K-State Slate, 4/15/08

Believe it or not, there is news other than Michael Beasley's decision yesterday, so let's get to it.

Bill Walker testing also: At Beasley's press conference yesterday, Frank Martin announced that Bill Walker is also going to test the NBA draft, although he will not hire an agent.  While I'm far from an expert in this area, this seems to be the right move for Walker.  He is projected by some as an early second-round pick, and could improve his stock in draft workouts.  On the other hand, he may find he's not going to go as high as he would like, and thus keeping the agents away is probably a very good decision.

Deep Sadness: BOTC sends its best to the family and friends of K-State student Josh Walker, who was killed in a fall on campus at the Jardine Apartment Complex.  Jardine is the married housing complex on campus, for those who don't know, and apparently the 19-year-old Walker was visiting friends there.

"It's not somebody else's disease": The K-State women's basketball team participated in K-State's Relay for Life last weekend, and raised more than $2,000 for breast cancer research.

All the more reason to be proud of the women's basketball team.  Well done, ladies!

Royals Rain on Seattle: Zack Greinke absolutely killed the Mariners last night, leading KC to a 5-1 win.  The Royals are currently 8-5 and lead the AL Central by a half-game.  And yes, I realize it's only Tax Day, but I still love it.

Around the Blogosphere:

Corn Nation: Bo Pelini is going to choose sides for the Nebraska spring game this Saturday, rather than match up 1s vs. 2s.  I've never heard of that idea before.

Crimson and Cream Machine: A mobile post from the OU spring game.  Similar to my mobile post from the Big 12 tournament last month.

A Sea of Blue: Rumors that Billy Gillispie may be interested in the Oklahoma State job just won't die a natural death.  This one would surprise me. (h/t: Double T Nation)

Arrowhead Pride: Will we be hearing the following phrase?

"With the thirty-fifth pick, in the 2008 NFL draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select Jordy Nelson, wide receiver from Kansas State University."

OK, probably not, but we can all dream a little, can't we?
