Slowly we awoke from our bye week induced sleep, and we were gently ramping up the coverage machine for this weeks upcoming game. PervisPascosTravellingCircus and nugget1224 had what should have been your brunch like crowdsourcing. However, we got served a big steaming cup of expresso, as John Currie and Kansas State announced the termination of the equestrian team, in favor of adding women's soccer. The bat signal went up and TB answered the call with a great post on why this is happening.
Kickoff has been set for the Texas game, and it's our favorite 11:00 A.M. time. The game should be broadcast on ESPN, ESPN 2, or ESPNU. We don't know what exactly will be happening, but most of your BotC staff will be at the game so
look out look for us if you are out there Saturday Morning.
