Fairly light plate for this morning, considering there’s a football game against the festering evil tomorrow. Speaking of which, you can get started on that journey with today’s installment of Kicking the Tires, wherein the usually reserved and conservative TB predicts... well, go read it yourself, silly.
In other football news, there will be no Belldozer at K-State. Kellis Robinett reports that Brett Bell, the former Bishop Carroll standout whose brother played quarterback at Oklahoma, is transferring.
Tonight at the Arvest Bank Theater at the Midland in Kansas City, the newest class of inductees into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame will be enshrined. There’s not a dud in this class, which includes DePaul’s Mark Aguirre, Illinois State’s Doug Collins, La Salle’s Lionel Simmons, UCLA’s Jamaal Wilkes, Georgia’s Dominique Wilkins, Georgia/Florida State/Jacksonville coach Hugh Durham, Stanford/Cal/Montana coach Mike Montgomery, and... K-State legend Bob Boozer, who will join former Wildcats Rolando Blackman and Tex Winter in the hall. Robinett has more on Boozer.
Two Wildcat teams announced a bunch of signings this week: women’s golf and rowing. The three golf signings include natives of Australia and Ireland, which means the team will have an exceptional accent game. Ella Adams was the 2015 South Australia Junior Amateur Champion. Reid Isaac is a three-year Texas State Medalist. And Niamh McSherry won the Irish Under-18 Women’s Open this year.
As for the fifteen rowing signees, all but one have no previous rowing experience, being athletes from other sports who fit Patrick Sweeney’s desired physical profile. The exception: Shawnee Mission East’s Ellie Braly.
With so much action mid-week, it’s less surprising than you’d think, but there are no Wildcat squads in action today. So get some rest and get ready for tomorrow, when we’ll start with K-State at Baylor and finish with K-State at Texas in volleyball. Hoo-boy.
