K-State Slate: 8.13.14 - Lockett named first-team SI pre-season All-American

I hope they didn't just jinx Tyler Lockett.

BracketCat gets to #18 in his countdown, Brogan Barry.

More from the Capital-Journal archives: one we missed last week, a Bob Hentzen column from December 30, 1993, on K-State's win over Wyoming in the Copper Bowl, and a pair of items by Kevin Haskin and Pete Goering from December 5, 1998, which you probably don't want to read but should anyway.

Sports Illustrated announced their pre-season All-American team, including one Tyler Deron Lockett at All-Purpose (rather than wide receiver).

The Wichita Falls Times Record News spitballs their pre-season bowl predictions, and has K-State headed to the Russell Athletic Bowl against Miami. (Personally, while my sights are obviously higher, getting into the Russell is a nice consolation if the season doesn't play out like we planned... because their social media team will engage us non-stop for a month, and they're awesome.)

Kelly McHugh writes about the Lockett legacy.

Ken Corbitt reports on Will Davis and his readiness to take over at middle linebacker.

Finally, Kellis Robinett writes about Collin Klein and his adjustment to coaching. If you thought he was a coach on the field in 2011 and 2012, you'll be stunned to discover how much he's learned in the last month.

The television schedule for the Big 12-SEC Challenge has been released, and K-State's December 6 meeting with Tennessee will take place at 2:15 CT on ESPN2. The Wildcats get the spotlight for their game; the previous night, Kansas and Missouri will both be playing at the same time. Heehee.

It may be time for you to start getting excited about Justin Edwards. After dropping 15 and 14 in the first two games of the Athletes in Action tour, Edwards exploded for a game-high 24 last night as AIA knocked off Latvia University 99-93. Edwards now leads the team with 17.3 points per game on the tour, with one last game tonight against The Barons. Brandon Boldin added three points, all from the stripe.

What is this? It looks remarkably like the first weekly notes release from the volleyball office. Featured: the team's leadership council, dominated by sophomores. Also, Suzie Fritz on the team's summer work ethic, and a note on Saturday's Purple-White scrimmage, which is at 7pm at Ahearn. Free admission. GO.
