K-State Slate: 10.02.13

Tyler Lockett's all the rage this week, we hear from Joe Bob Clements, and we get ready to say goodbye to DeLoss Dodds.

Remember, he's a Riley boy at heart.

A programming note: we won't have a Q&A with any Oklahoma State folks this week, as things just didn't come together. It happens sometimes. I mean, I suppose I could have talked to my next door neighbor, but that would have required leaving my mother's basement, right?

Lots of stuff today, so let's get right to it, shall we?


Bill Snyder asked the entire team what they could do to get better, and the first person he asked was Tyler Lockett -- who was coming off the best game of his career. Tyler, of course, has something to prove to Oklahoma State.

Meanwhile, the Cats try to prepare for an angry Cowboy squad, while Snyder is busy trying to fix everything.

It was hard for Joe Bob Clements to tell Snyder he was moving to Stillwater, and he still considers Manhattan "home".

Women's basketball:

Nikki Ohlde has come home again. After retiring from pro ball, she's now an assistant at Clay Center, her alma mater.


The ladies prepare to take on the Chickenhawks. Remember, be there.


The women finish seventh out of 11 teams at the Texas State-hosted Challenge at Onion Creek in Austin, while the men faltered in the final round at home, finishing second to Sam Houston State in the Jim Colbert Intercollegiate.

Other stuff:

A couple of stories on DeLoss Dodds from a local perspective: one from Blair Kerkhoff, the other an AP wire story. Both touch on Dodds' career at K-State, which we should remember included navigating the school out of some pretty serious NCAA sanctions in the late seventies.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is throwing some spikes in the road on the process of opening the NBAF, demanding the federal government outline its plan to clean up Plum Island before they sell it.

And finally, rejoice: your odds of hitting a deer on the road in Kansas have dropped 11.3 percent!
