It’s my first official Slate where I get to put a countdown article in the previously section. Get excited people. That means football season is right around the corner!

Yesterday marked 94 days until the start of the Chris Klieman era at Kansas State. Which meant BracketCat broke down #94 Kenny Givens.

Drew Schneider dropped in yesterday to examine a now thin wide recivier corp, and try to project how the Wildcats will fill the Isaiah Zuber sized hole in the depth chart.

Basketball

Let’s not bury the lede any longer. X gonna give it to us one more time. Xavier Sneed announced yesterday he is returning to Kansas State for this senior season. This is huge news for the Wildcats! (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle)

Behind the Athletic pay wall (you can download the mobile app and you get 3 free articles a month), Josh Robbins examines Wes Iwundu’s hard work this past season, and how that work turned Iwundu from a fringe NBA player to a solid 3 and D player. (Josh Robbins, The Athletic)

Football

Despite the departure of Isaiah Zuber and the suspension of Hunter Rison, Chris Klieman remains optimistic about the wide receiver corp, and still expects the position to be an area of strength in 2019. (D. Scott Fritchen, GoPowercat.com)

While Klieman still has faith in the recievers on the roster, he did not have any comments on the status of Hunter Rison, nor would he speak on Zuber’s decision to enter the transfer portal. (Ryan Black, The Mercury)

Have a happy pre-Friday everyone. It’s sunny and no severe weather fore-casted here in Oklahoma, so here’s hoping everyone has a beautiful stress-free day!
