K-State acts like it has never been there before, makes a T-shirt commemorating Oklahoma win
Kansas State doesn't have a rich, storied football history, but there are some things to be proud of.
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.
