<section class="s-intro"><p class="slate-intro">Just a few links to share on this snowy spring day, in honor of which I bring you these famous words from The Daily Gopher, almost exactly a year ago:</p>

Just stop it, winter. We get it. You want us back. But I’m going to let you in on a secret that actually isn’t a secret. We hate you. We badmouth you to all of our friends. When people in other states display interest in getting to know you we make to let them know what a horrible season you are. We post photos with mean captions about you on social media. Frankly, we’re real jerks about it. I mean, it’s not your fault that you just love us so much that you can’t let us go. But it’s time, winter. It’s time to move on. How about we take a break and you go visit family in the southern hemisphere? Maybe we’ll give this relationship another try later. Like December later. We really don’t want to see you stalking us in September or October. That would be creepy.

<section class="s-news"><p>Bruce Weber's contract has been extended through 2019. This is essentially a one year extension, with a salary of $2.5 million for that year, plus a $500,000 retention incentive for staying through the end of the contract. Weber's 47 wins in two seasons is a record for K-State over that time period.</p>

<section class="s-news"><p>Leti Romero's appeal was heard Wednesday afternoon, but as of this writing, there have been no further developments. It is K-State's policy to deny student-athlete release requests except in cases involving "an undue burden on the student-athlete." This policy is explicitly stated in the K-State Student-Athlete Handbook, and appears to be in line with NCAA bylaws.</p>

<section class="s-news"><p>JC transfer Luke Hayes is coming along nicely for the O-line. This is good news indeed, but I'm a bit worried about all the conflicting reports of the team's progress we're getting. Classic Snyder misdirection?

According to the ESPN blog, K-State hopes to contend for the Big 12 this year.

The KC Catbackers are hosting Family Fun Night at Sporting Park on April 30. Bill Snyder will be there. Will you?</p>
