Managing expectations

New, 3 comments

There will be changes.

NCAA Football: Big 12 Media Days Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Football

We’re less than 30 days from Real Live Kansas State football. Indeed, we’re just Jax Dineen days away from kickoff, courtesy of BracketCat.

Excitement is definitely in the air around the program, and this is entirely appropriate. Yesterday was the first day of fall camp, and we are on the cusp of a new era, after all. But nobody knows exactly what to expect. Are the Wildcats really going to finish ninth in-conference? Maybe we’ll make that bowl game? What if we can’t meet our own expectations? Questions abound. I have no answers, and the only certainty is that, in the words of the inimitable Bob Dylan, I feel a change comin’ on.

Drew Schneider, our very own neutral third-party observer, tries to manage fan expectations and Ch-ch-ch-changes in Manhattan.

Kellis Robinett too tackles the topic of change in his weekly K-State Q&A. He also goes way out on a limb and suggests the Wildcats could finish anywhere between 4-8 and 8-4.

And speaking of change, some big changes are afoot here at SB Nation. As many of you are probably aware, the venerable Everyday Should be Saturday has shuttered its virtual doors forever.

But fear not, you can still overdose on Spencer Hall, Holly Anderson, Ryan Nanni, and others at their new not-quite-ready for entertainment digs: Banner Society. My understanding is that this is mostly a rebrand, though some things at Banner will be different/new.

Plus ca change...

Volleyball

Kansas State volleyball star Peyton Williams is also a basketball star, one of just four Division I athletes to compete in both sports. Now Kansas State is promoting Williams as a bona fide double threat, complete with fancy splash page and a list of Williams’ many achievements.

Single match tickets for the season go on sale tomorrow.

Happy Friday!
