Well roll what happened yesterday right into our regular Football section. First, Gracey brought us the news that Harrison Creed, an offensive lineman out of Ulysses, KS committed to the Wildcats Wednesday morning. A little later yesterday, came the announcement of commitment from Bernard Goodwater, and all-purpose back out of Carter HS in Dallas, TX.

Goodwater, currently not rated by the recruiting services, chose K-State over offers from Army, Bowling Green, and Illinois State, among others, as well as interest from Texas. Goodwater fits the mold of other K-State all-purpose backs, as the 5'9" 180lb Texan boasts a 4.4-40 time as well as some decently impressive highlights where he regularly out-runs defenders and even takes some snaps in the "Wildcat" package.
In non recruiting news, ESPN's Brandon Chatmon looked at how well Big 12 QB's did against the blitz last year, and, well, I think we all know how low Joe Hubener is on this list. From the ESPN Pac-12 blog, David Lombardi takes a look at Stanford's opening-game opponent. And Kellis Robinett (Eagle/Star) reports that Bill Snyder is happy about the return of the Big 12 championship game, and would be even happier if the Big 12 got back to twelve teams.
Over at the Topeka Capital-Journal, Ken Corbitt talked with D.J. Johnson while the K-State forward was helping at Bob Chipman's camp at Washburn. D.J. wasn't happy with how the 2015-16 season ended for the Wildcats, or how he ended the season, but is working on trying to become a more complete player.
Robinett also dropped a story yesterday about basketball. Jeff Mittie is confident in his bunch of hoopsters and has high expectations with so much returning and the big new additions for next season.
