the fight for fifteen
« on: February 05, 2021, 10:12:13 PM »
six games to glory.  the easy part is done, each game just gets harder to lose from here on out.  history awaits.



oscar is trying to match EC Curtis with the worst losing streak in K-State history. In 1922 Curtis' Wildcats lost 9 straight, won a game, then lost 5 straight to end the season before starting the 1923 season with another 9 game losing streak. The media guide says 15, but the count is 14 by the schedules.

Currently on a 4-game fOOD losing streak, with the opportunity to tie and break that record over the next 4 days.

It’s all in the hands of the schedule makers now. Will they do us any favors?

That’s wild that as bad as it felt KSU hoops was during Asbury/Wooly, we’d never lost 5 straight at bramlage until oscar did it last year, with him now trying to put that record even further out there this year.

Also, K-State and Iowa State are currently engaged in an epic #strivefor9th





Yep, someone can't count. I'm sad that we've reached a point where I discovered that media guide error.

It’ll be cleanest to get to at least 15 now and have that error corrected as the new kings are crowned, while also precluding any asterisk as far as the streak stretching across seasons and arguably requiring 2 different teams to accomplish it.

The opportunity to set the new mark at 6 exists tonight, and it's not one to be taken lightly.

just tuning in now - a little worrisome that kstate has managed to score so many points already.

if kstate scores 70+ in a game does that get recorded as a win under the alternative minimum points rule?  anyone know how that works?

Does the Alternative Minimum Points Rule come with statistical guidelines and qualifications on ppg during the season?

that missed dunk could have been a disaster, but all's well that ends well.  the five game bramlage streak is shattered, we're looking at a new all-time bramlage losing streak record holder.


underlying it all, we notch another loss.  eleven down, four to go.  we persist.

I hope COVID is solved in time for this year's awards banquet to be as grand as this historic season deserves.

Checked KenPom, I think 200 adjO qualifies this as a W, but will it go up?

i don't believe you can claim an amp win when the final margin is under 10.
