K-State Slate: 9.19.11

Once again, it's Monday morning and I still owe you a postgame reaction post. That will be along this evening.

The headline for this story may be a bit hyperbolic. While it was definitely nice to see a shutout and, just as important, to limit Kent State to fewer than 200 total yards, this team has still played exactly zero decent offenses this year. So I'm not sure we can yet say that this defense is "for real."

We're still relying on Collin Klein's legs to get the job done, and still don't really know how successful he'll be throwing the ball.

Arthur Brown returns to Miami as the unquestioned leader of K-State's defense. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. CDT.

Haskin gets in on the "sources" game in conference realignment and estimates a possible merger among the leftover Big 12 and Big East schools.

Notice how all the reports yesterday about how Texas was looking west came out of ... Texas? Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News reports that Texas and the Pac-12 is nowhere near a done deal, that the Pac-12 would take the Oklahoma schools without Texas, again mentions the possibility of the Kansas schools joining with Oklahoma, and reiterates that the Pac-12 doesn't need Texas. I hate to give everyone hope again, but it's an interesting development.

The Oregon blog, Addicted to Quack, also believes the Pac-12 cannot accept Texas on anything less than the Pac-12's terms. Reading this just makes me sad on a lot of different levels.
