    I’d say Nebraska’s benching of Solich probably had a bigger impact.

    Absolutely inexcusable to bench Reesing. The Fat Man was completely scapegoating Reesing for the loss. Sure Reesing didn’t play well, but he was also sacked, what, five times? Not to mention Mangino’s refusal to commit to a run game to help him out. Plus, it wasn’t Reesing’s fault Mangino stupidly went for it with 8 minutes left on his own 35.

    And as Greg alluded to, Reesing should be absolutely untouchable this year. He saved Mangino’s job and earned him upwards of $10 million in contract extensions. He deserves a little more rope than what he got Saturday.

    This move has the potential to completely ruin the team chemistry in Lawrence.

    The downfall stated occured whne the Heisman trophy talk started, then the refs took away touchdowns in Boulder, and then …. it was : (

    There is a lot more to football than Xs and Os and plays. The morons at Arrowhead do not understand this, and you see the results. The coach has to understand all the little things, who knows……who knows?

    Mangino’s offensive gameplan is void of variety and surprise. Tech ran a cover 2 with little blitzing all game, and KU never adjusted. He hung Reesing out to dry. Reesing hasn’t been as good as the last 2 years, but he’s not the reason for KU’s losing streak. Offensive coaching and a terrible offensive line.

    that said, if KU beats KSU, MU and the Corn, they still win the north. Any of those teams scare you?

    KU would be well advised to be scared of all of them.

    Daniel Thomas the best offensive weapon in the Big 12 North? HAHAHAHA! Laughable. Denario Alexander has that title. This past weekend’s loss at @OU was the best anyone has played and lost? What a stupid comment. MU was leading Oklahoma IN Norman in 2007 in the 4th quarter. The ended up losing by 10. That’s WAY better than the KSU performance this weekend. KSU never lead in this game.

    It takes balls to do what Mangino did in benching Reesing. My opinion is that it was the right move at the time. K-State still lost. If they play that game 10 times KSU loses every game by an average of 21 points. OU did just enough to win. Bill Snyder is still BIG HAT, NO CATTLE. Winning the North is like being Miss Montana at the Miss USA pageant.

    I didn’t agree with benching Reesing…but he has been off all year. Something just isn’t right with him. That being said, he is a guy with a short memory and could come out and light it up this weekend. Then what will the natives have to say.

    Old man kissel once again wheres the scoop,OU was up by 21 and quit playing OU football.They let the Cats back in and then when it got close see ya.OU would be the Cats 10 out of 10 times.If you listen too real sports radio and not K STATE RADIO you would figure out OU was never in an trouble,Stoops probably felt sorry for the old timer Snyder and called the dogs off. 610 kils 810 once again

    mangino had too much pasta friday night. The
    red sauce f*cked up his head and it caused him
    to forget that reesing made him the coach he
    is today.
    This pig coach needs to apologize to reesing and
    the rest of the team for being an idiot. Pulling
    reesing in the game was stupid.
    But all coaches reach a turning point. They hyped
    up KU this year and probably mangino didn’t want
    that. It was too much pressure on the team and
    they felt it. Making this year “historic” was pretty stupid by the AD at KU.
    I really like reesing. He’s a tough player who never gives up. He’s got guts and a great never
    give up attitude.
    Mangino will never see a qb this good again.
    They will never recruit anyone like reesing.
    I’m a mizzou fan and I’ll be glad when he graduates because for all his fault the kid knows
    how to scare the hell out of all us mizzou fans.
    As far as the big 12 north..who cares. I’m looking for mizzou to go 8-4 or 9-3…get a
    decent bowl bid in this tough rebuilding year
    then come back next year and kick some ass.
    OU/Texas/ok state/and KU are losing lots of
    good players and it could be a chance for mizzou
    to really break through in the big 12.
    Mangino has done a good job…but too much pressure on him and his players laid the groundwork for a bad season. This is definitely
    not a “historic year”…and its not “history

    I want to say it was a bad move by Mangino, but…

    I wonder if it was Mangino’s way of sending a strong message to his senior QB. Despite being down “only” 2 possessions, I felt NO WAY Kansas was going to come back. Perhaps Mangino realized that Kansas North hopes were almost gone. So by benching Reesing, it screams at Reesing and the whole team to wake the f**k up.

