    Bye week before OSU?

    Sorry if this has already been discussed, but I just noticed there is another bye week heading into Okie St. I thought teams only received one per season.

    Is this good or bad?


    There was one?

    Probably more irrelevant than anything.

    This was originally the karate game, but that was moved to the end of the season.

    Re: Bye week before OSU?

    May be good in this case. Gives key players time get healthy (KO and Knott). Also may help Barnett as he will still be expanding his palybook at that point. Anything to help this one look respectable is OK with me.

    I'd love to see a karate game. I'd pay double for that.

    Karate Game. I like. Hate the Farmageddon title. 20 years from now, ESPN announcers can do some history on why the game is traditionally known as the Karate Game. "This game is known as the Karate game because of crappy auto-correct technology used back in the 2010s decade. It turns out kstate auto corrects to karate." Easy to make a trophy out of this game too.

    Re: Bye week before OSU?

    Hopefully it will give our O line a chance to recover a bit. Personally, I don't think it will make much difference either way. It didn't seem to help the team at all after the first 3 games.

    I'd take that extra week and shoot 100 mph tennis balls at our recievers, hopefully teaching them how to catch something. Actually, maybe start with a soft toss beach ball, so they could feel what it's like to actually catch something.

    I wish Pollard wouldn't take our karate away from us.

    With our new defensive coordinator Jackie Chan, I like our chances.

    Actually this was suppose to be the Oklahoma game on the road. They moved both K-state and Oklahoma games which left the bye week November 12th.

    Do you think we can get Ralph Macchio as a special guest. Surely he doesn't have much else going on.
