While Hubener is making the most of his chances, he isn't the only K-State player stepping up for an injured teammate.

Yesterday, Jon Morse unboxed the polls using math, so you can now know exactly how big the gap is between certain teams.

First up, ESPN.com has their way too early bowl predictions, and this time Kansas State checks in at the AutoZone Liberty Bowl in Memphis, TN. Schlaback has the 'Cats playing Miss. St, while McMurphy has them playing Arkansas.

Collegian writer Ryan Reed has joined the growing legion of Hubes. disciples, believing him to be the man to lead K-State to the promise land. While I'm still not 100% sold on Hubes. he does throw a very nice deep ball, and assuming his receivers step up and actually catch the ball, I tend to agree with Mr. Reed in thinking the Wildcat offense will be pretty good.

Ken Corbitt with the Capital Journal, summarizes the major injuries the Wildcats have suffered this season, and appreciates the depth K-State has in replacing those players. It's taken some time but it truly feels like Kansas State has the depth to overcome injuries this season, though I'd rather we don't find out just how much that depth will cover.

Even though the non-conference slate is brutal, it will pay off for the Volley 'Cats when the conference slate begins, writes Grant Cohen of the K-State Collegian.

Finally, we finish up with a little golf, as senior Kyle Weldon and sophomore Oscar Spolander led the Wildcats to an eight place finish in the Rod Myers Invitational.
