Previewing the season

Kansas State will try to be as balanced as possible.

Kansas State football is so close, you can almost smell it! BracketCat gets us closer to kickoff with profiles of #7 defensive Danzel McDaniel and Manhattan native #6 wide receiver Deante Burton.

In the latest installment of the 2015 preseason conditioning series, Jon Morse talks REAL LIVE FOOTBALL, previews the Big Sky conference and finds staff consensus for the Week 9 picks.

Stitt happens: Derek Smith recaps the Montana-North Dakota State game and (re)introduces us to Kansas State's next head coach, Bob Stitt.

Kansas State is going to be a middle of the pack Big 12 team, and this 8-4 prediction sounds about right (Kellis Robinett, Kansas City Star).

To get to that record, Kansas State will try to be as balanced on offense and defense as they were in 1999 (Robinett, KC Star).

The season may also turn on who wins the job under center for the Wildcats, and Tim Bisel, Ken Corbitt, and Kevin Haskin debate this and other Kansas State topics in the inaugural KSUCatZone podcast (Topeka Capital-Journal).

This is perfect Sunday football reading. Kellis and the KC Star recap the five most memorable plays in Kansas State football history. Please to remember we did this weeks ago here at BotC.

The VolleyCats day at the Hurricane Invitational began well enough. The team rallied to beat Illinois State in five hard-fought sets, with three players (Brooke Sassin, Bryna Vogel, and Katie Brand) recording double-doubles and tallying a record 118 digs.

But their run of success did not continue into the evening. Kansas State gave up the last seven points to drop a tight five-set contest to Miami. Despite the loss, the Wildcats out-killed the Hurricanes, and Sassin and Vogel managed their second double-doubles of the day, while Brand reached the 33rd double-double of her career.
