Slate: Football Friday!

Nell Redmond-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve got some nice juicy football nuggets for you today, plus some news from soccer and volleyball.

Our sincerest apologies for no slate yesterday faithful readers. Fear not, as we’re back for Friday with a slew of football news.

Football

Good news Wildcats fans. Only 3(!) Saturday’s left until college football returns. Let that sink in for a moment.

Wildcat reciever D.J. Render’s experiment as a safety this spring is now a permanent move. The move will give Render a better opportunity to earn playing time this fall.

One area of weakness that appears to have been shored up is running back. With the additions of graduate transfers Jordon Brown and James Gilbert plus the added depth of some freshman recruits the once worrisome running back corp now has plenty of options for coach Chris Klieman to choose from.

The biggest change this fall comes not from the players or team, but from the media. Kansas State has given reporters a total of eight days of availability including two open practice sessions. Chris Klieman seems at ease with this shift in media policy sayings he’s simply doing his job “when Kenny (Lannou) tells me there’s a media obligation).

Today, Kellis Robinett dropped his weekly K-State Q and A which features the pressing question of beer sales at The Bill.

Soccer

On Wednesday, Kansas State announced the soccer schedule for the 2019 season. All home games will be available to watch via streaming broadcasts on ESPN+. The Wildcats will open the season August 29th at 7 p.m.

Volleyball

Also Wednesday, Kadye Fernholz, a 6-foot-1 middle hitter and two time first team all-state selection, announced her commitment to K-State volleyball.
