Does this Review Match the Victories Prediction?

Against my better judgment and doctor's orders I perused a football preview last night semi-nude (I had my reading glasses on) in the nook of my favorite oak tree. I read it over and it appeared to actually be not that dreadful. Then I noticed their projected wins, losses, and swing games. They have us going 2-9 (wins against Texas State and Buffalo, with Rice being 50/50). Predictions don't mean anything, but I don't like the looks of this one bit. At least insult the team in the preview to prep me for that type of season. Have you no decency Athlon Sports?

  • Wow. That dude has a rather harsh assessment of our prospects. I'm sure we'll give Rice a good thrashing (beat them by at least 2 points).

    While I agree that the 2005 season was our "most competitive" in the Big12 in the sense that we had the most close games (including a near first-ever win vs OU) in conferece, technically '06 was our best in conference with a 3-5 record, as opposed to a 2-6 the year before (with two OT losses). I guess I'm really splitting hairs, but at least we've seen two consecutive multiple conference-wins seasons.

    Man, our expectations are low.

  • You're right our conference record was better last season, but they seemed to be more competitive the season before. All in all, you've got to take the wins. We need to turn around our non-conference record.

    I like your blog. You should help us in our fight against our rival Texas.

    Kansas State-making Texas our bitch since 1863.

    "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." That is our logic on this blog. Thus, we shall join forces to defeat the ShortHorn hordes as they attempt to sack our little villages. Strength through Unity!

    To arms!

  • Chico,
    You have got to be f-ing kidding me...

  • Since he is apparently part of our alliance, I'll be nice and assume Chico uses the term "rival" to loosely describe anyone or thing you compete or have competed against at any point within the last 144 years; dreams not excluded.

    Had Chico not been formally inducted into the alliance I would have undoubtedly gone into a complex metaphor comparing KSU to my phallus and Texas to my hand in regards to the constant beatings paired with pleasure and determination but instead I merely welcome Mr. Chico.

    Here's to Mr. Chico: Making Texas and possibly Chuck Norris his bitch since birth.

    You are right - Chico himself could most likely take on the entire student body of Texas by himself. We imagine him something of a Samson - able to take on the whole philistine army with the jawbone of a donkey.

    Gov. Pat did something similar in fending off some uber-thirsty Sig Eps for a "Ladies Only Intern Appreciation" kegger held at Pecan Bottoms in Cameron Park. Except the Gov used a prison shiv and a sawed-off shotgun.

    God bless.

  • You're right. Texas isn't K-State's rival. Texas would have to beat K-State in something for it to be a rivalry again.

  • Yeah chico, you're right...

    Yeah, I guess Texas never beats KSU in anything.

  • chico, let's not get too high off the weed of our three-point arse-kicking of UT. if ever we had a chance to brag on UT, it was the 48-7 beating in 1999.

  • BearMeat,

    We're creating a football preview and were hoping you could help us out with the Baylor football season.

    It will look similar to this
