Ahh, he threw an interception. STONE THE HERETIC. (Scott Sewell-US PRESSWIRE)
It was absolutely not what many of us feared over the last week.. Yes, our pass defense was and remains suspect -- but did flash moments of brilliance, with the D-line recording some sacks (and didn't record two sacks inside Miami's red zone, because Stephen Morris coughed up the football and K-State recovered). The D was also tough within the red zone, which resulted in Miami's red zone efficiency suffering to the tune of one garbage-time TD, two field goals, and a turnover on downs in four trips. The run defense, however, appears to be NO problem, holding Miami to 43 yards, and Duke Johnson to only 22.
Offensively, the 'Cats absolutely destroyed the Hurricanes on the line of scrimmage, and slashed through the defense for 289 yards on the ground and 210 in the air, with Klein going 9/11 with a TD and one unfortunate interception. Honey Badger scored three times, Daniel Sams scored twice in relief, and John Hubert got in the end zone too.
A dominating performance against a name program, although to be fair and reasoned Miami's got a young, inexperienced squad. Still, this is probably the best I personally have felt about Wildcat football after two weeks since the Jonathan Beasley era, so I'll take it. How you feelin'?
