From The Couch – Skylar Is Back!

From The Couch – Skylar Is Back!

Skylar Thompson returned at quarterback yesterday in a 37-31 loss against the Oklahoma Sooners. There is a lot to unwrap about the game, so this is a longer read than usual. Enjoy…. “Very loud, to say the least, here in Kansas.”…Aaron Goldsmith, FoxSports JM: The stadium was pretty loud throughout the game. It was nice to hear the television announcers mention this to open the broadcast. “Skylar Thompson will start and he has single-handedly torched this Sooner defense the last…

K-State/Oklahoma Pregame Hype

It’s OU game day! I like to watch highlights of previous K-State/OU games to help get me pumped up for the game. This year MAY be the last time K-State plays Oklahoma for a long time if they find a way to move to the SEC as early as next year.

The Chris Klieman era began at K-State on Saturday, August 31st, 2019. Nobody quite knew what to expect. How would this team look compared to Bill Snyder’s Wildcats? Would they be better? Worse? I was skeptical of the hire because Klieman had no FBS head coaching experience. He was a good coach, but could he recruit at a high FBS level?

Malik Knowles’ Kickoff Return Touchdown On Saturday

Malik Knowles’ Kickoff Return Touchdown On Saturday

I was having computer problems most of the day yesterday and, as a result, I didn’t get my post-game column posted until last night. While trying to get it out as soon as I could I got in a rush and failed to mention Malik Knowles’ 99-yard kickoff return in the first quarter of the game on Saturday that put the Wildcats ahead 10-7 in the game. It was Knowles’ second kickoff return touchdown as a Wildcat, which moved him…
