K-State Slate: 4.15.14

It's the slowest time of the year in SportsLandia.

The Streak nearly died, only to be rescued at the last minute. Way to go, crew. :).

K-State takes on the Huskers in Haymarket Park tonight. The BatCats hope to rebound from the sweep at Texas Tech, while Nebraska is hoping to finally beat their K-State bug. The Cats have won five straight against the Huskers. Colton Kalmus (RHP; 3-1, 3.68) gets the start.

Interestingly, the BatCats are leading the Big 12 in batting average (.296) but are dead last in ERA (4.00).

K-State is learning through spring ball (in an article that's mostly about KU, by the way).

The folks at WRNL don't seem too upbeat about 2014. Watch them be really awesome just in time for the game against K-State.

The Collegian's Emilio Rivera and David Embers go head-to-head to decide which player is the best quarterback prospect in this year's draft. Rivera thinks Manziel, but Embers picks Bortles.

On top of the 68 rowers honored yesterday, 15 K-State rowers were also named to the Conference USA Academic Medal list for athletes with GPA of 3.75 or higher.

Since it's a slow news day, here's some non-KSU football news from various places around SBN:

ETA: The National College Players Association and Drexel University have released a study on college football players and compensation: Pay for Play. Here's the actual report (in PDF form), in case you're looking for some light bedtime reading.

There's way more to that story of Bo Pelini and his cat that we may have ever wanted to know. A lot of this suggests Pelini might have (gasp!) a sense of humor. Who knew?!

Ian Boyd writes a fascinating piece about Florida's updated offense: Murderball, Refined.

Meanwhile, Clemson has apparently had it with QB Chad Kelly and gave him the boot today.
