Klieman told reporters attending media day that’s he’s pleased with where the Wildcats are at right now in the fall. “Even though it’s early on I was a little concerned with where we would pick up from where we left off in the spring. Would it be from practice four or from practice fourteen, and really that we were able to pick up from practice fourteen and continue on.”
Klieman stated one area where the Wildcats need to continue to improve is in special teams. “Simply because there so’s much emphasis in the spring, offensive schemes, defensive schemes and those guys learning that. Now they have a pretty good grasp of those, we need to continue to get better but now it’s on to the special teams and spending more time on those.”
Kansas State will open play on August 31 when the Wildcats host Nichols. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. Other home games for K-State will include Bowling Green on September 7, Baylor October 5, TCU October 19, Oklahoma October 26, West Virginia November 16 and Iowa State November 30.
