Bring on the PodCats with Ryan Black

Despite some signs of progress, Bruce Weber’s status as the coach at Kansas State continues to be a hot topic of debate. The Manhattan Mercury’s Ryan Black joined us to look at both sides.

NCAA Basketball: Kansas State at Texas
Will this guy be back next season? At least we can all agree we should never see that face shield again.

There are at least four basketball games remaining this season and yes, I suppose we did spend a decent amount of time talking about them as well as K-State’s recent progress in this podcast recorded *before* Wednesday’s disaster vs. Kansas. Mostly, though, this extra-long conversation with The Manhattan Mercury’s Ryan Black focused on what everyone wants to know right now: Should Bruce Weber be gone after this season?

Ryan hasn’t been shy about asking Gene Taylor whether Bruce will be retained (Gene has said yes three times) so we figured he would be the best guy to help us break down a crucial decision. First, we discuss the very real and sometimes overlooked accomplishments that could be used as evidence to let Bruce try to turn things around (again) before ending the podcast by spelling out the very legitimate reasons many Kansas State fans believe it’s time to bring in a new coach.

You can read Ryan’s work on The Manhattan Mercury’s website and follow him on Twitter @RyanABlack.
