I'm a thirty-something father, husband, and K-State fan (in that order). I have a limited knowledge of information that most people would find useful, however, I have an inordinate amount of useless trivia and sports-related factoids at my disposal, and I love to write stories that make people laugh (which is ultimately what lead me here).

My role at "Bring on the Cats" is to provide levity, satire, and hopefully a few laughs here and there. I am no journalist, nor do I pretend or care to be. I leave that to much more capable bloggers than myself.

Also, from time to time, I like to challenge the status quo and common thinking because at Kansas State, we love the status quo and group think. Love it.

Stick with us, folks

As you can tell, some big stuff is happening here at SB Nation and BOTC. As such, we've encountered a few hurdles this morning that we're trying to work through. So, just keep an eye on the site...

BBall Recruiting: Matt Atewe Claims KSU Favorite After Visit

Short blurb on Matt Atewe's visit to KSU. We're looking for a big to round out the class of 2013, and it appears Atewe is the main target, and for good reason.

Fix this, Pencilneck

K-State and FSN couldn't come to an agreement on Tier 3 KSU basketball games. Fix it, John. Fix it now. Because the largest concentration of K-State alumni in the world has now lost access to 33% of our basketball games.

Pre-Snap Read Review of No. 17 Kansas State

This is a preview that's about as good as it's going to get from a national perspective. I have to really congratulate these guys because their previews are about as comprehensive as it gets this side of Phil Steele (and in some ways, they're better).

Kansas Jayhawks, Big 12 Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium, capacity: up to 52,000 September 15, 2018 Interestingly enough, the Jayhawks digs come in just 454 seats short of the High Point Solution Stadium capacity. It is not one of the bigger stadiums, but the "Rock Chalk Jayhawk" chant is one of the college cheers to hear at least once in person. If you met any of the folks from Kansas State and Iowa State over previous bowl seasons, you know Big 12 fans are a hospitable and football knowledgeable bunch. It will be the longest trip to Manhattan you will ever make from New Jersey.

This is getting front page treatment because it's so hilarious. It's a one minute video with a minute's worth of outtakes. This is so gloriously Aggie of them.

According to two people with the strongest ties possible to Florida State's Athletic Department, FSU fully plans on exiting the Atlantic Coast Conference. Florida State will begin its transition to the Big 12 Conference beginning this June. One source went as far as to say, "at this point the move is inevitable."

Bruce Weber takes over for Frank Martin, who had the Wildcats set up for a continuous run near the top of the Big 12. Weber didn't forget how to coach at Illinois. He is one of the more respected teachers of the game. He just had a bad marriage with the Illini, and it couldn't be repaired. Rodney McGruder should stay and play for Weber since he'll be a senior. The core of this team returns to push the rest of the Big 12. Weber's first season should be a success.
