Re: I knew this was going to happen.

yes, you are misstating the situation. these are your words. and that is absolute poppycock. My point (belief) is that our athletic department certainly didn’t feel the pain as much as the average fan that buy tickets. Let’s see. People trying to feed their families. KState athletics feeding the be...

Re: I knew this was going to happen.

i don't buy for a minute that the average fan suffered more during this pandemic than the athletic department which lost tens of millions in ticket sales. i believe yours is a complete misstatement of the financial situation here and elsewhere. the average fan on the farm, in finance, retired, or e...

Re: I knew this was going to happen.

Personally, I’ve felt the staff pay cuts were a slap in the face of the normal fan. 13% cut for BW and CK? Get real! My company asked its most senior executives to take cuts over 40+%. And they make a fraction of CK. I have little sympathy for KState’s financial situation. They didn’t suffer like t...

Re: KSU v WV

In Weber’s post-game presser, he was asked about Pack and the effect of his absence on the team’s performance. He explicitly said that, other than Pack, we have no ball handlers. So, the obvious question seems to me to be - Is Weber’s primary recruiting focus another PG? And is there anyone on the t...

Re: Dean Wade tidbits

He gets his shot off so quickly with a release point that has to be over 9’. He’s an impressive young man and bball player.

Re: I knew this was going to happen.

i believe your comments very well may be wrong. this group will contend for the b12 championship down the road. and the last pundit i listened to, robbie hummel, was over-the-top complimentary of how much this squad has improved as they took down oklahoma, the #7 team in the country. so, i don't kn...

Re: I knew this was going to happen.

I believe that Weber will be retained. He’s too close to the power players and he’ll get the Covid pass. That said, the two wins and better performances of late do not erase the disastrous last two years. Whether it’s important or not, KState has been the laughingstock of many a pundit this season, ...

Re: McGuirl, 1 more year?

It feels that more of the same is likely in order.

Not sure why Weber even mentions it at this juncture. He certainly has never been properly schooled in the art of addressing media questions.
