K-State Slate: 12.5.11


I know last night was frustrating, but did K-State have one helluva a weekend, or what? The volleyball team advanced to the Sweet 16 by beating Nebraska, in Lincoln. As one of Missouri's bloggers put it, that would have been an impressive win even if the game had been played in Kite's and K-State would have had two extra players on the floor. Then the football team beat Iowa State to finish 10-2 and the women's basketball team beat Iowa in overtime. Finally, the men's basketball team got a road win over what looks like a solid Virginia Tech team on Sunday. Not bad.

K-State Football

K-State gutted out a 30-23 win over Iowa State after a 90-minute weather delay in Manhattan. The weather delay, for a December 3rd game, was due to lightning.

Raphael Guidry dedicated his senior day performance to his late father, and then went out on the field and delivered a performance to be proud of. The senior blocked an ISU extra point and intercepted a tipped pass before leaving the game with an injury in the second half.

The Wildcats will travel to Dallas and face Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl on January 6, 2012.

The Cotton Bowl is already sold out, and is one of the most expensive bowl tickets.

Stewart Mandel takes the Sugar Bowl to task for picking Virginia Tech over K-State.

While the BCS snub is a disappointment, the Cotton Bowl rivals the Sugar Bowl for history and tradition. And we have a great opportunity to prove the Big 12 belongs as the top conference in the country with a matchup against a very good Arkansas team.

K-State Volleyball

K-State pulled of one of the biggest upsets in NCAA Tournament history when it knocked off No. 2 Nebraska at the Nebraska Coliseum in Lincoln, Neb. The Wildcats now travel to Honolulu, Hawai'i, to face Pepperdine in the Sweet 16.

K-State Men's Basketball

Jamar Samuels led K-State in points (17) and rebounds (14) and helped propel the Wildcats to a 69-61 win over Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va.

K-State Women's Basketball

The Wildcats needed overtime to notch an 81-78 win over the Iowa Hawkeyes on Saturday evening at Bramlage. Should we start chanting "We own Iowa"? Or maybe make some "Iowa State Champions" t-shirts?
