Jon got things started yesterday with the report that Morgan Burns was selected as a First Team All-American.

Wildcat00 followed that with a report about Bill Snyder planning to continue as head coach for the Wildcats.

Jon finished the day stoking the Brent Venables to K-State fire by posting a picture of Brent and Bill together at Bill Snyder's Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

Morgan Burns wasn't the only Wildcat to take home some hardware yesterday. K-State signee Skylar Thompson won the Thomas A. Simone Award for the top football player in the Kansas City metro. (Sam McDowell, KC Star)

When Mr. Thompson finally does start for Kansas State, he'll be facing much stiffer competition than his predecessors as the Big 12 conference is requiring teams to play at least one non-conference game against a fellow Power 5 team. (Staff Reports, KC Star)

One of those future Power 5 teams could be Nebraska. John Currie even went so far as to confirm that Kansas State has reached out to Nebraska to discuss options for playing one another. (Lee Barfknecht, Omaha World-Herald)

Unless you live under a rock you know that yesterday Bill Snyder was inducted to the College Football Hall of Fame. In addition to the induction, Coach Snyder was chosen to speak on behalf of all 17 inductees. (The Capital Journal)

The 2015 season for Kansas State was defined by close losses, an enormous pile of injuries, poor coaching, poor game planning, poor execution, and ultimately overcoming all the bad to finish with a bowl game. (Derek Smith, The Daily Union)

There was a bit of a hangover for Kansas State following the North Carolina loss, and Bruce Weber hopes the team doesn't let the Georgia game play a role in deciding tonight's game against Coppin State. (Kellis Robinett, KC Star)

The Georgia game was a great momentum builder for this young Wildcat team, and Bruce Weber is hopeful the players will build on that momentum tonight. (Ken Corbitt, Capital Journal)
