KState's Reaction to WIn Against KU Embarrassing

KState salvaged its season in a big statement win over KU in Manhattan, and its fan base deserved to celebrate and savor the win. However, once again KState's inferiority complex with KU is too much for them to overcome, and they have taken a regular season win at home further than anyone would have thought possible.

KState's athletic department is already selling DVDs of Monday's victory. Thats right, not a DVD for a national title, or a Big 12 title, or even a a Big 12 Tournament title. One regular season win. Granted KU was ranked first and is KState's "rival," but a DVD?

Wait, it gets better. Not only can you buy a DVD of the win, but KState is also auctioning the nets from the game. Most teams only cut down and display game nets when it wins a league or punches a ticket to the Final 4. KState? Well, a regular season win to get back on the tournament bubble merits acting like you've won it all. I know the athletic department needs some money after the Ron Prince scandal, but come on.

This is why no one can take KState and its fans seriously. KSU was ranked third in the preseason polls and was the runaway pick to win the Big 12. It was expected that the Wildcats would knock off KU at home. After a few losses, KState has already reverted back to its late 90's form, expecting to lose and going bonkers if it beats KU. If KState wants to know why KU fans act so "arrogant" and "cocky" this is why - because when you beat us, it merits a DVD and auctioning the game net.

KU Falls to KState in Manhattan

In a Sunflower Showdown that was supposed to be a cakewalk for KU, KState played like its season was on the line while the Jayhawks looked like it simply expected to walk all over KState like it did in Allen Fieldhouse. KState was able to salvage its disappointing season and make a strong case for a NCAA tournament berth with a strong win over number one ranked KU.

The final result wasn't pretty: KState beat KU 84-68 in a game that was never in doubt. KU easily played its worst game of the season, while KState turned in a performance that was somewhat shocking given how poorly it had played in Big 12 play. KState got an insane performance from senior Jacob Pullen, who torched the Jayhawks for 38 points.

Before KU fans all jump in the Kansas river, just remember: KU is not healthy and easily played its worst ball of the year. KU is missing Thomas Robinson due to injury, and star freshman Josh Selby barely played due to a stress fracture in his foot. The loss puts KU at 10-2 in the conference, and it will likely see its ridiculous streak of consecutive Big 12 championships end at six. However, this could be a very dangerous team in March, especially when healthy. KU had beaten KState 42 in its last 44 meetings, and it is hard not to avoid a road bump every once in a while. KU will recover, while KState fans can't help but wonder how its team's season would have gone had the Wildcats played every game like Monday night's contest.

Kansas State Routs Kansas

Heading into last night's Sunflower Showdown, most fans expected a tight game between two in-state rivals. Last year's game in Manhattan was close, and both the Wildcats and the Jayhawks were coming off bad loses in conference play. Nothing could have prepared either side for the final result, a 59-7 bloodbath in favor of KSU.

K-State is a good team, a team that will likely finish second or third in the Big 12 North and make a middle-tier bowl. There is no way, however, that the Wildcats are 52 points better than the Jayhawks. None. Coaching is 100% to blame for this loss and the final score. There already is a website dedicated to the firing of Turner Gill, and with each crushing blowout, the notion is becomming more likely.

Losing isn't what this is all about, its the nature of the loses and the direction of the program. KU Football is in a state of emergency and is close to destroying everything Mark Mangino built. Only 31 games ago, KU was winning the Orange Bowl. Now KU isn't just losing games, it is getting blown out. Instead of fixing the problems on the field, Gill is focused on implementing rediculous rules to "build character" in his players. I'm not ready to throw in the towel yet, but KU is on the verge of hiring a new athletic director. Gill better improve quickly, or his days are numbered.
