K-State Slate: 9.9.10

Football

Run to the ball and tackle.  That's probably a pretty good basic philosophy for a defense.

After an injury forced him to redshirt last year, Aubrey Quarles is back in action for the Wildcats.

Bryce Brown's dad, Arthur Brown, Sr., is considering a lawsuit against Tennessee and head football coach Derek Dooley to recover the cost of Bryce having to pay his way at K-State after Dooley refused to release him.  I generally don't advocate threatening lawsuits as a way to get what you want, but at some point Dooley's gotta wonder if this stand is worth it.

K-State checks in at No. 9.  OK, so that's in Dr. Saturday's BlogPoll ballot, which is based only on performance thus far and dispenses almost any pretense and using preseason expectations.  Oh, you beat UCLA?  That's better than the 80 percent of the country that played Sun Belt or FCS teams.

Other

After benching starter Kale Pick last week, Turner Gill will start his backup, Jordan Webb, against Georgia Tech.  The trainwreck continues.

Finally, if you're in Manhattan and can get to campus tomorrow around 11:30 a.m., I will be joining a panel discussion on the media's coverage of conference realignment this summer.  The panel will include Tim Fitzgerald of Powercat Illustrated/GoPowercat.com and Austin Meek, the K-State beat writer for the Topeka Capital-Journal.  It will be held as part of Steve Smethers' Mass Communications in Society class, at 11:30 a.m. in Umberger Hall 105.
