K-State Slate: 11.14.14 - Baylor is K-State's biggest fan

New, 20 comments

Not a lot of football news on this bye week Friday, but hooptyball is here, and there's plenty of non-revenue action this weekend too.

Here's Jon Morse and the Week 12 College Football TV Schedule, in all its glory.

A combination of dropping out of college playoff contention and having a bye week has slowed Kansas State football news to a trickle.

Joe Hubener describes his time with the team as a journey and is learning from his experiences.

It turns out Baylor is the Wildcats' biggest fan, and that's worth its weight in entertainment potential.

Basically, beating Kansas State is Baylor's only real chance of cracking the final four of the inaugural playoff rankings. Personally, I'm hoping the guys in purple can flip the script on the Bears in Waco, which might just begin to make up for 2012.

Meanwhile, Blair Kerkhoff sounds off on the difficulties of scheduling neutral-site games, especially at Arrowhead Stadium.

As Kansas State gets ready to tip off, Kellis Robinett previews the Southern Utah game.

This season, the team has every intention of starting the season with a win. Obviously, last year's opening loss to Northern Colorado still rankles, but luckily for the Wildcats, this year's Big Sky opponent is coming off a 2-27 season and history is not likely to repeat itself this time around.

The Jeff Mittie era of Kansas State will begin officially tonight when the Wildcats take on SIUE in their first game of the season. He's hoping to keep things simple and to continue the form the team showed in their second exhibition game, a 50-point drubbing of Newman.

The cross country team is getting ready for the Midwest Regionals. The women's 6K begins first, followed closely by the men's 8K. The teams will be competing against Kansas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and defending Big 12 champion Iowa State. Kansas State's finish will determine if the team is part of the NCAA Championships.

The men's golf team has signed four new players for the 2015-16 season: Andrew Beckler (Washburn Rural), Ben Fernandez (Carroll; Southlake, Texas), Jeremy Gandon (Charpay, France (believed to be the first international player to sign with the golf team)), and Roland Massimino (New Hope Solebury; Lumberville, Pennsylvania. Side note: Massimino's grandfather was the basketball head coach at Villanova in 1985 when those Wildcats won the NCAA Tournament).
