K-State Slate: 6.20.14: A Carson Coffman Sighting

Chris McGrath

We use the slow news cycle to catch up on some former Wildcats, and a bunch of current Wildcats are putting the student in student-athlete.

 

 

BracketCat's roster countdown is now up to #72, Aderius Epps.

Also, this happened:

 

 

 

Finally, the news you've all been waiting for! Season tickets go on sale Monday. Get your #EMAW on, support the team, etc.

 

 

Speaking of ticket sales, while K-State is nearing a sellout for the season, our friends in Morgantown are struggling, as ticket sales for West Virginia football are off about 8% from the 2013 season, and about 10% off the four-year average. In the recent Bring on the Podcast segment, there was talk about the temperature of Dana Holgorsen's seat, and maybe lukewarm ticket sales are the barometer here.

ESPN's Jake Trotter predicts the best and worst case scenarios for K-State's season. I think Trotter deserves some special kudos for the following lines:

Daniel Sams quarterbacks McNeese State to an upset of Nebraska in the opener. Kansas basketball gets bounced from the first round of the NCAA tournament.

He gets us. He really gets us!

Finally, we get a look at a former Wildcat, as Kellis Robinett catches up with Carson Coffman who is lighting up the scoreboard with the Iowa Barnstormers of the Arena Football League. His game seems well-suited to the pace of indoor football, and we can only hope he follows in the footsteps of another former Barnstormer, Kurt Warner.

 

 

Another former Wildcat is in the news. K-Stater Aaron Watkins has taken the first-round lead in the Air Capital Classic, with a 7-under-63 performance. The round included four birdies over a five-hole stretch on the back nine.

 

 

K-State has 28 student-athletes on the Big 12 Academic All-Rookie Team, an improvement by 11 over the previous season. K-State also tied for the conference lead in athletes with 4.0 GPAs.

SI's Stewart Mandel (who is leaving SI to take a gig at FoxSports) takes a comprehensive look at the new B1G and why the conference expanded as it did. Fans remain unhappy over the expansion, but Jim Delany does not care as long as the money continues to pour in. This confirms what we've always known around here: Jim Delany has ruined college football. Discuss.
