With apologies to South Dakota, we all know this Saturday’s season opener is all about seeing what the new Wildcats look like and where all the pieces fit heading into next week’s huge game against Mississippi State. Fortunately, you don’t have to wait until kickoff since K-State Online managing editor Matt Hall joined us to share some inside information on this week’s podcast, including the fact Skylar Thompson will be the starting quarterback. We also got some injury updates on Elijah Sullivan (good) and Mike McCoy (absolutely terrible) and heard from Matt about the new energy and slightly changing philosophies of K-State’s new coordinators.
Finally, we had to take advantage of KSO’s recruiting knowledge (credit to Derek Young) and get the latest on K-State targets in both football and men’s basketball. Look for another basketball commit from Mario McKinney of St. Louis soon, and hopefully the ‘Cats can figure out how to land some much-needed running backs, particularly four-star Daniel Carter from Florida.
If you haven’t yet signed up for KSO, you’d be crazy not to take advantage of their free trial, good through Oct. 28 (the OU game) with the promo code “PurplePower.” Be sure to follow Matt on Twitter at @Matthew_D_Hall.
Editor’s note: We had some connection issues (probably my fault) so there are times on this podcast when you hear Matt and/or JT cutting out, as well as times when I edited out certain parts where they became impossible to understand. So if you hear the conversation jump ahead a few seconds without warning and what they said doesn’t make sense, that’s why. I’m sorry and will try to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
