Big 12 Week 9 round up, and Women's golf is outperforming KU.

The Wildcat defense has been very tough to run on.

Editors note: Due to technical difficulties your slate is a little lighter than usual, and later than usual. My apologies for the hold up.

Yesterday we welcomed a new writer to Bring on the Cats, jeffp171, who you know as the author of the Transitivity Rankings who got promoted to the big leagues after kicking butt over on the fan-posts. If you haven't checked his writing and methodology out yet, you should, as it's a pretty interesting read.

Also yesterday we found out via Pete Volk, that if you commit a penalty Bill Snyder can make you disappear.

PervisPascosTravellingCircus also brought you the crowd-sourcing poll, where-in he politely asks that you vote for the Cats. I suppose you could vote for Oklahoma State, but I don't know why you would want to willingly be wrong.

Finally, late last night Curtis Kitchen posted his Big 12 Power Rankings.

David Ubben has your best and worst from Week 9 in the Big 12.

Jake Trotter also has his Big 12 Week 9 rewind, where Matt McCrane gets Trotters nod as the special teams player of the week.

Following the shutout of Texas, Dante Barnett was named the Big 12 defensive player of the week. Barnett came up with seven tackles, four passes defensed, and at least three "should have been picks" drops. Hats off to Dante Barnett for leading a strong Kansas State defense last week.

Our friends over at Cowboys Ride for Free, Kansas State's next opponent, has a great poll on the heels of the Texas shut out, where they wonder if Okie Light will suffer the same fate as Texas.

Oklahoma States' official sports page has the press notes from Mike Gundy's press conference yesterday.

Kellis Robinett examines the Big 12 standings, and notes the emergence of West Virigina, and TCU as conference contenders only three seasons after they joined the conference.

Erik Horne of the Oklahoman has the Big 12 notebook for Week 9. Horne riffs on the Wickline lawsuit, as well as Gary Patterson and his thoughts on Trevone Boykin for Heisman.

Also, as our benevolent leader pointed out, the newest FCS poll is out and an old friend checks in at number 24.

Sophomore Madison Talley currently holds the 13th position at the Palmetto Intercollegiate, while overall the women's golf team sits in fifth place and one spot ahead of sixth place Kansas, writes James Schmidt of the Collegian. Hopefully the Wildcat team can put together a great round and make a run at a top three finish.
