Tuesday's are becoming one of the busier days here on Bring on the Cats, and that was again the case yesterday. Curtis Kitchen ranked all
Twelve Ten Big 12 teams, and you'll only need one guess to figure out whose on bottom.
High praise continues to roll in from Auburn regarding the treatment they received while visiting our beautiful campus in the Flint Hills. Most recently Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs penned a letter to the editor of the Collegian praising the fans for the great atmosphere, and treatment of visiting Auburn fans even in defeat.
The AP has your Texas Tech-Kansas State preview, and notes that last week the 'Cats threw for a season high 263 yards. I'm willing to bet that we won't have to throw for that much to beat Tech and their porous run defense.
While Tech's run defense is terrible, the team overall has a penalty problem. The Red Raiders lead the conference with 422 yards in penalty yards, which should give K-State a great advantage if they play with the discipline they displayed during the Auburn game.
KWCH.com has a recap of Head Coach Bill Snyder's press conference, where they focus on how K-State will defend Tech's passing attack. Speaking of the passing attack, it will be that much tougher to defend should Davis Webb be able to play, and as Tommy Magelssen of the Dallas Morning News reports, he was practicing in full pads Tuesday.
Earlier this week there was a discussion about the K-State offensive line and how K-State uses more agile linemen than big bruisers, and this story on Cody Whitehair's switch to left tackle helps illustrate this point.
In recruiting news, the Dallas Morning News has a nice profile on Arico Evans, QB for Hillcrest high school in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, who Kansas State has targeted as an "Athlete" and is competing with schools like California, and New Mexico.
K-statesports.com has your match notes for tonight's upcoming match between Kansas State and Kansas. The game will be streamed online at ESPN 3.
Matt Green did it Monday, and K-State freshman golfer Connie Jaffrey said "anything you can do I can do better" and went ahead and won her tournament the Johnie Imes Invitational. Jaffrey's performance also helped lift the women's golf team to second place and a school record 14 under par.
Finally, as many of you have heard (maybe you haven't) the Royals won a playoff game for the first time since 1985 in an instant classic which made baseball fans across the country jealous that the Royals got to play in such an awesome game. Personally, last nights game was the second best game I've ever seen, second only to the Colorado Rockies play in game in the 2007 season, that sparked their epic Rocktober movement. Playoff baseball is special and for all you Royal's fans who have waited almost three decades to experience it, soak it up and enjoy the run.
