    Big XII Haterade: Kansas State edition

    Iowa State has been a bit of a punching bag on the internet lately, and I'm getting a little sick of it. One of the things I love about Iowa State is the fanbase's realistic expectation, general class, "honor before victory" etc. But I realized something lately. I'M not classy. I'm petty & vindictive. So this post continues a 12 part series, breaking down ISU's opponents in no particular order (well, loosely based on how strongly I dislike their team & how easy it is to make fun of them).

    I AM READY TO UNLEASH THE FURY!!! (liberal use of caps lock & poor grammar to follow)

    Look, I actually have some sympathy for Kansas State. Ag school in the middle of nowhere, endured decades of failure before finding success in the nineties. Good for you K-State! Your example gives hope to ISU fans everywhere. But that doesn’t excuse the general sleaziness that coats Manhattan, Kansas like Ron Prince’s flop sweat. A brief, incomplete list of the many, many reasons to hate Kansas State.

    Their name:

    Great job, K-State! You managed to choose the most widely used nickname in all of sports! Were the Kansas State Bulldogs too obvious? But I guess it worked out for them. The time they saved picking a name was put to good use sucking for most of the 20th century.

    Their mascot:

    In Nebraska’s writeup, I said the Huskers had the worst mascot in the Big XII. Whoops, two posts in and I already have to issue a correction. Willie Wildcat? What are you, and who spawned you? What kind of world do we live in that this man-cat abomination exists? Also, this video? Never not funny.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-A-05wPlQQ4"]YouTube - Hey KSU: 1989 called, it wants its promotional video back![/ame]

    “I’m popular at furry conventions!”

    Their Prince fetish:

    I’m surprised this hasn’t been more widely discussed. Kansas State, your school color is royal purple. Everyone thinks you’re from another planet. This is the second verse to your Alma Mater:

    KSU, we'll carry thy banner high.
    KSU, long, long may thy colors fly.
    Loyal to thee, thy children will swell the cry.
    Hail, hail, hail, Alma Mater.
    “This is what it sounds like when doves cry” (breakdown!)

    Then you top it all off by hiring Ron PRINCE?! Look, the university formerly known as Kansas State, don’t make Prince take out a restraining order on you.



    “Even I think Kansas State’s obsession is unhealthy”

    Their administration:

    What are you doing, KSU athletic department?! After the debacle that was Ron Prince’s time in Manhattan, why would you think hiring your 69 year old former coach is the answer? Snyder helped get you to this lowly state in the first place! I mean, this strategy worked out really well with Art Shell & Joe Gibbs. But you know what they say. Those that don’t know their history are doomed to hire Bill Snyder.

    Their current coach:

    Bill Snyder thinks it’s 1998 right now. He thinks he’s on his first coaching stint with the Wildcats. K-State’s athletic director went to his house, led him gently outside in his bathrobe, gave him his old playbook and plopped him down in the football offices. Basically, Bill Snyder has no idea how to cope with the current state of college football.



    “Better prep for that new Eric Crouch kid they have over at NU today, I’ll bet he goes on to do great things in the NFL. I’ll just hop in my Plymouth Neon & motor over to KSU Stadium. Whoops, better download that new OMC track from Napster before I leave to impress the new recruits!” That is what is running through Bill Snyder’s head RIGHT NOW.

    Yikes. This has already gone on way too long, and I haven’t even talked about Kansas State’s fans, or general crappiness of Manhattan, or their over-reliance on JUCO players…


    Tomorrow: Colorado

    Re: Big XII Haterade: Kansas State edition

    When I was 8 my dad took me to an ISU vs. KSU game at Jack Trice.....Right before kickoff he looked at me and said "do you know why we cheer against these guys?"

    "Because they're playing ISU?" I feably answered.

    "That, and they have the ugliest uniforms in sports." He replied. I still tear up a bit when I tell that story.

    Wow...Did KState gal break your heart or something?

    No need to tear an opponent down like this. KState is not perfect, but neither is ISU.

    Running series, man.

    I totally agree. It is petty. But it's also part of what I love about sports. It's great that Iowa State's fanbase ihas respect for the opponent, and stays away from mean-spirited trash talk for the most part. But we are getting OWNED in preseason reviews right now, and I wanted to level the playing field with some good-natured joking.

    Quick side story. Before a Nebraska game a few years ago, a friend made it his mission to make all his trash talk complete non-sequiters. The only thing that came out of his mouth all day were things like "Nebraska fans have ill-fitting shoes!" and "The Huskers have incomplete knowledge of 19th century maritime law!" Hilarious.

    Re: Big XII Haterade: Kansas State edition

    I have to say of the various schools I've been to, K-State was one of my favorites to visit and felt the closest to home (I may also be biased because my high school blatently ripped off the Power Cat logo)

    However, I do understand it's a series going on here, and the Nebraska one earlier was freak'n hilarious


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    Re: Big XII Haterade: Kansas State edition

    We headed down to K-State to watch TD break 2000 for the second consecutive year. As we popped the caps off our bottles of beer, it was quickly taken from us from security. In order to drink, you have to pour your beverage into a plastic cup!!(This was back in the day when you could still haul a keg into the parking lot at ISU.)

    During the game, TD got flagged for doing the Heisman pose, KSU faked punt in the 4th quarter despite a 2-3 touchdown lead, and the weather was so crappy, 3/4 of the fanbase left early, despite the fact that they were headed to a major bowl. (Sugar or Cotton, can't remember)

    On the flipside, I did get to meet the parents and grandparents of the legendary Troy Davis.

    Re: Big XII Haterade: Kansas State edition

    In 2002 KU was getting beat 62-0 in Lawrence and at the end of the game KU was moving the ball against K-State's 2nd team. So K-State put their starters back in to preserve the shutout. Wow, hard to believe that was only 7 years ago. Those games were painful to watch.

    This is a fun series. Can't wait for you to rip on the Jayhawks. This is part of what makes college sports so fun.

    Nice job...you posted the power towel video. It is a necessity when referencing K-State, it also never gets old.

    Hey we didn't just rip that off, we pay them $1.50/year for that!
