Game Day Kansas State 09/05/09

A K-State athletic dept image.

Matty Vautour says UMass has a big test in the opener.

Kyle Havens is in the hot seat.

WWLP has UMass set for the season.

Ron Chimelis does a guest blog on "Bring on the Cats"

The Kansas State Collegian scouts the Minutemen.


BTW, it didn't take long for FCS to win one over FBS as Villanova beat Temple 27-24. That's the fifth straight year a CAA team has beaten a FBS/I-A team.

And Big Ten Team Indiana just bearly escaped EKU.


Looks like a big crowd here in Manhattan. Mrs. Blog and I have already run into some UMass folks.


Memo to Wildcat fans: I only saw Kansas stuff in the Kansas City Airport shops.


The NCAA has a new thing for teams to shake hands before kickoff. Wonder if that will happen tonight?

It didn't work at Oregon.


My motel wireless connection is a little slow, so I'm going to stop now. I'll probably post some comments after the game.

Go UMass!

frank, I happened to be down in Long Island, for the Stony Brook vs Hofstra , and Stony Brook look like men amongst boys, if it wasnt for the crucial mistakes made by the seawolves, the score would be completely different, the wolves had a fumble recovery for a TD overturned, an in bounds TD catch, which the ref call out of bounds, a fumble on the 1 yrd line recovered by hofstra on 4th down for a TD, 3 out of the 4 quarters the seawolves pounded the pride but due to stupid mistakes the game came out to be in Prides favor. Umass should whoop up on Hofstra with no problem, but Stony Brook could be a totally new threat.
