Kansas State's game against UMKC last night provided us with a litany of links so let's get right to them.
First, we welcomed a new writer to the staff, TheBigE, who wrote an awesome game preview of the UMKC-KSU game. Following the game I recapped a closer than expected game from a spunky Kangaroo team. Sandwiched in between was Jon Morse's breakdown of the AP and Coaches Top 25 for Men's Basketball (yes, it was a basketball day at Bring on the Cats).
However, the most important article written at Bring on the Cats was written by TB, and had nothing to do with sports at all. Cancer is something that has affected my life very intimately as I know multiple people who have suffered from such a terrible disease. My heart goes out to TB, and his friend Aaron Kennedy. Please go read TB's article about Aaron, and send up good thoughts and prayers (if that's your thing). TB please let Aaron know that while I've never met him I wish him godspeed in his recovery and know that you and he are both in my prayers.
