K-State Football

For his game-saving tackle on Miami's Jacory Harris, and seven other tackles against the Hurricanes, Tre Walker is your Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week.

Even at his age, Bill Snyder keeps 'em guessing. During this week, we'll take a look at a few of the things K-State is doing on offense these days.

Kevin Haskin ran into Mark Mangino on K-State's sideline at Sun Life Stadium on Saturday. Well, not literally "ran into him," that wouldn't have ended well, but you know what I mean.

News of A&M's official departure for the SEC prompted little commentary from Big 12 coaches.

College Football

Bill explores collapses, field position and playing keep-away in this week's Numerical.

Also from Bill, a look at what Texas A&M's schedule in the SEC might look like. If you haven't figured it out yet, you should be reading Bill regularly at the mothership, and following him on Twitter @SBN_BillC.

K-State Volleyball

Middle blocker Kaitlynn Pelger was honored as the Big 12's player of the week for the second straight week

The Wildcats have won eight matches in a row, including a sweep over Baylor to open the conference season. K-State tries to make it nine in a row tomorrow at Missouri.

Conference Realignment

Paging Governor Nixon, hello, Governor Nixon? Connecticut's governor calls the Big East a "fall back option" if the ACC doesn't work out. 

In at least one area, Texas A&M measures up well with its new colleagues in the SEC.

Rick Pitino has some thoughts on conference realignment. But he's a coach, not an AD or university president, so his goal of adding Temple to the Big East will have to be run up the flagpole.

That ACC is a real thief.

Texas A&M wants to keep playing Texas. Cue maniacal laughter.

If the Big 12 breaks up, Kansas City could (should) bring back the Big 8 holiday basketball tournament.

Other College Sports

AZ Central has an extensive investigatory series on the BCS. I haven't read this yet, but it looks interesting.

As shared by Anon last week, this week's cover story on The Atlantic looks at the shame of college sports. I finally read this late last week, and it's well worth the time.
