Fighting, Ever Fighting, For a Wildcat Victory!

There is joy in Wildcat land tonight. Our women, who played at home, destroyed Iowa State:

"Marlies Gipson recorded her fifth double-double of the season and Kimberly Dietz scored a team-high 16 points as Kansas State ran past Iowa State, 80-49, Wednesday evening at Bramlage Coliseum. With the win, Kansas State (13-5, 5-0 Big 12) extended its winning streak to eight games, the longest since a nine-game streak last season and advanced to 5-0 in the Big 12 for the first time since the 2002-03 season."

And our men, despite some real Boulder home town "referee cooking", beat Colorado this evening:

"Michael Beasley scored 26 of his game-high 29 points in the second half and had 13 rebounds, leading Kansas State to a 72-56 victory over Colorado Wednesday night.

Beasley was 9-for-15 shooting in the second half. Bill Walker added 18 points for Kansas State (13-4, 3-0 Big 12) which won for the fourth straight time.

The Wildcats beat Colorado for the fourth consecutive time. They hadn't started out 3-0 in conference play since the 1987-88 season."

Not sure what his problem with KSU is...

The game was enjoyable, but the TV announcing was not. You would think an outfit like ESPN would be able to shell out the dough and get some professionals in the broadcast booth. Having to listen to Dave Armstrong (play-by-play) Doug Gottlieb (analyst) was akin to having root canal performed without anesthetics and with a rusty drill...especially Doug Gottlieb. I am not sure what got the hair up his butt concerning Michael Beasley this year but man, he certainly had no love for Little Mike and never seems to pass up the opportunity to make snarky about both Mike and the Wildcats. You would think he'd be smart enough to at least TRY and hide his disdain on the air.... I finally turned the volume down on the TV, turned the radio on and listened to the K-State announcers. It is annoying because there is a big lag between the radio and my Tivo receiver, but it was the only solution...either that or stick an ice pick in my ears.
