Found November 02, 2012 on Double Coverage Football:
Another week, another dominant Collin Klein performance, and we're right where we were last Friday. Here's where we stand with a month left in the season: Book Your Flight to New York:1. COLLIN KLEIN, QB, KANSAS STATE: Klein turned in another hardware-worthy performance against giant slayer Texas Tech, turning what started as a slugfest into another blowout Wildcats win. He was efficient in the air again (the story of the last month), going 19 for 25 with 233 yards and 2 TDs. He also added 83 yards and 2 TDs on the ground. Seventy-six of his rushing yards, and both scores, came in the second half as Kansas State put the game out of reach. Klein has been at his best when it matters most, and if that helps him lock up an undefeated season he's as sure of a Heisman lock as we've seen since...well...RG3. 2. MANTI TE'O, LB, NOTRE DAME: Every year we hear about players having a "Heisman performance," whether it's RG3 completing bombs all over the place...

Heisman Watch: Collin Klein & Manti Te'o lead, Teddy Bridgewater gives media something to chew on

Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein has vaulted to the top of the Heisman contenders, surprisingly to some. I ranked Klein 10th on the preseason Dynamic Dozen Heisman Contenders list in which I described him as a "Tim Tebow prototype on the football field"; a comparison coming up often lately in college football talk. I knew that his strong running dual threat ability...

K-State's Collin Klein Didn't Kiss His Wife Until Wedding Day

The presumptive Heisman front runner, Kansas State Wildcats quarterback Collin Klein, revealed in a recent interview that he didn't even kiss his wife until their wedding day. Klein was on The Jim Rome Show yesterday and told host Jim Rome that he didn't even share his first kiss until he married his wife, former Kansas State basketball player Shalin Spani. He also said...

Klein's injury couldn't come at a worse time

MANHATTAN, Kan. The good news is that whatever it was, based on the grins Collin Klein flashed for the television cameras late Saturday night, it couldn't have been too serious. Beyond that, speculate away. When it comes to discussing injuries, Bill Snyder makes Bill Belichick look like Perez Hilton. Klein, the Heisman Trophy front-runner, missed the last quarter-and-a-half...

Collin Klein's First Kiss Came on Wedding Day, Shares More Than Just Football in Common With Tim Tebow

When you look at Collin Klein, you see a Tim Tebow clone. Both are big, strong quarterbacks known just as much for their hard-nosed running style as they are for their unorthodox, but effective throwing styles. Football isn't all the two players have in common though. The Kansas State quarterback, like Tebow, is also deeply religious. He's so religious in...

Top 10 College Football Programs Without A Heisman Winner

Hard to believe, but when Mark Ingram won the Heisman Trophy in 2009, it marked the first time in history that a player from the storied Alabama program won college football’s most prestigious award.That’s understandable, though. College football is a team sport and the Heisman is the ultimate individual award. Mutually exclusive, right?Not exactly: The six major-college programs...

Jets' Tebow, K-State's Klein lead parallel lives

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) They've never met, never even talked, but they'd probably be best of friends. Both of them were home schooled, both are rooted deeply in their Christian faith. Both were standout prep players who overcame funky throwing motions to develop into bruising, run-first quarterbacks for two of college football's most accomplished coaches. All that Collin...

K-State-Oklahoma State preview

(AP) - All that Kansas State can do now is try to achieve perfection. That's all the third-ranked Wildcats control. Kansas State has already beaten two ranked teams on the road in Oklahoma and West Virginia, and it blitzed then-No. 15 Texas Tech 55-24 last Saturday to remain undefeated. The problem is that top-ranked Alabama, No. 2 Oregon and fourth-ranked Notre Dame are also...
