K-State Slate: 06.19.14: How much will K-State miss Sams?

The summer doldrums are here, which means a lot of slow news days...

I'm guessing Bill will miss Mack a lot too

BracketCat's roster countdown continues, with #73, AJ Allen.

As noted in the comments yesterday, K-State has announced improvements to Bramlage Coliseum. The $2.4M project will include scoreboard enhancements, such as a 25x18 center-hung LED video board along with six other LED boards at the north and south ends of the arena. The project will be funded from existing athletic department revenues and not through tuition increases or other university sources.

Speaking at a Catbackers tour stop in Wichita, Bill Snyder admitted the offense will miss Daniel Sams. But he was as tight-lipped as expected on most other news. Apparently, he's taking a wait-and-see approach. The more things change....

Speaking of the Catbackers tour, fans in Marysville hosted Bruce Weber, Nino Williams, Jeff Mittie, and Mo Lattimore. Mo was more forthcoming than Snyder and said the defense has a lot of new faces, but looks good.

The Auburn game is an early candidate for Game of the Year, and well, it should be.

Three K-State student-athletes were named Big 12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year in their respective posts. Golfer Daniel Wood was the only Big 12 golfer to carry a 4.0 GPA. Predictably, Petra Niedermayerova won the category for women's tennis, as did rower Alison Dorau.

In honor of his many contributions to the school, K-State's newest residence hall will be named after Jon Wefald, and will open in 2016.

Finally, a plea to your sense of charity: Heroes for Hospice, a Kansas City-area hospice service provider is hosting a 5K charity run on June 22. Please consider participating and/or donating to a good cause. Proceeds will benefit Kansas City Hospice and Palliative Care and Midland Care Hospice in Topeka and Lawrence.
