Most of yesterday's content focused on last night's contest against Bradley Braves. Check out TheBigE's pre-game preview, and while I usually don't link the game thread it's worth checking out just for the snark. And boy did we bring the snark during that game.

In recruiting news, Reggie Walker a three-star DE from Ponchatoula, LA plans to take an official visit to Kansas State on January 16th, while Bryce Balous, a three-star DB, flipped his commitment to Oklahoma State. This doesn't come as much of a surprise since Balous grew up in Oklahoma.
