Jug Of News (07.17.12)

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 “Coach Joe” finding a new color towel to wave, commissioner Bob Bowlsby talking about lots of stuff, K-State making some serious bank, and more.

This “Jug” is full of stuff, but it’s going to be short. First, our favorite towel-waving, K-State-loving coach (and KSU alum) Joe Gordon has found a new place to wave his towel. He’s moving from his non-“official” coaching position with KSU to a grad assistant job with Division II Mississippi College. In my view, letting Coach Joe walk is potentially shortsighted, but perhaps there is more to this story than we’ve heard thus far.

Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby was interviewed by Galloway & Company on ESPN 103.3 in Dallas. He talks about the conference’s future, the college football playoffs, and more. It’s well worth a listen.

Finally, around the horn quickly:

Stay tuned later today (11:00 a.m.)for this week’s edition of Kansas State Baseball In The Pros. It’s a full edition this time, with some more in-depth updates than last week.

CODA: Kevin Kietzman–and his son, Spencer–are lying liars, who tried to convince people that former K-State great Jacob Pullen is a serial criminal. Just keeping that little tidbit front-of-mind, in hopes that people will pressure them both into issuing a full retraction and an apology.
