    I think he's better than Tebow. Bigger and stronger. Dude is doing it without top recruits too. Tebow had Percy Harvin, Chris Rainey, Jeff Demps, Riley Cooper, Louis Murphy, and Aaron Hernandez who all made it to the NFL.

    It's a good comparison but Klein is bigger and can throw it better IMO. You are right all he does is wins. Peeps around here are talking about them running the table. The W tonight will really get the talk ramped up even more. I'm anxious to see how the Heisman voting goes.

    agree! if Kstate wins out or possibly even with one good loss trophy should be his...i just don't see how anyone else is even close at this point.

    if he can prove he's legit nfl passing-capable, which I'm still on the fence about but tend to think he is, he could be the first qb taken.

    I've only seen him play once but the difference is he's a real QB not a RB who just happens to throw occasionally.

    That's a sad story.

    I'm stuck in the middle of SEC country man. We don't get many K-State games here. Plus my cable has been screwed up.

    Hey Yeager...I have watched nearly every K-State game the last two years. In my opinion he is a guy that throws only when needed. No one should confuse him with RG3. He has a awkward throwing motion, but for whatever reason manages to get the ball where it needs to be. With that being said, he has become a more accomplished passer this season, but the meat of his game is hammering opponents with his runs. He is such an effective runner that it opens up the passing game.

    I am not convinced he is a NFL quality QB with regards to his arm. I am a huge K-State fan, but I just don't see it. He is a better player than Tebow, so someone will take a flyer on him. I would be happy to see a star on his helmet, but not before the fourth round.

    I have not watched them as much as you but I agree with your post.

    I think some seen him vs the WVU game and just assumed he was more of a passer vs a runner but right now a one legged, half blind bearded lady could put up good passing numbers vs WVU. :(

    That's a great assessment of Klein. It isn't always pretty but this guy has Charlie Sheen's disease - WINNING!

    He's not an NFL QB. His throwing motion is even worse than Tebow. I don't know what his role will be in the NFL...he'll definitely get a look somewhere because of his size/athleticism but he also has a TON of miles on his body and a lot of hits taken.

    Love the guy, and he really is like Tebow, only he has less NFL talent around him. He does throw the ball much better than Tebow.

    I doubt he has any role in the NFL, unless it's as some type of h-back or something. Doesn't have an NFL arm, I don't think. Not enough velocity and his motion's too slow.

    If you don't pressure the pocket, and you don't cover the receivers, there are a lot of good HS pocket passers that would be successful.

    Taking nothing away from Klein, because he cleaned our clock, but that defensive strategy is atrocious.

    He's from my home town. His little bro is also on the roster. Receiver I think.


    He does look good this year. Great system for him. I'm not sure that translates to the pros. He is intelligent and very coachable so who knows.


    I'm pulling for him. Possible Heisman?
