step and sink a three. He'll ball out and steal the ball to dunk it on the other end.

I love Wes and I want to love him full time. But, he's just so inconsistent. He disappears for long stretches. As a senior he (and DJamer) just need to put this team on their shoulders like Jake did. Or, maybe I should stop caring about basketball.  :bang:

one thing about oscar is that he has an innate ability to balance the fulcrum.  a loss would really shift the pendulum and that just doesn't happen with oscar.
I'm not sure which force is stronger, oscar's fulcrum balancing ability vs. oscar's teams' inability to win on the road? Finally! This game has intrigue enough to make it watchable.

According to Pew reasearch, illegal Mexicans are leaving america, so this problem should work itself out.
LOL at people who think that illegal = Mexican. You poor sheltered human being. Expired visas anyone?

Mr. Taco Trucks on every corner is the prototype of the Trump Latino enthusiast, you really want to cast your lot with THAT guy?

VERY few immigrants come to the USA thinking it's the land of handouts. Ironically, despite anti-immigrant fear-mongering, immigrants are the ones keeping the TRUE American Dream of hard work and a better tomorrow alive. It's kind of inherent in the country's DNA. If we lower in-migration to the USA, our country dies (because, you know, demographics). If you ever want to come see the American Dream alive and well, go to an immigrant enclave and you'll marvel at the entrepreneurship, hard work, and optimism.

Always root 'Cats.

..and mean, you can't write a more perfect script. My only hope is that if we do lose*, it will be another Bruceketball collapse.

*I want us to win... but just don't see it.
'Grats to Brad. Until this team proves it can win on the road, I'm going to assume all roadies are "Ls."  :Crybaby:

he also told the team once at haltime in AMes that they made him want to blow his head off with a  shotgun.
Sounds about right. They've played some horrible 1st halves in Ames.  :billdance:

Clemson obviously prayed harder before the game after hearing Watson's & Dabo's post game interviews.
Coach Snyder one time said something like "God has children on both sides of the ball, I don't think he's pulling for one team over the other."

Doesn't it just come down to whether you want oscar as our coach or not?  I do not.  That is my position, the rest is academic.
Not 100%. I don't want oscar as our coach. But he isn't 100% to blame for the loss last night. Other variables:

1) Aforementioned poor officiating.
2) Academy awards to all of the Tech floppers (is related to #1).
3) Where the heck was Wes going?
4) We've improved tremendously in FT shooting (could be coaching, could be individual initiative, could be both) - except in crucial situations at the end of the game!
5) Why not put put Maurice in when you have Wade & DJamer with 3 (and 4) fouls each? This was a bad coaching move.
6) We failed to rebound on Tech's missed FT.

All of this adds up (I liked MIR's point - none of this is mutually exclusive) to our team has not learned how to close out close games (maybe we have at home?) on the road. Period. We need to learn how to do that if we're going to the torn-a-ment.

Forgot who said it earlier, but I could tell we wouldn't hold on once we missed the front end of the 1 and 1.  :curse:

How do we match up with Baylor? (maybe I don't want to hear the answer . . . )

i'm most surprised by our non-dumbassery

i fully expected to turn the ball over at a much higher % than we have so far but truthfully we're not far enough along in conference to know who or what this team is.  tubby has tt playing well and tonight will be a good litmus test for the bruceketcats.  i'm sure united supermarket arena will be rocking tonight.
You know, I thought Tubby was still there too. I watched a few minutes of their game the other night and there is another coach there now (not sure of his name). What happened with Tubby? I looked him up and he's at Memphis now . . .  :dunno: :ck:

Kansas State Basketball / Re: Will the Big 12 Issue a Statement

Would have went to overtime without our best player. Take the 2 point L and call it a moral victory #oscar
Our best player this game was on the floor, he missed a three to win the game. DJamer didn't play much anyway.
Not saying DJamer is our best player, but I think even the refs noticed that he was unstoppable by the KU defense. He was calling for the ball every time down. When they fed him he delivered. Despite VERY limited minutes due to fouls, he had 10 points. If DJamer would've had a foul to give when he fouled out, and IF we feed him the ball at the end, we win.

Of course, if Ifs and Buts were candy and nuts . . .

Kansas State Basketball / Re: What gets us in the tournament? 10-8 or 11-7?
« on: December 23, 2016, 02:30:16 PM »
IMHO - a win apiece over the top 10s (KU, Baylor, and WVU), picking up a win or two on the road, and anything 9 - 9* or better and we're "in." That's no small task. If we can get good leadership out of DJamer and Wes, plus some solid guard play out of Kamau and Barry in league play, who have great potential. Having the wildcards of Dean and Sneed show up big during league play could make a big difference.


I don't feel too confident in our bench (beyond Sneed). I hope not to be here in March with a broken heart (again). Though, the consolation for that could be that oscar is unemployed.

(*edited from 8 - 10 to 9 - 9, 20 wins is more powerful "looking" than 19)
