Good news, as this sounded extremely bad from Wyatt and Stan's description of it.

They got whatever they got, and they decided not to come. That's OK. I don't have anything to say about that. ... I've said all I'm going to say. I've had all kinds of e-mails over the years. It's not a problem.

"Dr. Tom" Osborne, when asked to comment on the death threats, threats of violence, and targeting of Dan Beebe's daughter on Facebook by angry Nebraska fans. Looks like the "classiest fans in America" come by their "class" honestly. Stay classy Lincoln. Stay classy.

Just because they make mistakes doesn’t mean I’m going to stop loving them. But when they make mistakes, I’m going to hold them accountable. I’m not going to make their life easy when they screw up, because all I’d be preparing them for is failure when I’m not in their daily life anymore. It’s no different for Curt or any of the guys on our team. Those are my guys.

Each of them made mistakes, but I don’t think it had anything to do with rhythm because they both did some good things. I’ll have to watch game tapes, but if we have to switch them out we will.

Head Coach Bill Snyder, grasping for a reason to continue playing the woefully inadequate Carson Coffman alongside Collin Klein. Yeah, Coffman's "mistakes" led to a huge momentum swing. Klein's led to a burnt timeout. I think I'm going to be sick.

"Im not gonna' entertain somethin' that took place, not 3 months, no not 6 months, not even a year -- two years ago. Uhh, I'm not gonna sit up here and say anything about it, whether I did or did not do it. You know, because I think, you know -- I don't wanna' ... uhh ... beat a dead horse, talking about it, because it's not gonna' affect me no way, shape, form, or fashion.

Cam Newton goes all Mark McGwire on us about the claims that he cheated several times while at Florida, during a press conference, as reported on ESPN's College Football Live. Gene Chizik then proceeded with a Mike Gundy-lite defense. Something like "He's our son, and I've got a problem with it. I've got a problem with it!" I am so so so SO glad this kid didn't come to KSU.

Let the MSM Cat hate begin. It opens with ESPN's John Gasaway taking potshots. I won't link the actual story, for two reasons: (1) It's mostly behind a paywall, at ESPN.com; and (2) It's an article calling the Cats vastly overrated already, with not one game played. In other words, it's not worth reading. This is why I hate preseason polls, in all sports: it gives blowhards a chance to be blowhards.

We are fortunate to have one of the best environments in college basketball in Bramlage Coliseum. This early sell-out of season tickets is a testament to the hard work of Coach Martin, his staff and our student-athletes as well as the loyalty and passion of K-State fans. We are proud K-State Basketball can continue to be accessible to all K-State fans with tickets still available and affordably priced for home games during the holiday break and the much anticipated match-up with UNLV December 21 at the Sprint Center in Kansas City.

Athletics Director John Currie (In related news, KU still has plenty of Men's Basketball season tickets available. Must be the sudden influx caused by their recent ticket "issues.")
