KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Kansas State Wildcats continue to get shunned by the sports world, and in a recent article by The Miami Herald's sports columnist Joseph Goodman, it doesn't get much better.
In an article posted Thursday titled, "Please, no Kansas State in title game," Goodman expresses his concerns for having K-State play in the BCS National Championship in Miami, Fla.
Buried in the middle of the column, Goodman writes, "No one - and I mean no one except for maybe a few crusty sportswriters and a handful of people in the Middle of Nowhere, Kan. - wants to see the Kansas State football team board a plane on New Year's Day 2013."
The sports writer goes on to bash the Wildcats name by describing the potential national championship game between Kansas State and Alabama as "downright embarrassing."
The undefeated 'Cats are ranked No. 3 in the country. This ranking has helped them gain a tremendous amount of respect, but it still may not be enough to some fans.
Earlier this year, K-State was picked to finish sixth in the Big 12. Fans were hurt, disappointed and players felt disrespected.
But this perceived notion was laid to rest last week, when Heisman hopeful and K-State quarterback Collin Klein, led his team to a blowout victory against West Virginia 55-14. Klein had three passing touchdowns and four rushing.
Bill Snyder's 'Cats are now on track to make a run at the BCS National Championship.
In the eyes of the Miami Herald's Goodman, he would like nothing more than to see the 'Cats dreams get crushed this weekend against No. 14 Texas Tech.
