Yesterday we all got to relive the glorious "Battle of the Bastards" as told through our very own fantasy bard Luke Sobba.

Gracey then followed with some real world awesomeness, as Josh Rivas announced his verbal commitment to Kansas State. That means the top 3 Kansas OL prospects have committed to the Wildcats.

Finally, we moved closer to FOOTBALL with Bracketcat checking in on day 73.

Even with his busy scheduled as a rookie with the Chicago Bears, Cody Whitehair has found time to host a youth football camp with former K-State players Curry Sexton, Jake Waters, and Zach Nemechek. (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle)

Elijah Lee has been a terror for opposing QB's ever since he set foot on the field his freshman season, and many are predicting a breakout season for the junior linebacker. (Brandon Chatmon, ESPN.com)

In more recruiting news Eli Huggins, a three star defensive end/tackle, from West Forsyth, Georgia committed to Kansas State. Huggins already has over 21 collegiate offers, and turned down schools like NC State, Air Force, Army and Navy. Clearly the kid has some skills in the class room as well since he also has offers from Brown, and Columbia. Currently he plans to graduate in December so he can enroll early at K-State.
