The blitz where Holl ran it in, Kendall Adams ran/was pushed so far outside and past Hill it made me laugh. Our outside blitzing is hilarious.

They probably thought the game time last week and this week were great times to try and play football.

If LHC Bill Snyder had been hired at KU years ago, we'd have a national championship in football and a couple more BCS bowls. - beems

Anyone with a brain: K State should keep running the ball and keep the clock moving so they at least maintain a 2 touchdown lead going to halftime.

KSU coaches: No, denied.

LOLOLOL, Klatt just called out Dana Dimel for a terrible playcall that resulted in an awful turnover.

For the record, this happened after He Who Smelton Delton and Co. had been having tons of success during a 21-7 first half ass beating running and passing the ball in super tiny chunks. We were obviously trying to get a score while simultaneously bleeding out the clock and make our drive the last drive of the half. Welp nope, Delton throws real far downfield and straight to an OU D-back, who returns it like 700 yards to our 12 yard-line. I'm completely paraphrasing here, but Klatt says something to the effect of, "That just falls on Dana Dimel. Why would you throw that far downfield with an inexperienced QB when the small chunks were working so well?"


Dimel has called a pretty good game so far, but it's still nice to see him getting destroyed on national TV.

Wasn't Warmack in on that drive too?  I don't get why you wouldn't stick with the wild success of Barnes and Silmon either.  Gotta be creative, I guess.

:lol:

We get the ball on our own ~35 or w/e with :36 left in the half. Again it seems at first like we have no idea whether we're going to try to get in FG range or run out the clock. Delton runs a nice 9-yard run and goes down in bounds with :26 left. We just let the clock run for another five seconds before we finally decide to use one of our two remaining time outs.

Then, with :06 left in the half, we attempt a 59-yard field goal that ends up bouncing off the crossbar. We probably could've used the extra five seconds we wasted at the beginning to push the ball forward 6 inches so McCrane could've made that field goal.


*EDIT* This stud post was in the "Has McCrane Ever Made An Important Field Goal?" thread, but it may as well be linked in here for posterity too.

3rd and 14 deep in our own territory, and we throw a lil pass to our RB and he catches it 4 yards behind the line of scrimmage. Stunningly, we did not convert the 3rd down. :lol:

i liked the part where we were up 21-7 with the ball. having it run it straight down ou's throats all half and then dial up a delton bomb that turns into a pic and an ou fg and turns around all momentum

It's a scenario I've NEVER SEEN played out in front of our eyes before.  Maybe we should take notes?

Turned off the TV at this point.  Why bother watching if the players aren't given the opportunities to make plays without the element of surprise/WTF?  Delton moved the ball on that last drive when they let him pass the ball downfield like a regular QB.  Maybe we should try less contrarian BS and just let our O try to execute (?).

When considering this game, make sure to note that we blew a big lead, even a 10-point halftime lead. Which all play-by-play guys used to tell us Snyder never did. If the Mustang fires everybody I will be giddy AF and doing this in the streets:

Delton should have been picked twice on his passes to pringle. Floating ducks.

no crap. this game was just osu last year, osu the year before, texas this year, tcu in 2015, etc. there's no end. i hate to say it, but i think this is the end of bill. we'll finish 5-7 and mean gene will have to earn his money in the offseason.

I thought the 65 plays between touches for Barnes, particularly considering his 30+ ypc average, was questionable.

The frustrating thing is that Dimel or Hayes can make 600K per year and have all this responsibility, but are only allowed to speak to the media once per year. It's ridiculous that they don't get to answer questions that should be asked.

i think snyder's plan is to have seiler be dc, collin bc oc, and sean to be hc. i think he will "retire" after this season and "consult" from his box from his west stadium club suite. i also think he thinks taylor is his stooge and will make that all happen.

Inflexibility always seems to be one of the virtues of our offense.

Quote
Barnes found a hole between the tackles and outran everyone to the end zone for a 75-yard touchdown. Not only was it his longest run of the season, it was a confidence booster.

Oddly, though, he only touched saw five more carries, leaving many to wonder, why?

K-State coach LHC Bill Snyder explained the Wildcats preferred to run formations that featured quarterback Alex Delton, who ran for 142 yards and three touchdowns on 27 carries. The majority of those plays call for a lead blocker, instead of a running back.
