Nelson Rising: With the NFL Draft looming this weekend, we are hearing whispers that Jordy Nelson could possibly be taken late in the first round. Well, OK, so those whispers are coming from his agent, who has a vested interest in seeing Nelson selected highly, but there may be fire with that smoke. Nelson apparently had dinner recently with the owner and head coach of the Washington Redskins, who have the No. 21 overall pick.
K-Stated: More great recruiting information from J-Mart.
From the "wish I were they" category: The Big 12 men's golf championship is underway from Whispering Pines in Trinity, Texas. You can follow the men's results online with GolfStat. As of this writing, K-State is on holes 2-5 and stands tied for first at level par. Very early, obviously, but a good start.
You can also follow the women's Big 12 championship at this GolfStat link. The women are on holes 1-5 right now and stand +6. I'll try to provide updates throughout the day in the comments.
That's it for today's news. Check back later for conference golf updates in the comments and a weekend baseball live thread.
