So were tons of local folks. Nearly everyone in this town wanted to see just one of our local sports teams matter and win a national title.
That little dream is over. Way over.
K State got run over by un-ranked Baylor.
It’s season came to an earsplitting THUD!
The romance of a little town college team from Manhattan, Kansas playing for the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP is so over. In fact, the season could almost be forgotten if K State loses to Texas next week. If that happens, no BCS Bowl at all.
Sure K-State could get the bridesmaid bowl, but even that’s unlikely. Nobody in the national media wanted them playing in anything that mattered in the first place.
And they got their wish.
On top of that, Oregon, the other not so welcome team, also lost.
So the dream of playing in the championship game is over for both. Now it will likely be Notre Dame and Alabama. The media dream event,
The nation will be happy, but we Midwesterners in Loserville won’t be smiling.
Again, the Chiefs suck, the Royals are a major joke, KU doesn’t have a football program, MU has been a decent football team but is never a challenge to be anything more than cannon fodder for the big boys.
Nobody had heard of Kansas State or Bill Snyder.
Now they never will. It’s also very unlikely that K-State quarterback Collin Klein will win the Heisman. That’s pretty much over with the big loss. It wasn’t close. K-State was never in the game with the nobodys from Baylor.
If this sounds a bit bitter it’s meant to be.
This city and area has such great sports fans, but we just keep getting our faces kicked in year after year. At this time no team that matters has anything going now or likely will for years to come. Nothing but “wait til next year…our farm system…boy did we get some guys in the draft….we’re playing for the future…well in 2015 we will ….. blah, blah, blah.”
Guess what? We’re jinxed.!
My hat is so very off to KU and Bill Self.
It’s the only great program we have or have EVER had, the KANSAS BASKETBALL PROGRAM. Thank you, Bill Self.
Nice effort, Kansas State and Bill Snyder. Sadly, in the end, it’s like the tree that fell in the forest.
NOBODY EVEN HEARD IT THUD!!!
