Given the ubiquitous criticism he's faced, the headline is appropriate for this one.

two-way player at K-State?  Hell, if any of our running backs can play linebacker, why not give it a shot?

Surprisingly, given that there's a football game tomorrow, that's about it for the football links.  Oh yeah, that might have something to do with Big 12 basketball's media day yesterday.

Get used to this storyline.  As the preseason favorite, K-State now has the target on its back, rather than being the team gunning for the target on others.

The beard is back, baby.  Fear the Beard.

Newcomer Freddy Asprilla dropped an astounding amount of weight during the offseason.  If Asprilla is all he's cracked up to be on the front line with Curtis Kelly, Jamar Samuels and Wally Judge, the Wildcats could have a fearsome frontcourt this season.
