    Ksu21.phatch

    Jonathan Truman didn’t need anyone to tell him what to do. He already knew what he was doing wasn’t good enough. He had to be better. The Kansas State senior clearly wasn’t at his best in Week 2 at Iowa State when he

    I don’t imagine it’s ever an easy decision to fire a coach, especially during the season like Charlie Weis was on Sunday. But nonetheless, that’s what Kansas athletic director Sheahon Zenger felt was necessary after the Jayhawks’ 2-2 start to the season

    LAWRENCE — Charlie Weis arrived at Kansas full of bravado, promising dramatic changes within the long-suffering program. Players were dismissed, offenses and defenses were scrapped.

    Lockett races into end zone on punt return

    It seems impossible, but Tyler Lockett did something he’s never done in a Kansas State uniform on Saturday. With the Wildcats leading Texas-El Paso 17-0 in the second quarter, Lockett fielded a line-drive punt and took it 58 yards for his first-career punt return touchdown

    Cats use complete game to beat UTEP

    It took Texas-El Paso nearly 25 minutes to record a first down on Saturday. Kansas State was already leading by 24 points. It only got worse for the Miners, too, who entered the game as one of the top rushing teams in America, only to leave Manhattan

    Wildcats put tough run D up against UTEP attack

    In a nationally-televised game last Thursday, Kansas State impressed the nation with its run defense against the dynamic rushing attack of the Auburn Tigers. Saturday’s 11 a.m. matchup with Texas-El Paso lacks the national intrigue or spotlight, but does offer similar challenges for the

    K-State offense looking to find red-zone consistency

    Kansas State had four turnovers, dropped an easy touchdown pass and missed three field goals, yet still had a shot in the fourth quarter last Thursday night to beat Auburn. As bad as the Wildcats were at times, they know eliminating just a few costly
