Collin Klein on what he wants the Kansas State offense to look like

Kansas State offensive coordinator Collin Klein talks about what he wants the Wildcats' offense to look like. Klein: “I think to me, it's a little bit of that will be a work in progress. A little bit of that, I think we are still going to be very multiple in a lot of the things that we do. So, it could look a little different week to week even. What we're going to need that week for that defense, for that team we're playing, how our personnel continues to adapt. So, there are a lot of variables. The biggest thing – and even through the bowl game and through now has been — some of those details will get ironed out as we get closer. But it's the mentality, it's the focus, it’s the intensity and having a more aggressive mentality. You’ve got to make sure that we're wise with that, either side of the spectrum can really get you. But it's how we play, it's our fundamentals, it's our techniques, it's our mental toughness and having more of that attack mentality, I think, is the biggest thing that I hope that we go to the practice field with every day. Then, ultimately, ends up being on the game field.”
