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.

I couldn't make this up. He's talking about launching a Senate investigation if it's found McConnell (R-KY) had something to do with it. Grab some popcorn. (No politics please. This is equally stupid on all sides.)

Does anyone know if there's even a game this weekend? I'm sure we're playing somebody, but I can't remember with all of this realignment stuff going on.

Somehow, they did it again.  The Cardiac Cats are 6-0 and bowl eligible in the month of October. Let's just enjoy every week of this ride, guys and gals.  Let's party like it's 1999!

Well, here's to hoping the second half sucks less than the first half.  28-20 Tech at the half.  KSU gets the ball to start the second half.

"I came from a different program [transferring from Oregon]. Things are different here. You see how tough we are as a team. You see in the fourth quarter -– like we were in Miami and those dudes were breathing harder than us and they play in that climate -- that what we do works. "And when you see that, if you're a smart person, you'll buy in and do what he says."

Chris Harper quoted in a CBS Sports article with writer Brett McMurphy.

Go. Get. Them.

Look, I get it. We're waiting on Missouri. Blah blah. Yada yada. In the meantime, Louisville and West Virginia, and their combined three BCS bowl games, and ten Final Fours, are just sitting there waiting by the phone. I mean, JFC, guys. Just invite them. If Mizzou goes to the (insert conference here), then go get Cincy and their 2 BCS bowls and be done with it. I swear, Big 12, if you screw this up, we all deserve for this conference to dissolve.

Okay, I don't know what you really can or can't believe, but I guess we'll see on Thursday. If they really agree to hand over revenues, I'll be floored. FLOORED.

OU Demands Removal of Beebe for Conference Survival

259

Well, duh. Oh, and they want hard rules on the scope of the LHN, which no conference will accept as is. So, Texas' options are: Stay in the Big 12 with limited LHN, or go somewhere else with no LHN. Decisions, decisions....

We are officially at DEFCON 1. Currie, you better have a plan, and that plan better be something more tangible than reforming some crappy equivalent of Conference USA.

"The general feeling right now is we want to do everything that we can to keep the Big 12 together in as close a form as we can to the current configuration," a high-ranking official at a Big 12 university said. "We need stability and a longer-term commitment from the big guys so we can become 12 again down the road."

Pete Thamel in a New York Times article posted a few hours ago. This is the first time I've seen confirmation from a legitimate source that the ultimate goal is to return to twelve teams.

And if Oklahoma and OSU were to climb aboard in the next few days or weeks, then Scott would take the time to make sure Texas is off the table … and then he’d move on. How long he’d wait for Texas to decide its future, I have no idea. But eventually the Pac-14 would examine other options for its 15th and 16th teams. (The league has probably done some of that legwork already.) Without question, Kansas and Kansas State would be given serious consideration — and those schools would know they were receiving serious consideration, thus delaying a possible move to the Big East.

Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News. Uh, we got options? Big East? Pac-16 if UT passes?
