With the glorious victory at Oklahoma still fresh on everyone's mind, Curtis Kitchen got us stared with some basketball? Yes, Men's basketball where Jack Karapetyan received his release from Kansas State yesterday in order for him to pursue a transfer.

Kitchen followed that up with his decidedly Purple Power Rankings, where it appears the Big 12 Championship is K-State's or TCU's to lose.

Finally, PervisPascosTravellingCircus stopped by for your happy hour fix, with the Texas crowdsourcing polls. Voting is encouraged, but drink and vote at your own risk.

M.Hofeld of Crimson and Cream Machine penned a great recap of exactly how Kansas State managed to eek out a victory over Oklahoma, and (spoiler) it all came down to the Pick, the Kicks, and the Plays.

Bill Connelly (you know him as Bill C) checks in on the Big 12's wild and wacky chase for the championship noting that both K-State and TCU are the best bets for a playoff appearance.

Rolling Stone's (yes that Rolling Stone) writer Michael Weinreb continues to be impressed by the Wildcats ability to spring the upset and crash the playoff party.

dnoll5 of SBNation's Rock Chalk Talk has the Big 12 Week Eight recap, where-in he recaps what was the third wild Big 12 week in a row.

The November 1st game against Oklahoma State is on a six-day pick along with TCU at West Virginia, Oklahoma at Iowa State, and Texas at Texas Tech. Let's keep our fingers crossed for a start time other than 11 A.M.

Wescott Eberts over at Burnt Orange Nation has a recap of Charlie Strong's press conference prior to this weeks game against the Wildcats.

While Head Coach Bill Snyder didn't go full on "Playoff? Playoffs!" he did admit he has "absolutely no idea" how things will shake out writes Ken Corbitt from the Capital Journal.

Roto world has a preview of B.J. Finney where they project him as a mid-round draft pick in the NFL. Should this become true it would extend the longest current Big 12 streak of having a player picked in the draft.

Erik Horne of The Oklahoman has your Big 12 notebook, and notes Bill Snyder knows exactly what Michael Hunnicutt is going through.

The Capital-Journal notes Kansas State's move up to #22 in the AVCA Coaches Poll despite losing in straight sets to Texas last Saturday.

Yes, I know its buzzfeed. And yes some of us are from other cities that are also pretty cool. But the Royals have been awesome this post-season and you can't help but root for them. So go take your Crown KC!
