Not a lot happening in K-Stateland today, so I'll take the time to bring your attention to the 2007 College Football Blogger Awards. It's exactly what it sounds like: awards for the best college football blogs on the internets. Last year was the first year, and I'm excited to be participating for the first time this year.
For more information, head over to this post at Rocky Top Talk, or this one at Every Day Should Be Saturday. Once you have a good idea what's going on, here is a link to the Nomination GIZMO, where you can go to nominate who you think should win in each category.
Let me say once again, thanks for reading Bring On The Cats. I've enjoyed authoring this blog, and look forward to more interaction with all of you this coming year.
I forgot to mention this news yesterday in the post-game reaction post. David Hoskins is going to have season-ending knee surgery in Chicago sometime in the near future. In the article, he says he wants to come back next year if the NCAA will grant him a medical redshirt. Let's hope the NCAA comes through for Hoskins; he deserves it.
Somehow I missed this story in the KC Star the other day, and that's a shame because it is a good one. It goes into the story of Darren Sproles and his father, tracing his steps from Olathe North to K-State to San Diego. Players like Darren Sproles make me proud to be a K-State fan; endured his mother's death while he was in college with dignity, honored her wish to stick around and get his degree, and got his degree in speech pathology, a useful major for someone who has dealt with a speech impediment like Sproles has. Well done, Tank.
Finally, last week for some reason KC Star columnist Blair Kerkhoff noticed that the three remaining undefeateds in college basketball (KU, Memphis and North Carolina) were also "big on barbecue." Undoubtedly Memphis and NC are famous for their barbecue, but let's not go giving the 'beakers credit for something they can't claim. We all know Kansas City barbecue is the best in the galaxy, but those wannabe hippies in Lawrence don't have anything to do with it. I doubt most of them even eat meat.
