Welcome to our humble abode. Pull up a seat and grab a glass for a sip from todays Jug of News. Hit the jump for MVP news, more Frank Martin fibbing, former K-State RB delusions of grandeur, dead hookers, and more.
In perhaps the least shocking news ever, Rodney McGruder was named MVP of the 2011-12 men’s basketball team. Seniors Jamar Samuels and Victor Ojeleye both received two awards. For some reason, Frank Martin did not show up to congratulate any of them.
Martin claims he “didn’t run away” from K-State. Yeah, sure. I will have a longer article detailing what I’ve learned about his departure at some point, but suffice to say, he got while the getting was as good as it was going to get for him. Things were preparing to go downhill very quickly.
The NFL draft started yesterday. The Wildcats have some hopefuls in Tysyn Hartman and (maybe) David Garrett. This could very well be the first time in awhile that the Cats do not have a draftee. We also have one former kinda-sorta RB that maintains delusions of NFL grandeur. An NFL team would have to be insane to waste a pick on him. I think he has a decent chance to latch on as a free agent, but given his incredible self-absorption, I do not want to see him anywhere near the Chiefs or the Cowboys. And yes, the non-use of his name is intentional. The New York Times takes a look at the craziness that followed the predictable Luck/RG3 top two combo platter in the first round.
The Okie State Pokes have named a new starting QB, a young man named Wes Lunt. And when I say young, I mean young: he’s a freshman. Let’s just hope he doesn’t work out nearly so well as their last two quarterbacks did.
In sports-related political news, Craig James’ chances of becoming a senator have approximately the same vital signs as those of the hookers who did “business” with the Pony Express. Yeah, so that’s all I’ll say about that.
