Men’s Basketball

Interm Athletics Director Laird Veatch confirmed Monday what everyone had long suspected, Bruce Weber will coach at Kansas State next season. (Ned Seaton, The Mercury)

In confirming Weber’s return, Veatch, may have given him the dreaded “vote of confidence” that seems to foreshadow future coaching changes. (Kellis Robinett, The Wichita Eagle)

In recruiting news, Coach Weber attended the NJCAA Tournament last weekend to scout power forward, Shakur Johnson of Hutchinson. Johnson appears to have eliminated the Wildcats from consideration as his top 9 schools did not include Kansas State. (Ken Corbitt, Capital Journal)

Baseball

Following a sweep by Texas, the Wildcat hope to regain momentum with a weekday trip to Lincoln, Neb to face former conference foe, Nebraska. (Kstatesports.com)

The meeting will be the 281st between the teams, with Nebraska holding a 166-114 edge. (Lincoln Journal Star)

Football

It seems like every season the Kansas State secondary hopes to find redemption from poor performances the year prior. It may be harder to find redemption this season, with the Wildcats forced to replace safety Dante Barnett and Donnie Starks. (Pete Mundo, Heartland College Sports)
