    Did you know...



    ...that Kansas State has a "Tradition of Champions"?

    I did a little research on the subject. Allow me to present to you fine folks my findings:

    - KSU's last championship was a Big 8 Tournament Championship a mere 28 years ago.

    - The last time they went to a Final Four was in 1964, when folks had to decide whether they wanted to tune in on their black and white TV or to listen to that new Chubby Checker record.

    - The last and only time KSU has even played for the NCAA championship, it was 1951, and they wore a fashionable leather belt on their uniforms.

    - Michael Beasley, although being prominently displayed on the DVD cover, was never a champion of anything.

    Nevertheless, here we are in 2009, and KSU is peddling DVDs for $30 claiming they have a "tradition of champions."

    I'm not sure if this is worse, or if KSU's "Decade of Dominance" is. Keep in mind during this "dominance" they won one conference title in ten years.

    I think dude is ripping on K-State - and I find it pretty funny - funny faux pas, not funny "ha-ha"

    They did re-hire Snyder, that we can make fun of.

    Re: Did you know...

    I'm not sure that you are required to come to the Big 12 forum if you don't care about other Big 12 teams, especially making fun of other Big 12 teams.

    It's probably in the terms of service somewhere.

    Too bad the guys on that Final Four team were probably all born the year we last made it there.

    1944 if my quick research is correct.

    Re: Did you know...

    that video has to be seriously short




    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    I love it when a Jayhawk tries too hard. I see no one forcing him to buy anything.

    Re: Did you know...

    I didn't want to buy it. I wanted to make fun of it.

    And it was pretty easy. Always is with the Mildcats, it seems.

    Re: Did you know...

    Oh please. ISU can at least say they won a Big XII Title (yes we're in the right era here) but you don't see us going all spazzy and promoting our "great" history.

    Re: Did you know...

    Remember that we made a century DVD also. I'm just saying that two sweet 16s, 1 elite eight, and a final four back in the 1940s isn't exactly something to brag about.
