Football is almost here, but other sports are gearing up for the upcoming season too.

BracketCat's countdown is almost in the home stretch, with #38, long snapper Dalton Harman. Jon Morse recapped all the media reaction to Big 12 Media Days, and JT VanGilder and Derek Smith riffed on K-State's position condition for the upcoming season, with a look at the defensive line.

Keep your eyes open for more content later today.



Coverage of Big 12 Media Days continues as Kelly McHugh has the SportsExtra take, ESPN's Big 12 blog crew recaps the event with their Day 2 roundtable ,and notes the biggest takeaways for each team. Also, Bill Snyder still likes Taco Bell, but maybe not every day.

Berry Tramel logs observations from his trip to Media Days, including a rambling aside on RC Cola. But this has to be the money quote:  "The Kansas Jayhawk was the worst."

Oh, and this happened:


On a more sober note, former K-State football player and politician John "JB" Littlejohn passed away recently. A memorial will be held Saturday.



K-State tennis has a new head coach. Danielle Steinberg, formerly of McNeese State, is the seventh head coach for Wildcats tennis, and was the Southland Conference 2014 Coach of the Year. Under her direction, McNeese State had its first winning season in a decade.



K-State track and field athletes added to their accomplishments this week. Thirteen athletes as well as the women's team received academic honors from the US Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).



Big Game Bob took a swipe at Nick Saban after the Alabama head coach blamed the team's Sugar Bowl loss on lack of motivation. As pissing contests go, this one promises entertainment, if nothing else.

Also, apropos our thoughts on whether Snyder will actually get to lift the playoff trophy, we now have championship odds for any team with half a chance.
