Yesterday the Wildcat volleyball team traveled to Ames to take on the #23 Cyclones and got sent home quickly after losing in straight sets, 12-25, 16-25, and 25-27. The loss extends the Cats losing streak in Ames to 10 games, and sets the VolleyCats under .500 and 9-10 (2-4) on the season. Next up, the Cats will host #25 Baylor in Ahearn on Saturday, Oct. 14th at 7 pm as part of the “Ultimate Wildcat Weekend” events.
Some big news out of the Ice Family Basketball Center yesterday, as head coach Jeff Mittie announced that Eternati Willock, a one-time top-rated recruit and a unanimous selection to the Big 12 All-Freshman Team last season, has been dismissed from the Wildcat basketball program (Robinett, Eagle). Willock had issues in the spring but was re-instated to the program before the Cats traveled to Europe this past summer.
Some more news and notes as the Cats head into a tough matchup with TCU this weekend.
First up, Kellis Robinett looks at how well Dalton Schoen has played for the Cats this season, and it’s making K-State’s scholarship receivers look that much worse (Eagle).
Over at frenemy SBNation site Frog’s O’ War, they talked back and forth about just how good the Horned Frogs are this season.
One a slightly more positive note, a former K-State signee is back in purple after spending a couple seasons at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M JuCo (Robinett, Eagle). Darreyl Patterson was once a 3-star recruit and part of the 2015 recruiting class before deciding JUCO was a better option.
Things over in Lawrence may be getting a bit more interesting. While KU Athletics maintains the FBI hasn’t contacted them, a bit of lawyer-speak from a Freedom of Information Act request made by the University Daily Kansan indicates that there is something KU-related in the on-going investigation, so records cannot be released. That doesn’t mean KU is involved, but it doesn’t mean they aren’t either. And as a “flagship” Adidas school, there are a lot of ways that KU could be involved with the investigation.
