The Kansas State Wildcats lost the final four game of the 2007 season to finish the year at 5 and 7. The Wildcats will try and turn that around in 2008.
Finishing was a major theme for the Wildcats at Big 12 Media Days in Kansas City. Head Coach Ron Prince along with Quarterback Josh Freeman, Defensive Back Chris Carney and Linebacker Ian Campbell all discussed the issue.
Kansas State had some big moments last year including a 41 - 21 win over Texas in Austin.
Junior quarterback Josh Freeman set school records for passing yardage (3,353), completions (316), attempts (499), and completions in a game (36 vs OSU) a year ago.
K-State must replace All-Big 12 running back James Johnson, a Blinn product, and All-American wide receiver Jordy Nelson.
Defensively, the Purple People of the Plains try to shore up a unit that was eighth in the Big XII in total defense.
The Wildcats will return to the Lone Star State October 11th when the take on Texas A&M at Kyle Field.
