Bruce Weber, Mister Mediocre

Bruce Weber, Mister Mediocre

I’ve started to write a few blog posts about Bruce Weber and K-State basketball, oftentimes referred to as Bruceketball, only to delete the posts before posting them publicly because I found my thoughts to be too negative.  I try to be positive in both real life an my online life, but it is definitely difficult at times.  I enjoy following politics, but the negativity really gets to me and I get caught up in it too often.  I also enjoy…

Comparing 2018 K-State and 2019 K-State By The Numbers

I asked a couple barbecue experts which barbecue…

Libery Bowl Trip Day One

Libery Bowl Trip Day One

My Mom and Dad and I took a short trip to Memphis last week for the Liberty Bowl where K-State played Navy.  We left on Monday, December 30th after I worked in the morning. The drive is about seven hours and 15 minutes from us if you don’t stop.  With a couple stops it ends up being about seven and a half hours.  We took a route through Springfield, Missouri and Jonesboro, Arkansas, which is pretty hilly and curvy in…
