    Wow, I sincerely apologize if I have offended you. That was not my intention at all. I wasn't trying to take a shot at the site or at you. I was simply agreeing with Darman's comment that is it very hard to build a program from scratch and it isn't for everyone. The reason I have stayed at KSU (and have been very resolute in doing so) is bc I love the Big XII, but I have started thinking about moving schools too bc I'm not sure that I am the guy that can rebuild the Wildcats. I love the site as evidenced by the media I write and the wiki stuff I work on. I try to be an active member who contributes to the community. I was simply trying to agree that building a team from scratch is hard and not for everyone, and questioning if I can even do it. I was not trying to take shots at you or the site and apologize if it came across that way.

    Agreed. It is becoming increasingly more and more difficult to build a team that isn’t already good or in a select few states. The only reason I’m still at KSU is bc I’m a Big XII fan in real life and love the conference on the site. But I’m questioning that decision more and more
  3. Once again we have concluded another season without a bowl berth. There are no words to adequately describe my emotions at this moment. Before the season started I promised the fans that this would be a season to remember, and I let you all down. I failed to live up to the expectations that I set for myself and for this team, and for that I am sorry. But this is not the end of the road. It is just another step on the journey. We will rise above this and we will be better for it. We graduate our starting RB, LT, and #1 WR on offense and lose our LOLB on defense. But we bring everyone else back along with some very talented recruits and some guys coming off of redshirt. I have every expectation that we will be an improved team next season. Now lets dive into a few observations about the stats: Rahim Murrell really improved his play down the stretch. In the first 6 games of the year he threw 12 TDs and 12 INTs. In the last 6 he threw 8 TDs and 4 INTs. If he can continue to grow and take better care of the ball that will help our offense immensely. I can't say enough good things about the season Shawn Reyes had. As a redshirt freshman he was #2 on the team in tackles, led the team in INTs, and scored a TD. Javier Tovar had a breakout year for us recording 6.5 sacks and an INT. I'm really excited to see what he can do next year as the middle of the line improves around him. Ricky Seau had an interesting year. He had 7 games with 30 or less yards and 4 games with 80 or more yards. He will be our #1 WR next year so we are hoping to see a little more consistent version of him next year. I'll open the floor to questions now...

  5. We are pretty excited. Our #1 goal was to keep our home grown talent at home and we were able to do that this season. Sammy Schuler was a guy we identified early on as a guy we could go and get out of Texas. He projects to be a starter for us as a true freshman so we hope to see him step up and make some plays for us next year. Long term we hope that pairing him with Daniel Ohara can give us stability that we have never had in the secondary. And we are hopeful that Jermaine Jordan and P.K. Lovelace can develop alongside Jhonny Palacios to give us some good passing targets for Julius Minnow in 2022.

