We’ll start with the biggest news from yesterday. Beloved Kansas State icon and Hall of Fame coach Tex Winter passed at the age of 96. Derek Smith broke the news for Bring on the Cats.
Also yesterday, Derek made his triumphant return to Bring on the PodCats, teaming up with Luke Thompson to visit with Micah Allen from CRFF.
Obviously with the passing of Tex Winter, write ups about his time in the pros, and at Kansas State are all over the web. We don’t have enough time for me to list everyone, but I wanted to specifically highlight Richard Goldstein’s article on Tex in the New York Times. It’s worth the read.
