This very minor but public act of battery would negatively impact most peoples' job prospects.  However, Samuel Powers here will always be able to find a job in the Wildcat Way Cult.

Spracne is a creep and stalking this kid's family. Really thought he was one of the good ones.

The past few weeks have been enlightening, I just really never pictured Sprac's as being a member of the 0 to butthurt in .8 seconds ku fan type.  But here you go.

The one thing I do appreciate about my little ku buddies is that they are very Nathan Thurm like in their discussions about court/field storming.  I do give them credit for that.

Bro, I'm good.  If you recall, I was expecting to lose on Monday.  What I did not expect is for the post-game narrative to be about the behavior of K-State fans and how it is symptomatic of a bigger problem that needs to be addressed.  If I were upset--and I'm not--I would take comfort in the fact that no one is talking about the game itself but rather the behavior of KSU fans afterwards.  Here we are two days later, and ESPN has a story on the front page about K-State's contrition.  It's like WOW, you've just pulled off the most improbable upset, and you can't even enjoy it because everyone is frowning towards you and giving you stern looks while solemnly shaking their heads from side to side.

Seriously though, the kid made a stupid mistake and it's time to move on. It's scary how the internet can pretty much destroy someone's life for doing one stupid thing. He did it, he owned it, now let's stop joking about it. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/15/magazine/how-one-stupid-tweet-ruined-justine-saccos-life.html
I've said it before and I'll say it again, K-State fans could have beheaded the entire KU team at midcourt, and K-State fans would be celebrating it this morning.  They are the ISIS of Big 12 fanbases.

Yes, this has not detracted from my enjoyment at all. If anything, it has drawn more attention to the win.

it's like days later and everyone's still talking about how ksu whipped ku's ass for like the 12th year in a row and how mad ku fans are that our fans partied too hard. it's amazing. if ksu had just whipped their asses and gone home quietly it would be a snoozefest because our basketball team sucks either way.

It's been pretty great actually.  For people that pay attention; the hypocrisy, butthurt and willingness to at least threaten violence over a basketball loss has been enlightening, albeit not surprising.  It's really ku one sport/T-Shirt nation at its finest.

I was talking to an acquaintance yesterday who is from New York.  He's a casual hoops fan who doesn't really know much about K-State but knows they've been struggling this year.  His comment to me, completely unprovoked mind you, was "it's like they can't even win without embarrassing themselves."

New York!

My grandpa used to say, "It doesn't matter if they remember you as an bad person or a saint, so long as they remember you."

Everyone remembers him as a huge bad person.
