KSU Fans has become a website where fans can freely come and discuss K-State athletics.

It is with great reluctance that as of May 15, 2008, I will be shutting down KSUFans. I have been paying for this out of my own pocket but, sadly, I am no longer able to do so.

If anyone is interested in purchasing the rights to the domain, the website and database, please contact me through the Contact Us below the banner, with your name, phone number, and best time to call, and I will get back with you.

I guess more KSU fans have become KU fans, and there aren't enough of them left to keep it going.

Oh wait,

SaulBadGuy is going to save the day!!!!

Saul is probably your best bet to keeping it the way it is, and I'm giving him first opportunity to take it over. Saul's passion as a K-Stater is one of the qualities the site needs to have from an owner.

I'm not stopping because it's taking up too much time. I have been doing web hosting, web design, and application development for years. However, I'm experiencing what a lot of businesses are and that is reduced revenue due to harsher economic times. This is strictly a business decision and while I am securing web hosting services for my other sites and income generators, KSU Fans doesn't fit into that model. It's a passion I was willing to spend the money to maintain, but I can do that no longer.

I don't think what Saul is asking is too much for those who find value in this site.

We ALL know how big of a KU fan Saul used to be... and he is one of the MOST Passionate KSU fans? They are in danger!!

heh.

I think mine would be:
KSU Football: Remember when Saul was a fan of KSU football and KU basketball, but went to KSU/KSU after BB won a few games? Orange Bowl, National Championship. You do the math.

It was half/half... I think he went to KSU (?) but was a KU basketball fan because KSU sucked so much. It was pathetic, because he would talk smack about "63-0" and crap during football season and then turn around and talk/root Kansas basketball, iirc, unless they were playing each other. I dunno, when you have to have a system for which rival you root for... :shake:

Wow. I'd never EVER root for WSU (Washington St) as a Husky fan. I reveled this year when they were dismantled by UNC. I prayed for Tony Bennett to leave just to make them bleed. I could NEVER root for the rival school, under any circumstances. Just me though.

Well since Mizzou is the rival school and not KState I don't see a problem. I will never buy a piece of Kstate gear but I will pull for them a little in a bowl game or NCAA game, but it won't hurt my feelings if they lose.

You know, I dont know?

He kind of disappeared after the whole Thuggy leaving incident. He was on here spewing about how Thuggy wouldnt never pull a Roy and how KSU was a destination dream job, GRCOAT, etc...

Then Thuggy bolted... Sual disappeared.

I have seen him post on KSUfans.com recently. But nothing of substance.

For KSUck fans, it's the end. The site closing is not about the economy, it's about KSU having absolutely ZERO relevance in sports, period. The fact has been driven home to them clearly after the THuggins/Hill?Walker/Martin fiasco, the Prince debacle, KU"S ORange Bowl win and finally the KU National Championship.

Their basketball program, for which they sold their souls, is losing what few decent players they had and in most circles is a national joke. Their crying school President is a laughingstock, their AD left along with most of their football assistant coaches. There is nothing left for KSU, except for a Vista Burger and a couple of Ramey's. Great times in Manhattan!

I remember Saul saying YOU shouldn't go there, as they would pretty much own you. That part still stands. On any board.

It's too bad about that site. Fun place. A great free for all at times that allowed all points of view. Kinda like here, but KSU related.

Hope Saul can raise the $.

All of that plus his renig betting on the KSU - KU games he had, something about he was still moving. Last I knew , he was some type of moderator on phobia's fatchatter site.

Maybe one day he will grow up and find peace ? Maybe ?

Most KU fans feel that MU is our closest rival, this dates back to the Border War days. Many fans feel it is KSU, an instate rival thing, that has been quiet for many of years until recently, mostly due to one side dominating the other in sports for a period of time.

Some fans like myself seem to look at it as they are all rivals . But FTR, MU gets to me more than any other.

Now RR , you barely have a grasp of basic grammar and you wouldn't stand a chance on that BB. You don't have any kind of game at all.

You and Hawkchief should stay close to the apron strings of the mods at phognet where you can be protected.

Now you keep running the "would of's and could of's" that show what an Oklahoma turd you are.

Run along now.
