    Hey, Keitz — ever think that maybe KMBC focused on Kansas and Missouri because that newscast was sandwiched between a nationally televised KU game and a nationally televised Mizzou game?

    If I wanted to hear a whiner, I’d listen to my sick dog.

    KK may be intentionally inflammatory, but he’s right on this issue. Channel 9 had Kornacky interviewing a goddam UK kicker for chrissake. What Ch. 9 did was like doing a Lawrence-Columbia Rotary picnic dual remote when the Hyatt Skywalk disaster is happening in KC. News stations are supposed to be covering the news. UK and MU getting their hats handed to them was not the news of that Saturday. That shit happens nearly every week.

    As for Kerkhoff’s dissing of KState in his weekly rankings, it’s relevant to point out that his rankings are not based on record or odds for where they’ll end up. They are HIS rankings — who HE thinks is the better team. If UK or MU were in KState’s position this week, he would have ranked them 4th (or higher) and left everybody else tied for 5th. That’s just the way it is at that paper.

    It’s also amusing to observe that the Star has to rely on pissing off KState fans in order to get them to read their paper’s coverage of their team. You ever read Kellis Robinette’s coverage? NOBODY responds. Robinette is Fredo to KState fans.

    Greg, I agree 100% about your statement that KK gives the impression of K-State fans being “insecure, whiney and paranoid.”

    (As does at least one blogger on this column.)

    How hard is it to understand, Purple People?! Win ONE fu**ing game against OU, KU, MU or Nebraska, THEN more respect will be given. Win 2 of those games and your team will be playing at Arrowhead and you all shouldn’t give a Mike Shanahan’s ass what anybody thinks.

    Emmett, Do you make more sense when you call in to radio shows as you do when you try to write? Your unreadable ramblings are nearly as illiterate as trying to read Kellis write about K-State in the Star.

    As for KK’s rant, I don’t necessarily agree with Kerchoff’s rankings…at this point, there are 3 teams at the top, 2 teams on the bottom, and 7 others that would all be less than a 3 pt spread against each other on a nuetral field.

    The Ch. 9 broadcasat however, was a joke. You have 2 huge stories of the Big 12 north, with IA State winning in Lincoln for the first time since the Carter Administration, and K-State winning handily to lead the North by 2 games. You instead choose to spend several minutes interviewing a kicker who’s team just got drilled by 30 points.

    Mangino and the phrase “lighten up” in the same sentence? Sort of like a Walmart in Independence
    saying “We don’t sell Drano and acetone”.

    KU is going to have Mangino wear a green jacket so they can start beaming advertising on his back during TV broadcasts. New slogan for the Sunflower State-
    “Kansas- Bigger than our Coach”

    Inexpensive Halloween costume for KK-tie a spud to your pud and go out as a dicktater. He and the Mrs. can play bobbing for tater tots.

    Medical marijuana can be obtained in Colorado for malaise. Explains KSU’s win over the Buffs.

    The most entertaining part of this season, aside from watching UK, MU, and NU fans backpedal like bitches after throwing their chests out all year long is seeing them keep doing it after last week’s collective debacles. They still believe their respective teams have better odds than KState does to win the North.

    This is fun for us to watch.

    Get a clue, Brian. Journalism is dead. Channel 9 covered KU and MU because their games were back to back on ABC. Plus, the percentage of the audience interested in KState pales in comparison to MU and KU. It’s promotion. It’s got nothing to do with the day’s big stories. Stop whining.

    And for the KSU fans who can’t get over the fact that channel 9 showed KU & MU stories instead of KSU & Nebraska. Do you really think they should focus on Nebraska over KU & MU? Really?

    According to the urban dictionary – White guilt is a belief among white liberals that being white is, in and of itself, a great transgression against the rest of the world for which one must spend their life making atonement. It is often exemplified by embracing the cultures and philosophies of various other ethnic groups while neglecting one’s own roots.

