Jordan Webb tops Keegans against Kansas State


1. Jordan Webb: The well-drilled, well-conditioned Kansas State defense didn’t leave opportunities for long passes, so the efficient Webb took what the defense gave him and dinked and dunked his way to 21 for 28 with 169 yards and a touchdown.

2. Jeremiah Hatch: One week after leaving the game early and suffering from temporary paralysis, the senior co-captain showed why he’s a captain.

3. Steven Johnson: Linebacker refuses to let the failure of those around him taint his consistently strong effort.

4. James Sims: Sheer power enabled him to get into the end zone.

5. Tony Pierson: The quickest guy on team can slip through tiny holes. He averaged 4.6 yards on eight carries.

6. Kale Pick: Repeatedly found the openings on short routes. Caught six passes for 51 yards.

7. Jimmay Mundine: Always looks good when used late in games. The tight end had four catches for 41 yards and a touchdown.

8. Quinn Mecham: Connected on 4 of 8 passes for 41 yards and a touchdown in mop-up duty.

9. JaCorey Shepherd: Freshman has a high ceiling and snazzy moves, as he showed on a 17-yard reception.

10. Tanner Hawkinson: Helped Webb get enough protection to pass for short gains.

You should quit ranking guys all the way down to 10. We didn't have 10 guys worthy of being ranked. It should just be the top 5. Evidence: the backup QB and a receiver with ONE reception get ranked. One reception is enough to be one of the top 10 performers of the day? Sheesh.

Really brilliant comment Mr. Couch Potato. If you didn't see at least 10 players leave it all out there, you're blind...

If you saw 10 performances worthy of praise yesterday, you are more observant than me.

I have a little trouble with Webb being above Johnson and Hatch when he gives them a short field in the 3rd just because he doesn't cover up the ball with 2 hands when falling in traffic. Instead, he tries break his fall with his right hand. Besides being good for a fumble, it' also a good way to seperate a shoulder.

It reminds me of a drill I watch my HS BB team run one practice. One player, a "defender", stode in the lane, and another player ran into him. He had to keep he feet set and take the charge, or he stood up and had another player run into him. They did it for 20 minutes straight in order for Terry Green (went on to be HM AllState) to get it. Do we really keep drills for players to learn to cover up the ball with two hands when falling to the ground?

When it is thrid and long and we throw consistently for 3 yards and then kick it, wouldn't we be better to throw it 12-15 yards even if most of those go incomplete, getting a first down even once in while would be a blessing. Never getting it if you don't reach for it.

Bench Webb for a while, give Mecham the start; he has more poise than Webb and seems to understand options rather that set plays.

Agree with Mecham starting as he moved the team right down the field to score. But then again why not look to the future and start the #3 QB Blake Jablonski. Jablonski had great success in moving the team down the field in the Spring Game and has looked very sharp in leading the Scout Team this season.
Receivers were wide open on the past couple of Saturday's, but Webb just did not see them. The middle is always wide open which made Mecham's last drive so successful. KSU's weaken was in the middle, but it was never exploited.
This team needs new blood.
