Post-mortem, Nebraska (02/20)

It’s not going to get any easier, folks.

Baylor is going to be desperate – and the Bears will be at home Saturday. Two days later, Texas – which might be the best team in the Big 12 right now – comes to Manhattan. And then it’s KU a few days after that.

You all can see what lies ahead, but none of that is important right now. This team doesn’t seem right at the moment. Some of you have suggested it’s youth, and some have decided it’s on Frank. I’m not sure where I stand, and I’m not sure it’s important. But I’ll echo Frank’s line last night about the team winning together and losing together.

That’s how it is.

But, no doubt, something has to give – soon. I wrote before the week started this was a critical stretch for K-State. A win in Waco would be enormous, but who in their right mind would predict such a thing in light of what we’ve seen the past couple of weeks? It’s almost as if the players are starting to believe they can’t win on the road.

Talent isn’t and won’t be an issue the remainder of the season, just as it wasn’t last night. Some will argue the effort was there last night; I might argue otherwise.

Doesn’t matter. None of it does. The Cats have some soul-searching to do. Give Nebraska credit because the Huskers did what they had to do to be successful. The same couldn’t be said for K-State.
