College football bias

I only wish I’d had the time to post this before the game, but some might say its safer after the result lol! It definitely is after a 55-14 win, yes!

I guess its fair to say with things like college football support, I let Louise Brooks influence my choice. So yes, as you guessed, I might have developed a Kansas, or to be strictly correct in this case, a Kansas State affiliation. So alright, Manhattan, KS is nearly 200 miles from Cherryvale, and over 100 miles from Wichita, but anyway… its as good a logic as I can come up with. Kansas is nearer, but basketball seems to be their speciality, and football is my true love, so…

Oh, did I mention it, Kansas State are unbeaten this year. And not because they’ve been playing softies, not only were they underdogs last night at West Virginia, they were underdogs when they went to Oklahoma too. Yes, beat both, though beating Oklahoma wasnt as spectacular as yesterday, but that was against a team that simply doesnt lose at home. Oh, they did! I’ll be honest, what I know about Collin Klein beyond stats, and a picture, pretty much nothing. Sadly ESPN America over here dont seem to fancy showing K-State play, for whatever reason. Mind, to be fair, evening games out there arent a time I could watch anyway! But I could catch highlights, or replays, but… 😦

Not that things get easy just now. Next week is at home to Texas Tech, who also thumped West Virginia only a week ago. Alright, they won at home, we won in Virginia, and the match up is in Kansas, but, it wont be easy, thats for sure. After that, Oklahoma State, and some gentle rivalry with my dear friend Kate. I never dreamt when discussing it with her in September that it would be like this though.

As I say, I’m getting quite into college sports lol!

The video, well, this might show a bit of bias, and no, I have no idea who the K-State mask really is. Also, for those from ‘redneck’ country, or West Virginia, and lack a sense of humour, you may be better off avoiding this!
