Click the jump for the weekend's K-State news and notes.

Track and Field

Scott Sellers is the national champion in high jump for the second time in three years.  Congrats, Scott!

Football

Bill Snyder apparently considered getting into politics after he retired in 2005 by running with former Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius'.  Snyder made this remark at a Catbacker function in Arkansas City, apparently in response to a question about what opportunities came up after he retired.  For some reason, this is a big deal to some people, even if they claim not to "give a shit."

Other Big 12 News

Texas A&M won national titles in both men's and women's track and field over the weekend.  Combine that with their national title in golf, and A&M is quickly becoming the new Baylor (dominant in non-revenue sports).

Texas won its first CWS game over Southern Miss by the skin of its teeth after USM walked in the game-winning run.  Apparently, the stars are not only big and bright deep in the heart of Texas, but they're also perfectly aligned for UT.
