K-State Football

Head wizard Bill Snyder is working his magic to figure out the new college football kickoff rules. This year, kickoffs will be from the 35-yard line, and touchbacks on free kicks will be brought out to the 25-yard line.

Over at Barking Carnival, Nickel Rover has an excellent look back at one of K-State's biggest wins last season. Along the way, he analyzes the comparison between Collin Klein and Robert Griffin III, and what it means for both teams this season.

We know K-State will be able to run the ball this season. With that knowledge, the Wildcats are working this spring to diversify the offense.

K-State has produced at least one NFL Draft pick for the last 18 years. The streak could be in jeopardy this year, but David Garrett and Tysyn Hartman have a chance to keep it going.

K-State Baseball

I think we can go ahead and write off this baseball season. K-State struggled through the first half of its conference schedule this year, but with an easier second half there was hope of moving up. But after suffering a sweep against Missouri this weekend, the Bat Cats are now tied with Texas Tech for dead last in the Big 12. With series against Tech and eighth-place KU (one game ahead), K-State still has a chance to qualify for the Big 12 Tournament this season.

The SEC is just hard on marriages

Gary Pinkel and his wife have separated. The two have been together since they were in college at Kent State.
