The podcast is finally back from hiatus, and before we get into football, we wanted to talk about the newest program at Kansas State. Soccer coach Mike Dibbini graciously called in to tell us about his team, which kicked off its season last weekend by scoring its first goal in a 3-1 loss at St. Louis and earning its first point with a 0-0 draw at SIU Edwardsville. My little sister and three-time Big 12 soccer champion at Oklahoma State Ellen Glasgow also joined us to talk about what this means for soccer players in Kansas, and coach Dibbini told us about his plans for growing the program.

K-State plays its home opener Sept. 16 vs. Northern Iowa during "Wildcat Weekend" and standing room only tickets are still available. Football starts its home slate the next day against Florida Atlantic, and tickets to the following Saturday's game against Missouri State will earn you $3 tickets to soccer games against Oral Roberts on Friday and South Dakota on Sunday. If you haven't already, you can get involved now by joining the Founders Club at either the $50, $100 or $1,000 membership level. The 'Cats will head north this weekend to play at Oakland (Mich.) on Friday at 6 p.m. and at Central Michigan on Sunday at noon.

You can keep up with the team on Twitter at @KStateSOC and follow @CoachDibbini for more updates.
