K-State Football

K-State lost to Arkansas, 29-16, in the Cotton Bowl on Friday night.

One of the game's turning points was Joe Adams' punt return for a touchdown in the second quarter. I'll be charitable and say that there was at least one block on the play that was highly questionable.

K-State rallied back after Raphael Guidry blocked the Arkansas extra point and Nigel Malone returned it for a two-point conversion.

K-State was almost unrecognizable in the first half, committing three games worth of mistakes to dig an early hole.

The Wildcats' breakthrough season may have ended on a sour note, but with a lot of important pieces returning for next season, K-State has momentum to build on.

K-State Basketball

After an embarrassing loss against KU on Wednesday, K-State bounced back and routed previously undefeated Missouri in Manhattan on Saturday, 75-59.

The Wildcats' toughness disrupted Missouri's previously smooth, efficient offense.

Frank Martin inserted Jordan Henriquez in the starting lineup for Thomas Gipson, and JO's length bothered Ricardo Ratliffe, who was wholly ineffective for Missouri.

K-State's swarming defense left an impression on Missouri. I love this exchange between Marcus Denmon and Frank after the game:

"He told me after the game, ‘See you in Columbia,’" Martin said, adding that he and Denmon have a good-natured relationship that dates back to when K-State recruited the guard from Kansas City, Mo. "I said, ‘We’ll be there.’"

Big 12 Basketball

KU rolled over Oklahoma in Norman ... Baylor handled Texas Tech in Lubbock (and by the way, that 36-0 streak they're talking about began after Baylor's loss to K-State at the end of October. Oh, how I would love for K-State to bookend that thing on Tuesday) ... Texas A&M is in freefall after a 24-point loss to surging Iowa State in Ames College Station... and Texas picked up a tough win over Oklahoma State.

The Wildcats continued their domination of KU with a 63-57 win in Lawrence.
