K-State people feel so inferior to KU people. They embarrass themselves usually every basketball season and football season. It is getting worse now that the majority of people living in Manhattan are homosexuals.

It's funny, I view K-State like I do Central Missouri State, a second rate school. Of course, I view KU in much the same way. Not many hard sciences, or practical fields of studies. You can only learn so much about humanities before you realize you're 100k in debt and no applicable skillz with which to make money money money moooonaaaay.

K State is highly renowned in big money making industries of sales, manufacturing, sciences and research for Food & Fuels Ag, Animals, Engineering, Bio-medicines and DOE special classifications.

I've worked with so many "connected" people who couldn't find the restroom with a map, but they know someone who protects them. So all you college kids better get networking, or face the unemployment line.
