@wissox I can’t really think of any other reason to be in prime time lol. Actually going into the year TCU wasn’t supposed to be this good and KU wasn’t supposed to be this bad, couple that with tight games since TCU joining the conference someone probably thought it was an ok choice.
@BShark Soley to blame? Hell no! Not even close. Part of the overall problem that will keep the Chiefs from winning a Super Bowl. Hell yes! The team is too flawed for someone less than perfect to guarantee that. Alex Smith is pretty darn good - way better than the crapfest KC had at QB since Green, but he’s not elite (i.e.Montana or Brady). And I’m afraid with that defense that’s what you’d need. I would’ve been shocked if KC would’ve won with the D on the field, the O had to close and they couldn’t. It’s just sad to watch - it’s always one unit or the other O or D that’s inept.
@jayballer54 Well, obviously when you were a kid you were almost a dictionary definition of bandwagon–Packers and Yankees in the 50s and 60s? Don’t get so upset about it–I would say pretty much half the country was the same and the other half was on the “Hate them” bandwagon. Face it, embrace it–you became a fan of those teams when they dominated the papers and the airwaves. No competition for your MLB or NFL attention in the 50s and 60s (A’s were a joke, Chiefs were new league AFL).
No one should or does question your homegrown KU loyalty. Don’t take it so seriously. You just happen to be kind of lucky to have the fandom you do.
@justanotherfan Let’s just go with speaking before thinking. Kinda stupid to not be more careful in his word choice, but although I have long considered Ditka an idiot I am going to conclude he probably just thinks things are not oppressive anymore.
I am equal opportunity in my willingness to forgive idiotic exaggeration. Kaep similarly pushed my limits with some of the stuff he said and with his Castro shirt. I liked his silent dignified protest better.
