K-State Slate: 10.17.14 - Patience marks Robinson's career

Yesterday was a slow day around here, and everyone was still hung over from the Royals huge victory.

No gimmicks, just news.

So there's a little football game tomorrow that could decide the Big 12 race, when K-State travels to Norman to take on the Sooners. Oklahoma pretty much owns the series 71-18-4. Since Bob Stoops' arrival, the Sooners have gone 9-2 against K-State and OU has won 89 home games in that time.

Our own Curtis Kitchen talked to our Sooner cousins over at Crimson and Cream Machine in their Opponent Q&A. Surprisingly, Kitchen picks OU to win. The Collegian's Adam Suderman had his own Q&A with Oklahoma columnist Jenni Carlson.

Less surprisingly, Berry Tramel of The Oklahoman also picks OU to win, and so does Guerin Emig of OU Sports Extra.

The EPSN(blog) crew seems less certain, suggesting that K=State can win if they lock down the Samaje Perine and the zone-read.

Andrew Gilman of FOXSports riffs on the three things OU must do to beat K-State.

DeMarcus Robinson has waited a long time for his chance to shine, but his patience is finally being rewarded, writes Emilio Rivera for the Collegian. Meanwhile, Austin Earl (also in the Collegian), notes the on-field intelligence of Curry Sexton has helped him emerge as the No. 2 receiver on the team. Not to be outdone by the offense, the defense has stepped up too, and Jonathan Truman overcame a couple of average games and according to Kellis Robinett, he has come into mid-season form now. Ken Corbitt describes Danzel McDaniel as K-State's "Hit Man" but he also has pass coverage skills.

According to Eric Bailey of the Tulsa World, OU's Dominique Alexander went to Booker T. Washington with Dante Barnett and Tyler Lockett, and the trio has been talking trash about this game all summer.

The USA Today preseason Coaches' Poll dropped yesterday. K-State is not currently ranked, but was one of the teams receiving votes. Kansas is 5th and Wichita State is 11th in the poll.

The volleyball team is confident, resilient and tough, and they have ridden that combination to a national ranking. The No. 25 Wildcats will take on undefeated No. 2 Texas at tomorrow night at Ahearn Field House.

The cross country team prepares for the post-season at the Pre-National Invitational in Terre Haute, Indiana. This will be the biggest meet of the season for the team.

K-State rowers will close out their fall season in Lawrence at the Jayhawk Jamboree. Other teams include host Kansas, as well as Oklahoma, Iowa and Tulsa.
