Bryce Brown and Kansas State looks to make some noise in the Big 12 in 2011.

KR: Tramaine Thompson (So. 94 Ovr)
PR: Bryce Brown (So. 97 Ovr)
Offense: The offense is lead by Tennessee transfer and former number one recruit, Bryce Brown. Brown is a perfect fit for Coach Nyydus's Spread Offense. He is spelled by fellow sophomore John Hubert who plays much larger than his 5'7" 185 pound frame would lead you to believe. Collin Klein is the trigger man for the offense. He fits the offense adequately and can manage the game while getting the ball in the hands of his playmakers. The receiving corps are lead by wide receivers Chris Harper and Broderick Smith and tight end Travis Tannahill. Sophomore Tramaine Thompson will occupy the slot, or Z Back position, in the offense where he will see action in the receiving game and running game.
Defense: Quarterbacks will learn to fear the Wildcat defense this season. The defense is lead by a strong group of linebackers and a solid secondary. Junior Arthur Brown, brother of Bryce, is a transfer from Miami and will be starting at LOLB next to seniors Emmanuel Lamur and Alex Hrebec. Corner David Garrett is regarded as one of the best defenders in the Big 12 and one of the best corners in the country. He is looking to have a strong senior season to help his stock for the 2012 draft. He has help over the top from sophomore free safety Ty Zimmerman, who coach Nyydus is extremely high on, and fellow senior Tysyn Hartman.

Week 1 Recruiting
Benjamin Brown (C #27) - 6'5" 309 from Fremont, NE
With 3 Seniors on the offensive line this season, Brown could definitely make an early impact whether it is in his true freshman season or after a redshirt.
Bryce Brown went down early in the first with a mild concussion but will have a bye week to get prepared for a conference game against SMU in Week 3.
NOTE: Probably not gonna do reports like this. Normally it would be much more simple and include pictures but the K-State AV Crew was too busy getting hammered to get game tape and pictures to post.
How did you do this? Inquiring minds want to know. Outstanding!!!!
Operation Sports Dynasty Table Generator. Then I Prnt Scrn'd it and put the jpeg on Photobucket because I couldn't get the HTML to work. It's actually a pretty nice system.
Kansas State - 52
SMU - 45
This game turned into a shootout quickly. Kyle Padron led the Mustangs out to a 24-7 lead in the second quarter and hopes for the Wildcats were dwindling. Luckily Sammuel Lamur, who came in after Colin Klein went down with an injury, rallied the team to close the lead down to 7 points before half time. From then on it was the Bryce Brown show for the Wildcats. A few timely turnovers caused by the defense closed out the game and Kansas State was able to escape town with the win.
Samuel Lamur - 10/13 for 194 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT
Bryce Brown - 33 carries for 286 yards and 3 TD
Cole Bachamp - 6 catches for 98 yards and 1 TD
Tramaine Thompson - 3 catches for 78 yards and 1 rushing TD
Kyle Padron - 31/49 for 578 yards, 5 TD and 4 INT
Darius Johnson - 10 catches for 201 yards and 1 TD
Week 2 Recruiting
Keith Rodgers (TE #57) - 6'2" 275 pounds from Independence, MO
Rodgers is an athletic prospect with good run blocking skill and should make a solid impact in a few years.
18 scholarships remaining.
Kansas State - 35
#23 Georgia - 31
For the second week in a row, the Wildcats spent most of the game trying to come from behind. This week a few mistakes and awful throws from Kansas State QB Collin Klein lead to the Bulldogs taking a 21-10 lead into half time. It was again up to the Wildcat defense and Bryce Brown to lead the team to victory and they answered the call. The defense intercepted Georgia's backup QB a total of 5 times including one to seal the game when the Bulldogs were threatening in the late moments of the game. Bryce Brown had another game but the offense, outside of him, really had troubles with the defense.
Collin Klein - 9/24 for 101 yards, 1 TD and 2 INT with 2 rushing TD
Bryce Brown - 23 carries for 227 yards and 1 TD
Tramaine Thompson - 3 catches for 52 yards
Kansas State - 37
#21 Miami - 27
Finally the Wildcats spent an entire game out in front of their opponent. In what proved to be a trap for the #21 ranked Hurricanes, who were riding high after upsetting Ohio State the previous week, the Kansas State defense proved to be very stout, only allowing 4 first downs the entire game. Miami did have their fair share of big plays though and that's what kept the game close towards the end. Bryce Brown did his thing again carrying the load for the Wildcat offense but we may soon be seeing a shake up at the quarterback position as Collin Klein was pulled at half time in favor of the veteran Sammuel Lamur.
Sammuel Lamur - 12/16 for 115 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT
Bryce Brown - 34 carries for 212 yards and 2 TD
John Hubert - 6 carries for 69 yards
After a big victory against Miami, Coach Nyydus has announced that Sammuel Lamur will be the starter for next week's matchup with Baylor.
Here is a statistical comparison between Klein and Lamur:
Lamur - 22/29 for 309 yards, 2 TD and 2 INT
Klein - 33/72 for 304 yards, 3 TD and 8 INT
It is easy to see why the change was made but I'm sure we can expect to see Klein in some certain situations to take advantage of his legs and get him prepared for next season.
