Yesterday, Bring on the PodCats featured Texas writer Ian Boyd as we discussed the upcoming game in Austin.

This morning before the Slate dropped in, TB posted his breakdown of the breakdowns in the Baylor game.

Volleyball

The VolleyCats fought hard for a 30-28 set 1 victory, but didn’t have any more for the Horned Frogs and fell in four sets in Ft. Worth. TCU stormed ahead in set 2 and won 17-25 before the Cats made things interesting in a 29-31 loss in set 3. Ultimately, the Cats didn’t have enough left in the tank and fell in set 4 21-25. With the loss the Wildcats fall to 8-9 overall, 1-3 in Big 12 play. The Cats return home this Saturday for a 1:00pm tilt against Texas Tech.

Football

K-State may have a winning record over the Longhorns, but it’s still a big game for the guys who hail from the Lone Star State. And so it is for Kendall Adams, who grew up cheering for the Longhorns, but now has a Texas-sized chip because he wasn’t even recruited by his favorite team (Robinett, Eagle).

Fellow defensive back D.J. Reed is determined not to let fumbles happen again, after two in game against Baylor were just lucky enough not to hurt the Cats (Corbitt, C-J).

Kevin Haskin over at the Topeka Capital-Journal breaks down all the Big 12 action this weekend and slots the Wildcats in behind the Longhorns in his power rankings.

This morning’s Sports Extra from Corbin McGuire highlights the “gritty” K-State defense and their goal to maintain improvement heading into this weekend.

Women’s Basketball

On Wednesday Jeff Mittie and members of the women’s basketball team addressed the media for their annual pre-season media day. Mittie says the Cats are ready to build on their trip to Europe this past summer, and released a few other news and notes on various players (Corbitt, C-J).

The K-State College of Arts and Sciences is recognizing three outstanding alumni later this month (Stephanie Casanova, Manhattan Mercury). This year’s outstanding alumni include Kevin Rabas, poet laureate of Kansas; Dave Roth, a Broadway percussionist; and Summer Lewis, co-founder of the international development firm True Roots.

It’s not every day we get to highlight one of our long-time readers, but today we get that chance. Chuck Roberts is a a licensed counselor in the Dallas area and recently sat down to talk about his life with Mary DeMuth or her Restory Show. When you get a chance, you should give it a listen, very good stuff.
