Jeremy Gandon wins a golf championship, the BatCats get a much needed victory, and NFL draft notes.

So much football! Yesterday, AMS started us off with a draft preview of WR Byron Pringle. JT VanGilder followed that with a review of what we learned from the offense during the spring game. And since we are equal opportunity reviewers here at Bring on the Cats JT also reviewed what we learned on defense.


There’s an unwritten rule here at Bring on the Cats. When someone wins a championship you must lead the slate with that news. And in keeping with this rule, we start with the Men’s Big 12 Golf Championship, where K-State’s own Jeremy Gandon made history yesterday becoming the first Wildcat golfer since 1951 to win a conference championship.(Tim Bisel, Capital Journal)


The NFL Draft begins this evening at 5 pm, and the most likely player to extend Kansas State’s draft streak is D.J. Reed. The biggest question for Reed isn’t if, it’s when. And almost everyone (including his agent) sees D.J. as a day three pick. (Teddy Feinberg, The Bakersfield California)

We all know Reed has a special swag about him when he plays. It’s a cockiness that he shows when he makes big plays. It’s part of what makes him a great corner. Others have noticed that swagger as well, as Reed was named to the Kansas City Star’s All-Juice Team, put together each year by writer Terez Paylor of the KC Star.


Two wins in a row merits being discussed again. The Bat Cats defeated Omaha on the road last night 6-5 in 11 innings. The win gave the Cats a season sweep of the Mavericks as they won the earlier game this season at Tointon.
