Thanks to Anon for handling the Slate yesterday.

Erik Kynard is an Olympian

Erik Kynard wore his purple K-State track uniform at the U.S. Olympic Trials. Next time we see him compete, he'll be wearing red, white and blue. Kynard cleared 7'5-3/4" at Heyward Field in Eugene, Ore., to qualify for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, England. All three Olympic qualifiers -- Kynard, Jamie Nieto, and Jesse Williams -- are coached by K-State's Cliff Rovelto. High Jump U, indeed.

College Football Playoff

What would have been so bad about a plus-one system? Jason Kirk takes a look.

The Big 12 and the SEC wanted to gut the Rose Bowl and have the college football playoff games outside the bowl system. But just as the Big 10 apparently compromised on the conference-champions-only requirement, the two conference accepted a system using the bowls for the semifinals.

Bizarro Baylor World

Former Baylor basketball player Richard Hurd has been arrested and charged with extortion. Hurd's apparent target was Robert Griffin III.

Jerry Sandusky: Guilty

Late Friday night, the jury in the Jerry Sandusky trial returned its verdict finding Sandusky guilty on 45 of the 48 charges against him. Sandusky's bail was revoked and he was taken to jail. Sandusky could face a 442-year sentence for his crimes, but at age 68 it doesn't really matter. He will spend the rest of his life in prison.
