Kansas State seems to have earned respect even in losing to Stanford.

Yesterday Luke Thompson recapped Kansas State Soccer’s road trip in Nebraska, and broke down the Wildcats draw against Creighton, and their 1-Nil victory over Nebraska-Omaha.

Big 12 helmet stickers are back, and as usual the stickers are dominated by the Big 12 offense, however one defender did earn a sticker. Elijah Lee was rewarded with a powercat sticky for his career-best 12 tackles in the Stanford game. (Mitch Sherman, ESPN.com)

Moral victories count in the win column, right? Wrong, but the Wildcats can still hold their heads high following their game with Stanford, as they played fantastic defense and showed just enough promise on offense to make fans believe the ship can be righted. (Steward Mandel, Fox Sports)

Campusinsiders.com released their week one rankings of all 128 teams, and even though Kansas State fell to Stanford, the Wildcats check in at #38 only 9 spots behind fellow week one losers Oklahoma. (Dave Miller, Campus Insiders’)

The collegian also released their week one Big 12 power rankings and following a big win over Notre Dame, Texas takes the top spot. (Riley Gates, The Collegian)

The recent uptick in field goal returns for a touchdown (or kick-sixes) have the Wildcats, and their special teams units on high alert. (Ken Corbitt, Topeka Journal)

It’s arguably the most maddening penalty call in all of college football. Targeting. Fans are unhappy, coaches are unhappy, and there never appears to be any rhyme or reason to why the calls are made. (Jon Johnston, Corn Nation)
