Slate: Commentary and a Players-Only Meeting

Plus volleyball tonight, soccer this weekend, strong finish for golf, and a basketball story.

NCAA Football: Kansas State at Baylor Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports


We had two pieces of #content yesterday, and both related to the football program. First up, Derek posited that this may be the worst team at Kansas State since Snyder first arrived on campus. A little later, Drew dropped in his thoughts on the game against Baylor: and yes, there is good and bad.

Yesterday K-State hosted their weekly football press conference and media availability. The big topic for discussion came after Bill Snyder was done, as Dalton Risner talked to the media and brought up a players-only meeting that took place early this week, the fourth in the last four years. Risner, for his part, hopes the meeting will help the Wildcats finish the season strong (Robinett, Eagle). They need any boost they can get right now.


The VolleyCats are in action tonight in Ahearn Fieldhouse, hosting the Iowa State Cyclones at 7pm CDT. The Wildcats are mired in a 5-game losing streak and are still win-less in conference play. The Cyclones aren’t much better, sitting just above the Wildcats in the Big 12 and also stuck in their own 4-game losing streak. There are still bright spots for the Wildcats, including senior Macy Flowers who has put in a ton of work that has elevated her to one of the top blockers in the nation, and in 2018 is currently sitting fourth in blocks per set.


K-State women’s golf turned in a solid performance to start the week, as they turned in a 12th-place finish at the Illini Women’s Invitational that concluded Tuesday. The Wildcats were led by sophomore Ella Adams, who continued her strong play of late. Adams recorded a career-low 54-hole score of 3-under par 213 to finish in a tie for 13th place on the event.


There is a full weekend ahead for K-State soccer with matches on Friday and Sunday from the K-State Soccer Complex to conclude the home portion of the 2018 schedule. Friday at 6pm, the Cats play host to Texas Tech, who beat the Cats 3-1 last year in Lubbock. On Sunday at 12:30pm, the Cats will host TCU on Senior Day. Both matches will be available on ESPN3, or you can listen over the air or streaming at 101.5 KROCK &
