Riverside (Calif.) CC 3-star offensive lineman Dominique Robertson (6'5" 200) committed to K-State nine days ago. Eight days later, two days after taking a second visit to Lubbock (this one unofficial), he changed his mind, flipping to Texas Tech according to 247's Tech insider. Welp, guess we'll have to take it out on the basketball team tonight.

More on Reserve (La.)-East St. John defensive end Daren Williams, who flipped to the 'Cats from Tulane over the weekend, courtesy of SportsNOLA.

Mentioned late yesterday in comments: former Minnesota QB Phillip Nelson took an official to Rutgers over the weekend, but in an e-mail to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune Nelson's father revealed that Nelson is also considering K-State. Nelson would be a junior, but has not burned his redshirt yet so he'll still have two years of eligibility remaining.

Going back in time, Kellis Robinett has even more thoughts on the loss at Hilton, as well as player ratings.

Kelly McHugh at K-State Sports Extra says Marcus Foster is getting used to the spotlight.

Robinett says the 'Cats need to get back on track before their off-week next week.

The Big 12 season is a grind, and the Wildcats just have to fight through it, says Ken Corbitt at the Capital-Journal.

Bruce Weber has told the team this is a gut-check week, according to the Salina Journal's Arne Green (via the Garden City Telegram).

Finally, the Wildcats are once again unranked in either poll, as should surprise precisely nobody. At least the state's still rocking the house; the Shockers are fourth in the AP poll and third in the coaches' while Kansas is sixth in the AP and tied for seventh in the coaches' poll. And here's a surprise: forty percent of the top five are mid-majors, as San Diego State has made the leap.

The most important poll in college baseball has finally coughed up its preseason rankings, and the Batcats have garnered their highest preseason ranking in history as they check in at #22. Texas and TCU join the Wildcats at #18 and #19.
