As noted yesterday in the comments, this bye week is such a tease. And with that means just enough stories to whet your football appetite.
Yesterday at Bring on the Cats, we brought you the first Prep Update for the 2016 season. This is a new weekly series that is geared at giving you a bit of a look as how our current commits are doing in their last season of high school football.
2016 K-State football has possibly the youngest two-deep of any year during Bill Snyder’s tenure in Manhattan. But two young guys are stuck being odd men out at their positions (Corbitt, Capital-Journal), but when put in to action Dalvin Warmack gave a solid case for increased usage (Robinett, via KC Star).
While the offense was struggling integrating new faces all over, the defense boasts multiple returners at every position, including getting an instant boost from the return of Dante Barnett for his sixth season (Robinett, via Wichita Eagle). Even with so many returning guys, the defense still got a solid outing from one of it’s few new additions, as D.J. Reed, almost quietly, played well in his first start (Corbitt, C-J). But even with a solid outing, there is room to improve, and the defense will look to grow from their debut (Jellison, Mercury).
If you were curious to see what your favorite employee at a Kansas university makes (sans coaches, except for WSU), then the Wichita Eagle has your back. Just pick a school, type a name, and start feeling bad that they get paid so little (or too much, in some cases).
