Did the Stanford game get moved to a neutral site, or are they still just talking about maybe moving it?

they've only talked about it

Boo. Neutral site games are incredibly lame, no matter the geography, location, or who's playing. I would 100% rather play a home and home, no matter how much money's on the table.

You heard it here first, folks. SkinnyBenny would hate it if K-State played in the National Championship.

There is something special about kicking the crap out of a big time football program on your home field. Winning a game at Arrowhead just isn't the same.

Is the assumption that if a game is neutral site then the general public will think it's a bigger game than it is and it will drive up TV ratings?

It’s also worth mentioning that season ticket sales are on the decline at K-State, and it’s harder than ever to get students to show up for home football games. Maybe something new would spark some interest. The Wildcats haven’t played a neutral-site game in the regular season since 2010.

K-State hosted Mississippi State in a highly anticipated game last season and ESPN put it at 11 a.m. A sellout crowd wasn’t in attendance. The odds of a prime time slot are higher in Arlington or Kansas City.

A seven-figure payday (some neutral sites are paying teams as much as $4.5 million right now) for moving the game would also be something to consider.

One more thing: Alabama starts the season at a neutral site every year and that strategy has worked out for Nick Saban.

Of course, the atmosphere would be much better at home and moving the game to a neutral site probably makes it harder for K-State to win. But you asked me to try and make you feel better about the possibility, so there you go.

For what it’s worth, I think K-State is eyeing AT&T Stadium for the Stanford game. That site is likely to offer the most money and national exposure. No deal is in place or even close to being done at this point, but I get the feeling they want to make it happen.

If they move a game to Arrowhead, the better opponent seems like Missouri. They have a home-and-home series coming up. That would work just as well with both games in KC.

oh man, if K-State plays Stanford in Dallas, there are going to be 22,000 people there. It's an awful idea.

I'll be very  :curse: if we play Stanford anywhere but home. Particularly since we gave them a home game.

I know when I turn on a neutral site game and see 79% empty seats, it screams big time game to me and I definitely stick around for it.

Playing Stanford anywhere sucks.  It’s a boring team from a conference that has basically given up on football.

I would assume part of the reason for declining season ticket sales and fewer students was due to Snyder fatigue and the gawd awful boring football.

I think it had more to do with not winning enough games than it did the style of play.

Good point. I guess I was rolling the very average football under “Snyder fatigue “. Bad recruiting, etc.
