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.

Of note: Strength coach Scott Greenawalt's newest contract made him employed by #KState, not men's basketball as was previously the case.

Martin remains the basketball coach at Kansas State, but it's already begun. After complaining via text that I couldn't get Currie to return a phone call on Saturday night, a response from a different member of Martin's camp appeared immediately. "Welcome to Frank's world," the message said. A relationship that has always been somewhat fractured is in the process of crumbling.

The Big 12 is negotiating a new media rights deal with ABC/ESPN and Fox that would be worth at least $2.6 billion or $20 million annually per school, television industry sources told CBSSports.com's Dennis Dodd and Brett McMurphy.

Dennis Dodd and Brett McMurphy. I thought this deserved front page attention.

ksu_FAN, a moderator and contributor and goEMAW.com, is one of the absolute best voices/minds following KSU sports in a professional or amateur forum. This is a very good take on statistical evidence backing up what Kansas State does well when they win,and what they do poorly when they lose.

17 Wildcats are Fall Graduates

Let's give congratulations to the seventeen members of the KSU football team that earned their degrees this fall. That includes standouts such as Klein, Harper, and BOTC first-team all-Big12 pick, David Garrett. However, Klein and Harper, you've got eligibility left, so go get a Master's degree or a dual major or something. You can't leave yet. TB will find you and hug your leg until you promise you won't go.
