More Piping Hot Takes

How is he supposed to know for sure? When Gundy has found ways to consistently be 3rd and 4th eventually you start believing that’s about where he’s going to get to or maintain in the future. There were no recent reasons to believe he would exceed otherwise.

Well let me rephrase that. Do you believe any other coach besides Gundy is content with 4th place?

So he’s excellent because he waited till the season was nearly over to try and call people out? Don’t remember seeing him on here much making any kind of prediction. That’s pretty easy to do if you think about it.

I did tell you all to quit overreacting to one or two games. I don’t sit here and talk out of my butt when I have limited information.

So based off the first two games did you even think this team would get 4th in the conference or better?

Now I’m going to have to like… embarrass you.

Missouri State

Here’s you flipping our lid and saying this team is going to be one of the worst Gundy teams ever…

Here’s more of your Willie Fritz talk. Oh boy. He’s still 0-fer in his baby conference right?

Hehe… Tulane is a “good” G5 team. Oh man.

We probably didn’t call you stupid enough… you really wanted this awful Tulane coach. I am glad you’re just some mom’s-basement-dweller and not our AD.

ar1 and Logan believed you. They were wrong, but they believed you. Also, everyone did get on and defend Gundy.

So, after all of those histrionics, here’s what I said about it. And you know what? I was right on the money. I forgot Sanders was out that game. Geeze, man. Week one without QB1. Why you overreact?

Did Bob Simmons have a top 5 defense in the nation? Asking for a friend.

I won’t go into all this like weird “Gundy wasn’t emotional enough” crap that Logan was spouting off about. Like he wanted Gundy to throw a chair or cry or something. You know which coaches are cool, calm and collected in the Big XII? The two that are probably going to go to the conference championship game: Gundy and Aranda.

Here are some more of my level-headed and reasonable takes. Like this one after Tulsa. I might be too harsh on Dunn. I still don’t know about him. Obviously the offense isn’t a strength, but it’s certainly gotten better after we got healthier. My bad, Dunn. You deserve some more time:

I’m very positive about Warren and BOY HOWDY, was that right. I’m down on Sanders, but still hopeful that he can turn it around. I said he needed to figure stuff out, and I think he has. He hasn’t made terrible mistakes lately.

I wasn’t “off” of Sanders, though…

See how I have this completely rational, “wait and see” approach and actually wait for information before I start throwing out bad hot takes and not disregarding the whole body of work Gundy has put together developing talent? Here’s another example of me weighing possibilities and looking for more data when you were on the “GUNDY HAS FAILED AT DEVELOPING A QB!”

So, if you really want to go back and look at what I’ve said, I’m always:

1.) Not panicking.
2.) Looking for more information before forming an kneejerk opinion.
3.) Weighing extenuating circumstances like injuries.

So, yes, I didn’t rule out the fact that we could finish higher than 4th because not only did I not know how good we were or if some of our issues were fixable, but I didn’t know how good the rest of the league was.


What I want to know is how Kansas can score 57 against Texas and we struggle to score over 30 against them?

Game complexion is different. Texas is in a downward spiral now. They were feeling more competitive earlier in the season.

That’s not a good enough excuse there Jake. Texas is still trying to get to a bowl game. I watch an OSU team have to climb back from a double digit deficit against a team that just let a 1-8 Kansas team maintain a lead against them the entire game and put up 57.

OK, so other than Texas’s spirit being broken, our offense has been getting healthier as the season progresses. LD is still out and one or two receivers, but we’re as close to full strength as we’re going to get… Sanders and Dunn are getting more confidence in themselves and each other. We’re building chemistry.

I’m just following what Gundy said. He said you gotta give a QB 15 games. Sanders had already been past that mark.

Oh my this is pure gold. And all joe can manage to ask is how Kansas scored 50 on Texas?

Your reaching for your narrative about Gundy to be right joe. Just admit you don’t like him in general it’s okay.

Hate is a very strong word Yo. I prefer to say I dislike some of his philosophies on some things, but I don’t ALWAYS think he’s wrong. What I can agree with him on is that we need to do a better job of being former players back, and making more statues and having more players inducted.

That’s what big time programs do and it’s a step in the right direction. It also creates appeal when higher caliber recruits visit campus. I personally would like to see a statue of Justin Blackmon considering he’s only one of two college football receivers to win the Biletnikoff twice.

I never said hate there. And like I’ve said before if you’d just admit you don’t like him in general everything else makes a lot more sense

Higher caliber recruits. Funny u dnt talk about how are recruiting keeps getting better.
I’ve told u why r offense didn’t do better early. Young players not executing. Now we have had the players back gained experience they are executing. Less flags. Players are were they are suppose to be. Better blocking by receivers. We have had only 4 ( out of 11 spots) players play all 10 games.

Another one of Joey’s hot takes is gundy is not emotional.
I’m a man.
Go ask any big 12 ref if he is not emotional. Gundy is amazing how fast he can see a penalty thar wasn’t called and on the refs ess.
Ask herman how emotional he is we he went to get his players to back off.
I guess u can only be emotional if u eat grass.

You changed your post is what you did.

Um no
