Does this championship change anything for you?  For me it does.

I feel compelled to "accept" oscar now.  I do not like oscar, and I suspect that I never will.  However, winning a conference title with his own players is obvious evidence that he can coach.  No reasonable person can question that. 

However, it's an entertainment business first.  oscar doesn't entertain me, so I doubt I'll spend any money on KSU basketball.  I dropped a fortune on the cult of Huggins and Frank....loved them.  Still do love them, and continue to wish they had never left.  Over the last 6 years or so I found other stuff to do instead of college basketball, so I definitely don't feel like I am "harmed" by oscar being the KSU basketball coach.  If anything, it's really saved me a lot of time and money.

So, I guess you could say that this championship changes a great deal for me, and yet nothing.  Go Cats!

At least as to Thursday and Saturday, the seedings and corresponding game times work relatively well for some moving I have to do that a squawk is helping me with.  That had been a concern, so good job there oscar.

Who goes to the game or tunes in to watch the coach? Also, only desperate programs buy gear for the coach anyway; it gives them hope. We're not that program anymore...it's time to move on.

It's not the coach's job to entertain you, it's the team's job.  They do that by winning lots of games and large candy bowl shaped trophies.

Not one bit.

Once it was clear oscar was going to get his shot to rebuild this program after the Foster mess, I decided that hating him wasn't worth it. K-State basketball has given me a ton of good times in the time since and continues to do so. I thoroughly enjoyed watching us clinch a championship with my youngest son last night as he wore his custom made "Diarra Pickles" t shirt (his idea). I'm looking forward to spending a good part of next week in KC watching the Cats and hopefully another run to break a long drought for K-State basketball.

it doesn't hurt me to change my mind and to allow myself to enjoy things that i didn't always. i think it's really weird that people can't do this for oscar.

Going to the tourney and will attend more games next year than this one, keeping the trend going. Live out of state so can't do season or you bet your ass I would!

Great addition. Echo chambers are needed for validating weak viewpoints.

I went from hating Oscar to tolerating him, but I'll turn on him with the first three-game losing streak or early torn-a-ment exit..

What fan said.
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.

What do you mean by weak view point?  Let me ask you something, do you hate people who do not like your favorite kind of ice cream?  Be honest.

That's an opinion, of course not. BUT, like with flat earthers, I can't stand people who ignore facts or, like with political pundits, people who obfuscate to push an agenda. We're winning with oscar more than we ever had in modern memory, and have watched him develop 3 Top-10 players in K-State history. You don't dislike him because he's bad for a basketball program, you dislike him because of how he looks and how he talks and it rubs your insecurities the wrong way.

I'm happy for ksu cats and the fans of the basketball team but agree with Pete. I've checked out and I don't see myself coming back. I watched around 5 halves of the cats this season and just did not enjoy the play. Some of it is just college basketball in general being stopped every possession for some questionable foul.

Will watch all tourney games tho  :)

I do think the past 4 games have been much more entertaining than early this year.  That was unwatchable

I think I'll watch the tourney games too!  I am not going to duck out of work to watch them, or stay up super late, but that's not because I hate oscar's stupid face and voice and gestures and stuff.  I am just kinda busy, and get tired.
