The Wildcats have played in the Fiesta Bowl twice and the Cotton Bowl three times. In 1998, Kansas State was ranked No. 1 in the country before losing to Texas A&M in the Big 12 title game. Great players like Darren Sproles, Terence Newman, Michael Bishop and Mark Simoneau have played for the program. Bill Snyder has done a fantastic job in Manhattan.
At very least, this isn't the type of program that should be making T-shirts celebrating a win against a conference foe in a September regular-season game. Shield your eyes, Wildcat fans.
For the low price of $19.99, Kansas State's official store is selling shirts with the 24-19 score of its win against Oklahoma on the back.
Now, there has to be certain rules to this. A team that has never been to a bowl game beats a (then) top 10 team? Print those T-shirts. A FCS team beating one of the most historic programs in the sport? Go nuts. Bowl games, championships -- all fair game.
But not a win like this, Kansas State.
This was, for the record, the 18th time K-State has beaten Oklahoma (the Wildcats have lost 71 times to OU, but still). Have a little fun, celebrate the win, maybe even send some taunting texts to that OU fan in your life. But please K-State fans, don't get the shirt. You'll thank us later.
