HALFTIME: Kansas State 35, Missouri State 0 — Another Weather Delay

See Jesse Run. Run, Jesse, Run! A shutdown defense and an opposing quarterback who can’t hit the wall of a linen closet from inside have all conspired to stake K-State to a 35-0 lead at halftime. The defense would be putting together a fine effort even if Missouri State quarterback Brodie Lambert could find a receiver, but as it stands the Bears have only managed 54 yards of offense...

It's become an epidemic in college football that doesn't appear to be stopping: players dropping the ball before they cross the goal line, wiping out touchdowns. It's hardly new, either, as former Kansas State CB Nigel Malone knows all too well.

Weekly soccer update: K-State lets opportunity slip away in home opener

‘Cats can’t convert, fall 2-1 in front of record crowd Kansas State got just about the best atmosphere it could have hoped for in its home opener. The PA announcer proudly announced the crowd of 2,403 set a record by nearly 1,000 for Division I soccer in Kansas, which is presumably significant because there’s another D-1 team in the state, but I’m not sure. That energy seemed...

Taking care of business

Kansas State rolled over FAU in home opener Kansas State won yesterday, and won big, beating Florida Atlantic 63-7 in a game that was even more of a blowout than the scoreline suggests.

HALFTIME: K-State 42, FAU 0 - penalties, turnovers, and MANBALL

It’s hard to argue with the results so far, but, umm, Bill’s probably mad. We’re going to keep this brief, but a near pick-six and a couple of Florida Atlantic turnovers have helped stake the Wildcats to a ridiculous 42-0 lead at the half. To put this in perspective, K-State’s final five scoring drives of the half lasted a COMBINED 2:46. Three of them were one-play drives...
