Get ready for the Ugly Stepbrother to gloat about their team!!!

  • To say that this is a cream-puff schedule would still be giving it too much credit. Seriously Bruce, you think you can hide your crap team behind a bunch of YMCA clubs.


  • @BeddieKU23 Isn’t there an ACC team in that list? And isn’t the ACC the very best conference??

    (no fiction, all malice)

  • @ParisHawk

    Picked good years to play I believe the projected last place finishers in both the ACC & Pac-12

  • @BeddieKU23 It will be interesting to see how they do and if Weber can keep his job if they fail to make the dance for the thrid year in a row. A lot of the KSU guys ik wanted him gone last year.

  • @wissoxfan83 This is a weak ass SOS for you lol

  • @BeddieKU23 MERCY, MERCY, MERCY that is sooooooooooo weak. - --ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @ParisHawk Is Boston College in the ACC? that’s the only possible I can see and WEAK lmao - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @kjayhawks

    Unless he goes something like 12-6 in conference play and beat KU both times nothing will get them in the tournament with that non-conference schedule. It will be in the 300’s. The Big-12 should be mad at them for bringing them down as a whole

  • @BeddieKU23 does Mickey Mouse schedule their games?

  • @BeddieKU23

    I wouldn’t be surprised if KSU lost a couple of those games. Saint Louis will be tough at home. Both Washington State and Colorado State could go on the road and win. And the tough thing for them is that if they are any worse than 9-2 after that schedule, they are heading for a double digit loss season.

    Look at their start to the conference season and tell me where you see a win:

    vs. Texas

    at Kansas

    vs. Oklahoma

    at Texas Tech

    vs. Baylor

    at Oklahoma State

    vs. West Virginia

    at Iowa State

    at Tennessee (SEC Challenge)

    Maybe they beat Baylor since they are at home, or possibly Oklahoma. I doubt they win on the road and KSU just doesn’t have the talent to match Texas or West Virginia. KSU could go from being 9-2 or 10-1 to 9-11 or 10-10.

    That’s the downside of a schedule that soft. KSU could have an awesome looking record early in the year that basically goes up in smoke once conference play starts. They could start conference play 2-10 or 3-9 with how their first 12 stack up (KU, Baylor and West Virginia twice, plus games at Oklahoma State, Iowa State and Texas Tech, and better teams like Texas and Oklahoma coming to Manhattan - and maybe an improved TCU). Weber could be buried by mid February.

    Weber basically has to run the table, then hope he can upset 2 of Texas, Oklahoma, West Virginia and Baylor in Manhattan to start the season (since he probably is staring at 1-3 on the road with Kansas, Oklahoma State, Iowa State and Texas Tech). And that’s just to start the conference year 3-5. Any worse than that and he’s 2-6 or 1-7 to start the conference season, and everything is already circling the drain at that point.

  • @justanotherfan Isn’t the little general at St. Louis ?

  • @BeddieKU23

    If Bruce were a REAL man, they would all be played on the road.


    Has this year’s mock burial been announced?

    I hear he is going to bury a likeness of Frank Martin in concrete tennies out at Tuttle Creek Reservoir!!!


  • Question: is this the year that KSU fans finally start wearing hair helmets to honor Bruce?

  • @justanotherfan

    That’s how I see it as well, hard to find expected wins for them especially early in conference play. Washington St is not a good team outside of its big man. Colorado St has been competitive they could beat KSU. Not sure what Ford is going to do at St. Louis in year one given they were not a very good team last season.

    To be fair I don’t think K-St will be terrible this season, Wade, Iwundu & Brown should keep them in games and DJ Johnson was a guy who matched up well against us last year. But outside their starting lineup its really bad, maybe a freshman like Sneed becomes a good rotation player for them. That’s about as nice as I can be without remembering who coaches them and how much of their life they spend trying to beat us.

  • @BeddieKU23

    I agree that KSU could be kind of okay. But it’s not hard to imagine a scenario where they lose on the road to St. Louis and drop a close one at home to Colorado State, then start the conference season by losing to Texas, getting blown out at AFH, dropping three straight close games to OU, Tech and Baylor, then losing by double digits at OSU. Suddenly you’re 9-8, 0-6 in conference and players are complaining about PT and shots with West Virginia coming to town.

    It could unravel really fast for KSU. Yeah, they could start 11-0 and upset Texas to start the conference season, but the first scenario that I outlined is more likely. They shouldn’t be terrible, but if they get off to a bad start, it could certainly snowball, and if any of their main 4 guys you listed struggles, it goes south fast.

  • @justanotherfan

    I certainly imagine scenario #1 being more likely than them being undefeated and winning their early Big-12 games. Undefeated is not out of reality considering how poor the competition is but it’s K-St we are talking so really I expect them to lose.

  • @BeddieKU23

    KU’s RPI is going to take a hit every time it plays KSU.

  • @BeddieKU23 Funny thing is KSU wont run the table on that schedule.

  • I dont really care what their record is as long as we kick their tails im good.

  • @ParisHawk On Newell’s podcast he said there’s probably 7 or 8 teams better than the Big12’s 2nd place team.

  • @Lulufulu said:

    @BeddieKU23 Funny thing is KSU wont run the table on that schedule.

    Probably true, but it’s still an absurd schedule even for KSU. Reeks of Weber trying to save his job.

  • I saw that schedule a while back and honestly thought Gardner-Webb was a high school.

  • Rumour is Bruce tried to schedule some high schools but the NCAA wouldn’t allow it.

  • Weak Sauce. The funny thing is…they will lose some of those games, I think.
