Richard Myers, the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under President George W. Bush, is in his first year as Kansas State president, and it would seem that some of the finer points of college sports fandom have been lost on the 74-year-old military man.
Bill Snyder, Kansas State’s 77-year-old head coach, announced on Monday morning that he’s been receiving treatment for throat cancer for the past three weeks. In a statement, Snyder said he plans to continue coaching the Wildcats while he undergoes treatment.
With Kansas and Kansas State tied up at 88 with 5.6 seconds left, the Jayhawks gave the ball to Svi Mykhailiuk. Mykhailiuk took it end-to-end and scored a buzzer-beating layup, preserving Kansas’ NCAA-high 50-game home win streak.
Kansas State beat Texas A&M 33-28 in their bowl game last night, but their cause was not helped by cornerback Donnie Starks.
Quality shoes, those Nikes. Kansas State was actually leading top-ranked Oklahoma until Wildcats forward D.J. Johnson had his shoe disintegrate in the middle of a play. It’s still close in the second half, but the Sooners hold a four-point lead.
Kansas State officials continue to apologize for anyone they might have offended by Saturday’s Jayhawk-vs-dong marching band formation, while insisting there was “no ill intention.” The Star Trek-themed program purported to show the U.S.S. Enterprise attacking a “horrible space creature,” but to nearly everyone it…
This is, supposedly, the Kansas State band as the U.S.S. Enterprise “encountering a horrible space creature.” It looks a lot more like the Kansas Jayhawk performing fellatio.
Oh, no. No, no, no.
The Horned Frogs are making their case for a spot in the playoff. A week after an offensive explosion, No. 6 TCU kept its foot on the gas, routing No. 7 Kansas State 41-20. The Wildcats were undefeated in the Big 12, and actually ahead of TCU, entering today's game. This adds to the shakeup of the top-10 today, with…
This is one of the more bizarre plays you'll see today. Kansas State blocked its second UTEP punt of the first quarter, only to see the entire play called back due to an inadvertent whistle. And it took 12 minutes—12 minutes!—for officials to realize and then verify that they screwed up.
Kansas State upset rival Kansas in overtime tonight, leading to a court-storming at Bramlage Coliseum that left ESPN reporter Holly Rowe with nowhere to go—so she joined the Wildcats atop the scorer's table, and conducted her postgame interview there.
La Salle upset Kansas State today, driving Deadspin writers into a frenzy and ruining brackets for those of you foolish enough to trust Bruce Weber to do anything right. He did, for what it's worth, try for a last-second strategy play. Too bad nobody noticed.
Kansas State football coach Bill Snyder is in attendance for the Wildcats' bout in Kansas City against La Salle. What's he eating? Some people have suggested it's a hot dog, but that's one big-ass hot dog. I think it's a burrito.
The last time we wrote about Kansas State guard Angel Rodriguez, he was facing chants of "Where's Your Green Card" from a brain-dead Southern Miss band. Sadly, the Wildcats' backcourt star can't escape comments about his ethnic background, as ESPN announcer Mitch Holthus made note of Rodriguez's "Puerto Rican…
Forbes's latest best guess at the most valuable college football programs is out, and if you're a Texas fan, congratulations: Your slavering devotion to the Death Star of the Big 12 has paid off once again. You're number one! Granted, you're in the "also receiving votes" category in the AP's poll of on-the-field…

A week from college football's end-of-season reckoning and Kansas State and Oregon, ranked first and second respectively in the BCS standings going into today's games, have taken their first losses of the season. The defeats likely pave the way for a new BCS leader in (gulp) Notre Dame, a 38-0 winner today against…

So I'm going to tell you a story, and you tell me if it sounds made-up, because Kansas State is sticking to it and saying it's definitely not made up.
