Bring on the Podcast with The Wichita Eagle/KC Star's Kellis Robinett

The K-State beat writer talks to us about where K-State football goes from here at quarterback and beyond, plus gives us some reason to believe Thursday's matchup with Baylor won't be a complete disaster.

Could we see young Alex Delton playing quarterback soon to help revive a struggling offense?

Doom and gloom is inevitable following an 0-4 start in Big 12 play destined to become 0-5 following a home game against the No. 2 team in the country this Thursday night. But the Wichita Eagle/KC Star's Kellis Robinett reminds us while the way we got here might be surprising and incredibly disappointing, the record really isn't even when you consider the roster Kansas State had at the beginning of the year. In fact, he predicted an 0-5 start, but that doesn't mean the 'Cats can't still finish the season strong and make a bowl game.

Kellis also agreed it's premature to talk about Bill Snyder's potential retirement anytime soon, even if the playcalling this season has been suspect at times. The bigger problem is the personnel, particularly in the passing game, and Kellis believes Alex Delton could be an acceptable answer at quarterback. We also touched on what might keep Baylor from a total rout and had a brief discussion about Kansas State basketball at the end of the podcast.

If you enjoy Kellis's valuable insights into the program, you can find more at the websites of either The Wichita Eagle or The Kansas City Star. You can also follow him on Twitter @kellisrobinett.

Note: Just to clear up any confusion, please be aware this podcast was recorded last Wednesday, which is significantly further in advance than usual. Fortunately, not a lot has changed, but there are some references to news that broke early last week, and Iowa State looks like it may be a more formidable foe than expected.
