It’s a strange Monday here at the Slate, as there’s nothing super-duper newsworthy, but there’s a lot of random stuff. So let’s get right to it.
Brian Manzullo of the Detroit Free Press offers up his personal top 25, with commentary. K-State is right where you expect them at this point, at #19.
At Fansided, Andrew Hammond talks about the 16 goals, Scott Frantz, and Bill Snyder’s health.
Speaking of Frantz, Cyd Zeigler follows up on his original story for our colleagues at Outsports, reporting that Frantz has experienced nothing but positivity since coming out. Kevin Haskin at the Capital-Journal also dives into the topic.
Lucas Davis of the Joplin Globe has a feature on Alex Barnes and his development into a top back.
Our colleagues at Off Tackle Empire have temporarily removed their noses from their Big Ten-centered navels, as Jesse Collins presents part one of his interview with our pal David Ubben. We’re going to want to watch out for part two, as that apparently will include David’s in-depth thoughts on K-State and how they just keep chugging along. But in part one, there’s a surprise Big 12 championship game prediction.
Saturday in Rome, Peyton Williams had a double-double to lead K-State over All-Star Italy in a 79-47 rout to kick off their four-game European tour. Yesterday’s result wasn’t as great. Kaylee Page scored 12 points, but the Wildcats fell to TK Hannover in a game marred by a lack of air conditioning. The tour continues later this week in Vienna. (Cap-Journal, uncredited)
At the Capital-Journal, Ken Corbitt has a preview of the upcoming campaign.
