From The Couch – Eight Straight Big 12 Losses Is Cause For Concern

From The Couch – Eight Straight Big 12 Losses Is Cause For Concern

K-State lost 33-20 to Iowa State last night in a game that was close in the first half but got away from the Wildcats early in the second half. As I watched the game unfold, I got increasingly frustrated and grumpy. There are a couple of reasons that I wait until the next day to write my column about the game. A lot of times my instant reaction is different than what my reaction is when I “sleep on it”…

Meet Monty Putnam, South Carolina Superfan Who Became a K-State Superfan

Twitter can be a mean, nasty and disgusting place that quite often reflects the worst of humanity. On rare occasions it can also represent the best of humanity, as life-long University of South Carolina fan Monty Putnam recently found out.

I did a…

Sproles was racing kids in the mostly empty parking lot of Bill Snyder Family Stadium. There is a short video of this online, thanks to Twitter user Coby Sedlacek… I’m not sure of the whole story behind this, but it was so cool to see. What a class act Darren Sproles is!

A Bye-Week Reset Of Expectations For The Wildcats

A Bye-Week Reset Of Expectations For The Wildcats

It’s time for a bye-week reset of expectations for the Kansas State Wildcats. Despite a 37-31 loss to the Oklahoma Sooners on Saturday, it was great seeing K-State quarterback Skylar Thompson back healthy and leading the Wildcat offense. He was cool, calm, and collected while completing 29 of 41 passes for 320 yards and three touchdowns in the game. Having Thompson back gives me hope that Kansas State can make a bowl game, and maybe even a good bowl game,…
