In Sunday's preseason conditioning, our head coach Jon Morse polled the staff, and presented our top 5 defensive backs in Kansas State history.
Business Insider sent reporter Cork Gaines to Manhattan for the unvieling of the Vanier Family Football Complex. What he witnessed is pretty stunning (the photos in the article are some of the best I've seen).
Every fall practice starts the same way at Kansas State. Every player is put through a grueling conditioning test designed to make sure everyone kept up with their conditioning in the off-season, and to make in-coming freshman realize just how hard they needed to work in Bill Snyder's program. This year was different thought, as more players passed this years conditioning test, than had at any previous practice. (Kellis Robinett, The Wichita Eagle)
A running theme this preseason camp will be the quarterback carousel, which as of today still has four players competing for the QB1 spot. So far that separation hasn't happened (Tate Steinlage, AP) as Joe Hubener, Jesse Ertz, Alex Delton, and Jonathan Banks are remain options for starting opening day. Hubener was thought to have a leg up on the competition since he was the primary back up to Jake Waters last season, but he seemed to regress at the Spring game, and has yet to re-capture the spot.(Arne Green, Salina Journal)
With the loss of B.J. Finney to graduation, Kansas State needs someone to step up as the leader of the offensive line, and it appears Cody Whitehair has stepped into that role. Although more of a lead by example type of guy, Whitehair appears ready to be the anchor of the offensive line.
