Will Collin Klein start against Missouri on Saturday? Or will Carson Coffman regain the top quarterback spot?
Kansas State football coach Bill Snyder did not address that topic during his weekly segment of the Big 12 Teleconference today, but he did say there is a chance both quarterbacks will see action.
“I’ve never been committed to saying that we can only play one guy,” he said. “We’re in a position where we have less than 70 guys on scholarship. We don’t have a stock pile of people. We have to play to the talents of the youngsters that we have.
“You have to utilize all your youngsters the best that you can. That’s true at the quarterback position like it is anywhere else … I don’t have a problem playing two.”
Never miss a local story.
Klein made the first start of his career against Texas two days ago and torched the Longhorns with his running ability. The sophomore rushed for 127 yards and two touchdowns, and added a whole new element to the Wildcats’ running attack. But he was also asked to throw the ball four times. Coffman is a stronger passer.
Snyder said he would like more balance against Missouri. So platooning both quarterbacks could make some sense. (more…)
