Because we needed some positive news in Wildcatland, we kick off today with the most recent post from Luke Sobba, dropping in early this morning with a look at what the expectations should be for the WeberCats as we head into the 2018-19 season; which begins with the first, and only, exhibition match on Friday night, as the Cats take on Pitt State. Also be on the lookout for the return of TheBigE with a season primer of your Kansas State Wildcats.


Now, back to where the news is. Luke Thompson and Drew Schneider talked with Melissa Triebwasser, managing editor of SBNation’s Frogs O’War, for the latest edition of Bring on the PodCats. Hint: there isn’t much joy in the land of purple these days when it comes to football.

Yesterday was the weekly football press conference from Vanier. According to Snyder, in a radical departure from nothing, effort, not talent, will determine playing time the rest of the year (Robinett, Eagle). Avery Osen at the K-State Collegian has some quotes from players following the press conference. And down in Ft. Worth, TCU may be without two starting defensive linemen for the game this weekend.

Sports Extra caught up with center Adam Holtorf for a Q&A. Holtorf, a native of Seward, NE, has been an Academic All-American and was once recruited by multiple Ivy League schools before deciding on the Wildcats.

Women’s Golf

From the SID, sophomore Ella Adams concluded a successful fall slate on Tuesday as she carded a 5-over par 221, finishing in ninth place in the Trinity Forest Invitational held at the Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas, TX.
