    Looks like we shouldn't play KSU

    According to KC radio and columnists. If KSU beats Texas this weekend, it's guaranteed that they will finish 10-2. Pretty bold support for a team that's won 6 of their 8 games by a combined margin of 24 points. KSU has had a great season. But, I wouldn't be betting my house that the ISU game is a lock.

    Let's let 'em keep thinking that ISU is a guaranteed win. I love over-confidence and looking past us at a BCS Bowl!

    Re: Looks like we shouldn't play KSU

    I have heard them refer to ISU as a 'Cupcake'. I hope KSU believes that.

    ISU matches up well with KSU. They are very one dimensional. ISU will need to keep the LB's close to the line of scrimmage. I would force Klein to throw, if this happens ISU wins.

    Re: Looks like we shouldn't play KSU

    I would love to keep myself believing that we have a chance of beating K-State. But... IMO KSU was worse for the past two seasons and we couldn't get it done in Arrowhead each time. They were close games, but I think KSU is MUCH better this year (they have proved it with their record) and our game is in Manhattan, where we struggle anyways.

    Most people just want to believe that we have a chance, because... well, it IS our best shot at winning out of our last three games. OSU and OU > KSU.

    Re: Looks like we shouldn't play KSU

    I actually expect us to win this game. I think Wally can dial up the right defense to combat Synder's 1940s-era-lookin' offense. Wally is the only coach Snyder has gone up against that can remember back to when this offense was popular.

    His 1940's lookin' offense must be pretty good to stymie all of the modern era defensive minds in college football. Maybe it's not as simple as you think.

    Yeah, because no one has tried this already this year. If they were easy to beat, they would've gotten beaten already by a team outside the top 10. Not to mention the extra week of getting everyone healed up. We'll more than have our hands full.

    This...Collin Klein's running ability is very underrated.

    Our three linebackers are underrated. This game is our best chance for a win.

    So underrated we give up 4.5 yards per carry and have given up more than 300 rushing yards in a game. The linebackers against Kansas State won't matter when the guards are releasing because our defensive line is poor and we don't get a hit on Klein until he's already 4 yards downfield plus his Arnaud-like bowling ball approach where he always gets an extra yard or two.

    Re: Looks like we shouldn't play KSU

    I don't have a good feeling about the KSU game either, to be honest.

    But I also have this feeling that if we're 5-6 going into that game, our team will be nasty to face off against. They'll be hungry for a bowl, combined with the vengeance factor against the Wildcats for the past two years. Never underestimate their motivation under CPR

    I'll be in Manhattan too but anyone saying "Oh yeah, just stack the box, we'll win easy that way" is a moron. Teams have tried. The problem with stacking the box is when you try to arm tackle him and miss, your safeties are 15 yards away after the first/second level is broken. Cutting down the space between the linemen and linebackers makes the job of the offensive linemen even easier.
