We are fortunate to have one of the best environments in college basketball in Bramlage Coliseum. This early sell-out of season tickets is a testament to the hard work of Coach Martin, his staff and our student-athletes as well as the loyalty and passion of K-State fans. We are proud K-State Basketball can continue to be accessible to all K-State fans with tickets still available and affordably priced for home games during the holiday break and the much anticipated match-up with UNLV December 21 at the Sprint Center in Kansas City.
The ultimate goal is to compete nationally, not just in the conference. Being in a high-profile league helps that, so does an increase in revenue. Texas and Oklahoma get more. That sucks. Mizzou gets more than in any other realistic scenario. That does not suck. The new TV deal will pay Missouri far more than it has ever gotten in media money reducing the gap between Mizzou and comparable schools in other leagues. That will help do things like pay for Mike Anderson (remember that kerfuffle?). The new deal is also going to put Missouri on TV more often. With ten schools in the league, there is less inventory to fill time slots. Also, with a nine-game conference schedule, there will be more games that people want to see. Also, it ought to help home attendance.
