Talk about accepting mediocrity.NMcat wrote: ↑January 11th, 2019, 12:41 pmIt's going to be a difficult transition year at K-State. Picked 9th in the Big 12 conference coming in, Barnes off to the NFL, no apparent back-up for Thompson when he gets hurt or is performing poorly. We don't really have a punt and kickoff returner and our special teams weren't very special last season.
We open with a good FCS team and then a really bad Bowling Green team. I doubt we'll be favored in any of the rest of our games.
The new coach has his work cut out for him. Maybe he'll put together another Miracle in Manhattan, but we fans are going to have to be very patient. (and, of course we're not)
Nearly all of a defense that finished second in Big 12 scoring this year is back.
Lose one significant player off the offensive line.
Injured first string tight end back.
Zuber, Knowles and Rison as potential first string recievers. (Rison started at Michigan State as a true freshman.)
Already signed a transfer running back who rushed for over 1000 years as a soph before being injured last year.
Experienced quarterback who showed some real growth in the last few games.
Good place kicker and punter coming back.
Zuber actually is a pretty decent returner and I expect we have other guys who can also do that job.
All the bs about not accepting the mediocrity from Snyder but now some can't see us performing well next year. Worry about the year after when we are replacing a lot of next years seniors. If we have a bad year next year, it is not a good sign.
