I've been trying the easy way first.  And I don't have any theories I'm committed to yet, but I'm super curious about lots of the math.

At least in their talking points, they def pitch it as it being a big deal just being college football.

Quote
AT&T Stadium has announced that Allstate will be the new title sponsor of the season-opening college football game that is played annually at AT&T Stadium.

The Allstate Kickoff Classic will debut with the Sept. 4, 2021 matchup featuring Kansas State versus Stanford University. 

"We're very excited to welcome a terrific new partner in Allstate as the premier sponsor of this iconic game that will kick off the 2021 college football season," Stephen Jones, Chief Operating Officer of the Dallas Cowboys, said. "Here in Texas and across the country, the return of college football each year is a very special time. Because of Allstate's enthusiastic support and partnership, the Allstate Kickoff Classic will continue to be a yearly must-see event.  And given all that has happened in 2020, there can be no question that in 2021 this game will have special significance as together we bring back the great fans, pageantry, history and traditions of college football as we've always known it."

Under the terms of the sponsorship, Allstate will present the matchups at AT&T Stadium for the next four years.

According to AT&T Stadium officials, the partnership between Allstate and the stadium is an expansion of their long-term support for college football, which involves team partnerships with 94 universities including both matchup teams, Kansas State and Stanford.

"Presenting the Allstate Kickoff Classic underscores our commitment to unite college football fans through iconic moments and places," Dan Keats, Allstate's director of consumer marketing sponsorships, said. "This Allstate Kickoff Classic sponsorship exemplifies how our brand, for more than 16 years, supports college football and its great fans. We are excited to join AT&T Stadium in debuting this annual game and venue as a milestone for the start of the 2021 college football season."

It's pretty rough ridin' ridiculous, tbh. I'm more concerned with that stretch of OSU, OU, and ISU, and that game against Nevada isn't a joke either. This is undoubtedly the hardest K-State football schedule since any of us have been paying attention.

It's the best schedule I've ever seen for us. Only FBS schools and a P5.

First time since 2005. But if we're talking about excitement and competition is there a real difference between Buffalo and Stephen F. Austin?

The left hand side of that schedule is ridic, if they make it out of that above .500 they'll murder the right hand side.

Yeah, we probably would have lost to them last year. They had one of the best RB's in the nation.

The only thing that's going to keep K-State from being murdered by the left side of that schedule is a healthy 26 year old Skylar Thompson.

He's going to be a sensation.
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.

I'd like to see the Big 12 severely back load its schedule. 

Pit all the top teams against each other as late as possible. Preseason Top 4 must be playing each other in the final two weeks of the season. Have the good teams play the crap teams early in the season. Figure the rest out from there.

And move the damn UT v OU game to Jerry World.

We don’t really beat them for recruits but Nebraska and Iowa have been who we tussle with the most for the recruits we want.

Also Minnesota, and I get the feeling that Illinois will become more prominent in Kansas City.

What in the world? There isn't a single person associated with this game who would want this.

We should be scheduling as many of these fucks as possible, especially the ones we are likely to beat on the field.

For the most part, recruits don't care about this
