There’s some stuff happening. We aren’t going to talk about it.

What we WILL talk about is Jordan Willis flat-out pwning the Senior Bowl on Saturday. The Wildcat defensive end recorded a pair of strip-sacks (which goes down on the stat sheet as two sacks and two forced fumbles) as well as a pass breakup. That performance earned him the South team’s Most Outstanding Player honor in a game won by the South 16-15. The best coverage of the game comes, unsurprisingly given its focus, from and Greg Stephenson.

In other football news, the Cats snagged a couple of three-star defensive back recruits over the weekend. On Saturday, DeSoto (Tex.) safety Isaiah Williams announced his intentions, and on Sunday he was joined by Grovetown (Ga.) cornerback Antonio Oliver.

How this will affect today’s intended announcement from four-star corner Evan Fields from Midwest City (Okla.) remains to be seen, but 247 has him strongly leaning toward Arizona State anyway.

Track and Field

K-State’s women, ranked 19th in the nation, seized a victory this weekend in Albuquerque as they came from behind to claim a two-point win over host New Mexico. The win was achieved by taking second in the final event of the day, the 4x400 relay. K-State event wins included Nina Schultz in the 60m hurdles, Claudette Allen in long jump, Shardia Lawrence in the triple jump, and Janee Kassanavoid in the weight throw. The Cats did not win the high jump, but did go 2-3-4 with Morgan Coffman, Schultz, and Rhizlane Siba.

The men... did not fare so well. They finished seventh out of seven teams, although Terrell Smith won the 200m and Brady Grunder went 1-2 with Mitch Dixon in the weight throw.

This weekend, the team will be in Lincoln for the Sevigne Husker Invitational.
