K-State Slate: 6.13.15 - Is Mizzou back on the schedule?

New, 5 comments

An old rivalry rekindled? Maybe. Maybe not.

BracketCat's roster countdown rolls on, with #85, tight end Curtis Stallbaumer.

The men took the field on the third day of the NCAA Outdoor Championships. High jumpers Nate Gipson and Christoff Bryan were the only Kansas State athletes in action yesterday. Gipson finished 18th and Bryan finished 23rd, both earning All-American honorable mentions in the process. Gipson's jump of 2.18m left him just out of the top 16, which would have been good enough for second team All-America honors. Bryan never managed to find a rhythm, clearing the opening height of 2.08, but missing on all three attempts at the next height.

Today, the women high jumpers Akela Jones, Alyx Treasure and Kim Williamson will be in action, along with triple jumper Alyssa Kelly. You can follow along on Twitter via @kstate_gameday and the hashtag #KStateTF.

If the news of brisk season tickets sales for men's basketball left you scratching your head, the latest bit of news might help. Or not.

Head coach Bruce Weber is apparently open to the idea of a recurring game against Missouri, a team the Wildcats may play next year in the semifinals of the CBE Classic. With Kansas not interested in renewing its border rivalry with the Tigers, Kansas State may as well reignite its own rivalry across the border (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle).

Meanwhile, Brian Rohleder has finally earned a scholarship. It is easy to be unhappy about Kansas State basketball these days, but it's hard not to be happy for Rohleder, a player who works hard on court and in the classroom and is about as EMAW as they come. Congratulations, Brian!
