These are desperate times in Manhattan...

Just give Will Geary the Piesman already.

Luke Thompson sat down with Frogs O War's CoachMelissa for a wide-ranging conversation on TCU, their offensive and defensive weapons, and on their new home in the Big 12. It's all in the latest installment of Bring on the Podcast. Don't miss it!

Luke was busy yesterday. After the podcast, he teamed up with Jon Morse to bring us some much-anticipated Wednesday FEPO action. They're previewing at least two games where real victory is only possible if neither team wins. Take that as you will.

Depth continues to be the hot topic for Kansas State. There is the revolving door at quarterback, with even Zach Davidson likely to be in the mix at some point. But Bill Snyder is also considering pulling the redshirts off for defensive back Duke Shelley and wide receiver Isaiah Zuber (Ken Corbitt, Topeka Capital-Journal).

Snyder says he can't remember a time when the team was this decimated by injury, and Denzel Goolsby may also be making his Kansas State debut earlier than originally planned (Kellis Robinett, Kansas City Star).

Injuries and Kansas State's quarterback depth are also a theme in the Frogs O War Q&A, featuring our own Jon Morse. (He has a fanclub and all, you guys. Be afraid. Be very afraid).

Per Jake Trotter of ESPN, if the worst-case scenario comes to pass, and Will Geary and/or Dalton Risner are taking snaps under center, at least we'll have the inside track to the Piesman Trophy.

The volleyball team is struggling. The Wildcats lost to Iowa State in straight sets (25-22, 25-20, 25-20) in Ames last night, as the Cyclones held Kansas State to under .100 attack percentage. The team totaled only 38 kills on the night, although the Wildcats' defense did play well, keeping Iowa State under .200 attack percentage. The lone bright spot for the Wildcats were Katie Brand who managed a team-high 15 digs and Katie Reininger who was the only player in double-digits for kills with ten.
