Next, ESPN.com's Big 12 blog ran a cool feature where they ask "What if Big 12 programs could transform their teams through a draft instead of the current recruiting format?" Of course the bottom of the conference gets first dibs on the best talent just like the NFL draft, which means Kansas led off each of the three rounds. The top pick in the fake draft was WR Devin Duvernay who signed with Baylor. The surprise selection in the second round was Oklahoma drafting it's own QB prospect Austin Kendall, and the third round saw Baylor and Oklahoma tie for the most players drafted with three.

Finally, K-State picked up a commitment from Logan Stoddar, a DE/LS from Highland Community College in Highland, KS.

Bring on the Cat's and Jon Morse have made the big time. Both Jon, myself, and the site are quoted/linked in ESPN.com's Big 12 blog article looking ahead to next basketball season, and examining the type of pressure Bruce Weber is under from the fans. (Eamonn Brennan, ESPN.com)

Kansas State will wrap up it's non-conference schedule tonight and tomorrow with games against Wichita State. Tonight, the teams will play at Tointon Family Stadium beginning at 6:30 pm, and then tomorrow at Eck Stadium at 6:30 pm. (kstatesports.com)
