Ok-State Coordinators Communicate with Media Previous to Baylor Sport – Kansas State College Athletics



MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State offensive coordinator Courtney Messingham and defensive coordinator Joe Klanderman met with members of the media on Thursday on the Vanier Household Soccer Complicated, because the Wildcats put together to host Baylor this Saturday inside Invoice Snyder Household Stadium. Hyperlinks to video of each press conferences are above, and an entire transcript is under.
 COURTNEY MESSINGHAM, OFFENSIVE COORDINATOROn the Baylor protection..
“It is humorous once I was strolling down the steps I sort of regarded once more at their depth chart and it is like each week we’re saying the identical factor: a bunch of men that performed a variety of soccer, a bunch of seniors. If they don’t seem to be seniors they’re juniors. They bought a pair youthful sophomore guys, one’s a switch man that is a very good participant that actually helped solidify their d-line. The most important factor although, actually goes again to they’ve performed a variety of soccer and that is what looks like your complete 12 months has been like.”
 On what TCU did to trigger the Baylor secondary issues…
“If you watch their sport, that they had some wonderful performs. Not that they did not play actually, rather well so far as schematically doing a little issues, however it was extra the variety of instances you see them. Making a play that is a 30- or 40- or 50-yard chunk play was sort of unbelievable, to be sincere with you. I feel he threw for like 400-plus yards. I am unsure apart from a pair the place it was only a straight bust defensively, I am unsure most of them weren’t contested performs. The opposite factor that I feel you seen may be very few instances towards this protection do you simply exit run them for a 60, 70-yard play. They’re very quick within the again finish. Their one security, No. 22 (JT Woods) can actually get out and run and observe folks down. So, once we do get alternatives for large performs, we have to carry on enjoying the remainder of the ten different guys should hold enjoying and attempt to maintain blocks and go get a block down the sphere.”
 On his response to Coach Klieman going for thus many fourth-down conversions…
“From the very first day of once you speak to the offense, we truly placed on our purpose board that we have to be 100% on fourth down. We speak about that when Coach involves us – the rationale he is pulling that set off is as a result of he is bought confidence in us, and we have got to play quick and consider it should occur. We all know when the season will get finished, you are not going to be 100%, however the mindset needs to be. He would not be asking us to let’s roll this factor until he felt like we will get it finished.”
 On how shut they’ve been to 100% on fourth down…
“Knock on wooden now, I do not wish to spoil something, however, for essentially the most half, they have been pretty manageable conditions. For essentially the most half, guys have made performs. I would not name them any guru performs. The play this previous weekend, Sammy (Wheeler) made a very, actually good catch and Skylar (Thompson) threw an excellent ball. The scheme itself did not damage issues, clearly, as a result of I actually really feel like there have been a pair different guys he may have gone to that may have additionally gotten the primary down. Nevertheless it’s extra of the gamers enjoying quick and believing it after which making a play.”
 On who makes the choice to go for it fourth down…
“No, all these fourth-down calls are Coach Klieman who decides that he needs to take the chance. From a play-calling standpoint and deciding what participant to go along with, we sit as a employees, after which Skylar (Thompson) has an enormous hand in. ‘What can we really feel most comfy with?’ and we attempt to map these conditions out, and hopefully issues work effectively for us.”
 On the sport plan for Baylor’s Terrel Bernard and Jalen Pitre…
“Effectively, the very first thing you have to do is perceive that these are the blokes that look to actually convey strain. If you happen to watch No. 8 (Jalen Pitre) play, I am not telling you that is it is on a regular basis that they are bringing the strain, but when he will get the intuition that, ‘Hey, I’ll go fill this proper now.’ you are going to see him within the combine. It may be on a pass-pro scenario the place rapidly he is triggering off the sting, or it could be that it is a run sport. If there’s any play motion, he may simply carry on coming as a result of he performs quick and actually is disruptive. No. 2 (Terrel Bernard) may be very related from the standpoint that he is a man if No. 8 will not be bringing the strain, No. 2 goes to be the man to convey the strain. We have to know the place they’re at. Skylar (Thompson) has bought to know the place they’re at from the safety standpoint, and he and Noah (Johnson) have gotten to be on the identical web page with these guys.”
