Kansas State unveils Big 12 Championship rings
Although Kansas State fans are likely still reeling from last night’s shocking home football loss to North Dakota State, they can at least smile a little bit this morning at their shiny, new Big 12 Championship rings from last season’s improbable co-title run.
Under first-year coach Bruce Weber, the Wildcats finished 14-4 in the Big 12 and tied with in-state rival Kansas for the best mark in the conference and a share of the title. The Kansas State athletics Twitter account unveiled the rings earlier this week:

While the Wildcats aren’t expected to compete for the Big 12 title this season with the loss of seniors Rodney McGruder and Jordan Henriquez -- and the loss of transfer Angel Rodriguez -- they do return key role players Will Spradling, Thomas Gipson and Shane Southwell.
