SLATE: Kansas State in other people’s news

Not much going on around here, but the Cats are being talked about elsewhere.

Ah, memories.
Ah, memories.

If it starts raining, and pours for forty days and forty nights... well, it’ll end just in time for football season. To that end, yesterday our own BracketCat profiled K-State’s #41, linebacker Sam Sizelove.

Jeff Mittie is pretty content with the culture of the Wildcat women heading into this season, according to Corbin McGuire in today’s Sports Extra.

That’s the only homegrown news we have to share with you today, but it seems like the Wildcat brand is turning up in remote locations. We start with an article by our colleague Richard Johnson at the SB Nation mothership, who riffs off Last Chance U (which is down at Independence Community College this season) and runs down 25 big-time JUCO transfers who made good. Only one of the many JUCO transfers who’ve found their way into Bill Snyder’s pocket is featured, but he’s, um, sort of a big one.

There’s also a story in there you may have forgotten: Jason Pierre-Paul played at Fort Scott, and very well could have been a Wildcat. There’s quite a few guys on that list who played in the Sunflower State, don’t worry.

Nick Cole at Athlon ranks the top 15 SEC non-conference games of the year, and a certain clash in Manhattan is right in the middle of the pack.

Sean Manning of the Dominion Post in Morgantown casts an eye on the most intriguing quarterback battle in the Big 12: the one between Alex Delton and Skylar Thompson.

Finally, courtesy of a report by the Star’s Jesse Newell, it appears that the Wildcats may have dodged a recruiting bullet a couple of years ago. Kansas junior defensive tackle Isa Holani chose the Jayhawks over K-State, but after his arrest this weekend on suspicion of driving under the influence, maybe that’s for the best. Scott Chasen of 247 also reported on the matter.
