I didn't want to give off any impression of disrespect for KSU, as I respect what they've been able to pull off.
it took bill snyder, from the time he came to k-state in... 89 i believe... until 2003 before he was able to win a conference championship.
that sucks... for a team like iowa state for example.
they were 11-0 even in 1998 and still didn't go to the BCS. It goes to show you how tough it is to win a championship in the big 12. Iowa state and CPR have a long journey in front of them. So, for me at least, it helps to keep expectations in check. --A great coach still needs time to take a team like iowa state and turn them into a true program.
So these next 2 years: are going to be tough. 2010 and 2011 schedules are brutal. We may not take steps forward- and that sucks for all of us. But, good things may still be ahead for us cyclone fans.
Des Moines, Iowa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia... way better than anything Kansas can offer (KC is primarily in Missouri, doesn't count)

I root for KSU to do well in most games. The only ill-will I have against them is that Snyder used to continually poach McCarney's recruits. That doesn't happen as much these days, but KSU doesn't have the pull that they did in Snyder's heyday.
Kansas State sucks :jimlad:

Anyway, I have no hard feelings for KSU and hope they can finish second in the North for football behind ISU.:biggrin:
Also, what do K-Staters think about the Farmageddon Game? I really think we should be playing for some kind of trophy since this is a good rivalry game in the B12. There has been talk about an old school tractor to be brought to the game with the winning team keeping it for the year. Could be sweet. What say you K-State? Let's face it, ISU and K-State could use some cool publicity....and this "Farmageddon" game and trophy could get us some more. (The two ag-schools...etc...)
