    There's no bitterness towards ISU, generally, that I find here toward K-State. And Mangino is respected but loathed by many Wildcat fans for leaving and taking recruits to OU in '98, when State had the epic fail v. aTm that cost K-State a national championship match with Tennessee. A lot of bitterness remains from that time.

    They seem to think ISU just needs a QB to step up in order to be an above average B12 offense but the D will struggle. I think the D will be better than anticipated so hopefully that means good things.

    Very good insight from an outsider's prospective.

    I think most of us are OK with KSU. We just wish we had our super coach to take us to the top for a while. KSU is the most similar to ISU in the conference. We are brothers!

    Obviously K-State fans aren't bitter towards ISU football. I'll let you figure out why.

    And for the butthurt dating back to 1998, yeah, K-State is the only is the only program ever to have a coach leave and take recruits with him. Get over it.

    Agree 100%. That's why I've never understood the hate here.

    We're generally sick of losing to KSU. That's really the only big deal. KSU has had what we want to have, and we don't.

    Um, I wouldn't expect you to understand by the tone of your write, but this 'leaving' happened between the end of the season and the championship game. Mangino and Stoops didn't have the sportsmanship to wait until after the season. There was documented bitterness between them and the players that resulted from their announcement just before the aTm game. It was a matter of timing that got everyone in an uproar. Not that they left for a better place.

    Went to Manhattan for the weekend for what turned out to be Chizik's last game...had a blast. Aggieville was a good time.

    I'd definitely go back to the 'Little Apple'

    ISU has been on that fringe of turning the corner since 1999, just never has like Kansas State. It's not like we don't go to bowl games and that, we just haven't taken the next step from 7-5 or 6-6.

    Yeah I'd say K State is probably my 2nd favorite Big 12 team, mainly because they seem most similar to us. 99% of the people I've encountered in Manhattan have been great, although that's kind of expected when their football team is pushing ours around.

    I want to agree with you, Hopp, but I have a hard time seeing it when I scan the two deep. Too much youth. I feel like this team is a year away.

    Morrissey is a warrior, though. I bet the defense starts to gel, but it won't be until the latter half of the season.

    How good is KSU going to be this year? I haven't heard much about them.

    Snyder always excels with a second year senior quarterback, Jake Waters. A couple holes at offensive tackle and running back. Solve those and K-State could have one of those magical seasons and send Snyder off in high fashion. If not, they'll finish in the middle of the league.
