Kansas State Blogger Knows A Lot About Hating Kansas StateS

The Wichita Eagle hired a new writer to obsessively blog about Kansas State athletics. Unfortunately, some Wildcat fans have a problem with the fact that he's actually a Kansas grad. But at least he has experience badmouthing Manhattan!

Kellis Robinett was born in Texas, lives in Nebraska and went to school in Lawrence. So he's the perfect candidate to cover K-State, right? Well, Wildcat fans don't think so. Robinett put his first post on the Eagle's K-State blog and some of the diehards were less than thrilled.

Is this a joke Wichita Eagle? ....

Are you serious??? A UK grad??? Hard to believe that the people predicting the ultimate demise of the UK Star may be correct based upon decisions like this. Did the leadership (and I say this tongue-in-cheek) of the UK Star Sports/Wichita Eagle not understand that this decision could create issues leading to few subscriptions? I just got my renewal in the mail yesterday. Guess what Star? It's over. ...

This biased reporter has written blog posts for Jayhawk fan sites absolutely trashing the school, it's coaches, and their fans. It's sad that they forced J-Mart out just to replace him with a KU fan who I doubt will show any journalistic integrity or neutrality. I won't be reading this blog, or the KC Star ever again. Disgusting. ...

I would rather have no coverage of K-State than to have a hack like you do it. ...

Good heavens. You are the prick that predicted Montana State to win in Manhattan [Ed. Note: KSU won 69-10] defended racist comments from KU players and had a KU blog. Goodbye Eagle. Had a subscription for 30 years. This is the final straw. ...

I have been reading the Wichita Eagle for over 50 years and if you are still here monday, I WILL CANCEL THE PAPER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ...

This is a disgrace to Dr. Pepper imo. ...

Kellis, don't take this too personal, but it appears that you are an obviously ku biased hack.

Why would he take that personally? Anyway, the comments go on like that for awhile. Since everyone seems think that bloggers are all sarcastic assholes, perhaps this is the perfect hire. Many online fans are hypercritical of their favorite teams—if they aren't unabahsed homers—so maybe more hate is the answer. Who can better sympathize with a self-loathing Wildcat fan than an actual loathing Jayhawk?
