All the K-State news that's fit to print on this fine Tuesday morning.

Someone forgot the sign that says "despair".

At least today you'll actually get to see my version of the Slate. You see, a certain party complained that the Slate wasn't up yet, and as a result the bossman and I both did it. But he beat me by five minutes, so he won. That means I lost. I'm a loser. Poo.

The communication problems are now sorted out, though, and that means you get me today. Won't that be fun? Let's get right to it, shall we?

Football:

Robinett takes a look back at Saturday's fiasco, as does Sean Frye at the Collegian.

The Salina Journal's Arne Green talks about the two-QB setup and how it needs work. Ya think?

And while things aren't rosy in Manhattan, imagine if we were in Morgantown. Ralph Russo checks in on the Misery in the Mountains.

Basketball:

Nothing going on at Bramlage, but down in Wichita it seems Gregg Marshall got himself a raise. About a 66% raise, ultimately.

Baseball:

Jenks (OK) right-hander Bryce Ward will be attending the U18 Team USA trials, and struck out over 10 batters per nine innings last year while leading Jenks to the Oklahoma 6A tournament. Oh, yeah, he also just committed to K-State.

Volleyball:

One last tuneup before Big 12 play starts. The Lady Cats will take on the Italian U-23 national team tonight at Ahearn before heading off to Morgantown for a Friday clash.

GAWWF:

After yesterday's 36 holes at Colbert Hills, the ladies are in second place in the Marilyn Smith/Sunflower Invitational, 13 strokes back of the hated Chickenhawks. Gianna Misenhelter is at two-over for the tournament, tied for the individual lead with KU's Yupaporn Kawinpakom. The final 18 starts this morning at 7:15, so if you're up and around go say goodbye to Gianna.

The men are also in action, taking part in the Saint Mary's Invitational out at Bayonet and Blackhorse Golf Club in Seaside CA. Things are not going so well for them, however. The team is tied for 17th after the opening 36, a whopping 44 strokes behind tournament leaders and #1 ranked California. Senior Daniel Wood is 7-over par, tied for 41st 11 strokes back of co-leaders Michael Weaver (Cal) and Grant Forrest (U. of San Diego).
