Welcome BotC readers. We come to you today from the ice planet, Hoth. I have braved the cold, ice, and poor road conditions to bring you today’s slate. Expect an approx. 100% increase in your subscription fees to cover these hazardous work conditions. And now onto sports.

Promoted Defensive Coordinator Blake Seiler has a new contract which runs through April 2021. The contract includes a raise from $265,000 per year to $440,000 per year, and no buy out if Seiler leaves for a head coaching position at the college level. (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle)


Kansas State survived a 7th inning rally from Elon to take an 8-7 victory. Freshman Caleb Littlejim threw a career high 5 13 innings, allowing 3 runs (2 earned), on 80 pitches. The win moves the BatCats to 2-3 on the season. Next up for the BatCats is a three game series against Old Dominion starting Friday at 2 pm. (