    It’s not over for the Hawks, but damn close. Maybe Reesing has one last run in him.

    WAIT A DAMN MINUTE HALL — where was your recognition of all this KState talent, that you are apparently now seeing, earlier in the season? We knew about Banks and Thomas from the getgo. Where did you screw up?

    Could it possibly be that coaching is the difference? Could it be that you were wrong in your earlier assessment of Bill Snyder in his return to the sidelines?

    I DON’T GIVE A SHIT. Im so sick of hearing about
    losers and bad players that I’ll cheer for
    anyone who does something decent.
    Shit…I’ve never been to K state but I hope
    they win all their games but one (against MU)
    I can’t wait for ku basketball so I can watch
    a winning team and a classy coach.
    Shit..I’ll go to The other place in downtwon
    overladn park and cheer on Iowa with those
    folks…even though I’ve never been to iowa
    except to drinki.
    I’m sick of watching those east coast pr*ks
    win everything. Boston/NY/Philly…can’t we
    get a decent team and kick their arrogant
    This is pathetic.

    KU’s offense has not been that great all year and although Reesing is not doing well I think it is the result of two things.

    #1 Jake Sharp being hurt. Sharp could make defenses at least respect the run because of his speed. The injury has slowed him down and he is not as quick as last year. That means they just assume Reesing is going to pass and throw the kitchen sink at him to sack him.

    #2 The offensive line is not as good as previous years.

    I think Mangino just felt that Reesing was having a bad day and that changing quarterbacks might provide a spark. He has done this before in his career at KU with quarterbacks. I think he was reaching for anything because this season is slipping away very fast. Desperate coaches take desperate measures.

    A terrible year so far for the Jayhawks and probably not going to get better. Although a win against K-State would make us feel better and stop the losing streak. I would not bet on it though.

    You have been pounding this site with missives that you and your KSU brethren had zero expectations for this season. Now you want us to know you were all aware of the firepower that Thomas and Banks have shown? Doesn

    GREAT post. It really DOES feel like loserville around here. It’s depressing.


    Could you do us non-KSU fans a favor? Wildcat fans are obviously an over-sensitive and insecure bunch and need a pat on the head every now and then.


    Could you write a whole OTC column praising all things K-State? Don’t point out that K-State has only 1 NCAA tourney appearance in 13 years or that MU, KU and Nebraska have recently owned K-State football. Instead, point out how K-State basketball has finished in the Big 12 top 4 for 3 years straight (!). Or how K-State football beat an up-and-coming, well-coached Iowa State team and throttled another up-and-comer, A&M (!). Then explain how much you love the coaches…make up a story how you spend evenings with a Bill Snyder blow-up doll or that you sometimes wake up in a sweat dreaming of Frank Martin.

    Remember, happy K-State fans are great OTC-blogging K-State fans!

    No expectations doesn’t mean no talent. It means you don’t EXPECT much from your team in the coming year. Nubbers, Squawks, and Tiggers all expected much from their team.

    We knew Thomas was good. We knew before Snyder returned that Banks was good. They’ve been consistent in their performance. Your analysis of what we had was clouded by your desire to be correct in your expectation that Snyder would fail in his return.

    And as for your mis-call on Snyder, you need only compare the handling of QB’s between KSU and UK to see what good coaching is, and what it isn’t.

    Keep firing though. Crow gets tender the longer it cooks.

    “Nubbers, Squawks, and Tiggers all expected much from their team.”

    Not the least bit factual and generally a gross over-generalization of the truth. The ‘Tiggers’ were not picked to win anything and lost several key skill players.

    The Tiger faithful new this year’s team would be wildly inconsistent and a chance to compete for the north championship would be best case scenario.

    Maybe if Reesing had raped a girl (allegedly) the night before the game then Mangino would have let him play.

    CN, no cotton-pickin’ way! You’re not getting off-the-hook on this one. Mizzou was blaring the strumpets after their blowout of a bad Illini squad. You Tiggers have short memories.
