Open Game Thread: Kansas State vs. Georgia

Tune in for what should be a foul-fest as these teams fight like Cats and Dawgs.

We're ALL screaming.

Georgia (7-3, 0-0 SEC) at Kansas State (7-5, 0-0 Big 12)

After five non-conference losses, K-State is likely ready to send 2014 to the dustbin of history. But before ringing in the new year, the Wildcats face the Georgia Bulldogs in a rare major-conference non-conference matchup at Bramlage Coliseum.

Don't expect a beautiful, free-flowing game. As BigE noted in his preview, both Georgia and K-State draw a ton of fouls, and K-State in particular fouls a lot on defense.

K-State needs this game badly, as its margin of error for making the NCAA Tournament is razor thin. This team's problems are of the fixable variety, but fixing a broken mindset is only marginally more doable than fixing a talent deficiency.

In any event, there's always the chance that the light will flicker on and stay on. Maybe it will happen on the last day of the year.

Go Cats!
