Open-Game Thread / K-State Slate, 3.11.11

Well, yesterday was a beating. I felt (and feel) like Frank looks in the picture above.

Just thought I'd post this for two reasons: 1) I was talking about this overhead shot with another Cat fan earlier, so I just made a screen cap myself. 2) There are UT fans that claim this wasn't an uncalled hard foul, and that it didn't cause Jake to fall on his wrist. To be clear, that IS a forearm in Jake's chest, and a hand slapping him in the face. The defender got NO ball, and ALL body/face. I will post the other caps I made of this in the comments.

Brandon Banks and a friend stabbed outside a D.C. club.

It sounds like Brandon is okay, but his friend was critically injured.

BOTC Fantasy Basketball Update: Panjandrum is out to an early lead

Panjandrum is out to an early lead, as his fantasy squad currently leads in Points, Offensive Rebounds, and Assists, and is tied for the lead in Blocks.

BCS chief: Playoffs "not even in the spectrum."

He also notes that it's more likely that big-time college football will go back to the days of conference tie-ins (no guaranteed 1 vs 2) than it is that there will be a playoff. I'm not a "big government" guy, but at some point, this needs to be taken out of the hands of the mental midgets currently running the show.

BOTC Fantasy Basketball Update: Supplemental Draft Thread

Top NCAA official in full CYA mode over the ludicrous excessive celebration call.

Also, I'm SO glad that OU kicked Randy Edsall's UConn team's butt. I am SO freaking tired of Edsall and rest of the "technically, it was right" crowd. No, when it's called so inconsistently -- and is NEVER called in the situation it was called in during the Pinstripe Bowl -- then it's NOT right, in ANY sense.

Adrian Hilburn versus Tyler Bray

While this article simply calls the penalty "ridiculous", I'll take it a step further. What's the major difference between Tyler Bray (who throat-slashed AND saluted in the Tennessee game) and Adrian Hilburn? Their skin color. I think there's a double-standard between white players and black players, in the way these celebration penalties are called. Just watch the Tennessee game, and how douche-y and OBVIOUS Bray was in his celebration, and tell me there's not.

Jacksonville (Yes, JACKSONVILLE) beats Florida.

Further displaying just what a putrid effort it took for our Cats to lose to Florida, Jacksonville just beat them, 71-68. Pathetic. And I tagged Jake in this fanshot purely out of spite. I love the kid, but bitching about people who are frustrated with the team right now was an incredibly terrible move.

BOTC's Big 12 Fantasy Basketball League — Draft Thread.

Nebraska is joining a league whose hubris equals their own.

They are calling their divisions "Legends" and "Leaders." Does anything more really need to be said? The "Classiest Fans in the Nation" will fit in quite well.

Wally out indefinitely due to "personal reasons."

This link was posted in the comments of the fanshot I put up earlier, as well as in a fanshot by GrumpyCat. Let's all just hope he can get whatever is wrong straightened out. He seems like a good kid that's just going through a lot right now.

Greinke is Better (for the Rangers) Than Lee

Let's take a step back, here. Cliff Lee is nails in the playoffs -- no one disputes that. However, in the long-term, signing Lee for anything more than about 5 years and $110-115 million is a...

Martin: Press release on Sunday will deal with the Wally Judge situation.

Frank calls it "personal issues." Will Wally be released from his scholarship? Will he take a redshirt year to deal with whatever these "personal issues" are? If he has flamed out, we may not land another 5-star McDonald's All-American for quite awhile.

Phil Bennett is officially available to replace Cosh.

Wannstedt is out at Pittsburgh. While Coach Bennett's experience at KSU includes tragedy, I hope Coach Snyder at least picks up the phone and makes the call.

David Whitley absolutely ROASTS (S)Cam Newton in his column today.

While much of the media is playing see-no-evil-hear-no-evil after the NCAA issued their mystifying eligibility ruling, Whitley absolutely destroys Newton in this piece. And, I must say, I absolutely agree with everything he says here. We really have three choices about how we view Cam Newton: (1) He is the most naive rube ever to put on a football uniform in the SEC; (2) He is the stupidest person ever to put on a football uniform in the SEC; or (3) He is a liar, who knew damn well what was going on. I am so so SO glad this guy didn't end up here like we were hoping he would.

One option for Big 12 expansion is gone: TCU is joining the Big East

Snooze you lose, I guess. I'm not too upset, since TCU doesn't bring any TV markets that aren't already covered, but this probably SEVERELY hampers any hope KSU had of landing Coach Patterson when Coach Snyder steps down. And I hope this doesn't come back to bite Dan Beebe and the Big 12 offices in the butt.
