While KSUEMAW! covered it in yesterday’s SLate, we did want to bring this back to you for an important update: Jon covered the defensive backs yesterday, then had to cover his behind this morning because he missed Johnathan Durham, who appears to be the chief back-up at nickleback — or “Cat” safety, as it’s usually called in the K-State scheme (I’m partially to blame for this, as I miss-spelled Mr. Durham’s first name in the Fan Appreciation Day post so it wasn’t as easy to spot — #teamfail).
It appears we can’t get out of the summer without one more Sean Snyder story. Kellis Robinett, via the KC Star, reports that, even with all the extra spolight his dad is putting on him, Sean is staying focused on the task at hand — namely, winning football games in 2017.
K-State plays it’s final match in it’s three-game road opener tonight, facing the Golden Eagles of Oral Roberts ([insert Club Dread joke here]). The Eagles are 1-1-0 on the season, having beat UMKC 2-0 (who the Cats also beat in exhibition play earlier this month) before losing to Loyola-Chicago 6-2 last Sunday. Tonight’s match at the Case Soccer Complex in Tulsa, OK kicks off at 7:00 pm.
On the heels of the big announcement that K-State Athletics has partnered with SIDEARM Sports and ESPN3 for the Wildcats Tier-3 and digital media rights, comes the announcements of two pieces of the media broadcast package.
First up, was the announcement of the broadcast schedule for all K-State soccer home matches. All eight home matches will be broadcast, with five coming on the new ESPN3 deal (matches against Creighton, Colorado State, West Virginia, Baylor, and Texas), as well as three on COX Channel Kansas (matches against Omaha, Central Arkansas, and Iowa). The three on COX Channel Kansas will be produced by K-StateHD.TV and will be available on that platform outside of the state of Kansas. Two road games will also be broadcast, with the Sunflower Showdown available on Spectrum Sports, and the tilt against OU available on FS Oklahoma.
Edit: Important update from K-State for you soccer fans:
I might amend this a bit - the KSHDTV streams during COX productions are available everywhere, including those inside state of KS https://t.co/OGLXOmKb3E— Brian Smoller (@BrianSmoller) August 24, 2017
Second was the announcement of the K-State Sports Network affiliate list, as well as the dates for the Bill Snyder Show. The complete list, which includes K-State’s new Kansas City partner KCSP 610AM, can be found here. The Bill Snyder Show kicks off on Thursday, August 31, (from 7-8 pm) and will then be broadcast every Thursday until November 16th. Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, there will be no show on the Thursday before the Iowa State game.
