We’ve reached the oasis. That one brief moment of respite between the end of basketball season and the start of next football season. It’s time for the annual Purple and White Spring Game.
It’s technically the 15th and final practice of the spring season for the Kansas State Wildcats football team; a glorified scrimmage that generally pits the first team against the second team, and allows some guys that are usually buried on the depth chart a chance to play football in front of fans.
This year may just be a bit different. We’ve already heard reports that Snyder may play the ones versus the ones (at least, most of them), which could create some interesting, and slightly more useful results. Also, there’s a slight chance that with all the new coaches that we may actually see a wrinkle or two, or at the very least something different than maybe we’ve seen over the better part of the last decade; especially on offense.
The game itself kicks off at 1:10pm, and the game can be seen world-wide on K-StateHD.TV for free with audio from the K-State Sports Network beginning at 1pm. The game can also be heard live on eight radio stations across the state of Kansas in addition to the TuneIn app.
No matter what, we’ll have some fun. We’ll get to see some football, tailgate, and have a fall Saturday in April (and really, it’s going to feel like a fall Saturday in Manhattan). It may just be a glorified practice, but it is still our oasis. Enjoy, and Go Cats!
