With baseball out of action all week, and NCAA (aka “real”) basketball officially over for the rest of this sports year, we’re left with just football stuff to tide us over today.

K-State Sports reports that the Wildcat football team saw four of its former players named members of the 2017 National Football Foundation (NFF) Hampshire Honor Society. As announced Wednesday by the NFF, linebacker Will Davis, quarterback Joe Hubener, place kicker Ian Patterson, and defensive tackle Matt Seiwert become just the latest set of Wildcats, including a record five in 2015 and four last year, to have received this distinction for their performance in the classroom during their time at K-State.

Ken Corbitt at the Topeka Capital-Journal talked with Trent Tanking at media availability on Monday at the Vanier Football Complex, and the senior linebacker is a strong candidate for the starting linebacker role vacated by the departure of Elijah Lee to the NFL draft. The Holton native has been a mainstay on special teams since he red-shirtted after walking-on in 2013, but has seen spot action at linebacker in several games, notably playing a majority of the game against TCU last season when he recorded five tackles, and an snagged an interception near the goal line on the last play of the game.

Aggieville may have a new look in a few years. The Manhattan City Commission approved a new master plan for the historic business district that organizes Aggieville into three distinct areas that will allow larger building projects along the outside of the area, mainly to the north and south along Bluemont Avenue and Laramie Street, while preserving the historic integrity of buildings in the heart of Aggieville, mainly along Moro Street and Manhattan Avenue. Parking analysis will also be a part of the plan.
