    When nature calls...With just seconds left in regulation and K-State lined up to inbound the ball and run a last second play, Bill Walker was overcome with an urge too strong to control. he stepped to the sideline and relieved himself with several towells. KSU lost to Oregon in overtime, 80-77.

    I have mixed feelings about this photo running in a newspaper, especially a paper of the Star's stature.

    Why would you publish that?

    Part of me says it's a legit representation of a key moment in the game -- maybe this was affecting the guy's play or something.

    But the more I think about it, the more I'm wondering why the hell this ran. Ain't like this is the first time it's happened this year.

    Don't know if it ran in the actual paper, that's from a photo gallery of the game.

    A web site photo gallery is publishing the photo. Pathetic.

    It's Kansas. Not much goes on there I guess.

    Sucks to be the student assistant in charge of towels.

    I also fail to see the news value.

    I imagine they posted it with no other reason but to try to shock and get web site hits.
