Game threads are something special. More often than not the full gauntlet of human emotion is experienced within a few short hours. I wade through the joy, sorrow, excitement, and heartbreak, and select the best comments to tell the story of the game.
In this edition we ride an emotional rollercoaster as the TCU Horned Frogs toyed with EMAW nation. Things start out realistic enough; Wildcat fans have no delusions about their chances in the game. However, as K-State takes a 35-17 lead into halftime, they start to believe. Their belief turns to despair though as the Horned Frogs storm back in the second half and the Wildcats punt away any chance of an upset.
Here’s the best comments from Bring On The Cats. Grab some popcorn and enjoy.
Great kickoff coverage there
Oh you have to be kidding me, already? pathetic.
About our run defense…
Well that happened.
Pretty much how I pictured this game going
Seems like the Pee Wee league game my kids play in where one team has all the super fast players.
Okay, that’s how you gotta start on offense.
What was the real purpose of that throw??
He’s on fire right now
Looks like he learned a little patience watching Cook last week
God, I love power football!
11 man pile into the endzone… of course its a touchdown.
Nice response boys!
That drive was so Snyderball
We’d be a good rugby team
So awful, so very, very awful
The tackling was not good on that kickoff return #FireSeanSnyder
For crying out loud
Oh man, what a freaking catch by Doctson
Not much you can do with that sort of catch
These are legal right?
So, Approx 2 min, approx 150 yards of offense and two TD’s. I HATE TCU
Great effort there by Silmon
Regardless of outcome, the K-State running game is in #MANBALL territory today.
OMG, a reverse!
A reverse… we are up to page 3 of the play book!
Damn, just a bad throw there
Nice kick! Please don’t let it set up a 97-yard run
Great punt, but TCU laughs at our field position game.
What a freaking catch. Why can’t we have one of those receivers on our roster?
Thank god for that hold
Hmm, a stop
Wow, an actual punt from TCU?
I didn’t know they had a punter.
Great throw by Hubener
OHHH what a catch!
Klein is the first and second option for Hubes.
That’s how you burn the blitzing safety!
Having the game of his life!
That was a MICHAEL BISHOP touchdown.
I like how our QB’s jersey is clean. So clean.
The defense needs to tackle
Tried to ride him all the way into the end zone. Disgusting
TACKLE THE GUY WITH THE BALL
For the love of… Wide open, then weak-[butt] tackles. So freaking soft
That was a nice stop by the run defense.
Two consecutive stops. Might have something going here.
I find myself holding my breath on every TCU play.
I’m okay with that field goal.
That was just ugly from the get go
Wow, he got blindsided
Run the ball already
Joe, you have to learn how to get down early
Wow, those are some bullets from Hubes
Holy cow. A lead.
OH MY GAWD. Is this really happening?
Don’t wake me up
GO CATS GO!!!
Cats dining on Frog legs. Yum!
Where was this offense in the third quarter last week?
INTERCEPTION, OMG, Elijah Lee
Oh man, that looked so great. Boykin stunned.
Huge, huge, so freaking huge!
Hubener making all the right reads so far tonight
OMG that’s a highlight of the year!
OMG Hubes is a baller.
So how does everyone feel about the offensive play calling right now?
There ya go! CATS WINNING THIS GAME!
Is this real life?
Is it just a fantasy?
Crowd is doing its job
There you go Newian – got over the love taps of the first quarter and laying some wood now
Doctson saw that pain coming
Our defense was totally expecting that
Defense is in the zone
That punt went into the student section!
Wow, the Frogs seem rattled.
TCU’s aggression is killing them
Bury ’em Bill! Bury Them!!!!
Love the stiff arm from Hubes.
First down is even better there. Run more time.
TCU has to know this is coming at this point, and they still ain’t stopping it.
There we go!!!
OMG! OMG! OMG! TCU going out of their way to hand Cats the game.
HALFTIME (K-State 35 – TCU 17)
Best thing about the game right now is that TCU seemed pretty much hopeless on defense
Joe Hubener is out rushing Aaron Green
WOW Hubes, just WOW!!!
Well that sucks
Hubes just threw to the wrong guy
The receiver slipped or was knocked to the ground
Welp, they’re staying aggressive at least
Why aren’t we running the ball?