    I find it DAMN hilarious that some of you get so bent over KK or just about anybody else on the radio just because they have an opinion that differs from yours. Like Greg, to me KK is nothing more than listening to a guy making an ass out of himself at times and the funniest part of that is that KK himself doesn’t even realize it. Certainly no reason to hate the guy.

  48. Anonymous says:

    I think I’ve made it clear. I HATE trivia contests.

    KK…….I strongly dislike people that are fake. So to hear KK blast Brett after his golf course rant. Then have him on the show and kiss up to him. Then the next day when he is off the show…blast him again. Well gee is that not the perfect example of every office suck up two face person we have encounter in our lives? Keitzman and his arrogance, condescending know it all attitude. He just represents everything that most people don’t find admirable.

    I am farrrrrrrrrrrrrr from a being a perfect person. But one thing I am is pretty straight up. So when I DON’T see that quality in someone else then I tend to dislike their behavior.

    I quite frankly don’t listen to KK so I have no idea if we differ in opinions.

    If Channel 9’s mission was to cover the Big 12 North, KK would have a point. But I don’t think they see it as their job to cover the biggest stories in the Big 12 North, it’s to cover the biggest stories in the KC Metro. Saturday, that was KU taking on Oklahoma and Mizzou taking on Texas in games that were, incidentally, broadcast on Channel 9.

    Kent, Manhattan is almost the exact same distance from KC that Columbia is, it’s actually almost 5 miles closer. Therefore, KState taking control of the Big 12 North race WAS a KC Metro story – that is if you are going to claim MU-Texas in Columbia is a Metro story.

    Well maybe channel 9 wanted to cover what will be the Big 12 Champion not some 3rd rate team from the north which will get killed by 40 or more in the championship game.Its not that hard too figure out.KK is still a know it all wanna be ESPN or FOX sports guy.610 still kills the mediocre 810 trivia,burgers,grampa’s Pete and Jack old and tired R.I.P. 810

    What I find funny is all the hate for one guy. KK is the king of sports talk in this town…deal with it. I’m sure there were a lot of guys in New York who hated Mike and the Mad Dog or even Howard Stern when they became No.1 and would love nothing more for them to fail.

    What I find interesting is that people think KK never received compitition. KK has beat all compitition that has come his way.

    KK beat Fortune.
    KK beat Fortune with Petro.
    KK beat Fortune with Rose.
    KK beat Fortune with Petro…again.
    KK beat Petro.
    KK beat Whitlock and Maas.
    KK beat Whitlock.
    KK beat Whitlock and Neal Jones.
    KK beat Neil Jones.
    KK beat Neil and Marty.
    KK beat Neil….again!
    KK is beating Chris and Cowboy.
    KK and 810 beat 1340.
    KK and 810 beat 1250.

    KK is 14-0.

    He’s the king of Sports talk….deal with it…

    wrong. For whatever problems all you have with
    kietzman he’s an entertainer. Each of you is able to qoute his comments so obviusly you are
    listening to his show..which is what the guy
    wants…which is how his station makes money…
    which is why he makes controversial comments so
    you will get an emotion about what he says
    about sports.
    Kietman is the top sports talk personality in
    kc. It’s like being the #1 restaurant in peculiar. He’s had no competition from an inept
    and poorly managed entercom station (610) which
    doesnt know shit about sports talk or running
    a radio station period.
    Besides that, the guy gets bj’s in cars while
    married, get arrested for doing it…then marries
    the girl who gave him the bj. You’ve got to feel
    sorry for the guy having to go thru all that
    for a bj. Must have been one heck of bj!

    John, I also understand that Kevin beats himself. Just because you are the top guy doesn’t mean you are a good guy. Remember Nixon won TWO presidential elections.

  60. Anonymous says:

    Rick, what does Richard Nixon have to do with anything? What does a President of the United States have to do with a local sports talk radio host? Do you also compare the Pope and Howard Stern?

