Welcome to our humble abode. Pull up a seat and grab a glass for a sip from today’s Jug of News. Hit the jump for a Brady Bauman article on DB Ty Zimmerman’s role as a leader, the men’s basketball Big 12 conference schedule, and more.
Due to the time constraints caused by, you know, living and all, this is going to be an all quick-hit Jug Of News. Here we go:
- Jug Of Snyder columnist Brady Bauman has a day job–sportswriter for the estimable Manhattan Mercury. As part of that job, he gets to do really cool things like talk to KSU defensive back Ty Zimmerman about his role as a leader.
- Speaking of football, the preseason individual accolades keep stacking up for the Wildcats. This time, it’s Arthur Brown and Tyler Lockett being named 2nd Team All-Americans by Sports Illustrated.
- One of the few positions of “concern” for this year’s football team is defensive tackle. With that in mind, Curtis Kitchen talked to DT Wes Hollingshead about how he fits in the Wildcats’ defensive system.
- ESPN Big 12 blogger David Ubben has his “Opening Camp” column up for the Wildcat football team.
- And on the basketball front, two pieces of news: the team is officially on their 10-day Brazil trip; and the Big 12 released the conference schedule. I posted the schedule (which includes 9 nationally-televised games, with two being ESPN “Big Monday” showdowns) along with a few comments on the highlights of the schedule from a KSU perspective.
That’s all for today, except for–of course–the traditional Kietzman Coda, and a few stories that you’ll probably like to read, if you missed them the first time around.
CODA: Kevin Kietzman–and his son, Spencer–are lying liars, who tried to convince people that former K-State great Jacob Pullen is a serial criminal. Just keeping that little tidbit front-of-mind, in hopes that people will pressure them both into issuing a full retraction and an apology.
