Weirdness decends upon us this wonderful Monday morning, largely at the hands of the Houston Chronicle's Brian T. Smith, who (a) openly insults a school which has actually accomplished far more than Houston, which hasn't even managed four straight winning seasons since the 70s, and (b) apparently thinks West Virginia and K-State are rivals.
Well, if he wants to get weird, so can we. Check in later as we celebrate the Memorial Day holiday by presenting the case for Michigan.
No, we're not kidding.
Because 00 delayed the Saturday slate in order to get K-State's own NCAA preliminaries track results in as hot news rather than tomorrow's leftovers, we have no actual news for you this morning. However, we do have a smattering of reports from state high school meets which included Wildcat recruits. This isn't an exhaustive list.
Your benevolent despot's alma mater captured the Kansas 6A boy's track title this weekend. Wildcat commit Noah Stevenson sealed the deal for Shawnee Mission North by holding off Lawrence's J.D. Woods in his leg of the finals of the boys 4x400.
In Missouri, Waynesville's Ariel Okorie earned three medals, taking first in the girls' 100m hurdles, second in the 300m hurdles and long jump, and adding a fourth-place finish in the high jump as well. She'll also be wearing purple this fall, and check out her career goal at the end of her section. Wowsa.
In Washington's 3A/2A state meet, future Wildcat Wurrie Njadoe grabbed three golds, winning the 100m, 200m, and long jump. The Gambian was so dominant in the 200 that she won by over half a second, which isn't a small victory.
Brent Wagner at the Lincoln Journal-Star drops a profile on Lincoln Southwest's Hannah Davis, who will be a freshman for K-State's first full season of soccer. Davis thought about graduating early to join the squad this fall, but opted to stay for her senior year.
