We dropped some #Content on you yesterday. First up, a look at the Great White Whale that Bill Snyder has been chasing for the last 20 years. Then a little later in the day, Derek Smith returned to grace our page with a recap of a very testy press conference.


We’ll keep right on rolling with football stuff. We talked about yesterday’s press conference from Vanier, but has their regular full transcript of the event. Kellis Robinett at the Wichita Eagle also writes about the press conference, and adds some context from Monday’s teleconference.

Blake Lynch is “doubtful” to play against Baylor after the kicking sensation also missed the entirety of the Texas game with an undisclosed injury (Ryan Black, Mercury).

Also news broke yesterday that Anthony Payne intends to transfer from K-State, making him the sixth player from the 2017 recruiting class to leave the school (Ryan Wallace, 247Sports/GoPowercat).

Also, be sure and check back later today as Derek Smith returns with some insight from a recent former player....


The first Sunflower Showdown to be held in Manhattan will occur Friday night as the Wildcats and Jayhawks square off at 7pm CDT from the K-State Soccer Complex. It was also announced yesterday that assistant coach Jessica Smith has been promoted to associate head coach. Smith, a native of Wichita and a KU grad, has been with the program since it’s inception.


With fall practices underway, there is some excitement surrounding the K-State baseball program and new coach Pete Hughes. Wildcat fans will get a chance to see the new-look Wildcats in action this fall, starting with an exhibition match with Cowley (KS) College on Thursday at 3pm from Tointon Family Stadium.


Head coach Mike Sweeney has announced the full rowing rosterfor 2018-19 in preparation for the team’s first regatta of the fall season at the Jayhawk Jamboree on Sunday, October 21. The roster of 65 includes 13 seniors.
