  • Jeffrey Martin gets some feedback from the players regarding their new relationship with Coach.
  • Cole Manbeck from the Collegian makes some nice points in his article regarding Snyder's offense:
    "It seems every day I hear someone say that Carson Coffman, Collin Klein or Joseph Kassanavoid aren’t Snyder’s typical mold of quarterbacks, that they don’t fit into the offensive system.

    And they are right — if they are speaking about a nine-year span from 1997 to 2005.

    But many tend to forget that when Snyder arrived at K-State in 1989, he heavily used a pro offense that relied on spreading the field and attacking defenses through the air.

    Guys like Chad May, Matt Miller and Brian Kavanaugh had great success for Snyder from 1993 to 1996."
  • K-State picked up a commitment last night from Wichita Northwest running back Demarcus Robinson.
    Robinson was an Eagle All-Class and All-Metro player last season, rushing for 1,907 yards and 24 touchdowns in 11 games for Northwest. His 1,693 yards in the regular season was the sixth highest total in City League history.

    Robinson said he had eight scholarship offers, including Louisville and Missouri.
    Here's nine minutes of Demarcus Robinson in action from his Junior season at Northwest:

    • Rick Dean from the Topeka Capital Journal has a nice piece on AJ Morris.
      The Wildcats’ ace has won every game he’s started, posting an 8-0 record, and leads the nation in victories. He needs only one more win to tie the single-season school record, which has been accomplished five different times in program history.
    • More importantly, it's "Quarter Hot Dog Night" at the Frank tonight, so if you want to put down a few and watch the 'Cats take on Texas A&M, feel free to do so. The game starts at 6:30 PM CST, and the guys could use your help against the #15 Aggies.

    • I love this. Some of you guys may not, but please indulge me. I find these to be hilarious.
      To the K-State groundskeepers: I was hoping maybe we could get some pest control out here because I live on Goodnow 3, out by the big sycamore tree, and I’m pretty sure there’s a dragon trying to get in my room. There’s a big hole in my screen and I see weird things trying to get in at night.
      Christian yoga? As opposed to non-Christian yoga?
      Dear Collegian: I didn’t get laid last night because you spelled my girlfriend’s name wrong.

    • It appears that the train wreck that's become the Blair Irvin article comments section has gotten worse. I know that these people probably aren't the characters involved in this mess, but damn, this is funny stuff. Huge props to Coach S. for this gem. Top shelf stuff right here:
      I do not condone these actions. Any man should never lay a hand on a computer. I had eggs with my toast this mornining but will be recruiting later via the twitter bug. The team I have now will compete with Baylor for the lower tier of the MAC league. Where is Eddie Nealy when we need him. My toothpaste is acrylic....
