They are terrible, have to wonder how many more seasons bobs got left.

So what do we have to do to get in? Is 20 wins the magic number (irregardless of who the dubs and ells are against)?

20 would be a good start, but I don't know if it's the magic number.

It would be really nice if we could beat @ISU or @OU.

Also, something that I've thought about is how we look when/if Wade is back. The committee has been generous in the past with teams that have had a star player out with injury. Something to think about anyway.

8-10 in big 12 play with a win over A&M gets it done I think.  I suppose if the 8 wins are all against the bottom half we could be in trouble.

aTm isn't any good. It wouldn't be much of a resume boost IMO.

Guys, I think we are going to make the NCAA Tournament this year. Our Cats are a p flawed team, but you have to believe that this team is at least better than above average NCAA seed wise. The were basically average last season and everyone is back. This is oscar's first real crescendo at K-State and it's not bad but it isn't looking like a great one.

I think the expectations set were out of reach logistically, but we're fans and we buy in cuz that's what we do. We want to go apeshit because our team could win the conference and/ or set itself up for a deep run in March. Can we get that done this year? Maybe.

How low does the rebuilding year take us? I don't see what help we get next season makes up for what we lose. Are we starting a Woolyesque B12 winning percentage in the grill next season? Maybe.

oscar limbo.

Perhaps they can sell tons of playing time, a recent elite 8 and a car or something for some ballers. How cool would it be to get a one-and-doner again? rough ridin' Michael Beasley 2.0. Hell I'd be through the roof getting a Bill Walker.

That reminds me how incredible it is that 2010 team was a legitimate National Title contender with nary more than an NBA cup of coffee on the roster until Rodney McGruder decided to become the most physically fit basketball basketball player on the planet. Is SR The Flush Jr. better than Sophomore Angel Rodriguez? Is Claws a better draft project than Rodney? Some NBA scouts believed X could be an early entry coming into the season because of a nice run in a tournament that is a crap shoot.

College basketball is exciting.

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

I’m scared to let let Deans foot touch the floor at the fOOD as it will surely be the end of his foot.

Word, they are one of the best 25 teams currently playing roundball at the collegiate level.

you know something?  initially, i was pissed.  uber pissed.  then after synthesizing the snub, i decided it's better to play the underdog/david role
so it may seem that maybe this week's duds are actually next week's studs?  cava?
