It’s now been two full nights since the painful loss to Oklahoma State on Saturday, yet I still find myself unable to escape the awful taste of bitterness from the game. If you’re feeling the same, here are some headlines to help take your mind off it. Also, here are some headlines to remind you of the game. You only have to read the ones you want.

The Oakland Raiders are reportedly interested in former K-State quarterback Josh Freeman. Looks like they’re about the only team willing to look at him at the moment.

Following a frustrating start to Big 12 play after a stellar nonconference run, the volleyball team collected it’s first league win against TCU on Saturday. The game went to five sets, with the Wildcats pulling out a 15-7 victory in the final set to take home a win.
Still trying to determine if this situation is a dream or a nightmare. A half-ton of bacon? Seriously?
