Wasted Optimism

We are back…. well, "back"

Pasted Optimism: 6/21/2010

Pasted Optimism is a place where we periodically post a collection of links, quick thoughts, and hopefully one day, a haiku.  Click here to view archive.

John Smith named Freestyle Coach of the Year.  Wrestling!

Oklahoma State lands LB recruit from Georgia, Demarcus Sherod. Sherod (#24 ILB – ESPN, 3 stars – scout) stated that his unofficial visit a few weeks ago sealed the deal as evidenced by this quote: “The visit caused me to pick Oklahoma State. The coaching staff and the players really made me decide it was the place for me.”

Remember the days when the visit was what killed the deal?  In the 80’s and 90’s, Pat Jones and Bob Simmons exhausted themselves coming up with excuses why recruits couldn’t see our facilities.  “Sorry, the carpet guy is in there right now, you’ll get to see Lewis Field another time.. I promise.”….”I would love to show you the weight room, but I left my weight room keys in my other jacket.  To bad.. you really would have liked it because it is so not shitty.” -Sam

From NewsOK: Bill Snyder says he prefers a Big XII with two divisions, title game.  As terrible of an idea as this is, keep in mind that this current K-State coach has the same name as the great Bill Snyder from the 90’s that turned their program around and is now retired… so that has to count for something. -Sam

Travis Ford is excited about Nebraska and Colorado leaving  Take 4 wins away from Kansas each year and force them to travel to Stillwater, Austin, Waco, College Station and Norman every year. Things just got a lot harder for Bill Self, and a little easier for everyone else. We’re excited too Coach.

    Thank god one day Holder put his arm around Pickens and pointed to the rusted up erector set stadium of death and said. “If you build it, recruits will come”

    Now they have AC in their shoe lockers.

    I used to live across the street from the old stadium in the “Patio Club Apartments” before the renovations. It was pretty sad to look across the street at your Alma Matter’s football stadium and think “When are they gonna raze that eyesore?”.

    I can’t seem to find any pictures of the rusted bleacher underbelly that was the outside decor of Lewis Field online. Boone may have had them removed from the internet so recruits wouldn’t stumble onto them and think we still played on the set of Mad Max, Beyond Thunderdome.
    If anyone has a pic, please post a link to it here or email it too me at samuelbryant11@gmail.com. Would love to see it and reminisce/vomit.
