TCU should just expect Kansas State QB Collin Klein will play

155416359_crop_exactKansas State coach Bill Snyder said on the Big 12 media conference call on Monday morning that quarterback Collin Klein is out for Saturday's game at TCU.

OK. Just kidding. Snyder said nothing of that sort.

Snyder did say of Klein, who reportedly suffered a concussion in KSU's win against Oklahoma State on Saturday, "He seems fine to me."

Asked if Klein is going to play, Snyder said: "I hope so. I hope they all play."

At one point during the KSU game against Oklahoma State, Klein was walking around the sidelines without his helmet. That is often a sign the helmet has been taken away by team doctors/trainers because of a head injury.

"Maybe they're uncomfortable," Synder said of Klein sans a helmet.

Who are we kidding? Collin Klein may not be able to remember his own name and he would play against TCU on Saturday in Fort Worth.

KSU is No. 2 in the BCS and three wins away from completing a perfect season. He's playing.

There has not been a better college QB this season than Klein, who will never do a thing in the NFL. There is not a player who is important to his team's success than Klein. Kansas State is ranked second in the BCS standings primarily because they do not beat themselves, and their QB simply never screws up.

In nine games this season, Klein is completing 71.1 percent of his passes for 1,875 yards with 12 TDs and 2 interceptions. He is the second-leading rusher for Kansas State with 698 yards on 139 carries, and averages 5.0 yards per rush with 17 TDs.

Kansas State has not turned the ball over since it played against North Texas on Sept. 15, and have four turnovers this season. Kansas State is plus-20 in turnover margin, tops in the nation.

The most amazing stat: Kansas State has scored 111 points off of turnovers, and given up zero.
