Yesterday, JeffP dropped the Visual Box Score from the West Virginia game. Hint: it's not pretty for the Purple.
Our newest contributor, Gracey, posted a slew of news yesterday as well. Cody Whitehair turning heads at Senior Bowl practice; news that donations to our athletic department were among the top in the nation last year; and Gracey was a guest on 94.1 ESPN Emporia to talk K-State, her gig here, and a few other things.
As the Reese's Senior Bowl and National Signing Day approach, football gets to move back to #1 on the list. First, James Walker at ESPN reports that the New England Patriots might be interested in the little brother of their star tight end Rob Gronkowski. For his part, Glenn Gronkowski says he would be excited to get to play with one of his brothers, mostly because he's never actually been able to before.
BJ Kissel, Chiefs reporter for Chiefs.com, talks about how Cody Whitehair is impressing at the Senior Bowl. Cody grew up watching the Chiefs, and wouldn't mind playing in Kansas City. And any Chiefs fan could surely tell you that you can't have too many good lineman, especially one that can play several positions on the line.
Since thie class is mostly graduated now, Max Olson at ESPN decided to take a look at, and regrade, the 2012 recruiting classes in the Big 12. He improved K-State's class from a C- to a B, but still manages to get in a couple of jabs aimed at the "ALL TEH JUCOS" generalization.
Be sure to check back to BOTC later today as we start dropping our own breakdowns of the current incoming Wildcat class as we lead up to National Signing Day 2016.
Michelle Voepel at ESPN sat down with WBB HC Jeff Mittie (as well as KU WBB HC Brandon Schneider) to talk about bringing back success to K-State Women's Basketball. Apparently, K-State and KU women have been meeting on the hardwood since 1969, several years before Title IX was signed, and started out with a Wildcat victory.
