    K-State gameday weather = SUCK!

    This forecast keeps getting more crappy. Right now weather.com is saying high of 39, rain/freezing rain, 70% chance precip. Forecast


    Concerns:

    1) How will this affect the game? More likely keeping things on the ground, more turnovers, lower scoring?

    2) How will this affect tailgating? Talk about suck-*** weather for a good tailgate. It may be hard to light charcoal. A good day to break out the waterproof hunting boots, insulated coveralls, and hide that flask of bourbon for the game.

    3) Fan travel. From Ames, Manhattan isn't a horrible drive and most of the precip looks to be south of Kansas. I, however, plan to drive 8 1/2 hours from Colorado on Friday afternoon/evening.

    I hope you guys don't see another post on Friday morning with me selling 4 e-tickets.

    Against Baylor or someone similar I would have loved this forcast, but I am not sure if they don't benefit more from crappy weather.

    A Sunday trip to Manhattan would have been a disappointing one anyway since the game will be played on Saturday.

    The less they have Klein throwing it: Better for them
    The more we have to run it: Better for them

    Ultimately weather will probably keep the game close but favors their style of play more.

    I agree with this. The current forecast doesn't do us any favors.

    Sounds like Cyclone weather to me.
