*acknowledging a lot of it's been on janky espn+

It’s a historical run that much more fun to research than watch. I’ve spent probably 1 hour or so actually watching Cat hoops this season.
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.

that'd really be something if he was able to take down cochrane-rocks.  i don't think anyone had that on their list, preseason.

Chili Cochrane is an incredible sports name, it's too bad he ended up being historically shitty.

Incidentally, our guy EC Curtis managed the only season without a home conference win in 1923, another dubious distinction oscar could join.

Worst single seasons, overall and conference.


Worst back to back seasons.

There could be a whole lot of banners to print up at year-end.  Not unlike it taking two men to achieve some of those consecutive seasons of futility, it could be a job that hemmy and befr will need to pool resources for.

Curtiss put up a .125 in 22-23.  E.C. is the standard-bearer in futility, and oscar is coming for that ass.

How can he match this overall?

I did notice Curtiss' 2-14 season was a conference (MVC) only slate, so oscar does have a great opportunity to eclipse that as well as the absolute destruction of the shared conference futility crown of 1-9 (.100) held jointly by KSU giants Chili Cochrane and Cliff Rock in 42-43 and 43-44 respectively.

oscar's likely 1-16 (.059) conference record -- assuming no makeup games -- would be a standard unlikely ever to be matched.

He (EC) was a handsome fellow though.

Lower than Wooly
Lower than Asbury

I think the original post was in response to a particular loss. In another sense, going ten Asbury/Wooly years without making the tourament could be considered the "lowest point".

I agree. The macro was much worse back then. This team actually reminds me of wooly's later teams. You can see there is talent on the team with the individual players but there's very little hope that they will see their potential with the current staff. That 2006-07 team had enough talent to be more than a bit team but Huggins only had the one year with them. The 2005, '06, and '07 teams were all good enough to make the tournament, none did because that staff hampered their growth.

Yep, these seasons are awful and the record compared to history speaks for itself.

However, the facilities are pretty good and any reasonable coach can see a program 2 years removed from a league title and overall with 9 NCAAs, 2 Elite 8s and 2 league titles in the last 15 years.

I'm just not sure the money to fire/hire a good replacement is going to be there this year at this point.

That’s a good comparison, a competent coach could come in and have a good foundation of guys with pack, Bradford and Miguel to build around

This season may narrowly avoid being the lowest point in K-State basketball, but I can guarantee that being #7 and losing to this K-State team tonight absolutely is the lowest point in OU basketball history. We're their Fort Hays State.

Yeah, if Fort Hays State had beaten them every year for like nine years in a row.

i think it's great that we've established that oscar is good enough of a coach for us.  because now that we have now won 3 B12 games this season (out of 16 chances), who says we won't win more?

Last night was fun, well really just the last 4 minutes, because we were down 7 and missed 6 straight 3s before that, but my eyes are still on the prize. The program is still a mess right now, happy the players are still playing hard tho.

What winless Iowa State did last night is probably more impressive than what we did, but really who cares?
