Last night, the buttoned-up, well-run, strong-leadered SEC accidentally posted a story on its Web site announcing Missouri as the league's 14th member, before the story was predictably pulled about 30 minutes later. Oddly, the story was dated last Saturday, and referred to an announcement by Mike Slive on Monday. Of course, it's probably an elaborate hoax by a K-State fan, probably from BOTC, who is butthurt about Missouri leaving.
Check out Curtis Kitchen's Big 12 rankings. K-State checks in at No. 3.
It only took six or seven wins, but K-State's stock is climbing among the oddsmakers and pollsters. Love the infographic with this story.
In these troubled times, K-State's hot start is good for the Big 12. Did you hear that Oklahoma? DON'T MESS UP A GOOD THING.

Predictably, K-State issued a "no comment" statement yesterday in response to the Beasley situation.