 On how particular this senior class is…
“The 2 issues on that. One, once you take a look at Skylar (Thompson), you take a look at Noah (Johnson), you take a look at among the seniors usually, these two are straightforward to stay out as a result of they’re their captains. They’ve hung in with us. They have been with us by the three seasons and never one time have they blinked as a senior class that we will assist be the answer to getting it finished. If it is in the midst of a streak the place it isn’t going very effectively, ‘I am getting issues again on observe.’ If it is instances when issues are going effectively, making an attempt to maintain folks humble and hold folks doing issues proper. These guys have been phenomenal to be round in our three years.”
 On calling the sport extra conservative after getting up 17-0 on West Virginia…
“Very a lot so. The second half I felt like, how can we be certain that we pressure them to earn their factors? Do not give them free issues, do not give them brief fields, hold our offense on the sphere. We nonetheless then wanted to get somewhat bit extra aggressive, however for essentially the most half, the way in which the primary half had gone and the way our protection was enjoying, there was somewhat little bit of a mindset of do not give them free ones. Make them earn every part they get.”
 On the reverse play to R.J. Garcia…
“Somewhat two-fold. I feel, at instances, we’re too conservative and we do not put issues on the market that individuals should defend stuff. That had occurred to be R.J. – he was in and it was his alternative. Sadly, that was one play that we most likely didn’t execute effectively when it got here to blocking the reverse itself. However we have now to nonetheless keep somewhat bit extensive open, somewhat bit extra extensive open in the case of a few of that stuff. The final two weeks we have had a few alternatives to get Deuce (Vaughn) out on what we’d name ‘throwback’ performs to the tailback that pressure folks to defend that and never permit folks to cowl over routes and bare overs as effectively. Power them to fret about it. I feel as a play caller, you have to discover that completely happy medium the place, the place do you not put your self in a second or third and lengthy however the place do you additionally keep aggressive and keep outdoors of the field sufficient to make folks defend every part?”
 On the sturdiness of Deuce Vaughn…
“I feel we bought to be sensible – like we attempt to be on a regular basis – however assume all people would say that Skylar (Thompson) and Deuce, after which you understand there’s three or 4 or 5 different guys that every week appear to step up and make massive performs. Clearly, it is fairly straightforward to level to Daniel (Imatorbhebhe) that is had two or three completely different weeks the place he is had massive performs. Malik (Knowles) has had some massive performs. Shoot, you may go all the way in which again to Keenan Garber having an enormous publish that he caught. We have to verify we get Skylar the chance to throw the soccer round, get Deuce touches in order that he can go make the performs that he makes, however but nonetheless holding the place he is not getting too many hits. Then additionally hold involving as lots of our guys as we will as a result of I do assume we have now some good expertise in our ability positions on offense.”
 On managing touches within the tight finish room…
“It is somewhat bit two-fold. One, we’re lucky that we do have a lot of guys that may make performs. Secondly, it isn’t overloading anybody man with each time it should be this or a down-the-field deal, it is Daniel (Imatorbhebhe) in there. The reason is is as a result of Sammy (Wheeler) has clearly confirmed over his three years that we have been with him that he could make massive performs and he can run with it. I imply, sadly a 12 months in the past, he bought damage on an enormous play for us towards Oklahoma State the place you may see that he may get out and open and run effectively. A pair years in the past down at Oklahoma State, he had an enormous catch for us after the rain delay that not less than sparked us somewhat bit. So, Sammy has been phenomenal for us. We have to maintain him concerned, however, clearly, Daniel has made some large performs as effectively.”
 On discovering steadiness within the offense…
“I feel it is somewhat bit two-fold. We speak on a regular basis about complimentary soccer. So, we have got to verify we perceive how particular groups is enjoying. How’s the protection enjoying? The place are we at? Then, the second factor that we speak on a regular basis about is it would not matter to me if it is 24-21 that we find yourself with the win, or if it is 42-40 that we find yourself with the win. Simply work out how when that clock says zero, we have got extra factors. So, our mindset and what we hold making an attempt to evangelise to our gamers is the underside line is wanting to come back out of the sport with a W and ensure our followers perceive that every one of us are on this factor collectively, they usually’re an enormous a part of it too. I imply, enjoying in The Invoice is particular due to the way in which the followers get after it. You possibly can see it in some the opposite groups’ offensive points that they’ve when our protection is on the market as a result of the group will get after it and it is superior.”
