    2019 Football Question

    Dez was #1 for us, though, right? I know he is 88 in the pros.

    MBB vs TCU (Please guys, win something!)

    I was at the game against Texas in 2002 when Royal Ivey went for a loose ball going out of bounds, at the end of the game, and smacked into a fan who apparently was pregnant, or so the rumors went. So her male companion decided to start fighting with Ivey, TJ Ford, and James Thomas. That was...

    MBB vs TCU (Please guys, win something!)

    I ate some crow not too long ago and admitted that Dizzy has been very good for us, I won't deny that. He has stepped up in a major way. But don't be disappointed next season if/when he isn't a starter because we have a few guys coming in who can start and defend a lot better than him. And that...

    MBB vs TCU (Please guys, win something!)

    I've always hated that. I guess I can understand the whole "big ticket" thing, but just do it for one or two sections, not the entire lower bowl! Oh well...

    MBB vs TCU (Please guys, win something!)

    Does anyone agree that they should maybe consider moving the student section to one of the side sections? Would that maybe help get the students to go to the games more often? I'm still really stuck on how empty the arena was. Also...5,900 fans??? Doesn't seem like there were that many.

    Et tu, @Cro ?

    That handcheck foul on Dziagwa was BS. They call the weakest crap now.

    They need to be prepared in case that goes away.

    MBB vs TCU (Please guys, win something!)

    The crowd sucks. Full stop. That is so embarrassing, regardless of extenuating circumstances/trends.

    I BELIEVE!!!(that i may have a problem lol)OSU BEATS TEXAS!!! $

    Likekele really needs to work on his free throws, especially if he’s going to be mainly a slasher/driver.

    Wudtee enters name in transfer portal

    And, taking your comment to its furthest conclusion, the better (e.g. higher paid) players will be in a better position to pay for their college expenses than the benchers. Is that what I'm reading?

    So, assuming players get paid at some point in the future, you'd only want *certain ones* getting paid because of their measurable results on the field, vs. the guys who sit on the bench? I feel like that's what you're insinuating.

    New guys will save us next year?

    First of all, Texas Tech is really good. Maybe not Final Four good, but they are heavily improved over the last three seasons. Defensively, they're dangerous. Second, WE WILL GET THERE. This is a throwaway season, unfortunately, but such happens when you're trying to establish a mindset and a...

    Is OSU the new KSU

    I appreciate your measured responses to me (unlike some other people). And I can admit that, in the end, my expectations may need to be tempered and more realistic. I will give you that. I guess I'm stuck on 2011. Or maybe stuck on the notion that we could get *this close* to the national...

    Is OSU the new KSU

    Well, I would ask you first how big each team's recruiting budget is. Do you know the answer? I don't. I'll read whatever answer you can find, but honestly I don't care. I've said my piece. I support the football team, regardless of what Gundy does/doesn't do. I want the utmost success for it...

    I know math is hard for you, but you can see my rebuttal.

    Is OSU the new KSU

    Right. Four players for a 12-13 man team, which is roughly 33%. (Basketball) 25 players for a 65-75 man team? Also roughly 33%ish. (Football) So, by proportion, they're about the same.

    Is OSU the new KSU

    Also, I would argue that basketball recruiting is a lot more difficult than football recruiting, strictly based on the fact that you have the exact same number of D1 schools all vying for the best players, and basketball, specifically, has a smaller player pool to choose from. In fact, given...

    Is OSU the new KSU

    And last I checked, none of them are my school. I'm one of the schools that wants to have the record Ohio State, or Alabama, or Clemson, or even OU has had. Why is that asking so much?

    Is OSU the new KSU

    50% of Bedlam would be perfectly fine with me (comparatively speaking, of course). As to your defense inquiry, we've almost *never* had a good secondary. Something to counter the spread offenses I mentioned in my previous post. That's what infuriates me so much. The writing has been on the wall...
