Weber has been trying his best to schedule regional games, particularly with Wichita and Missouri. I think this is the best he could get from the Shox. They declined a home & home set a couple of years ago when Brown, Stokes, and Wade were juniors.Why would KSU agree to play two road games, one home game, and a neutral? That's just weird.
Is it good for the game? I don’t think games between Kansas State and Wichita State matter nationally. I sure don’t give a ****. I’m sure you wouldn’t care if we started playing UNI again.
Now it would be much different. I don't think its even comparable to where they were the McD years. It would be really good match up now that they are a Big East team. In the Orr years, the Creighton games were great, Cyclone fans packed the Civic in Omaha, same with Devaney in Lincoln. They were great games for fans that wanted to travel. I wouldn't love a series with the Huskers but a Creighton series would be great now that they have a program on par with ours.We played Nebraska for a long time. It was never a hit.
We played Creighton back to back in the McD years. It wasn't a hit.
The Sante Fe Trail (1800's) and that was only to get from New Mexico to Missouri. Get through Kansas as fast as possible.This is the best thing that has happened in Kansas since....................................
The teams you listed, I wouldn't consider power but if I was a fan I'd hope for it I guess.Wichita is considered a power program like Houston, UCONN, Memphis - at least to their fans. They've been to the Final 4 recently. Regional TV will be very interested in this matchup, like Texas v. Houston or Tennessee v. Memphis in those parts. It will create a stir ...
I would always catch ISU v. Iowa and ISU v. UNI if on TV. So, your retort doesn't fit for me. But I love rivalry games which this clearly will be. Shox fans and their coach are pretty outspoken.
