New, 15 comments

Kansas State is looking for a receiver to step up and seize the number one spot, plus soccer starts tomorrow, and a look at former Wildcat greats.

Previously

Yesterday we met the newest Bring on the Cats writer, Drew Schneider. We’ll forgive him for his transgressions at Texas A&M, and instead focus on his previous attendance at Clemson and his best friend relationship with one Brent Venables*.

*We have to assume this to be true as Drew makes no mention of Brent Venables in his article.

Football

Isaiah Zuber led Kansas State in receptions, but his total recieving yards ranked behind both Byron Pringle and Dalton Schoen. That needs to change this season as Kansas State enters the year without a clear number 1 receiver. (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle)

Mississippi state beat writers appear to have a handle on the idea that “weird things happen in Manhattan”. Most recently subscribing to this idea is Brett Hudson of The Dispatch. In his pre-season preview he expects the Bulldogs to handle Kansas State, but understands that it’s far from a foregone conclusion. (Brent Hudson, The Dispatch)

Soccer

The regular season for soccer kicks-off tomorrow evening at 7 pm. It’s a home game for the Wildcats, and those not able to be in attendance can view the match on ESPN 3. The contest pits Saint Louis against the Wildcats, with Saint Louis holding a 1-0-0 all time series lead. (kstatesports.com)

Miscellaneous

9 former Wildcats will be inducted into the K-State Athletics Hall of Fame during the weekend of September 27-29. K-State sports extra is highlighting these members leading up to that weekend. Today, they focused on Ed Klimek (a FOUR sport letterman during his time and Kansas state), Margaret Thompson (a rifle silver medalist in 1976, and a two time Big 8 winner in 63 and 64), and FI Reynolds (K-State’s first basketball All-American).
