There are more than 150,000 living alumni of Kansas State University. What familiar faces might you see cheering for the Wildcats against the Frogs?

The Frogs didn't have much trouble with Air Force when the zoomies visited Lupton in mid April, as they earned a three-game sweep and outscored the Falcons 17-3. But it's expected to be windy up in the thin air of Colorado Springs all weekend, and that has been a recipe for some weird things to happen before.
Something to keep an eye on this weekend is the "TBA" that Schlossnagle has as a place-holder in lieu of naming a starting pitcher for Sunday's game. Andrew Mitchell is slated to start tonight and Preston Morrison on Saturday, but it could be that Schloss wants to save Stefan Crichton for the game against the Sooners up in Norman on Tuesday.

Seriously, though- TCU, a school of less than 10,000 total students and to this point just the meager TV money that a membership in the MWC afforded us, fields 18 varsity sports on an athletic budget of $52 million. Kansas State, a university of over 23,000 that averages almost 50,000 paid attendance at football games, fields 14 varsity squads on an athletic budget of $51.5 million. Add in the fact that the Big 12 isn't nearly as far-flung as the MWC, and those assumed smaller travel costs make it seem as if our friends in Manhattan may be mismanaging their money.
The other stat that makes Kansas State an outlier in their own conference is the fact that the Wildcats have never won a national championship...in anything...ever. Hell, even Tech and Baylor have gotten on the national title scoreboard in recent(ish) years due to some sport they call "women's basketball". So while we laughingly have "rifle" as our answer to "everyone's got to be #1 in something", the other purple-wearing team in the conference would probably kill for that honor.
