    Kinder: No benefit to dumping Weis right now

    Josh mug color

    I don’t imagine it’s ever an easy decision to fire a coach, especially during the season like Charlie Weis was on Sunday. But nonetheless, that’s what Kansas athletic director Sheahon Zenger felt was necessary after the Jayhawks’ 2-2 start to the season

    Guggisberg: K-State’s defense passes latest test

    Grant.phatch

    Maybe it’s too early in the season to start this kind of talk, but I’ll say it anyway. This Kansas State defense looks special. Now let me qualify it. The final score of 58-28 doesn’t scream defensive dominance. Not against a Conference

    Guggisberg: Strong defense gives Wildcats a chance

    Grant.phatch

    On a night when Kansas State needed its defense to be special, it obliged. That’s the positive spin in an otherwise maddening loss for K-State, which left 16 points on the field in the form of three missed field goals and a fluky interception in

    Cameron: Believe in the surging Royals yet?

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    KANSAS CITY — You almost have to start believing when the Royals’ margin of victory comes via two home runs by Erik Kratz. Don’t you? Kratz, a 34-year-old journeyman catcher, was picked up from Toronto on July 28 in exchange for utility infielder Danny Valencia — and

    Cameron: Baseball Hall missing the point

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    That quote from a Hall of Famer has been recycled every few years, and with good reason. Baseball certainly has bumbled along despite itself — from a time long before Terry’s heyday in the 1930s right up to this evening. Start with this: What sort

    Seaton: Try to put growing athletics in perspective

    If you’ve ever dreamed of diving into a pool full of twenty-dollar bills, just head to Bramlage Coliseum. That’s the headquarters of the K-State athletics department, and they’re swimming in money up there. It’s spurting out of spigots so fast they

    Cameron: US rallies to edge nemesis Ghana

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    Don’t lie, soccer fans. Your head dropped in despair in the 82nd minute Monday night, and that red, white and blue top hat tumbled onto the carpet. You could almost hear the entire nation groan as Ghana’s relentless, game-long pressure finally broke an

    Kinder: Romero’s case makes K-State look like a bully

    Josh mug color

    Athletic directors don’t want to believe it and the NCAA tries to pretend it doesn’t happen. The Leti Romero case at Kansas State should serve as a reminder for everyone that not all student-athletes commit and sign with universities, but rather with coaches

    Jellison: KSU seniors carved path for next year

    Cut047joel.phatch

    There was a clear theme to the questions four-year seniors Shane Southwell and Will Spradling were asked Friday night following Kansas State’ season-ending loss to Kentucky in the NCAA tournament. How do you want to be remembered or what do you think your legacy will

    Kinder: Firing Patterson could prove a risky gamble for Currie

    Josh mug color

    We’ve seen bold and daring before, and in five years time, John Currie has been nothing short of that as Kansas State’s athletic director. Currie was aggressive in overhauling K-State’s fundraising efforts, taking over an athletic department riddled with missteps and turning
