<section class="s-news"><p>We're so close to opening day that there are literally only a handful of days left to Wildcat Football. BracketCat counts it down, with a pair of #7s, wide receiver Judah Jones and defensive back Danzel McDaniel, as well as #6, wide receiver Deante Burton.

Meanwhile, Jon Morse's preseason crowdsourcing continues into the third quarter of the season, and we get our first taste of real live FOOTBAW in the season debut of The National (although I don't know if Morse is calling it that anymore).</p>

<section class="s-news"><p>Kellis Robinett previews the 2014 football season, and concludes with a prediction of a 9-3 finish, good for third in the conference.

Arne Green of the Hutch News profiles Tyler Lockett and his quest to break his father's records. The buzz around Lockett is a pretty good indicator of what happens when talent meets hard work.

The KC Star decides K-State's top five all-time pass rushers. Darren Howard tops the list, but Ryan Mueller is not far behind.

In other news that is not really news, Snyder wants the Wildcats to bear down and not take things for granted.

Kevin Haskin visits with former Wildcat Jeff Schwinn as he takes over as Washburn's offensive coordinator. Schwinn has the experience of literally rebuilding a program. He was the head football coach at Chapman when a F3 tornado ran through the town in the summer of 2008, damaging the football facilities.

Reporting without further comment: K-State has been added to the list of schools being investigated by the US Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights (OCR) for handling of sexual violence under Title IX. K-State was not on the original list released in May.

This SE feature from Kelly McHugh talks up K-State's family angle, detailing how five members of the coaching staff are former K-State players and graduates themselves:  More than a Job.</p>

<section class="s-news"><p>The K-State Collegian's Sports notebook looks ahead to the rest of K-State's sports seasons.

In memoriam:  William Aye, a Manhattan native 1955 K-State graduate passed away on August 10. Aye was a member of K-State's 1951 NCAA finals basketball team and a member of the USOC men's basketball from 1969 to 1973.</p>
