Musings at the mid-week:
■ Kansas State will observe Fan Appreciation Day on Saturday when it plays TCU in football.
■ Is it possible for anyone else to welcome people to K-State? Attendants make that a steady refrain.
■ Actually, the promotion involves giveaways that can be accessed on social media.
■ Perhaps no one will appreciate the K-State experience more than Gary Patterson. The former TCU coach will return to his alma mater, where he was a walk-on contributor for Jim Dickey’s scout teams.
