K-State Slate: 12.17.13

The most important toe in Ann Arbor. - Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Finals doldrums continue, but Jon soldiers on.

Previously on BotC: Well, not on BotC, but on the mothership. Your benevolent despot was part of the voting panel on SB Nation's 2013 All-America Team, and it's very very pretty even though there's no Wildcats on it.

Football:

At 11am, something truly amazing will happen: I'll be posting a recruiting story. Look for it. (I know. It's weird.)

Meanwhile, in Ann Arbor, Brady Hoke says that Devin Gardner will probably start practicing later in the week -- but is still vacillating over whether Gardner will actually be able to play in the bowl game.

Cowboys Ride for Free did something... pretty to break down the BWW Bowl. I need to figure out how to embed that...

Crimson & Cream Machine picked their all-Big 12 team and somehow managed to not find a place for Ryan Mueller at all, largely because they just selected team lines rather than individual players. They did pick Tyler Lockett and Ty Zimmerman though.

Basketball:

Prepping for a busy week of finals and practice, the team feels optimistic that things are legitimately improving.

Baseball:

The BatCats announced their 2014 schedule, which begins with a three-game series at Cal Poly-SLO starting on February 14. K-State will play eight game in ten days out on the left coast, including their first-ever meetings with Saint Mary's (twice), San Francisco, and Cal-Davis and a single game at Saint Mary's with Portland. The home opener will be on February 28 as the Cats start a three-game series against Wisconsin-Milwaukee, current employer of Andy Geiger. (Hiss.) Other non-conference foes in 2014 will include Nebraska, Iowa, Nebraska-Omaha, Air Force, Northern Colorado, Creighton, Wichita State, and Cal-Bakersfield.

Other:

Kansas congressional reps are now arguing over whether the NBAF funding is actually part of the budget deal or not. Whatever, just give K-State some money.

National:

Chip Kelly's handwaving Texas reports ... David Shaw is absolutely not interested in, oh, the NFL? So you mean there's a chance? ... Teddy Bridgewater might return next year, or he might not ... Gus Malzahn won the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award ... BBracketology's up, and K-State's not in it.
