It’s an all football SLate Thursday so let’s jump right in.


Yesterday, Drew examined how the Kansas State offense looks through two weeks, and ask’s the tough questions; Will this be the same offense after facing Mississippi State’s stout defense?


A couple pieces from behind enemy lines:

Tyler Horka with the Mississippi Clarion Ledge asked Ryan Black with the Manhattan Mercury the tough questions and asks him to make a prediction for his weekly Q and A.

Trey Mongrue with looks back at Kylin Hill’s performance last year, and how Hill hopes to repeat that performance.

Back home in Kansas, D. Scott Fritchen examines a Wildcat defense that has played well, despite having only one sack, and eight tackles for loss.

Kansas State’s history against SEC opponents has been abysmal. A win Saturday would be a historic one for the Wildcats given their current record against the SEC includes on 4 wins with none of them coming on the road. -Hayden Barber, Wichita Eagle

Former Wildcat Isaiah Zuber promised plenty of talk against his old teammates. Current Wildcat and former teammate of Zuber, Elijah Sullivan expects this game to “feel like it’s a rivalry game”. -Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle

Ryan Black reports on the injury status of two key starters, Wyatt Hubert and Walter Neil Jr. Both players status remained cloudy yesterday, as coaches appears uncertain that either player would be able to play.

Both Joe Moorhead and Chris Klieman hail from the FCS ranks, and as such have a mutual respect for one another. -Ryan Black, Manhattan Mercury
