It’s random links Friday, as there’s no actual NEWS news.

Oh, Bill Snyder probably has some evil trick up his sleeve for tomorrow. We hope.

We’re all sort of depressed for a litany of reasons, so today we’re just going to get right to the links and be done with it. Don’t @ us.

But first, our thoughts are with our pals down in Baton Rouge. LSU Tigers basketball player Wayde Sims was shot to death at a Subway not far from the campus of Southern University early this morning.

Football

Yesterday JT asked some pointed questions of Burnt Orange Nation’s Gerald Goodridge, and in turn answered some of Gerald’s own queries.

The Eagle’s Kellis Robinett asks the big question: can this K-State team do what so many others have and recover from a bad start?

From down south, a few bits of content: Danny Davis at the Austin American-Statesman offers five matchups to watch, Robert Walker at The Daily Texan discusses the K-State players to watch, his colleague Willis Layton has three keys to the game for Texas, and BON’s Wescott Eberts reports that freshman safety BJ Foster will be out for the Longhorns due to a concussion.

Basketball

The broadcast schedule for 2018-19 is complete for the K-State women. Two games — at home vs. Kansas on January 13 and at Texas on February 17 — will air on FSN. Five games will air on FOX College Central, and the season opener against Nebraska-Omaha on November 12 will air exclusively on K-StateHD.tv and Facebook Live. The remaining home games will all be carried on ESPN3. With the exception of the Texas game, however, it’ll be a difficult task keeping up with the women on the road.

Volleyball

K-State’s perplexing 0-3 start to conference play has VolleyMob’s Derek Johnson wondering what happened to the Wildcats.

Tennis

In yesterday’s Sports Extra, Corbin McGuire previewed this weekend’s appearance by Margot Decker and Maria Linares at the ITA Women’s All-American Championships in Pacific Palisades, Calif.
