It reminds me of the days at Haymaker 8! Those who know me,
our routine, would be doing the dance and chant right now. Our version of the Wabash Cannonball…Would Willie be missing his little car again?
After back to back big wins over Miami and then-15th-ranked
Baylor, Bill Snyder has our boys back in the national picture once again. The
solid leadership of Collin Klein and the stellar play of Arthur Brown kept
Robert Griffin III at bay just enough to preserve a 36-35 win and a 4-0
Brown picked off RG3 for the first time all year after the Baylor QB was hit on a throw inside the game’s final six minutes setting up a game-winning field goal by Anthony Cantele. Not too bad for a couple of Wichita boys. Brown played high school ball at Wichita East, while Cantele kicked for
Kapaun Mount Carmel. Collin Klein contributed 247 yards of total offense,
running for 113 yards on 25 carries.
The ‘Cat defense didn’t allow a running back to gain more than than eight yards on a single carry, and although Griffin and WR Kendall Wright had huge days statistically, KSU sneaks away with it’s second
consecutive win in the final minutes, and the third of the season thus far.
Last week’s win over Miami was a big one. This was bigger. If Bill’s boys can get by Mizzou this weekend, the schedule sets up nicely for a 7-0 showdown with Oklahoma in a few weeks.
My words of wisdom for Bill…start spreading the word that the little apple looks like they’ve found the next Tim Teebow!
