No gEing I am in general about as reasonably happy with our coaching hire and what he has for the most part done during his nearly 4 seasons as our coach.

I am most happy that we can I think now say we don't need a Snyder to win at K-State, which was for me the fundamental thing he had to prove and has done so

I like getting to 8 wins 3/4 seasons, with a fairly okish excuse for a weird as 2020, which still even featured us coming back and beating OU.

He's also won a bowl game fairly emphatically, that is good too.

If he does beat ku again this week and send us to the Pepper, it's another decent feather in his cap, and if he beats TCU that's a real big feather he can claim, and if we then win the Sugar bowl it'll be quite the season, even with some wtf game, and we can look forward to Will Howard for one more season leading us to many more wins next year. He's got a lot of chances here in the not too distant future to make himself distinguished instead of being a nice but not spectacular coach. I do think the future is fairly bright, and overall we're moving in a good direction, but it may take us a bit yet to get there, we'll see.
Call me small timey but I will be perfectly happy if this is what the average Cat football season looks like for the rest of my life.

I mean we'd make the playoffs more often than not.
I think being in the final 6 at large teams 50% of the time is too high of a standard.

Right, but he said "this season." This season would be playoff bubble most years, and that's without getting the conference auto bid. We're going to win 9-11 games this year, that's not going to happen every year or even every other year.

As many of us like to remind out Squawk friends, football conference championships are between 5 and 10 times more significant than basketball conference championships.  Everyone knows this. Thus my insistence that we erect a statue for every coach who ever wins a conference championship in football.  Those achievements are so important to the entire university and community that they deserve to stand above all others for generations to come.

It's just fantastic to watch WackyTuck play every conceivable stereotype about K-State to try and make a point.

Yes it is very hard to recruit to K-State when the head coach only ventures out of the Vanier Football Complex to visit a recruit less than 5 times over a 7 or 8 year period.  Or when that head coach is such a control freak he's making assistants gameplan on Friday night instead of being out at H.S. games recruiting . . . essentially a head coach who hate hate hates the entire concept of recruiting and who wished it was like the olden days when you could recruit a few guys during the season and then pour gas on the recruiting fire for a month or so after the season was over. 

Or it's very hard to recruit to K-State when the perception of the head coach is that he's a very socially awkward dude who whines a lot.

We are one win away from calling this season a huge success.  Unfortunately, beating KU cannot ensure a hugely successful season by itself, but losing to KU can prevent a hugely successful season by itself.

It’s so hard to recruit to Manhattan!! (WackyTuck)

I think it’s two wins away IMO.

Agreed on 2 wins away. Although EITHER 2 KSU wins or 1 KSU win and 1 TCU win would do it for me.

Well, obviously 2 wins would be amazing and indisputably a very very successful year, but I will be very happy and grateful to both the Mustang and the Meadowlark if we just beat KU to finish this season out.

If Baylor beats Texas, it doesn't really matter if we beat KU. So the whole 1 win vs 2 wins thing depends on what happens Friday.

UT could lose to anyone. They are not very consistent.

IMO UT should have cakewalked to Arlington. Heads above the rest of the league, but that Texas Tech loss, woof.

I’m not sure why Sark threw the ball so much, might be playing the long game with recruits etc. They would be playing for the Dr Pepper if they just ran the ball more, their run game is virtually unstoppable.

Definitely. Given that, there is a not terrible chance that we will have secured a Sugar Bowl berth before our game even kicks off.
