tang the egomaniac
« on: February 06, 2024, 09:44:48 AM »
for a guy who professes to be all about the players and the fans, tang sure does seem to make everything about him. let's be real: he doesn't want the students storming the floor because that will turn him into the hoops version of where's waldo. after big wins, tang doesn't want to be the dude in the candy cane sweater, surrounded by chaos. he wants to be santa claus, handing out presents, camera fixated on him while he builds his own personal brand in the most passive aggressive way possible.

one of the bigger home wins in recent k-state memory, and the story afterward is that tang somehow kept all the animals in a cage.

not-storming-the-court status has to be earned, not given.

I mean it is pretty solid Gen X humor. It's not made for me, but I can appreciate the great.

Good for him. All successful coaches have to be a bit theatrical.
Tang's also the first K-State to beat KU in back-to-back years in Manhattan since Jack Hartman in 1982 and 83, so take the stage, my man.

False. Oscar did it in 2014 and 15.

I've erased the Oscar years from my memory. I remember the year DJamer pick and rolled them to death and of course Diarra break away windmill dunk in 2019 but then drawing a blank.

Where'd you get a crazy idea like this from? You weren't spying on the huddle during his egotaniac speech were you? :nono:

I think the real question is…what does Tang even have left to prove? A natty? I mean sure, but he already has one of those pretty recently. It would seem he has eclipsed virtually every milestone there is. I’m not saying I think he’s going to leave for greener pastures after this season but it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if he decides to hang it up and ride off into the sunset. Mission accomplished.

I like the smug nbd aura of the anti court storm.
I once blew clove smoke in a guy's face that cut in front of me in the line to KJ's.

Tang took the fun out of college bball for me. Last year he told us to "expect to win" against KU, so I did. Now, it's just kinda...meh when we do. Damn you, JT.
