The Curious Case of the K-State Offense

The 2015 offense is still mostly an insoluble puzzle

We are getting really close to FOOTBAW. We're are T-21 and counting and BracketCat is ready with #23 walk-on wide receiver Collin Sexton and #22 All-World safety Dante Barnett.

With real live Wildcat football so close at hand, Jon Morse encourages you to stay in shape with his 2015 preseason conditioning program. This time, Jon riffs on the five best tight ends in school history and previews the Heartland and Empire 8 leagues.

Finally, in our ongoing 2015 early opponent preview feature, we take a closer look at Texas Tech.

For the next several months, the Slate will probably be football heavy, and today is no exception. We begin with the Kansas State offense which can be best described as a giant question mark at this point (Timothy Everson, K-State Collegian). The quarterback battle has been discussed endlessly (Ken Corbitt, Topeka Capital-Journal), but there are open questions at wide receiver (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle), although at least one question may be answered by former Chapman star and current tight end Zach Heiman (Derek Smith, Daily Union). Also, it is not clear how Kansas State will fill the gaping hole in the offensive line made by the departure of B.J. Finney (Tony Adame, Kansas City Star).

Thankfully, the other side appears to be a model of stability. This may be one of the best secondaries to ever take the field in purple, and with Travis Britz back from injury, the defensive line should be a strength as well (Ken Corbitt, Capital-Journal).

The Big 12 blog crew discusses the biggest stories out of various preseason camps. Yes, they're still talking about Kansas State's quarterback battle, and no, they do not know anymore than we do at this point. But hey, at least they're aware that Jonathan Banks exists now (Jake Trotter, ESPN).

Finally, this has little to do with football specifically, but here are some tips on getting the most out of fall sports in Manhattan (Everson, Collegian). I'm linking this article almost entirely for the unexpected side swipe at Allen Fieldhouse. Kudos on your EMAW-ness, Mr. Everson.
