Tajiri Smith

I’m on my phone and can’t get the link to work but for anyone out there who is a fan of defensive football go check out the video on this kid. Rivals has a good video on YouTube of him and he has highlights up on Hudl. This kid will fit well in the nickel position for KSU’s defensive scheme. Very fl...

Re: How much does Minnesota pay these Kansas highschool players?

FWIW I have seen it posted on another site that while Thomas is still solid with Minnesota, KSU is still in contact with him and not totally out of the mix. Some of this information has come from Thomas himself. It will be interesting to watch as the season continues to unfold and signing day gets c...

Re: TCU 1:30 kick ...

I agree about some of our freshman playmakers at both RB and WR. We need to see more of them as the season progresses. I hope with the bye week we will see more of them VS TCU Kleiman alluded to seeing more freshman in the coming weeks during his press conference this week. He talked about putting ...

Re: I thought our Oline would be a strength. Opinions?

I agree with WildWillie on this one. With the difference in the run scheme this year three man fronts require the Oline to climb to the second level quite a bit. They also have to be able to get their proper leverages to pin their man down or cover a gap due to another lineman pulling. This all is ...

According to what I’ve heard it’s a big time recruit for the 2021 class that will be announcing the weekend of the TCU game.

Re: HCCK

Lol I love the Kleiman shrine you have going. In all seriousness though I think his approach to supporting players when mistakes are made and focusing on needing the players and rallying around them instead of focusing on the mistake will attract players to come play for him. His post game presser w...

Re: Recruiting Thread

I could see Price getting moved to LB. He’s a big, athletic kid and could potentially provide the team with an athletic 240# MLB which could be very beneficial in this defensive scheme. Also Kleiman always had a MLB like that at NDSU.

Re: let's talk mistakes

Honestly the only mistake that I heard today that really bothered me was the continual radio call by Wyatt referencing defenders taking bad angles causing them to miss tackles. I understand it’s for injury reasons but it’s sad to see how poor tackling has gotten compared to how much we were drilled ...

Re: K-State vs MS St...... updates from Starkville

Best thing that stood out today was this team never quit. They believed the whole game they could win. Also seeing the team not be physically out matched and manhandled the way they were last year was good to see.
