Jug of Snyder has a fancy new layout, but the formatting is something we’re still looking at. For the time being, links don’t appear to really pop on the page, so for now they’re highlighted with bold font (except for that example. If you try to click those bolded letters, nothing will happen). Here’s your daily Jug of News.
Following a disappointing 2-2 start, KC Kingdom is left reassessing K-State’s season:
The bottom line is that one quarterback needs to be picked to play all the snaps for the rest of the year. That quarterback needs to be Waters. It takes time to build a rhythm in the passing game. When Waters was able to have extended playing time in the second half against Texas, he was able to find open receivers and move K-State down the field.
Piling it on, Bring on the Cats examines how ‘sick’ the state of K-State football is:
I mean, the plays (and correct time to call them) have to be in that (bleeping) book somewhere, right? Anyways… Back to the inexplicable reasons for certain plays called at certain times with certain players, if what we’re watching is a whizzing contest between coaches, then … whatever.
Adam Suderman of the Associated Press has pointed out a stat that shouldn’t sit well with many fans:
The loss to the Longhorns was Kansas State’s second conference-opening loss since 2005, the final year of Snyder’s first tenure in Manhattan.
Despite the criticism and second-guessing, Bill Snyder has reaffirmed his commitment to the two-quarterback system:
“We have two quarterbacks that are playing well,” Snyder said. “And as I’ve said before, both deserve the opportunity to play and both will get the opportunity to play.
In equestrian news, K-State is number five in the nation and ready to host number four Oklahoma State.
Finally, basketball coach Bruce Weber is preparing for his earliest start to practice ever:
His main goal during that time: Integrating five freshmen into a roster that returns five scholarship players and three starters. It won’t be easy. K-State has a hole to fill at point guard without Angel Rodriguez, a void to fill on the wing without Rodney McGruder and depth to create inside without Jordan Henriquez.
That’s all for me, folks. Someone at work took advantage of the day off I took Wednesday to sign me up for JustFarmers.com using my work e-mail, so my day starts with a tall cup of coffee, more questions regarding this football team than answers, and hunting whoever’s been misusing technology to get me a date with cowgirl8369. Poor girl’s gonna be disappointed when she discovers I haven’t seen a wheat harvest in five years.
