As 2014 continues to wind down, I have found myself reflecting back to this past year of covering all of K-State Athletics' teams on a daily basis. There have been many, many exciting stories in 2014, but every time I think back to the happenings from January to December, I realize almost each team has had something in common.

Letter from A.D. John Currie - December 18

Good Morning K-State Nation!

On a beautiful snowy December morning let me start by saluting the road crew in the city of Manhattan.  Mrs. Currie is grateful that you got the plows out extra early all over town so the USD 383 schools could open on time (and get the kids out of the house)!  And speaking of "behind the scenes" folks working hard, hats off to the Bramlage Coliseum event staff - in 48 hours beginning this past Friday evening and concluding Sunday night the staff went all out to host six K-State graduation ceremonies and two basketball games!

Of course among those several thousand K-State students receiving undergraduate and advanced degrees were 38 student-athletes who proudly walked across the stage at Bramlage Coliseum last weekend.  We had a fun group with lots of proud parents and family members at our student-athlete graduation reception last Friday night where we also presented each senior with their K-State Athletics Varsity Ring.  Graduation is a great reminder that a fundamental objective of our goal of a World-Class Student-Athlete Experience is to provide all 450-plus of our student-athletes with the resources and opportunities to earn their degrees.  We have had a terrific fall here at K-State, and I am so proud of our coaches, staff and student-athletes for their continued hard work and focus as we build a Model Intercollegiate Athletics Program.

Let's get right to today's update beginning with a football and bowl update.
