Let’s hope you all get a chance to read and comment today before the sky goes black and civilization ends.

Football

I could easily post two dozen links in this sentence, but I’ll make it easy on you. The mothership’s college football preview is out. You should go read all of it.

Patrick Stevens previews the Big 12 at the Washington Post, and pegs the Cats for a 9-4 finish and third place.

Matt Brown at Sports on Earth offers his preseason bowl projections, and he -- like our colleagues at the mothership -- has K-State facing Louisville in Orlando. We’ve noted before when the possibility has arisen that K-State has still never played a bowl game in Florida, so if a Big Six bowl isn’t in the cards, I’d gladly take that bid.

Soccer

After salvaging a 0-0 road draw in Corvallis on Friday, the Cats (0-1-1) fell 2-0 in Eugene to the Oregon Ducks. They’ll be back in action Thursday evening in Tulsa, taking on the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles.

Other

The Pittsburg High students whose investigative reporting caused their incoming principal to resign before even starting the job aren’t shutting up. Maya Wilson of Poynter, the nation’s pre-eminent media observation site, checks in on the staff of the Booster five months later.
