    Guggisberg: Indians’ title mark of pure dominance

    Grant.phatch

    LAWRENCE — I’ll be honest — I don’t consider myself all that knowledgeable when it comes to the sport of cross country. But I know dominance when I see it. Saturday at Rim Rock Farm, I saw it. The Manhattan High boys’ cross country team

    Guggisberg: Give Snyder some credit

    Grant.phatch

    You can call it backup quarterback syndrome, or maybe it’s just the human nature that surrounds wanting most what you inevitably can’t have. But as the Kansas State football team has limped to a 2-3 start, with two of those losses coming by

    Kinder: It’s time for Cats to put up or shut up

    Josh mug color

    Just about any other year, I’d be the first to say must-wins in Week 5 of the college football season might be a little premature. But that’s exactly what Kansas State is facing this week and next if the Wildcats intend to play in

    Jellison: Wildcats could run all over reeling Longhorns, Brown

    Cut047joel.phatch

    Mack Brown’s team is in trouble. Through three games this season, Brown’s Texas Longhorns have allowed more than 300 rushing yards per game, ranking 121st out of 123 teams nationally. And what a coincidence, the Longhorns (1-2) have to face Kansas State on Saturday — a

    Kinder: Mr. Brown, say hi to Mr. Solich

    If history truly does repeat itself, then Mack Brown may be without a job very soon. The longtime Texas football coach is struggling these days to explain away the Longhorns’ two straight losses they’ll carry into Saturday’s game against Kansas State in Austin.

    Guggisberg: Defense still lacking consistency

    Grant.phatch

    If the loss to North Dakota State alarmed some fans two weeks ago, Saturday night’s 37-7 win over lowly UMass should put them in full-on crisis mode. Let’s start with the obvious. This defense can’t stop anybody — not for four quarters, anyway.

    Kinder: Waters’ days numbered as the starter?

    Josh mug color

    This really is a good problem to have if you’re Kansas State. The Wildcats have two capable quarterbacks, clearly very different in styles, yet both effective doing what each of them does best. And while Jake Waters will start again Saturday night against UMass,

    Guggisberg: Wildcats still a work in progress

    Grant.phatch

    As the 48-27 final score against Louisiana indicates, Kansas State improved upon last week’s performance against North Dakota State. But how much better were they? Did the glaring weaknesses in last week’s loss to the Bison really improve that much? The running game

    Kinder: Just sign here please

    Few people probably even know who Michael Tucker is, let alone remember when he played for the Kansas City Royals. Much like his career, he’s an easy player to forget. But not me. The former Royals outfielder threw a baseball at me when I

    Guggisberg: K-State was overmatched on defense

    Grant-cutout.phatch

    When some families reunite, this is what it looks like. It’s dramatic. It’s frustrating. By the end of it, you might see tears, or you might be burning with anger. But when the Kansas State football family gets together each year, it’s
