GLENDALE, Ariz. Collin Klein was the picture of dejection following Kansas States 35-17 loss to Oregon on Thursday in the Fiesta Bowl. To his coach, the quarterbacks countenance was no surprise.
He wears it on his sleeve, Wildcats coach Bill Snyder said. He wears his faith on his sleeve. He wears his enthusiasm on his sleeve. He wears his leadership on his sleeve. He wears the quality of person that he is on his sleeve, and hes not embarrassed by it by any stretch of the imagination.
To me, that just makes him so real and so genuine.
Kleins incredible senior ride came to a crashing halt at University of Phoenix Stadium against a Ducks defense that answered every challenge. Klein completed just 17 of 32 passes for 151 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions, and he rushed for just 30 yards on 13 carries.
Oregons underrated defensive front was staunch at the point of attack and quick to penetrate gaps to blow up plays in the backfield, posting six tackles for loss.
