Plus some more football season previews as we head into the weekend.

Soccer balls in Kansas; that’s about the best I’ve got for you

After kicking off their inaugural campaign 0-1-1 last week, the SoccerCats return to action this weekend with a pair of games in Michigan. Game one will be Friday evening against the Oakland Golden Grizzlies in Rochester, MI, while game two will be Sunday at noon against the Central Michigan Chippewas in Mount Pleasant, MI.

Our own Luke Thompson was able to sit down with K-State head soccer coach Mike Dibbini for the first Bring On The Podcast of the fall.


BracketCat continued our countdown to kickoff with a trio of #9’s yesterday, stud LB Elijah Lee, backup punter Mitch Lochbihler, and WR Byron Pringle who comes into the 2016 with big expectations after a huge Spring game performance. BracketCat then kicked off our Thursday morning with #8 Joe Hubener. Also yesterday, TB took a look around the Big 12 with his referendum.

Our buddies over at Cowboys Ride for Free posted their matchup preview for the K-State vs. OSU game later this November. They predicted a 1-point win for the Cowboys in Manhattan, but they called us “Kansas” once during the write-up, so that prediction must be thrown out.

Over at the K-State Collegian, Andrew Hammond posted his big predictions for the 2016 season, and prediction number 4 might be the boldest of the bunch.

K-State Sports has announced the radio affiliate list for the 2016 season, as well as the schedule for the Bill Snyder Show.

Men’s Basketball

Kellis Robinett, via the KC Star, reports that Bruce Weber thinks that the trip to Europe was a good thing, and helped his team grow closer together. He was especially impressed with the play of freshman Xavier Sneed, but senior Welsey Iwundu was unimpressive on the trip. Avery Osen at the K-State Collegian also wrote about the trip to Europe.

Cross Country

Yesterday at Bring on the Cats Jon dropped a season outlook for the men’s and women’s cross country teams. The men will look to gain some ground in the standings, while the women will be battling key injuries.
