Lebron James is always a must-see attraction, but even more so now that he stabbed Cleveland in the back and formed a superteam in Miami with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. Love him or hate him, James always puts on a show, and tonight should be no different.
Not only does this game feature the NBA's new possible dynasty, but it also features a team that Kansas City almost had. When moving from Seattle, many thought the Sonics would move to Kansas City. Instead, the Sprint Center was not built fast enough, and Oklahoma City got a talented young team with future MVP Kevin Durant. Kansas City fans can watch both the most hyped team in recent history compete with a talented young team that should have been its own. At the very least, it should be a good game.
What was billed as a close contest and a battle for the Big 12 North (by local folk, anyway), was anything but as Nebraska absolutely rolled Kansas State in Manhattan last night. The final was 48-13, but the game wasn't even that close. Redshirt freshman Quarterback Tayler Martinez burned the Wildcat defense all night running for 241 yards and 4 touchdowns, including runs of 35, 40, and 80 yards for scores. But it wasn't just the Taylor Martinez show, the Nebraska line was opening up huge holes that yours truly could have run through and with Martinez's blazing speed the K-State defence didn't stand a chance. It's going to be a few tough years for Nebraska's opponents with this kid on the field.
On the other side of the ball, K-State's leading rusher Daniel Thomas could not get it going. Nebraska's "BlackShirts" defence held him to under 3 yards per carry. He had been averaging six yards/carry in their first 4 games. This caused problems as K State's passing attack has been suspect all year. After the game Coach Snyder said he was opening up competition at the Quarterback position this week.
Kansas State was rightfully embarrassed by their performance. As one Wildcat player noted, This one hurt. To have a HATED rival come into your home stadium and put the beat down on you is unacceptable. Rumors that the Wildcats also let the Huskers sleep with their girlfriends could not be substantiated. The only thing worse would be to lose to a terrible Jayhawk football team next week when they visit Lawrence.

K-State got to this point (undefeated and first in the North standings) the way it always does under Bill Snyder - running the ball, controlling the clock and not making mistakes. While the cats haven't beaten anyone impressive, they have executed on both sides of the ball all year long and should contend for the North in a weak year for the Big 12.
Most insiders predict Nebaska to win this game and the North, and for good reason. The Huskers finally have a playmaker under center in Taylor Martinez, and its offense has looked explosive at times this season. Despite losing all-world DT Ndamukung Song to the NFL, the defense is in typical Bo Pelini form.
Nebraska appears to be the better team from top to bottom, but don't count out the Wildcats. K-State has a hall-of-fame coach and will feed off of what should be a great home crowd. The game should remind us of the great Nebraska vs. Kansas State matchups from the late 90's and early 2000's. The winner of this game gains a big inside track to the North title, and with the Big 12 South being down, a shot at a Big 12 crown and BCS berth is not out of the question.
