<section class="s-intro"><p class="slate-intro">With real live football--FOOTBAW!--just days away now, the Slate is going to be packed with news and linkie thingies. This is your chance to at least pretend you actually read it, and to help you achieve this goal, the Slate will now be a daily feature. Yes. Weekend Edition Slate. You heard it here first.</p>

<section class="s-news"><p>We're officially into the single digits for BracketCat's countdown. Yesterday, he featured a pair of #10s, Donnie Starks and Lucas Munds. Meanwhile, Curtis Kitchen trolls everyone with his open expression of gratitude for that visionary coach, Ron Prince.

In the Absolutely-Must-Read category is this SB Nation Longform from Bill Connelly: Blueprint for a Rebuild, featuring six coaches who have rebuilt college football programs, including Bill Snyder. I'm not sure you can even say the word "rebuild" without invoking Snyder's name.</p>

<section class="s-news"><p>FOXSports' Sean Keeler profiles Ryan Muellerthe character with character. Keeler goes on to note that Mueller may be the most Bill Snyder player ever. That's a point worthy of discussion. Who is the most Snyder player ever?

The Capital-Journal's Top 25 retrospective continues, this time with No. 18, Tim Bisel's report on the painful 2005 loss to Nebraska, a game that can only be described as a comedy of errors.

The Coloradoan reports on Collin Klein's return to K-State, this time as part of Bill Snyder's coaching staff. His role is undefined, but everyone is happy to have him back, if only as a motivational tool.

Is Ohio State's loss K-State's gain? With the Big Ten getting shoved to the bottom of the pack of playoff contenders, the Chicago Sun-Times breaks down the contenders with a shoutout to K-State. But I'm mostly just linking this article because the term "man-mannequin" is used to describe Kliff Kingsbury.

The ESPN (blog)'s Brandon Chatmon updates the K-State position battle at running back, concluding that no single running back is likely to get the nod this season.

Finally, the mothership's Jason Kirk details how the playoffs will work and has K-State in the Russell Athletic Bowl against Clemson. That's your daily dose of DISRESPECT right there.</p>
