Kansas State fans are super thrilled that their team is coached by Bruce Weber, who is 95-61 in his fifth season in Manhattan. Weber is 408-217 in 19 seasons overall, with previous stops at Southern Illinois and Illinois.

Bill Self is 28-5 all-time vs K-State; including 27-5 while at Kansas.

KU is 192-93 vs K-State all-time, a winning percentage 67.4%. Additionally, KU has won 53 of the last 58 meetings vs K-State. So if we do the math and take out the last 23 years, that means KU was only 139-88 against K-State, a winning percentage of 61.2%. So yeah, I guess technically, the series was "basically even" back in the day.
