K-State Slate: 1.10.12

K-State Basketball

Frank Martin talked about the importance of keeping his team's emotions in check to avoid the roller coaster that leads to losses.

That will be necessary this week because, after a big win over Missouri on Saturday, K-State welcomes another top-10 team to the Octagon of Doom tonight when Baylor comes to Manhattan.

K-State moved up to No. 18 in both college basketball polls after splitting with KU and Missouri last week.

SB Nation's Bracketology pegs K-State as a four seed, in a grouping that I would take right now and run with. First-round game against Harvard, with only the winner of Vanderbilt/BYU between K-State and a Sweet 16? Yes, please.

K-State Football

Tyler Lockett and B.J. Finney are freshman all-Americans according to FWAA, making K-State the only school other than USC to have two players on the freshman team.

This isn't K-State specific, but I'll go so far as to say it's required reading for all college football fans. As tempting as it may be, don't get involved with recruits on social media. Leave the recruiting to the coaching staff.

Big 12 Basketball

Oklahoma State knocked off Oklahoma last night in Bedlam on Big Monday.