    Thanks Rahim... nice job fumbling the game away again. God that’s frustrating. I lost so many 1 possession or overtime games to come up 1 short of a bowl. Picked Graham twice but had 3 fumbles. So freaking frustrating. GG @stormstopper! Guess I needed one more year.
  7. The year was 2016. Kansas State entered the Sunflower Showdown against the Kansas Jayhawks with a 5-6 record and a bowl berth on the line. The Jayhawks trotted a freshman QB by the name of Eric Jennings onto our turf to try and stop our first bowl appearance. Well, a 138 yard passing performance and 2 picks later the Jaybirds went home with their wings clipped and we went to our first ever bowl game. Tomorrow afternoon the Jaybirds are, once again, the only thing standing between us and a bowl game. And once again the trot out a freshman QB, Christian Graham, who isn’t ready for the spotlight. There are a lot similarities between 2016 and 2020. But one key thing is different: As special as it was to clinch a bowl in front of our home fans, it will be even better to do it on their field, in front of their fans. Nothing is better than hearing a record breaking crowd go from amped up at opening kick off to completely silent when the final horn sounds. And make no mistake, that is exactly what is about to happen. Kansas is a good football team, but they have no idea what is coming for them. Nothing will stand in the way of our bowl game. We have come too far to go home empty handed. I’m dedicating this one to our seniors. Elijah Humphrey - You work harder than anyone I have ever seen and you don’t get enough credit. 924 yard rushing and 12 TDs this season. That is a heck of a senior year. Let's get you that 1,000 yards and your first victory over the Jaybirds. My man Devon Tillman, I wanted that 1,000 yard season for you this year and it didn’t break that way. But it’s been a pleasure working with you all season (and beating you down in Madden after practice). You may not make 1,000 yards, but we can get you to 10 TDs when you burn Bradley Spurlock a couple of times. Ari Kern - You always have my back brother. I’ve never had someone watching my blindside like you do. I couldn’t do it without you. Brian Kowalski - 32 tackles, 3 sacks, and a forced fumble. You have been a force at OLB. Lets hook up for 1 more game and get that bowl berth brother. The national media doesn’t give us a chance. They say Kansas has a better running game, better wide receivers, better tight ends, and a better offensive line. They say that every area of their defense is better than ours and that it will be a 3 score game. But they don’t know how pissed off we are. They don’t know how ready we are to play. They don’t know how we used our bye week to prepare. I wouldn’t trade anyone on this team. To my teammates - We are building something special here, something the fans have longed for for years. And tomorrow we see phase 1 of that. Tomorrow we earn the right to go bowling, but it doesn’t stop there. To the fans - this is for you. You have suffered for far too long. You show up and pack out Memorial Stadium (seriously, who names a stadium that? Memorial to what? The 2020 season?) and you won’t be disappointed. We can’t do this without you. To the Jaybirds - When you walk off the field in defeat tomorrow, don’t beat yourself up too much. Afterall, I AM THE GREATEST.
  8. I would like to take a moment to introduce the Kansas State Wildcat class of 2024. We hit the recruiting trail hard this year and focused on bringing in our homegrown talent. And it paid off, as we signed the 3 top recruits in the state of Kansas. The Boys from Kansas WR Jermaine Jordan 6-0 157 Fr Medicine Lodge (Medicine Lodge, KS) 1.0 of 4.0 [Speed] Jermaine Jordan is a guy that we identified early on as a great talent to groom alongside Jhonny Palacios, Nathaniel Lewis-Abrams, and Joel DeLacruz-Venegas as replacements to Devon Tillman and Ricky Seau. Jermaine has true burner speed but will more then likely red shirt next year while we work on some route running aspects of his game and try to get him bulked up a little bit. CB Daniel Ohara 5-9 202 Fr Basehor-Linwood (Basehor, KS) 1.0 of 4.0 [Man Coverage] Fixing our secondary was a big emphasis for us this recruiting cycle. Daniel Ohara will probably also redshirt for 2021 but he and Sammy Schuler will anchor our secondary for years to come. TE P.K. Lovelace 6-1 225 Fr Atwood (Atwood, KS) 1.5 of 4.5 [Blocking] P.K. Lovelace was a target of opportunity. We are very pleased with Damani Askew's first 2 seasons, but you can't overlook a guy who is this talented from your state. P.K. will redshirt in 2021 and then battle it out with Damani in 2022. Everybody Else CB Sammy Schuler 5-10 191 Fr Poteet (Poteet, TX) 2.5 of 4.0 [Man Coverage] Sammy Schuler was a guy we identified as someone we thought we could get and get that could immediately contribute for us. So we designated him our star player and got an early commit. We are looking forward to seeing what Sammy can do next season against the talented wideouts in the Big XII. OT Hunter Lowry 6-2 303 Fr Sinton (Sinton, TX) 1.0 of 3.5 [Run Blocking] DE Prince Vann 6-0 258 Fr Bridge City (Bridge City, TX) 1.0 of 3.5 [Blitz] OG Lorenzo Long 6-1 296 Fr Delta Academy (Marks, MS) 1.0 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] LS Dante Kirkpatrick 6-3 263 Fr Athens (Athens, AL) 1.5 of 3.5 [Specialized] P Carter Baughman 5-8 178 Fr Chamberlain (Tampa, FL) 1.0 of 3.5 [Power] C Nicolas Aranda Jr. 6-1 259 Fr Cardinal Mooney (Sarasota, FL) 1.0 of 3.0 [Run Blocking] QB Kamar Parris 6-7 224 Fr Northeast (Macon, GA) 1.0 of 3.0 [Pocket] OLB Andy Amador 6-1 225 Fr Eastlake (Chula Vista, CA) 1.0 of 3.0 [Coverage] OT Prince Palacios 6-7 266 Fr Comanche (Comanche, TX) 1.0 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] RB Jason Petty 5-8 205 Fr Elsik (Houston, TX) 1.0 of 3.0 [Speed] DE Jacquies Greene 6-4 245 Fr Port Charlotte (Port Charlotte, FL) 1.5 of 3.0 [Blitz] As you can see, we really prioritized the secondary and the offensive and defensive lines this recruiting cycle. We are very happy with the class we were able to bring in. Along with these guys, we also have a 3.5* WR, 3.5* DT, 4.5* DT, 4* OT, and 5* ILB all coming off their redshirts for the 2021 season. I will now open the floor for questions.
  9. Rahim says to consider it done
  10. I think I found an error. I didn’t see the scenario where Kansas State makes the big 12 title game? Lol

    Well crap. Clearly that didn't work out

    Carney is only a 3/3 kicker too. He played a heck of a game. I wish we could have pulled it out and given him the game ball.
