Football

Topeka Capital-Journal -- K-State 'D' Starts Fresh: Austin Meek takes another look at the challenge facing co-defensive coordinators Vic Koenning and Chris Cosh in resurrecting K-State's defense this season.

The Manhattan Mercury -- Snyder takes same approach as he did in 1989: Mostly just a fluff piece with some quotes from various coaches expressing confidence that Snyder will do well again this time around...just maybe not right away.

The Manhattan Mercury -- Fitzgerald, Harold first line of defense for Cats: Joel Jellison takes a quick look at two players K-State is relying on in its quest to actually field a defense this season.

The Republican -- Kyle Havens to start at quarterback for for UMass: Havens is a junior who beat out a returning senior for the starting job.  Here are his thoughts on playing his first game in Manhattan:

"It will be the biggest crowd I've ever played in front of, by far, but that won't bug me. I'll just go out and play football," Havens said.

Volleyball

The Manhattan Mercury -- K-State volleyball falls to 0-2: After a furious rally from an 0-2 hole against No. 11 Minnesota on Friday night, K-State fell in four games to No. 16 Michigan.  It's probably the first time in a long time that the Cats have started 0-2, but against this kind of competition that's nothing to hang your head about.  K-State will play its first home match on Tuesday against UMKC.

Around the Big 12

Over at Corn Nation, Husker Mike has his roundup of tailgating in the Big 12.  I chimed in with my thoughts on Texas and Texas A&M in the comments because he had never been there.

The Ralphie Report's irish1611 has some musings on recruiting and initial eligibility, in light of two Colorado recruits failing to qualify this year.

The Fourum

Riding a unicycle will not get you laid, but neither will calling the Fourum about it get you laid.

I'm a guy, and as much as I like "Every Man a Wildcat," I don't want every Wildcat to be a man.

So I know you can get a DUI riding your bike or a lawnmower or anything motorized drunk. Can you get a DUI for a motorized wheelchair?

You call roof climbing extreme? Last year I climbed the parking lot garage crane and took a crap off it. If you don't believe me, ask the employees. They found it.
