Slate: QB Change for Kansas State

Snyder uses veto power and promotes Delton over Thompson; plus women’s basketball and volleyball news

NCAA Football: Kansas State at West Virginia
Snyder is hoping Delton can run all over UT

We’ll lead today with the big story out of Vanier. Rumors continue to circulate that Bill Snyder has used his override power and promoted Alex Delton to starting QB over Skylar Thompson (Robinett, Eagle). This is a strange move, considering the Texas Longhorns are currently ranked 29th in FBS in rushing defense, but giving up 245 passing yards per game, only good for 90th in the country, even after their performance against TCU.

From the AP, via Fox Sports, Dave Skretta writes that K-State and KU are in a very similar position, trying to find their footing after lopsided losses. Both will have a hard time finding that footing this weekend.

Yesterday, K-State held it’s weekly football press conference. Not much new out of Snyder, but he did seem to walk back a bit on his comments after the game on Saturday, or at least is being more even regarding his answers.

Women’s Basketball

K-State Athletics dropped a teaser late last week that something big was going to be announced. Well yesterday they finally made their announcement, and the K-State women’s basketball team will host the inaugural Women’s Basketball Tip-Off Event featuring guest speaker Holly Rowe of ESPN on Tuesday, October 23rd, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Tickets are available for the event, with season ticket holders having priority.


The VolleyCats are back in action tonight looking to snap a two-game losing streak to start conference play. The Cats are making the big trip out east to Morgantown to take on a WVU squad that is also winless in conference play. The match, scheduled for a 5pm CDT start time, will stream live on MountaineerTV while fans can listen to Rob Voelker on the call on News Radio KMAN (93.3 FM, 1350 AM). Free, live audio available at
