In which K-State's NCAA Tournament hopes officially die a painful death while all of its other decent opponents continue to build their profiles.

Purdue won its Big Ten opener. That's quite literally the only positive thing that happened for us this week.

Everyone in the Big 12 won this week, save for the conference's worst team. I'd say get used to hearing that, but luckily conference play is upon us, so we should have three or four "misery loves company" buddies each week.

Long Beach State keeps losing road games to ranked teams, Texas Southern really capitalized on that big win in Bramlage with a loss in Las Cruces and the teams K-State's actually beat are atrocious, except A&M and Purdue.

I'll keep doing these posts for the morbidly curious, but don't expect future write-ups to be too detailed unless something changes rapidly. The numbers speak for themselves and I'm quickly losing interest in this season.
