Ever wanted to see Big 12/Kansas State porn?

SI covers? Better than the SEC in football? The past week or so would have Larry Flynt blushing, or smiling, or something else creepy.

It's not often, when you stop and really think about it,that a touted recruit arrives on campus and not only meets but beats every expectation, let alone when it's just a three-star something.

- Then again, this is the Kansas State Wildcats we're talking about -- where walk-ons, two-stars and three-stars giving five-star effort is as regular as the revolving head coaching door at Kansas.

- Still, when you have the kind of stellar career that can be summed up by your name ...

- Tyler Lockett.

- Completing the receiving records sweep within days of that Jordy Nelson character gracing the Sports Illustrated cover and being called the "most dangerous deep threat" in the NFL.

- And then ESPN concedes tells us that the Big 12 has unseated the SEC as the best football conference.

- If Larry Flynt directed a movie full of Hugh Hefner's best talent acting out a Danielle Steel script, it wouldn't be as hot as this past week has been for K-State and the Big 12.

- Baylor said last week that it has directed a PR firm to help make its case for being a part of the College Football Playoff.

- The money and effort is being spent pitching the Bears to national media, not the College Football Playoff Committee.

- That's so ... not quite right.

- And thus, so ... Baylor.

- And, with Tuesday night's rankings release showing the Bears still ranked No. 6 ... yep, seems things are working about as well as one would expect this type of effort would.

- Makes my head hurt.

- What am I missing with Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty's noggin?

- He left last Saturday's game with a mild concussion.

- Both he and his head coach are already saying it's not a question whether he'll play against K-State.

- No concussion protocol tests have been given, let alone cleared.

- It's not the player or coach's decision at this point, correct?

- On the hardwood, something doesn't feel right to Marcus Foster's start this season.

- Yeah, he's scoring, but there seems to be a bit too much prima donna to his game right now -- too much reacting to officials' calls and things.

- Be Marcus Foster, not Marcus Smart.

- As for the rest of Bruce Weber's team, it has some decent athleticism, but I wonder about the point guards' collective ability and decision making, as well as this team's grit.

- Heard a lot about how travel affected the team going to Hawaii. Then again after it got home.

- Hate to tell ya, Wildcats, but you weren't the only team that needed to catch a plane to the islands.

- The whole thing makes me pause when I consider the grind that is Big 12 play.

- That's then, though.

- The now is K-State football playing for a piece of a Big 12 Championship on Saturday.
