Feels good to know that the #1 College Town OAT is home to the three most impressive feats in sports history:
--The Streak
--The Draft Streak
--Titletown

Oh yeah, we clinched that a while back.  Thought maybe they expanded on the shame of that day.

Lol, rough ridin' loser wednesday squawks.

Game forecast: Cats get off to bad start, fight back to take lead, go into deep swoon at 8-9 minute mark get down by about 10, make a final push at about 3 minutes, lose by 5 or less.
Nailed it, dumbass.

The team somehow avoided the script from the last 2 months that produced the worst season since Gardner built the progam in 1947, dumb eff. Get the so-so recruits in and fire this incompetent loser.

How long will it be before there’ll be nobody on earth who was alive when The Streak began?

For purposes of this thread, ignore any prospect of the world dying in the next few years from coronavirus flu.

If this craptastic team can preserve #TheStreak, it's a really stupid accomplishment. What's KU's relative streak?

The squawks relatively recently put together a jarring streak of 2 consecutive seasons with losing records at home from 1961-1963, just a few years after the 58-59 edition limped to .500 at home.

Kansas State's The Streak is one of the most untouchable records in sports.

christ, imagine being a fan of a team with such recent awful results. like, your parents were probably old enough to have witnessed that first hand. not for me.

Given THAT history, it's especially crazy that they haven't torn down their piss barn and replaced it with a fancy modern octagon.

I was in London last year and the black cab driver guy asked me about the streak when I told him where I was from. He said, “Gavin, how big of a deal is the streak?” And I said “Well, for starters, it’s as big as it is long. Which is extremely.”

Can confirm. Saw the interaction myself on Pornhub.

Now that we don't have to be so stressed about fundraising at FattyFests, maybe we should start incorporating a celebration of The Streak.  Will there be fire code issues at Mae's if we're bringing in a cake with 74 (and counting) candles?

In answer to fire code violations at Maes I think the answer is yes. And that’s before considering the cake and candle factor

Some of us olds remember the roughly 300,000 lit cigarettes in there every night before the smoking bans.

on reflection, i don't think that this team ever really had it in them to break the streak.  they were a fraud.
we understand it better now that the american century is over and some of us sound more and more like serbs.

It's more of a reflection on how powerful The Streak is than on how shitty this year's team was.  Hope we see you at the celebration this September-ish.

We can swing it.  $100 gets us a decade+ of candles.
