K-State Slate: 3.28.14

Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

Today's Slate comes to you from the wilds of the Pacific Northwest, home of constant rain and inconstant internet access. Lucky it's such a slow news day, eh?

Fresh off the blowout win over the Huskers, the BatCats head up to Nebraska this weekend to take on Creighton (Emily DeShazer, K-State Collegian). This is part of a four-game road stand for K-State. Levi MaVorhis gets the start.

Andrew Sharp at Grantland takes a look back at the 2010 Kansas State-Xavier classic Sweet Sixteen game.

It's hard to even look at the NCAA brackets when your team has been eliminated (Kevin Haskin, Topeka Capital-Journal).

The K-State rowing team will try to make it four in a row in the Sunflower Showdown, when they row it out for the Kansas Cup this weekend.

The big news in college football is that the Chicago district of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruled that football players at Northwestern were employees of the university and were therefore entitled to form a union. Predictably, there has been some handwringing over this, as well as some premature dancing on college football's grave. As always, the mothership has your back and parses out the decision.

As this news broke yesterday, I suspect it has already been discussed ad nauseum on yesterday's Slate. But dead horse puree is a popular beverage on slow news days, yes?

In a somewhat related news tidbit, Dennis Dodd talks to K-State president Kirk Schulz about the NCAA steering committee and its role in a swiftly changing world.

KU is set to lower student fees that support non-revenue sports, and will lose about $340,000 in net revenue as a result. Could a similar reduction be next at K-State?
