Previously

Yesterday, General Richard Myers (Ret.) was named as Kansas State Universities 14th President, and Gracey Terrill brought us the story.

Gracey, also broke the news on the Women’s Basketball teams Mannequin Challenge. I think HC Jeff Mittie’s pose was the best.

Finally, Greg Woods closed the BotC shop last night with a recap of Kansas State’s victory over Omaha.

The Wildcats will look for a season sweep against Oklahoma on Saturday, after beating the Sooners 3-1 in Norman last month. (A match which yours truly and your benevolent despot attended).
