Slate: Some heat and some flames

It’s a dead heat in the QB race; and there was a very live heat at Hale Library on Tuesday.

Hale Library, Kansas State University


The spring semester is over, and before the summer practices begin Kellis Robinett at the Wichita Eagle broke down the QB battle between Skylar Thompson and Alex Delton, which Bill Snyder said was “dead even” back at the end of spring practices.

Berry Tramel at the Oklahoman put together a Big 12 football fan travel guide. K-State gets top marks for stadium experience, and Aggieville gets rave reviews. Don’t laugh too hard at the description of that other school though.


The Big 12 coaches are forbidden from voting for their own team for preseason awards. That means that every year Bill Self must pick some other team (and laugh) to finish first in the Big 12. For the 2018-19 preseason poll, Self will be voting for Bruce Weber and Kansas State (Robinett, Eagle).


There was a three-alarm fire at Hale Library yesterday, requiring the building to be evacuated and still be closed today. No one was hurt in the incident* that affected the oldest part of the library. While losing library services is important, Hale Library also serves as the hub for K-State’s information technology systems, and the fire has affected K-State’s online systems and potentially some Internet connectivity on campus (Brianna Childers, Capital-Journal).

*Unofficial reports indicate the fire was caused by roofers working on that part of the building.
