K-State Slate: 2.14.14

Today is an utterly random day. Chaos and confusion reign.

We're looking for a couple of things. One, specifically someone who's crazy enough about the BatCats to want to write about them that can partner up with me to handle coverage. Two, for folks actually in or around Manhattan who occasionally attend non-revenue sports events -- or who have occasion to attend a K-State road contest in those sports -- we could really use some good photos, as the libraries licensed to us contain almost nothing. If either of those things are something you can pitch in with, please hit Jon up in e-mail.

Speaking of sending Jon e-mail: please remember that any time you have a concern about something related to the site, we want to hear from you. The benevolent despot jokes don't mean anything unless it's actually benevolent, and it can't be benevolent if your concerns aren't addressed.

Previously on BotC: Curtis gives Bruce Weber attaboys in his weekly notes, Ahearn re-evaluates the Big 12 situation in Tournament Thursday, and Jon kicks off baseball season for you.

Men's Basketball:

USA Today's bubble tracker (updated after Ahearn's post yesterday) illustrates just how good this conference is: they've got six Big 12 teams in the field, and two teams on the bubble just just missing (Baylor and West Virginia). That's right: West Virginia has actually turned themselves into a bubble team, which has the advantage of turning the Wildcats' loss in Morgantown into no big deal, especially considering what happened Monday night.

From Ken Corbitt: Marcus Foster is diligently working on improving his shot selection. It's not uncommon for a player to think they need to do better physically, but if players realizing they need to play smarter turns you on, prepare to be excited.

The Collegian's John Zetmeir thinks it's important for the 'Cats to steal a road win tomorrow at Baylor.

Kellis Robinett observes that the Wildcats' two key seniors are moving in decidedly different directions. It's a pretty brutal criticism of Shane Southwell -- do you think it's an unfair one?

K-State Sports Extra's Mark Janssen highlights K-State's two star freshmen: Marcus Foster and Leti Romero. Which leads us to...

Women's Basketball:

The official preview of Saturday's game against Texas Tech. Which is apparently the real Play4Kay day, and the real celebration of the 2004 Big 12 Champions. Because I'm totally confused.


NATIONAL CHAMPIONS! K-State won the National Collegiate Beef Quiz Bowl Championship last week in Nashville. I think it's safe to say that MeatGeek will now totally hijack today's thread, assuming he's lucid.
