The straight scoop
from Colonel Mustard
Nov. 16, 1998
I still can't believe we lost. I
know there are many what-ifs from this
game, but one thing I'm sure of is that
if Alexander doesn't get hurt, we win.
No matter what else happens.
throw play-action passes all day on
first down. Did you see how long Crouch had
to throw? He is the QB next year
because we need both of them on the
field. Bobby plays WB because it's good
for the team and he will play WR in the
pros. But Crouch came of age and played
great. He has a fine arm and runs the
option very well. And he also knows how to play under
control. His hestitation on a QB draw
on the last TD drive and his last TD
pass to Jackson were special.
defense continues to put no pressure on
the passer. We never look like we are
in control on defense. Kelsay his been
superb, but no one else has stepped up.
Vanden Bosch has to play more because
he makes things happen.
The bottom line is that I'm really
tired of losing and having to watch
Frank put a happy face on it. I'm a
huge supporter of Frank, but again on
Saturday we couldn't get the plays in and had consecutive delay penalties. But
the good news is that our team is
finally mad and I think tired of
this. Second: the best team in K-State
history is one play better than our
worst team in 20 years at home. And
last is that next year your team will
feature an experienced Crouch at QB and
Miller at FB and cousin Matt and Bobby
at WR and Wistrom and DeBates at TE and
Alexander and I think a top 5 hotshot
tailback recruit. Running behind a line with four
returning starters and a veteran defense. I can't wait till next year.
