Make no mistake the Copper/BWW Bowl is an absolute MUST win. Unlike Husker fan who was as embarrassed as Michigan to play in an Alamo bowl, a win over a 7-5 Michigan is Mecca for K-Stater.
The unthinkable almost happened in 1998 when K-State was playing in the B12 championship game with an appearance for a National Championship on the line. The voice of purple little Kansas brother was unbearable because unlike Kansas, K-Stater and Mizzou have no idea how to win with dignity. That 1998 K-state team was upset by Texas A & M as Michael Bishop could have overthrown IRAQ that day and they would be further humbled by Drew Brees in the Alamo Bowl.
This is a big game for the locals and although this will be simply a merciful end to the football season for most of you on this board for those of us living in Kansas City this could be the trail of 1,000 tears as we listen to Jeb and Clep compare Bill Snyder to Bo Schembechler through a wad of Skoal.
GOD SAVE OUR SOULS!
