K-State Football

K-State had its turn yesterday at Big 12 Media Days. Quarterback Collin Klein made an appearance on the way to his honeymoon after marrying former K-State women's basketball player Shalin Spani last weekend.

K-State's representatives towed the company line that they're not peeved at being picked sixth in the preseason media poll. Of course, that doesn't mean they're not ready to prove everyone wrong again.

Bill Snyder did a pretty good job of dodging the inevitable Penn State question. It would have been public-relations malpractice if the athletic department hadn't prepared him for that after Gary Pinkel's fiasco last week.

Kellis Robinett has a Q&A with special teams coach Sean Snyder, as well as a summary of Bill Snyder's comments.

New commissioner Bob Bowlsby says expansion is not in the Big 12's plans.

The Big 12 and ESPN are still working on the details of their new TV deal.

NCAA Punishes Penn State

The NCAA announced its sanctions against Penn State yesterday. They include a $60 million fine to endow programs to prevent child sexual abuse, a four-year postseason ban, scholarship reductions (10 fewer initial scholarships for the next four years, and a maximum of 65 scholarships per year for the next four years), and all wins since 1998 will be vacated.

Though some doubt the severity of Penn State's punishment, Scipio believes the death penalty would have been a kindness. This is the best post I read yesterday in the aftermath of the NCAA's announcement.

SB Nation's Bud Elliott examines the recruiting impact of Penn State's sanctions.

Spencer Hall hates the Penn State sanctions as a hollow gesture by a corrupt organization that accomplishes nothing.
