K-State Slate: 7.11.14 - Alumni set new record for giving

Scott Sewell-USA TODAY Sports

Just a few links today for your Friday perusal...

Moving on with the BracketCat countdown, we're now at #51, LB David Smith. That's right, we're less than two months from FOOTBAW.

Also, Tarkman tries to make sense of the second half of the K-State baseball season.

As reported yesterday by Derek Smith, three more K-State players are on FWAA awards watch lists. BJ Finney and Cody Whitehair are both listed for the Outland Trophy, an award for the nation's best interior lineman, while Ryan Mueller was named to the watch list for the Bronko Nagurski award, given to the nation's top defensive player. Mueller is already on watch lists for the Bednarik award and the Lott IMPACT Trophy.

The KC Star covers the story here, and the conference site notes that the Big 12 is well-represented on the Nagurski watch list, with 13 players.

Here, have some stat predictions for every starting quarterback in the Big 12.

The big news out of Manhattan today is that the Ahearn Fund has hit an all-time record high, with $46.4 million in donations to K-State athletics, an increase of 21% over last year.  The Fund has also received 21 private donations in excess of $1 million each.

The Leavenworth Times features a short piece on Bill Snyder. I am linking this solely for its mention of K-State's total domination of KU.

Jason Kirk takes a less-than-serious look at the rivalries lost to realignment.

Lindsey Holden, a former track athlete at DePaul, summarizes the recent Senate committee hearing on the NCAA, in where former athletes Myron Rolle (Florida State) and Devon Ramsay (North Carolina) both testified.

Finally, Big 12 schools are unanimous in not supporting 4-year scholarships, but they're hardly alone, as most schools in the ACC and some in the SEC and the Pac-12 are not interested either. On the other hand, the B1G schools were nearly unanimous in support, with only Maryland and Rutgers voting against the idea.

Happy weekend!
