K-State was up at Big 12 Media Days yesterday, which means that today we have ALL. THE. CONTENT. for you today; so prepare for the link dump.
Jon Morse caught the early remarks from the new Big 12 Coordinator of Football Officials Greg Burks.
Bill Snyder took the main stage at lunch time, and we dropped a quick recap of his presser.
With 46 days to kickoff, BracketCat also dropped a profile on Jaylen Pickle.
From Kellis Robinett:
On why Alex Delton and Skylar Thompson sharing the QB duties could actually work.
AD Gene Taylor is mulling the idea of selling beer at K-State football games.
What do Big 12 and SEC coaches think about the new redshirt rule? (with Aaron Reiss).
Matt Galloway at the Topeka Capital-Journal wrote a whole article on Snyder’s answer about any changes with the new coordinators (hint: Snyder said there won’t be any because his playbook already has everything).
Ryan Black at The Mercury took a look at the Big 12 Media Days through the eyes of K-State’s player representatives.
K-State Online’s staff posted a free article about the 100 things they learned at the Big 12 Media Days.
K-State Sports’ Corbin McGuire talked about the player representatives in today’s Sports Extra — these weren’t just four random guys chosen.
Also from K-State Sports, the full transcript of Bill Snyder’s presser.
John Hoover at Sporting News published a profile of Snyder, K-State’s rock, on Monday.
Apparently K-State Football SID Kenny Lannou stole the fashion show in Frisco on Tuesday:
Impressive, but I think this may have been the first time in the history of college football media days that an SID --#KState fashion plate Kenny Lannou -- outdid all the players and coaches.— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) July 18, 2018
Also, when in Texas Bill Snyder apparently doesn’t eat Taco Bell:
Just when I thought Bill Snyder couldn’t get any cooler.... spotted him leaving the hotel today with a half-dozen bags of Whataburger by his side on the way out of town. #Legend— Alex Loeb (@SpanningTheLoeb) July 18, 2018
Could Snyder coach forever??
Kansas State coach Bill Snyder hasn’t thought about retirement: “I’ve got a 6-year old great-grandchild that I want to coach.” pic.twitter.com/y6Qm1QyFOr— Alex Halsted (@AlexHalsted) July 17, 2018
Not related to K-State or media days, but sometimes even that turd bucket down the river does something good and wonderful:
Really cool move by @KUAthletics and @KU_Football to feature signing day hero Tayber Witt in the official team media guide. You’re an inspiration, Tayber and we’re thrilled to have you in the Jayhawk family. #kufball pic.twitter.com/zLvDQejy4r— Brian Hanni (@BHanni) July 16, 2018
K-State announced single-game promotions for the soccer team’s second full home slate. Promotions include food and ticket discounts, a free youth clinic, autographs, and some promotional ticket packages (like with shirts). If you’re in or around Manhattan, you should really go out and check these hard-working ladies out!
K-State dropped it’s weekly summer baseball update yesterday. Nick Martini has been bouncing between the Okland A’s and their AAA affiliate, but is currently on the A’s active roster; Will Brennan and Cam Thompson are both doing well in the Cape Cod league; and a couple of the to-be sophomores are hitting over .300 for their respective teams.
