Today is one of those weird Mondays when wildcat00 held the Slate long enough to catch all the Sunday morning football articles, but got it up early enough to leave the boss with something to talk about on Monday morning. Not much, mind you, but at least y’all get a Slate today.

It’s been awhile since we got to talk about Robert Streb. The former Kansas State Wildcats All-American hit it big this weekend, sinking a birdie on the second sudden-death playoff hole yesterday to win the RSM Classic in Sea Island, Ga. It’s the second time Streb has won the event; the first was in 2014 when it was known as the McGladrey Classic. The victory was worth a cool $1.2 million, pushing his career earnings into the eight-figure zone.

It’s a huge win for Streb, who earned a two-plus year exemption to the PGA Tour and automatic qualification to the 2021 majors (except the US Open). That’ll take some pressure off him, as he’s had to earn qualification on lesser tours the last few years.

In football news, game time has been set for K-State’s game this Saturday in Waco. The Cats will face Baylor Bears at 6:00pm, and for only the second time this season will escape the clutches of the FOX empire as the game will air on ESPN2. The big game Saturday will of course be Iowa State Cyclones ‘s visit to Texas Longhorns, which would all but clinch a spot in the Big 12 title game for the Cyclones with a win. The rest of the Big 12 schedule on Saturday is basically poo.

In today’s Sports Extra, Austin Siegel ranks the top 10 moments of K-State’s fall sports season. To the surprise of absolutely nobody, number one on the list is the stunner against Oklahoma Sooners.
