Bring on the Podcast with The Mercury's Joel Jellison

New, comments

The Mercury's men's basketball writer brings us a nice change of pace during the football bye week and does his best to break down all the Wildcat newcomers heading into a season with low expectations.

Does this guy have what it takes to become the leading scorer K-State may need him to be this season?

These are dark times for Kansas State football, so rather than spend some more time rehashing all the Wildcats' problems, we brought on our friend Joel Jellison to talk about basketball. He broke down what little we know about all the K-State newcomers and what roles they might play for a team doing everything it can to keep last season in the past.

We also talked about new roles for returners Wesley Iwundu and Justin Edwards, as well as what we can expect from D.J. Johnson when he finally gets back on the court. The exhibition schedule begins Friday against Emporia State at Bramlage Coliseum, and Joel says many obstacles await in a difficult nonconference schedule. Ideally, the 'Cats will stay together and be much better by the time they get to conference play, where Joel says they'll find a Big 12 just as good, if not better than a year ago.

Be sure to check out Joel's work at The Mercury's website and if you're not already following him on Twitter, you can fix that by finding him @joel_jellison.
