Remember that gifted Kansas State team with Michael Beasley two seasons ago? Remember the one that was relegated to the NIT last season? This season, Kansas State is figuring out how it will be remembered. The Wildcats have taken some impressively long strides recently. Kansas State was picked in preseason polls to finish around the middle of a talented Big 12. A narrow loss to Mississippi and a victory against Dayton in Puerto Rico had some thinking the Wildcats would be just fine.

It's more of a faraway vision to Billy Cosh now: at the end of a country road, Arundel's football field, the quarterback's canvas under the hazy white glow of a Friday night. That was where the state of Maryland's all-time leading passer painted his legacy and where possibilities seemed as limitless as the magic from his right arm. "I miss it, you know?" said the 21-year-old Cosh, a 2009 Arundel graduate now on scholarship at the University of Houston with two years of eligibility remaining.

Former Arundel quarterback Billy Cosh, the all-time leading passer in Maryland high school history, has left Kansas State. Cosh, who enrolled at KSU last January and redshirted his freshman season, plans to enroll at James Madison. "I'm pleased that Billy will have the opportunity to get on the field quickly in a program that features the passing game," Kansas State coach Bill Snyder said in a news release. "Billy is obviously a dear friend and a great young man. He loved Manhattan and our program and players but simply felt by transferring he could gain more immediate playing time.

The uplifting sounds of gospel music provide Ravens rookie inside linebacker Arthur Brown a release from the grind of football. The second-round draft pick from Kansas State is bespectacled and soft-spoken, cultivating a professorial look off the field as he frequently wears a tie, slacks and dress shoes. During his spare time, the 23-year-old can be found playing the piano or whipping up his favorite meal of salmon and sweet potatoes. Brown's personality away from the game, though, is a contrast to his aggressive nature on the field.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Coppin State ended a weary week on the road in the Big Eight Conference with a gutty, inspired effort last night, but the Eagles still will board a plane for Baltimore today in search of their first victory.Unlike their first two lopsided losses last week at Kansas and Missouri, though, the Eagles found themselves in a crunch-time battle with Kansas State. But after never trailing for the game's first 34 minutes, the Eagles wilted down the stretch, scoring only 10 points in the final 11 minutes, as Kansas State rallied for a66-56 victory before 9,882 at Bramlage Coliseum.

Winter break will be an especially happy time around the Cosh household this year. Arundel quarterback Billy Cosh will have just graduated early from high school, and his father, Chris, will be putting the finishing touches on his first season as Kansas State's assistant head coach and co-defensive coordinator. Soon after, father and son will reunite as coach and player. Billy Cosh committed to Kansas State on Sunday, picking the Wildcats over offers from Kentucky, East Carolina and Towson.

Antonio Barton had only a handful of Division I basketball programs interested in him three years ago coming out Notre Dame Prep in Massachusetts, where he spent a post-grad year after playing his senior season at Lake Clifton. When Barton announced his intentions to leave Memphis last month and finish his college career elsewhere, the 6-2 point guard from Baltimore said that some two dozen schools contacted him about transferring. Barton, who reportedly has narrowed his list down to four schools, said last week that he expects to make his decision Sunday.

Midwest is toughest Dom Amore Hartford Courant The toughest? Louisville's Midwest. The Cardinals have Duke at No. 2, Michigan State at No. 3, Missouri at No. 9. Memphis, which tore through Conference USA, is a No. 6. Next, I'd go with the East because Miami, the first team to win the ACC regular-season and tournament titles and not get a No. 1, is the No. 2 behind Indiana here. Big East team Marquette is at No. 3, and Syracuse is at No. 4. Kansas may be starting in Kansas City in the South, but it has Georgetown in its bracket at No. 2. Florida and Michigan, another former No. 1, are behind them.

Collin Klein may play quarterback for Kansas State, but on Friday he attended Johnny U. In town to receive the 2012 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, Klein spent part of the day viewing Unitas' memorabilia at the Sports Legends Museum, kibitzing with John Unitas Jr. and several old Colts, and visiting the scupture of the late Hall of Fame quarterback outside M&T Bank Stadium, where he reverently touched the toe of the 13-foot statue. "This is amazing. He [Unitas] was so special," said Klein, the 26 t h recipient of the award and a rare unanimous choice of the six-member selection committee.

Long before he began recruiting future NBA No. 2 draft pick Michael Beasley for Kansas State, Dalonte Hill said he grasped something important about the player's personality. Beasley, Hill noticed, wasn't responding well to college coaches' incessant pitches — to all the phone calls and letters certain to find their way to young basketball prodigies such as Beasley. "People didn't know this about his recruitment, but if you pressure him, he goes into a shell," said Hill, a former coach in the D.C. Assault summer-league program in which Beasley starred.
