Kansas State Offense

Kansas State Quarterback Collin Klein_-584467556872794146
What do you need to know about the Kansas State offense?  

Two words: Collin Klein.

The junior QB leads the Wildcats in passing and rushing, accounting for 38 total touchdowns and close to 3000 yards.  He’s just 1 rushing score shy of tying Ricky Williams for the Big 12 record.  Yes, you’re correct.  Williams was a Heisman-winning running back at Texas.  Klein’s been THAT good.

He would also tie former Navy QB Rickey Dobbs for the most single-season rushing TD’s by a quarterback. 

As expected, when we met with the K-State offensive earlier this morning, he was the topic of conversation.

EVERYONE on this team looks up to him, whether it’s for his toughness or willingness to openly share his faith.  I even heard the Tebow word tossed around a little bit. 

I’m pretty excited about the feature we’ll have on him coming up tonight.

As for the rest of the media session, here are some quick hits:

– Kansas State’s co-offensive coordinators Dana Dimel and Del Miller both said scouting the Razorback D has been tough because of new coordinator Paul Haynes.  They said they’ve doubled the film they typically use, so they could watch both Arkansas and Haynes’ former school, Ohio State.

– Clock control seems to be a key for Kansas State.  They hold the ball for over 30 minutes a game, ranking nationally in the Top 10.  A smart tactic against the Big 12 teams with explosive offenses, or like the one that the Wildcats will see Friday night at Cowboys Stadium.

– As for the players, they said they were well aware of the Hogs tackling problems early in the season, specifically citing the Texas A&M game.

That’s all for now, I’ll check back after we meet with the Razorbacks defense this afternoon.
