However since K State is not competing for a BCS Title this year no biggy, just a pre season game with bad results.
It is alarming that there was no sign of a sustainable running game.
24 minutes time of possession NOT GOOD. When K State beat RGIII the Wildcat offense had the ball for about 40 minutes RGIII had it for about 20 and K State won the game by 1 point. Can you imagine what RGIII could have done with an additional 16 minutes on offense?
Point being, if K State does not show up in Austin with a running game we are likely to see a score reminiscent of Futility U.
How hard can it be? Just grab 3 of the biggest 2nd string linemen you can find, convert them to running backs in a full house backfield and run 1 ton of Wildcat between the Guard and Tackle every play until you run out of downs. It certainly has a better chance of success than the nonsense they were running against NDSU.
Changing gears now, Could it be, that K State is getting screwed in a second hand sort of way by Jerry Sandusky? When I get access to a time machine I’d like to go back in time, put Sandusky in jail 10 years ago, then in 2012/13 Jake Waters actually goes to Penn State and Daniel Sams is the starting QB for the Wildcats and in the revised future/past, the Grand opening of the West Stadium Center and the reveal of the 8 ft Bronze likeness of St. Bill are accompanied by a 45-7 trouncing of NDSU as Daniel Sams takes over where Colin Klein left off.
I don’t mean to make light of Jake Waters, I’m sure he will be a good to great pocket passer and maybe even have a much better shot at the NFL than Collin Klein. BUT APPARENTLY K State’s coaching staff hasn’t figured out how to game plan for a passing game that can be effective and still take enough time off the clock to keep Big 12 offenses from rolling up 60 points.
Someone tell me if I’m off my rocker or just dead wrong, based on the NDSU game it is very difficult to imagine K State winning 6 games this year.
