Spring game time!
For those of you fortunate to attend, I hope Sporting Park is amazing. For the rest of you, here's Jon Morse with the obligatory How to (Not) Watch post, and Curtis Kitchen with his pregame notes: Five Quick Thoughts.
The spring game is largely meaningless, but it is the official start of football season, and for us Kansas State fans, it is not a day too soon. Spring games are also great for all manner of unfounded speculation about the actual season.

Finally, here's ESPN's roundup of this weekend's spring action in the Big 12 (Jake Trotter, ESPN(blog))
The tennis team's run in the Big 12 Championship came to a predictable end as they were blanked (4-0) by regular season conference champion Baylor. The Bears clinched the match with wins at number one, two, four and five singles. Playing at the three and six spots, Iva Bago and Amina St. Hill had each forced a third set, but the matches were abandoned once Baylor clinched.
The Wildcats ended their first season under coach Danielle Steinberg with a 9-17 record. Most of the team returns next year, but without St. Hill who is graduating this year.
The track team is currently in Berkeley, California for the Brutus Hamilton Open. The men and women combined for 12 top-five finishes and three top-10 finishes.
On the track, Laura Galvan (5000m) and Morgan Wedekind (3000m steeplechase) set personal best records, with Wedekind easily besting the 14-member race and Galvan coming in second in the 5000m event. Sonia Gaskin easily won the 400m dash, a good two seconds ahead of the rest of the field.In the field events, Sara Savatovic continued her winning ways, taking first in the hammer throw event, and in the javelin throw, Ivan Hartung and Danie Plank took second in the men's and women's event respectively.
