Kevin Kietzman's warning that basketball coach Bob Huggins might ditch Kansas State for West Virginia? Prophetic. His shameless defense of his alma mater K-State hiring Frank Smith, a basketball coach of dubious character? Homerism at its finest. This year, the city's top-rated jock banterer (according to Arbitron) distinguished himself as more than a wonk hiding behind a mic. By broadcasting his Between the Lines from the glassed-in, skyboxlike sound booth at the sports bar known as 810 Zone on the Plaza, he's made himself accessible. Listeners who don't like him know where to find him. Our recommendation: Ponder his outrageous points over a beer or two. Often, he makes a lot of sense.
