    We still love you too, big guy.


  • K-State looks to have high expectations going into next season per the KSU SID:
    The Wildcats, who return four starters and 10 lettermen from 2008-09, received rankings in both The Sporting News (23rd) and Rivals.com (24th) early 2009-10 Top 25 polls, while the squad was one of "Ten More to Watch" by CBSSports.com. The team posted both its third consecutive 20-win season and postseason appearance in 2008-09. K-State advanced to the second round of the NIT, where they lost to top-seeded San Diego State, to conclude the year with a 22-12 overall record and a 9-7 mark in Big 12 play.

  • This was in the Manhattan Mercury on Sunday, but for those who haven't read it yet, highly touted (and subsequently injured) JUCO linebacker, Josh Berard, is still working to fully recover from the knee injury he received during Spring Practice last year.

  • Overall, KSU Baseball is starting to get some respect nationally. The KSU SID was able to put this together to summarize where the 'Cats are right now. Congrats to Coach Hill and the Bat Cats!
    Kansas State, which is coming off a series victory over then-No. 15 Texas A&M, is ranked No. 21 by Baseball America, its highest ranking in school history, bettering the 2006 squad which was No. 24 according to Collegiate Baseball on March 20 of that season. K-State was one of four teams to move into the rankings this week.

    The publication also recognized junior starting pitcher A.J. Morris as a Midseason All-American as the Humble, Texas, product was one of 16 players in the nation to earn the honor. Morris was also one of just four starting pitchers in the nation to make the team, while he was one of three individuals from the Big 12 on the team.

    Kansas State also moved into the national rankings in two other polls as the Cats checked in at No. 24 according to Rivals.com and is ranked No. 29 in the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Top 30. For the second-straight week, the Wildcats are receiving votes in the USA Today/ESPN Coaches’ Top 25.

  • Just when I said that you guys let me down, you come back strong. Kudos to you, K-State students:
    I just saw the KU sign on the highway, and somebody needs to get some purple paint on it real soon.
    To everyone who has heard the Stride gum wrappers are edible: We called them, and they’re not edible. But they are nontoxic, so if you feel the need to eat the wrapper, go ahead.
    I like-a play a-ping-a-pong, and I like-a the dancing music. And I like to take pictures of girls when they make on the toilet.
