Slate: Big 12 Media Days news dump

Plus a little baseball and soccer

NCAA Football: Big 12 Media Day Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports


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.

From BOTC:

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).

Other media:

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.

Fun tidbits:

Apparently K-State Football SID Kenny Lannou stole the fashion show in Frisco on Tuesday:

Also, when in Texas Bill Snyder apparently doesn’t eat Taco Bell:

Could Snyder coach forever??

Not related to K-State or media days, but sometimes even that turd bucket down the river does something good and wonderful:


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.