Panic has set in
Can’t take too many hits like that
Suddenly the pass protection ain’t so solid
Well play calling hasn’t really been our strong suit
I will point out we all complained about them being too conservative against Okie Light.
Nice first down!
The announcers are calling out our play calling…
They did last week as well.
Huge series for Defense coming!!
Ugh. This is going to get ugly.
Whelp, that isn’t going to help
THAT late hit gets a flag?!
McDaniel let Doctson go
Doctson wide open.
Totally bought on Boykin being the carrier there
Cats can’t handle success this year
Just like that, they are within 4
Totally new ballgame and we have zero momentum.
Need a scoring drive so much right now
Someone in good purple step up and make a play
I knew we were living on borrowed time.
Are the referees eating their flags?
Completely clean pick
There’s the huge play we needed
Run the ball
Another wasted down
Stop throwing deep!
That was absolutely pass interference!
Big 12 refs…
Another apology incoming
Wow… Big 12 refs in the house again.
Big 12 called and reminded the refs TCU was in the playoff hunt
C’mon fellas, ball is sitting there…
Hey, it’s a 20-yard loss, oh no 5 yard gain.
Dang Starks, pick that and take it to the house
Good work by the defense on that drive
Run the dang ball…
Um, what was that?
You were five yards beyond the line of scrimmage you moron
Hubener that was straight dumb son
Well, the refs didn’t review that… Such bad officials.
Where did THIS Charles Jones come from?
First down and homeward bound – 7 coming up
Punch it in, c’mon
Gotta get 6 here
Just punch them in the face with heavy package
Hot Ziggety! Cats are wild tonight!
Interesting kick off choice
Boykin is so elusive
Lay a helmet on Boykin!
That’s right pee frogs, keep running the ball.
Doctson can’t be covered by college players
This is embarrassing
Trevone Boykin is pretty good
Mistake by TCU offense
An eight minute drive would be nice
Don’t lose this thing in the last 5 minutes!
Getting too cute on offense. Go with what has been working.
BOOM! On Heath
Bell ringer for sure, but no fumble
Not a catch
Wow. They will call for a review
Oh no, this better be a completed pass
Can we get the refs from the Texas Tech game to review this one?
Piss poor series when this needed to be the nail in the coffin
Too much time on the clock now
One dang TD wins it for the Frogs
Tyler Lockett questioning the play calling on Twitter
Now TCU runs it and scored with a minute left. Calling it
Or just give up another big run touchdown
What a ridiculous athlete
I hate everything
Now watch us throw it three times in a row
FRACK, FRACK, FRACK
We cope by drinking
Nice collapse Cats
Got lucky to thread that one through there, Joe
We’ll take that
I guess our best pass play is a PI by TCU
Why speed up the game by passing?
COME ON CATS!!!
Finally, a five-minute looking drive. Although, there are less than 4 minutes left.
Until that play I was thinking the offense was doing well
You got to be kidding. Just go for it… We may not get the ball back
Man, not liking this
Kicking here = surrender. I may quit
So much for power football.
Why would you not go for it on 4th and 1?
IT’S ALL DEFENSE NOW. HOLD YOUR BREATH.
C’mon defense, do your thing
If we lose, this on is on Bill.
I don’t think this team can win in OT against TCU.
We won’t have to find out
Nice tackle by Newlin
If we come up short, this will be on the coaching staff..
This is why we can’t have nice things
No no no no no NO NO
OH [POOP]. THAT TOTALLY SUCKS. I REALLY HATE TCU
RIP I AM DEAD
There it is. Only good thing is we have time to try to answer.
What did you think would happen Bill?
We get what we deserve. Horrible coaching
I would have preferred a 50-point demolition
Hurry and get this torture over with
Remember when our defense was considered a strength?
Wow, Just Wow.
OH NO. I’m going to go have a massive cry now
Yep. Ends on a Hubes turnover.
Never have I seen a K-State team try to win less
Man [screw] TCU forever
This team deserves better coaching decisions. Bill Snyder is writing a note to Boykin right now. I don’t want him to be writing notes anymore.
Two weeks in a row Bill Snyder plays it like an old safe fuddy duddy.
