Jon Morse’s journey through K-State athletics history continues apace. We’re now up to the 1924-25 season, and the mantra is a familiar one: Beat Kansas.

Back in the present, Kansas State is gearing up for what could be a great season. The schedule might present some issues, however. Not only are the Wildcats playing an SEC team (Vanderbilt) on the road in the non-conference part of the schedule, but after an early bye in September, Kansas State will play nine straight Big 12 games. The toughest of those games? According to Athlon, it’s the October 21st tilt against Oklahoma and it’s hard to disagree.

Could linebacker Trent Tanking be the future Kansas State football coach? Jake Trotter thinks so, in this ESPN breakdown of future coaches on each Top 25 team’s current roster.

Terrance Harris of the Associated Press commemorates the 45th anniversary of Title IX with a piece on gender and racial inequality in the coaching ranks.
