K-State Slate: 6.18.12

U.S. Open Golf

Former K-State golfer Aaron Watkins finished with a one-over-par 71 to post a six-over-par total 286, which was good for a tie for 15th. It didn't receive much attention, but Watkins finished ahead of tournament darling and Texas recruit Beau Hossler, much to the delight of Fake Dan Beebe.

Webb Simpson won the tournament, then had his trophy ceremony interrupted by some British loon making bird noises.

K-State Football

Dr. Saturday has now picked up the Manase Foketi situation, and it's probably only a matter of time before the mainstream outlets do, too. Again, I think we should probably just let him go, but I don't think K-State's end game is forcing him to play in Manhattan this year, as Graham Watson implies in the article. It's not that K-State is going to force him to actually stay and play in Manhattan. K-State can deny his release, and he can leave and play lower-division ball somewhere closer to home if he wants. This story is still murky enough, and the information is coming from only one side, that it's still not entirely clear exactly what's going on.

K-State Basketball

Bruce Weber landed a commitment from three-star Indiana forward Alex Etherington, who was basically paralyzed during his sophomore season.

Colorado is a sensitive place

Colorado linebacker John Majors tweeted that he cries when he hears "Someone Like You" by Adele. That probably explains quite a bit about the Buffaloes' struggles the last few years.
