Due to Mondayiest Tuesday in the history of the universe, I failed to provide a slate for your work procrastinating pleasure. Please forgive me faithful commentariate. I’ll do my best to make up for it today.

Previously

The countdown is on! BracketCat has begun his summer trek through the roster, and on Monday we reached 96 days until kickoff, which means Kaelin Key was given the honor of top story on Bring on the Cats.

Yesterday, that honor went to Ray Price, which means we only have 95 more days until the start of Kansas State football!

Football

It’s a football Wednesday here at Bring on the Cats, and we start with a birthday shout out to former Wildcat, Jordy Nelson, who turns 32 today.

Speaking of former Wildcats, Landry Weber will continue the family tradition of playing for Kansas State. The tradition began when current radio analyst, Stan Weber, played for Jim Dickey and has included Stanton Weber playing as a walk-on for the football team, and McKenzi Weber who is a sophomore on the volleyball team.

Jones, a defensive back, picked Kansas State over Oklahoma State, Illinois, Louisville, and Michigan State. Jones joins Jaylen Pickle, a defensive tackle, as part of the 2018 recruiting class. (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle)

Miscellaneous

The biggest star of this months Catbackers tour might surprise you. You’d probably guess it’s Bill Snyder, or maybe new AD Gene Taylor but you’d be wrong. No, the biggest star of the tour is the Catbackers Tour bus which attracts fans of all ages with it’s new graphics wrap on the outside of the bus. (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle)
