Welcome to our humble abode. Pull up a seat and grab a glass for a sip from today’s Jug of News. Hit the jump for K-State footballers getting some love from West Virginia MetroNews, Mike Beasley finding an NBA landing spot, and K-State’s “Mount Wildcat.”

West Virginia MetroNews has three KSU football players in its Top 25 players in the Big 12. Collin Klein checks in at #2, which I feel is about right, given his season last year, and the progress that most seem to expect from him this year. The other two rankings confused me just a bit, not because of who was ranked, but where they were ranked. WVMN has Nigel Malone at #11, and Arthur Brown at #16. I think both players are deserving of a spot, but I’d probably have flip-flopped their respective rankings.

In basketball news, a K-State NBA alum has found a new home. Michael Beasley has reportedly agreed to sign with the Phoenix Suns for $18 million over two years. Congratulations to Michael, and here’s hoping he can finally live up to his massive potential in the NBA.

Finally, K-State Sports Extra’s Mark Janssen has a couple of stories about who would be on the four-person “Mount Wildcat” (a la Mount Rushmore) for both men and women’s sports. The men’s group, published yesterday, contains one real surprise: Thane Baker, whose name I’m sure no one reading this column has ever heard before this very moment. The women’s group was published the day before yesterday, and contained a couple of names I’d never heard.
