Kansas State is off to a 3-0 start to the season and has a pretty big game against Baylor on Saturday, but there's still a pretty big question mark surrounding running back Bryce Brown. Brown's status with the Wildcats is up in the air at the moment. While he's still officially listed on the team's roster, according to The Manhattan Mercury, a school spokesman could not confirm or deny that Brown was still a member of the team on Wednesday.

"Just unfortunate," head coach Bill Snyder told the paper. "Bryce is going through some difficult times right now and we'll try to help him all we can." 

What exactly those difficult times are, Snyder did not say.

Brown was one of the top recruits in the country when coming out of high school and signed to play for Lane Kiffin at Tennessee. He then transferred to Kansas State, along with his brother, linebacker Arthur Brown, to be closer to his family in 2009. Odds are that Brown's difficulties are directly related to his playing time, as he only has 3 carries for 16 yards on the season.

He appeared in two series on offense in Kansas State's win over Miami, but never touched the ball and missed a block that led to Collin Klein being sacked.

Making matters worse for Brown, John Hubert had a great game against Miami, and Bill Snyder said Hubert would once again be the starter against Baylor, with Angelo Pease and Robert Rose behind him on the depth chart. Meaning that Brown is fourth in the pecking order in Manhattan. 

That is, if he's still with Kansas State.

Much needed studies, a great deal of thanks for your insight from the ghost writer. It happens to be complicated to my opinion finally, but yet usually, our proficiency not to mention appeal are mind-boggling. Much thank you all over again and moreover very good lady luck!

...he stayed in Knoxville all summer rather than in Manhattan and learn the offense.  He has stated publicly that he is begind in understanding the scheme.

Why do you think KSU paid him anything?  He was damaged goods as soon as Lane Kiffin bolted for USC.  KSU turned him down when he started the bidding war that UT won.  Most everyone with the exception of Lane Kiffin walked away from him after realizing he was a head case.  KSU gave him a soft landing and a chance to come back home and play with his brother.

As a Tennessee fan we was really excited when he signed with us in 2009.He was the top ranked running back by scout.He came in and play form game one and play alot for a freshman but then he had some issues come up and wanted to transfer.Now he is going through some difficult times again.Sounds like to me its the same o stuff with this guy.His brother transfered from miami to Kansas St.Not sure what his problem is but it seems like to me he was just over hypred and is not as good as he and everybody else thought he was.

I wonder if KSU is going to ask him for all of the money back that they gave him if he decides to leave.

What is clear is that Bryce Brown is a head case.  Oregon is fortunate not to have landed him.  Bryce fits right in there with Chris "I wanna be QB" Harper.  Good riddence.
