Snyder talks about Klein and concussions
Bill Snyder didn't offer any definitive answers, but in Snyder-speak this is about as good as it gets. The Kansas State head coach during the Big 12 teleconference on Monday twice indicated that he hopes senior quarterback Collin Klein, the Heisman frontrunner, is able to play when the third-ranked Wildcats visit TCU on Saturday.
It was Snyder's usual dry wit that suggested perhaps an optimistic forecast less than 48 hours after Klein remained on the sideline during the third quarter of the Wildcats' 44-30 win over Oklahoma State.
Bill, I've gotta ask, how's Collin?
Is he going to play Saturday?
You know so?
Can you talk about the history, you've been around so long, as to how concussions were treated back in the day and how just they're evaluated now, in general terms?
Collin was walking around without his helmet on Saturday, which would indicate that was the case. That's what you usually do when a guy's got a head injury. Was that the case? Was it something else? Or both?
How well do you know TCU's Gary Patterson? I know you guys have shared time at those Nike retreats, but seeing he was a graduate of K-State and played there, have you guys gotten to know each other very well?
Real quick on TCU's offense, they have a lot of young players and they've been kind of up and down, how do you assess what makes them good this year?
You were in so many games that were tight last year, what's it been like this year to have that not be the case quite as often?
I was told you guys are one of the few teams that runs full-contact, full-speed practices and if that's accurate, do you think that helps you as a team?
Do you think that could actually help you avoid injuries, or does it toughen the team up at all, or is that just coincidence?
You haven't lost any games at home, but every other Big 12 team has lost at least one league home game, and home teams are actually under .500 this year in league play. Is something different in the league? Are teams closer together? Is there an explanation as to why teams in what has been a very good league are under .500 at home right now?
