An SB Nation must read: Steven Godfrey's fabulous piece on money in college football: Meet the Bag Man. If Sports Illustrated's "expose" on Oklahoma State was a hatchet job, this was a clinic in how to write a feature without preconception or judgment.

And here's Mr. Godfrey on Finebaum.

In a week when K-State athletes are getting a lot of recognition, Ross Kivett is no exception. He was named to the Golden Spikes Award midseason watch list. Kivett is in the top 5 of the conference in various categories including in runs scored, on-base percentage and hits.

The official recap for the BatCats 10-6 win over Nebraska on Wednesday is now up.

K-State's Kelly Bovaird has been named the NCEA's Rider of the Month for March for horsemanship. She was previously named the Big 12 Rider of the Month as well. The equestrian team is currently preparing for the NCEA National Championships.

K-State defensive back Jonathan Coleman is one of 16 male finalists for the Arthur Ashe Jr. Sports Scholar Award, which recognizes student-athletes for their athletic and academic achievements. He joins Oklahoma State's Lance Grey (track) and Texas' Jessica Glennie (crew) as Big 12 finalists for the award. Baylor's Robert Griffin III is a former Ashe award recipient.

K-State will host a USTA/ITA Campus Kids Day at Mike Goss Tennis Stadium on April 19. The event is part of K-State's final home series of the season, and is open to children K-8.

K-State track and field athletes are off the Jim Click Shootout in Tuscon this weekend. Last year, K-State finished third overall in a field that featured four Top 25 squads.

In the USTFCCCA Midwest Region, the K-State men are ranked #13, while the women are #9.

A Collegian op-ed riffs on whether immediacy is killing the news, in a slight departure from a recent BotC-commentiscussion.

Of course, none of this really matters now that you'll probably be getting your news from Stephen Colbert on The Late Show.
