K-State Slate: 4.25.14

Lots of Big 12 action heading into the weekend...


In case you missed it, Ahearn Alley's Bring on the Podcast features Ian Boyd talking about Daniel Sams at wide receiver, and about the upcoming Big 12 season.

The BatCats are making their first-ever trip to Morgantown to take on West Virginia. This is the first in a stretch of seven straight road games for K-State. Levi MaVorhis gets the start.

Meanwhile, K-State has quietly become the Big 12's top team in stolen bases (75 steals in 88 attempts). Ross Kivett leads all players with 17 stolen bases. K-State also leads the league in batting average (.298), on-base percentage (.399) and runs per game (6.4).

The Purple-White game is this Saturday (1 PM CDT). Those not attending in person can catch the game on 810 AM.

All your spring game links right here:

For K-State, it's the small things that will make the difference. (The Collegian, Tate Steinlage)

Or maybe it's the defense that will matter most? (The Collegian, Emilio Rivera)

Five things to watch in the spring game. (Jug of Snyder, Grant Nicholson)

K-State is the sleeper pick to win the Big 12, but hyping the video-that-shall-not-be-named is unconscionable. (Fox Sports, David Ubben)

Not related to the spring game, but Ty Zimmerman is working out with the Cincinnati Bengals, and has already met with the Atlanta Falcons.

The K-State women's team is off to Austin this weekend for the Big 12 Championships. The Cats are paired with TCU and Texas Tech, and are hoping to do better than last year's ninth place finish.

K-State advanced to the second round (quarterfinals) of the Big 12 Championships yesterday with a 4-0 sweep of tenth-seeded West Virginia. Up next is second-seed Oklahoma State.

Erica Twiss finished third in the heptathlon at the Drake Relays, setting a personal best record in the long jump. Meanwhile, K-State runner Kyle Hanson took fifth in the 800 m. The event continues today with K-State athletes entered in several events.

K-State will take on the Georgia Bulldogs in non-conference play next season, when Georgia comes to Manhattan. The Cats will make a return visit to Athens in 2015.

Manhattan is in the planning stages of the Big Blue River Pilot Project to raise flood awareness and prepare for future floods. I still remember 1993, so this can only be a good thing.

To close, a thought from our fearless leader/benevolent despot, which is echoed by everyone else on your editorial staff:


We are #FAMILY, as it were.
