Just saw Ron Prince talking to Sam Keller. Can only imagine what those two were chatting about.
Anyway, we’re here in Lincoln, as I’m sure many of you are as well. I have no idea how this game will play out, and if I did, I’d probably wager a considerable amount of money on the outcome. But, obviously, I don’t, so I’m not.
As for last night, K-State men’s basketball is officially the must-see event of the winter. Shame on you if you haven’t used your tickets yet, and shame on you if fail to recognize how terrific Michael Beasley is. Yes, he’s supposed to be good? But 32 and 24 good? In his first college game? Because it’s early and we’re into stating the obvious today, he’s special.
But what about the guards? Thought to be a weakness, if Blake Young, Jacob Pullen, Fred Brown and, when he’s finally healthy, Clent Stewart can hit open shots – which Young admitted Beasley’s presence would likely yield all season – the Wildcats will be lethal. Imagine surrounding Beasley and Bill Walker in the frontcourt with Young, Pullen and Stewart? Or, as your probable starting five when Big 12 play rolls around, Beasley, Walker and Hoskins in the frontcourt joined by Young and Pullen or Stewart? That’s kind of nice.
Holler at me with your thoughts. On football. On basketball. On life. I’m in a philosophical mood, ready to dispense advice. Fire when ready…
