Game Balls and Gassers: Kansas State


Candidates for Game Balls

Jeremiah Hatch, taken off the field on a stretcher the week before when he had no feeling in his limbs, returned to action and never stopped hustling.

Linebacker Steven Johnson brings it every play.

Candidates for Gassers

• Every player on the field when Kansas State completed the pass that set up the field goal at the end of the first half.

Every player on the field when K-State opened the second half with Tyler Lockett's kick return for a touchdown.

• Every player on the field when Kansas was flagged for three penalties on the same play.

Need to include the coaches starting with Gill. He may have the players respect but he does not have the players motivated to play.

Exactly. Should read: Every player on the field and coach on the sideline.

Loss of composure and a lack of discipline. Gill seems to have become strict in holding players accountable for their off of the field actions, but not accountable for their mishaps in action on the field.

That one play had more penalties against KU than KSU had the whole game...

That Gasser list focused on three plays...there were a lot more problems than those three plays.

I agree with previous comments, errect a little pedastle and place HCTG on that...he is King Gasser.

I believe that it is obvious that not practicing Kick-Offs and playing 2 hand touch in practice is not working out.
