We’re barely two months from kickoff for Kansas State football, and BracketCat brings us up to speed with #64 offensive lineman DJ Robinson.
Bring on the PodCats returned after a brief hiatus yesterday, with Luke Thompson hosting newly minted high jump national champion Tejaswin Shankar.
In the only item that qualifies as proper Kansas State sports news, head baseball coach Pete Hughes announced another addition to his staff. Cord “Buck” Taylor has been hired as pitching coach for the Wildcats. Taylor was head coach at Palomar Community College for the past 14 years, and in that time, the school has sent 21 pitchers into professional baseball, including four in the Major League.
Kellis Robinett’s weekly K-State Q&A polls readers on which basketball jersey should be retired next (SPOILER ALERT: it’s not Michael Beasley but Jacob Pullen who wins the fan vote). The Q&A also features a question from our own editorial staff, so kudos to Ahearn Alley for the mention!
Summer baseball makes for strange bedfellows, and never more than when Kansas State and Kansas players end up on the same team. This summer, Kansas’ James Cosentino and Kansas State’s Will Brennan are both playing for the Falmouth Commodores in the Cape Cod Baseball League. They’ve played on the same team before, and in this case, familiarity has bred friendship rather than contempt.
Finally, in a note to ponder for the weekend, nobody is really talking about Kansas State football as a contender in 2018, and that’s just how Bill Snyder would want it.
Have a good weekend!