    And as for the myth that KK got a BJ in Prairie Village. I did a little research and found out that it’s not true. At least according to a Pitch article on 1/29/2004.

    “From the moment he took the call from Wolverine Willie, Jason Whitlock’s substantial finger should have been poised to hang up. Only a couple of weeks earlier, Willie, a frequent caller to sports-talk radio shows, had been banned from Jim Rome’s Jungle for one of his signature parody songs. Rome and many of his followers thought the tune was anti-Semetic, and the host gave Willie the boot.

    Even if Whitlock hadn’t known Willie’s reputation, the Kansas City Star columnist should have been wary when the frequent caller to his afternoon radio show, The Doghouse, began singing in a redneck drawl to the tune of Johnny Cash’s “I Walk the Line.”

    “I keep my zipper wide open all the time,” Willie sang. “Arrested for performing an indecent crime.”

    Another host might have cut off Willie at that moment. For the local horde that finds Kansas City sports-talk radio so absorbing, there was no question who was being attacked in Willie’s joke.

    The target was Kevin Kietzman, Whitlock’s former colleague and boss at WHB 810. And Willie’s song was just the latest version of an urban legend that Whitlock himself had helped perpetuate — that late one night, Prairie Village police stopped Kietzman while he was driving home from an 810 function and caught him, literally, with his pants down.

    In the version spread by Whitlock and his listeners, Kietzman, caught in a compromising position with a young coworker, barged out of his car with his pants around his ankles and berated police, asking them repeatedly whether they knew who he was.

    “My family’s broken and in a state of disgrace, ’cause I left a stain on some poor girl’s face,” Willie crooned.

    Whitlock roared with laughter.

    Problem is, the story’s not true.

    On the night of January 10, 2002, Prairie Village police did indeed pull Kietzman over. But that’s about all that the song — and the other stories — have right.

    “He was not in any act,” says Lt. Wes Jordan of the Prairie Village Police Department. “He wasn’t naked. His pants weren’t around his ankles. He was given a field sobriety test to be sure he was OK, and he was.”

    Kietzman drove off without even getting a ticket.”

    Here’s the article about the myth.

    John Here let me help you by spelling it out for you. You want to rant on and on about how Kevin has beat this person and that person blah blah blah which you believe makes Kevin king of sports talk radio. Blah blah blah.

    My point which you apparently were unable to understand was that Richard Nixon won two elections and beat many other qualified candidates to do it. Much like Kevin has beaten other people. Seeeeeee get it. But just because Nixon won these elections doesn’t mean he was a good president. Just because Kietzman has beaten some folks in the ratings does not mean he is not a ego centric, insecure, and less then honorable person. Do u understand now?

    So let me turn the question back around to u. What does K.K. alleged BJ have to do with his ability as a radio host? Why is a story from 2004 important? What’s next you are going to send me a clip of K.K.’s birth announcement from the Catholic school times?

    Also this may shock you John. But police often will let so called celebrities off. Maybe they got an 810 shirt. Tell me John how are you going to explain these facts. K.K. left his wife for a young co-worker/intern? Or is that just a myth? Maybe its just an urban legend that K.K. would go to Vegas and engage in adult entertainment at some local brothel’s on the company dime?

    Yeah John I think you need to find some new heroes. Because Kevin has a lot of mud on his soul both literally and figuratively. But hey he’s your KING huh?

    See the bad part is some folks that write on this blog have worked with or for K.K. and we know him all to well.

    The news is he is your king. And I’m just pointing out the emperor has no clothes on. But obviously a person’s character is no concern of yours. We agree to disagree.

    Some people would be Michael Jackson fans if they saw video of him molesting young boys because “he’s talented”. For “me” his character would impact if I liked him or not, or supported him or not.

    On my Oct 30th 4:21 post I pointed out why I dislike KK. No BJ’s mentioned. You like him cheater or not. Despicable person or not. Your business. Your choice. I choose something else.
