I'm starting to get the impression that the women's season is in much more peril than the men's season. They don't have the pressure to finish that the men do. I think Duke started something that we'll see more of very soon, especially as students start to return to these campuses.

i'm pulling this description from KSO because it's too good. lady cats lost last night at WVU which was kind of expected but read how they lost...

Quote
Absolutely embarrassing display by the K-State women and the 'coaching' of Jeff Mittie at West Virginia!!! Took a 12 point lead at 56-44 with 4:36 left in the game. Still at 56-44 with 3:03 left. K-State proceeds to get off two shots (one blocked) for the remainder of the game and commit, get this, 7 turnovers, virtually all trying to get the ball in under the WVU basket against their press. Mittie then gets 2 technicals and kicked out of the game with 7 seconds left. West Virginia goes on a 21-0 run for the last 3:03 of the game to come from 12 down and win 65-56. Most epic collapse of total ineptitude I think I have ever witnessed in basketball even at the Junior High level!! Mittie, now in his 7th season with an All-American 6'-6" center is now 0-3 in Big 12 play and has a team and program in total disarray just like the men! Gene needs to get better options for both programs than these two John Currie hires!!!

They had 11 possessions in the last 3 and a half minutes of the game. 10 of those possessions were turnovers and the other resulted in a blocked shot.

In the same way that oscar has never been able to recruit a pure shooter, Mittie has been an absolute disaster at recruiting point guards.

I love the cats, I hate the style of play we employ, it's so ugly.

#MittieOut

We just lost to OU who had 6 players, not 6 scholarship players and 3 walk ons, 6 players.

Now Ayoka Lee was victim to the worst no call I've ever seen on a basketball court, no hyperbole, but they should have never been in that position. A series of frankly very stupid decisions led to that. If there's 2 minutes left in a game and you're down 4 with 3 fouls to give, you don't just start giving them with 10 seconds on the shot clock.

It's definitely Covid and not at all that Mittie has shown stunning incompetence despite having fairly talented rosters (albeit rosters without point guards).

He is the Mark Fox/Andy Kennedy of Big 12 women's ball - average a 19-13 record every year, alternate between NIT/NCAA bids and continue to earn a paycheck because he (and his predecessor) collectively sucked the life-force out of the program.

But, if Mean Gene doesn't fire oscar, how can you fire Mittie when their respective seasons are basically the same (though I'd argue Mittie has more talent and was picked to finish in the top half of the league).

we k-staters don’t fire people, it’s not in our culture
promote, extend, excuse, but definitely not fire

I truly don't know how anyone could have watched that game and didn't come away thinking that he isn't over his head. I would understand losing to 6 players from flood aggie, but that OU team was awful. That was a worse loss than the men on Saturday.

Bruh.

Lost a 10 point lead with 3 minutes left in the game. Had a 5 point lead and the ball under a minute, took a shot with 16 seconds left on the shot clock, got blocked.

Didn't score the last 3:24 of regulation. Got outscored 22-4 the last 8 minutes of the game, 3 minutes of regulation and overtime.  :facepalm:

Watching the men get blown out ever game and the women piss every game away late is a fantastic fan experience. I think what the women are doing is more brutal because they constantly give hope, they can't keep finding ways to blow games. The men are out of games but the first media timeout, so it's meh at this point.

In a fitting way to end the year, Mittie again defies 99 percent win probability and can't lead his team to holding on despite a 7 point lead with less than a minute to play against No. 2 seed WVU. Once again, the team couldn't execute an inbounds play in the final minute and had three turnovers.

The peggy po's will say a bad no-call (and it was a bad-no call) with 5 seconds left cost us the game. But, that ignores that we put ourselves in that position and that we have a head coach who has been unable to get his team to value the ball and consistently execute an inbounds play/break the press all season.

That was an absolutely brutal finish, inexcusable. This was not a well coached team, lots of ridiculous mistakes late, which like you said, is a hallmark of this team, even in the few games they won.

Bueckers vs. Clark has been very disappointing.
