K-State Slate: 4.14.14

Jamie Squire

It's just another manic Monday.

Baseball and a lot of non-revenue action from the weekend....

The BatCats dropped the last game 11-7 and were swept by Texas Tech 11-7 for the first time since 2004. The Wildcats lost 4-3 on Friday, and gave up an early lead to go down 7-4 on Saturday. In the last game, Tanner DeVinny's two-run homer in the fourth inning was the only real highlight for K-State. Now at 2-7 in the Big 12, a repeat as conference champions seems unlikely.

Here's the view from Lubbock.

New head coach and KC native Jeff Mittie feels right at home at K-State, and his family is looking forward to the move too.

Blair Kerkhoff reports on conference earnings as compared to ticket sales for the area schools. K-State is about even, but both KU and Mizzou made out like bandits, with conference revenue outstripping revenue from ticket sales for both football and basketball.

Athlon ranks the Big 12's coaches. No real surprises, although Bill Snyder has lost a bit of ground since 2012.

The CBS college football podcast (with Chip Patterson and Tom Fornelli) previews K-State and riffs on the Wildcats' chances to win the Big 12 in 2014.

Meanwhile, Manhattan's own Deante Burton is taking his game up a notch.

Linebackers' coach Mike Cox was inducted into the Idaho Athletic Hall of Fame on Saturday. Congratulations to Coach Cox who has done such stellar work with K-State's linebacking crew in the past few seasons.

A record 68 K-State rowers were named to the C-USA Academic Honor Roll. K-State also has 19 rowers on the Academic Medal list, which is for rowers carrying a 3.75 or higher GPA.

The K-State tennis team dropped their seventh straight contest, losing 6-1 to No. 34 Texas Tech (K-State head coach Liz Ullathorne's alma mater, incidentally). Freshman Livia Cirnu's singles win was the lone bright spot for the team, which has now dropped to 2-6 in conference play.

K-State turned in a solid performance at the Jim Click, with the men finishing second and the women coming in fourth in the team-scored event. Carlos Rodriguez finished first in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m events. Erica Twiss led the K-State women's charge with a first place finish in two heptathlon events (100m and long jump) and a second place finish in the women's 100m race.

The volleyball team finished unbeaten (3-0-1) in the spring tournament at Blue Valley West High School this weekend.

Governor Brownback will be visiting K-State to talk about increased funding for research in all the Regents schools.
