Updated: Kansas State rolls over Miami

Collin Klein AP

Don’t let Kansas State’s 51-9 win over Missouri State in Week 1 fool you. The Wildcats were only up 16-9 at the start of the fourth quarter. Against a (presumably) better opponent in Miami, however, K-State racked up 14 first quarter points.

It was a familiar scene for the Hurricanes. UM was down 14-0 to Boston College last week before roaring back and winning 41-32.

Mimi wasn’t as lucky this time, getting rolled 52-13 against the No. 21 Wildcats. The ‘Canes defense had no answer all day for Collin Kleinwho only needed nine completions on 11 attempts to get the job done.

K-State keeps going against the Big 12 norm by running the ball at a grinding pace. Bill Snyder‘s team ran the ball 60 times for 289 yards today. It’s Twilight Zone-ish, but K-State has a real identity and doesn’t look like a team that will be easily beaten this year.

It’s a team that doesn’t make mistakes either. Klein had one interception, but the team committed just two penalties for 12 yards. If nothing else — because, let’s face it, Miami looks equally bad — K-State is a smart, disciplined football team.

    What a beat down. Is K-State really this good? Or is Miami really this bad? The Wildcats are clawing the Hurricane a new one, while the Hurricane more resembles a tropical depression….

    Miami has no defense. Literally none. They can’t stop the run or the pass. I really can’t figure out what those 11 kids are doing out there. You would think that they would accidentally find themselves in the right place at the right time at least once in a while.

    Freshmen and sophmores are not going to out muscle upper classmen. These kids will develope over the next 2 years and we will see a better team in time.

    K State has been impressive under Bill Snyder. Will they win the B12? I doubt it, but they will make it interesting and finish the year ranked in the top 15. They should give OU and Texas fits.

    Wow. I wonder how much miami made for showing up and getting the beat down, like those poor bastards that are about to play FSU?

    Yes, I know. Total low blow. 😉

    What was your excuse last year in Miami? Was it the same crew of officials there?

    Hahaha no no excuse Miami would have lost with good officiating, their young guys have to learn how to get the officials attention in the trenches…..

    I mean 2 penalties all game, one being a helmet to helmet hit on tha QB….something is up with that man….Kstate isn’t that disciplined…
