    25 Apr 2015 | 9:45 pm
    KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) – Kansas State coach Bill Snyder has been on the sidelines for enough spring games to know the difference between a crisp showing and a sloppy one. The Wildcat’s game Saturday, which was moved to Sporting Park in suburban Kansas City due to renovations at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, fell into the latter category. “When the fans leave early,” Snyder said, “that tells you that we were not very good.” The first-team purple squad came away with a 55-24 win, but the Wildcats collectively turned the ball over four times and had several…

I’ve heard conflicting stories.”…

A statement from the Baltimore Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 3 on Saturday called Batts’ comments “politically driven, and in direct contrast to the commissioner’s own request not to jump to any conclusions.” Batts said Friday that Gray should have been buckled in a seat belt in a police van and officers failed to give him medical attention…
