    Cut047joel.phatch

    Marcus Foster is gone. Tre Harris, too. Same with Jevon Thomas. The best thing Kansas State can do now, is move forward. Really, it’s all they can do. The Wildcats won’t be bringing their leading scorer back. Not under any circumstances. And they

    Jellison: Weber not going anywhere

    Cut047joel.phatch

    Without a doubt, it’s been a disappointing season for the Kansas State men’s basketball program and its fans. Despite that, it appears that Bruce Weber will be back as head coach. The Wildcats had high expectations and even higher aspirations when the season

    Still celebrating Kansas State’s win over the rival Jayhawks last night? That’s great. Enjoy it. No, really. Soak it up. Now allow me to be your voice of reason going forward — that little voice in your head that reminds you about something we

    Jellison: Spiraling Wildcats are a mess

    Cut047joel.phatch

    Globe1.phatch

    Some teams live and die by the 4-pointer (not really) and the Harlem Globetrotters certainly lived by it Thursday night — making one at the buzzer to erase the Washington Generals’ hopes of replicating its famed 1971 victory in the long rivalry — the last time they defeated

    Ned seaton

    A couple thoughts on two recent events: —With the firing of Bo Pelini as the football coach at Nebraska, I can’t help but think of Frank Martin and Bill Snyder. Martin, because the parallels tell you something. And Snyder, because, well, it just reminds
