    KSU Weather Forecast - Impact on Game?

    Saturday's NWS forecast for Manhattan includes rain and possible snow.

    Saturday: A 50 percent chance of rain. Cloudy, with a high near 41.
    Saturday Night: A chance of rain and snow. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 26. Chance of precipitation is 40%.


    So who benefits from this? Neither team has a strong passing attack. Does removal of the pass threat make it easier to defend against Klein's runs? I see a small advantage for ISU playing in these conditions.

    Advantage KSU. From what I've seen of them, they like power running. Guys like West and Horned could really be neutralized by a wet field.

    I don't know about that - our defensive strength is shutting down power running, and clearly ISU's strength is running the ball, whether it's ShonJ, White, Woody, or Tiller just holding onto the ball.

    Re: KSU Weather Forecast - Impact on Game?

    Maybe we can get Steele Jantz involved in some running plays by alternating qbs if it gets real slippery out there.

    Maybe we need to shoot some gaps if it is slip sliding away time.

    Sounds like the field may be frozen. Need the right shoes.....

    Re: KSU Weather Forecast - Impact on Game?

    Kansas State ranks 27th in rush defense. I think it's pretty clear which team this would favor, especially if the wind picks up.

    I would warm up the toes of our punter. He needs to bring his A game.

    Hmmm. Shutting down power running? Not sure I agree with this, unless you are making a subtle difference between a rushing attack out of the spread vs a more conventional rushing attack.

    I think our defense matches up well against a passing team (Tech), or a team that relies on a playmaker that LJ can help shut down (Iowa, OSU). A team that is balanced and can effectively run the football has caused problems.

    MU and Baylor really ran wild on us. I am encouraged that we will do better against KSU, but I don't think we are very stout against the run. KSU will probably get 24 points. The key is that our offense needs to sustain drives, protect the football, and find a way to get to 28. I like 28-24, ISU victory.

    Re: KSU Weather Forecast - Impact on Game?

    KSU may have a better rush defense, but ISU ranks higher in rushing offense, passing offense, and total offense. ISU actually ranks better than KSU in most statistical categories.
    2011 Conference Only Football Statistics - Big 12 Conference - Official Athletic Site

    After looking at those, it kind of makes one wonder how KSU has a better record than we do. The only thing I can see as a differentiator is Klein who has been kind of an x-factor for them, but we now have Barnett on our side so I see that as an equalizer. I really expect it to be a good game.

    "If the wind picks up"....


    Have you ever been in that so called stadium in November???


    I guarantee you that the wind will be roaring through that stadium from the North and will impact the game....


    When the weather gets bad the team that can RUN the ball the best will win every game....


    I hope this is NOT gonna be another of those blowout games by KState....

    Re: KSU Weather Forecast - Impact on Game?

    I think our D is a good rush defense when they aren't gameplanning for a spread offense like Baylors. We know KSU is gonna run the ball. Time for Matty T to have a huge game.
