Life is mostly about timing. Think too long about asking someone out, and there's a good chance someone else will already be dating them. That's exactly what happened to Kansas State.

Last night Oklahoma State announced the hiring of Brad Underwood to their head coaching position. With that announcement Oklahoma State effectively ended any speculation of Brad Underwood returning to Kansas State once Bruce Weber is gone. John Currie and the rest of the Kansas State administration thought too long (or, as Eric Rubottom said last night on twitter, they didn't think at all) about asking Brad Underwood out, and when the time comes that they are ready to ask, the likely answer from Brad will be "Sorry, you should have asked earlier, I'm already going to the dance with Oklahoma State".

One of our favorite K-State beat writer's also broke down the hiring, saying Kansas State fans are "sure to have mixed reactions". I'm not sure about mixed reactions, since almost every single reaction I've seen is of the anger and burn it down type. (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle)
