Re: Perhaps something will happen to ku...

The NCAA needs to allow schools to pay players. I respectfully disagree. If a kid out of high school wants to get paid for playing basketball, he should go to the NBA G League. No doubt, there is a lot of cheating going on out there, but that is different than the NCAA saying they will allow school...

Re: wowzer, oSu game on espn plus ...

It's hard to say. With ESPN+, I think you're guaranteed access nationwide, with some other options, there are (or used to be) regional broadcasts where you couldn't see the game out of Big 12 territory. I think we'll draw pretty well. Traditionally, that has been an issue with me here in St. Louis....

Re: check all the plus signs on mbb schedule ...

Interesting. Like I said on the football board... this works out nicely for someone like me who dumped cable but am paying the $5/month for ESPN+.

I just hope that ESPN doesn't act like a drug dealer and charge next to nothing until we are hooked. ;-)

Re: After ESPN+ purchase, now what?

Didn't watch the KCTV news last night but there was a story about declining NFL attendance. I gave up pro sports years ago. It sure seems like attendance at KSU home games has decreased lately although I would expect it to be better if we beat Okie Lite. Maybe advertisers aren't as aggressive looki...

Re: wowzer, oSu game on espn plus ...

C'mon guys. Haven't you figured this out? It's simple. Beat an $EC team on prime time ESPN, and pay the price. I kid, I kid. But the timing does seem ironic. So here are the competing games we lost out to: ACC game Minn vs Purdue on ESPN at 3:30 ET (Not exactly a big TV market game) ACC game Clemso...

Re: wowzer, oSu game on espn plus ...

ESPN won't care even if every OSU/KSU fan unscubscribed for your boycott. I would take the extra exposure, but this won't really matter at all for recruiting or anything else. I feels like a little bit of disrespect to both us and OSU, but otherwise, streaming TV is the future . As a retired TV Net...

Re: Defensive thoughts

I had read that Snyder and crew ran the team hard all the way up to game day so that they were still beat when playing. That also is attributed to the numerous injuries that happened during play as well. Tyler Lockett mentioned that when his 40 time was quicker than expected at the NFL combine. Wha...

Re: True Freshmen

88 players saw the field against Bowling Green. I think the max number on the team is 105. Not many that haven’t played. I’m sure some were injured. I had read that 11 true freshmen got into that game so yes, the majority of them have gotten on the field already. I don't remember seeing Herron, Gar...

Re: True Freshmen

CK said a week or so ago that it was highly unlikely that Dineen would red shirt Yeah, I think I remember hearing that, too. I like the four-game rule. Most freshmen, if they are good enough to play can still get in games without losing eligibility. And if they good enough to play more than four ga...
