Today’s Slate is very late. Apologies.
We’re just 26 days from kickoff, as BracketCat reminds us with this profile of #26 Daron Bowles.
Here’s your daily dose of DISRESPECT! Vegas doesn’t care that Kansas State is 9-4 against Texas since the inception of the Big 12, or that Kansas State returns eight starters on offense and six on defense from last year’s nine-win campaign. Texas still got better odds (5/1) to win the Big 12 this year than Kansas State (6/1) (Tim Bisel, Topeka Capital-Journal).
KC Kingdom’s Jake Barbee riffs on five potential replacements for Bill Snyder once the inevitable happens and Snyder hangs up his clipboard forever (again). The only real surprise on this list is Joe Moorhead, current Penn State assistant.
Elijah Walker is trying to win a starting spot at safety and the Cerritos (Calif.) transfer is doing this the hard way: by putting in the time and impressing the staff with his work ethic (Ken Corbitt, Capital-Journal).
Happy Monday! (Yes, I know it’s actually Tuesday!)
