We Must Protect This Titletown! (Titletown Defense Thread)
« on: December 30, 2013, 10:22:13 AM »
As everyone here is well aware Kansas State University pulled off a historic coup last season by stealing the Titletown crown from Texas.  Before this historic season the Titletown crown had resided in Austin since 2006 when the Longhorns stole the crown away from Stanford(Titletown Champion in 2000).

The question is will any team be able to steal Titletown away from the Katz? Conference Realignment has certainly helped the Katz defense of Titletown by increasing the size of every conference except the big12.

Lets take a look at this years contenders!

              FBall                  Bball(Current Ranking)                Baseball(Last Season)
Pac12    Stanford              9-3                                             5th
Big12      Baylor               10-1(#12)                                   5th   
Big10     Mich St               11-1(#5)                                    7th
ACC         FSU                    8-3                                           2nd
SEC       Auburn                 6-3                                           12th


Teams to Keep an eye on

Michigan St- The Spartans are the favorite to win the Big10 in bball which would give them the vaunted 2maw. If they are serious about taking the Titletown crown from us they will need their baseball team to step up after finishing 7th last year. They did win a baseball conference title in 2011 so it is not out of the realm of possibility.


Baylor- The Bears have never won a title in Bball but Scott Drew has the boys playing well this year(Ranked 12th). It is doubtful that they can win the big12 over OSU/KU but we need to keep an eye on their progress. I don't really know anything about their baseball team but we can worry about that if and when the time comes. 

Florida State- The Seminoles are pretty salty in Fball and Baseball but I'm having a real hard time imagining them winning the ACC in bball. If that happens we may have to batten down the hatches and go to defcon 2 during baseball season.



Once every squad has been eliminated from Titletown contention you know what to do!

Titletown is an elite fraternity. No need to protect it. If someone earns entry then Good for them.

Do the 72 dolphins cheer for other teams to go Undefeated? Nope, didn't think so.

Having some more bluebloods in the clubhouse wouldn't be bad, but definitely no Baylor scrubs getting in.

In all honesty, I'd be happy if we are the reigning Titlestown champs forever.

UPDATE-

Only one real challenger this year and that is Michigan State.

They are currently 9-2 and tied for 1st in the big 10 with Michigan. Iowa is 2 games back and Wisconsin is 3 games back.

MSU's upcoming schedule includes puds like Nub/NU/Purdue and it all may come down to their February 23rd game against Michigan.

LETS GO BIG BLUE!

How is Michigan State's baseball team? Do colleges in Michigan have baseball or is it all hockey and lacrosse?

They won the BIG in 2011 and were 7th last year.

Indiana will win the Big 10 this year.

Yes, great thread. May pin it every season until the last contender drops out and we smoke our annual titletown cigars.

yeah, sd beat me to this but I can help you with a quick flow chart for determining who is good in a sport.

Is it a sport that Kansas State University participates in? 

If the answer is "yes", one of the good teams in that sport is Kansas State University
If the answer is "no", no one gives a crap

keep that in your wallet

When Samuel L Jackson asks "What's in YOUR wallet?", should we tell him about this?

So this may belong in the coach carousel thread but what are the chances Ford and/or Drew are fired after this year?

Correct. You cant even think about stealing titletown away from the cats unless you win the title in America's favorite sport.