 JOE KLANDERMAN, DEFENSIVE COORDINATOROn the mobility of Baylor quarterback Gerry Bohanon…
“He is extremely slippery, and he is elusively quick. A much bigger physique that all the time appears to complete ahead when he’s getting tackled. A man that can run the ball on short-yardage conditions. You possibly can hit him behind the road of scrimmage, and he’ll discover a approach to get the yard that he wants. He is a superb participant.”
 On what has brought on a few of Baylor’s road-game struggles…
“Good defenses. No, I do not know that. That is their deal, however I feel they do what they do, they usually’re a stable soccer workforce.”
 On their zone-run blocking scheme…
“It is robust, they usually run effectively behind it. They’re very disciplined behind it. Not a variety of selection within the issues that they do. That is what it should be, they usually make you cease it. I feel they do a reasonably good job of scheming every workforce up with how they could align. So, that facet of it is somewhat bit completely different by way of the place you may be within the again finish. However, yeah, they will stretch you out, they usually do a very good job of defending some gamers, too, and placing folks in spots the place they will have success.”
 On in the event that they anticipated the flexibility from Reggie Stubblefield…
“I do not know that. I feel on tape we simply noticed an emotional participant. We may inform that on tape. He was a twitchy man, and we will inform that on tape. Then to take it to this stage and do it at this stage, that was the uncertainty. Coming from FCS, we knew there’s FCS gamers that would play at this stage. There is no query about it, a variety of them. Me and Coach Klieman additionally speak steadily about that, about being the small-school man with the massive chip on the shoulder. I feel that is what Reg is out to show each week.”
 On how far the protection has come all through Massive 12 play…
“We’re nonetheless a piece in progress. We’re nonetheless evolving. There’s nonetheless issues we’re studying about our defensive construction which can be the primary time for me. I feel that we’re placing ourselves in a superb place in the way forward for among the issues that we’re studying. So, to reply your query, immeasurably extra comfy simply in who we’re, and who we have now, and what we will and can’t do. I feel it is exhibiting on the sphere.”
 On the problem that the Baylor working backs current…
“They’re a superb one-two punch. You have bought a superb downhill, robust, going to slash runner. Then you definitely’ve bought a man that has somewhat bit extra elusiveness and somewhat bit extra means to hit that factor wherever. I feel anytime you have bought two guys and it is fourth-and-one with the sport on the road and you do not care which certainly one of them is in, that is all the time a scary deal. They appear recent. I am trying on the tape of final week versus the tape in September they usually look the identical to me. That is a scary deal. Actually good gamers, actually stable mixture.”
 On defensive again Jahron McPherson…
“That is simply it. He goes beneath the radar a lot for the issues that he brings to this soccer workforce. I am actually excited for him to play his final sport out right here at Invoice Snyder Household Stadium. He is clearly an amazing participant on the sphere. The issues that you just guys won’t ever see is what he is finished for this soccer workforce off the sphere. How he is introduced folks collectively, how he is been an instance for youthful gamers, not simply within the DB room however throughout the soccer workforce. How he is introduced folks collectively. I am unable to let you know how a lot I consider that child.”
 On defensive again Russ Yeast…
“Russ is one other one which has been sort of a quiet killer. I imply he has simply been a man that is gotten higher every week, a man that is been rock stable. He cares a lot about this place and has slot in so effectively right here. However he is doing an ideal job in man protection. He is been a a lot better communicator. He is very rangy in zones. His tackling has been incredible. There aren’t too many gamers within the nation which can be enjoying in addition to he’s at his place.”
 On how nerve-wracking Daniel Inexperienced’s overturned concentrating on name was…
“It occurs and it is one thing that we speak about. We coach by it. We’re making an attempt to get him to decrease the goal zone on the ball service, all these issues. Generally in these bang-bang performs, all that stuff simply goes out that window. We’re lucky. I feel that was the best name to get that picked up, however you wager we’re preaching it on a regular basis.”
 On tutoring the gamers on the best tackling approach…
“I do not know if they’re tutoring periods or butt-chewing periods, I do not know what you name them. However, yeah, we present movies. We speak about it. We attempt to drill it as a lot as we will. We’re doing that stuff in particular person and people sorts of issues, however, once more, the pace of the sport is so extremely quick. Issues occur.”
