If you haven't already, go check out yesterday's slate. Jon does an excellent job of concisely detailing why Brady Hoke should have been relieved of his coaching duties immediately.

Morse also unboxes the polls for our benefit, and basically finds a four way tie for first place. Something has to give soon right? RIGHT? We are a month out from the committee's first official poll release, so it will be interesting to see how much movement occurs in the AP and the Coaches leading up to the "official" release

As fanshotted by Morse and developed by Ryan Patrick, Denzel McDaniel A.K.A. Freak Nasty utterly destroys Aaron Jones. As Wildcat fans it is your civic duty to go watch this as many times as possible.

Lastly, the best named staff member (PervisPascosTravellingCircus) brings us the crowd-sourcing for the BroTech game.

Tyler Lockett was a bad, bad man Saturday where, as a returner, he scored a 58-yard touchdown, and almost had another punt return for a touchdown if not for a holding penalty. This led to Lockett winning the Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week. It is the second week in a row that a Kansas State player has won a weekly award. Also on Saturday, Lockett passed his Uncle Aaron Lockett and moved into third place in receiving yards trailing Jordy Nelson and, of course, his dad Kevin Lockett.

Jake Trotter rewinds the Big 12 weekend, while Max Olsen breaks down what we learned over a busy Week Five in the Big 12. noting that the Wildcats are looking mighty stout against the run.

From Monday's teleconference, Kellis Robinett has the other Big 12 coaches reaction to Kansas firing Charlie Weis, noticeably absent from his quotes on Weis' firing is one Bill Snyder.

On the recruiting front, K-State commit Denzel Goolsby is tearing up the Wichita City League, rushing for over 100 yards in all four games, while only carrying the ball more than 20 times once. This performance earned Goolsby the third spot on catchitkansas.com's top 10 September performances list.

While he's only a sophomore, Marcus Foster will be looked too as the leader during this upcoming basketball season. He proved himself as an All-Conference talent a year ago, and people are starting to take notice, including Ricky O'Donnell, who previews Marcus Foster and the Wildcats as SBNation begins their preview of the Top 25 basketball teams.

Meanwhile, Scott Gleeson has been breaking down/projecting the field of 68 way to early and has Kansas State in as the 28th ranked team in the tournament.

As anyone who has lived in Manhattan can tell you, the sound of thunder on a clear day isn't actually thunder, but rather artillery being fired from Fort Riley. Last week that artillery may have been fired by your Kansas State Men's Basketball team, who took a trip to train with their partner unit the 1-7 Field Artillery.

Matt Green became K-State's 30th player to win an individual golf tournament, and the first under first year head coach Grant Robbins. Green finished 3 under par to win the Jack Nicklaus Invitational. Overall, the Wildcats finished ninth our of a twelve team tournament.

In Women's Golf news, the women's team sits in second place, only three shots back of Missouri at the Johine Imes Invitational. Carly Ragains also sits in second place only two shots back of Missouri Tiger, Alina Rogers.

After a disappointing five set loss to Baylor, the volleyball team travels down the river to the flaw on the kaw Kansas to take on a Jayhawk team fresh off their own disappointing conference opening loss to Oklahoma. After last season's disappointing Big 12 play, the Wildcats need to come out strong and take it to the Jayhawks.

The Iowa State Daily has the only Big 12 Volleyball power rankings that I've seen, and has Kansas State ranked at number 4, which seems about right even though the 'Cats need to prove they belong towards to top of the Big 12 by winning matches against teams who they are clearly better than, *cough* Baylor *cough*.
