K-State discusses penalty problems after Iowa State victory

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Bill Snyder wants to see Saturday's penalty problems solved.

Kansas State Wildcats coach Bill Snyder wasn't pleased with his team's penalty problems in last Saturday's 27-21 win at Iowa State. The Wildcats were penalized nine times for 62 yards. After the game, Snyder said the mistakes were uncharacteristic and the team needs to improve:

"It was tremendously out of character for us, we had been the least penalized team in the country and now we look like the most penalized team in the country. That's a matter of discipline. That's a matter of a lot of things, part of it is focus. That means we didn't coach them well, particularly well enough to sustain the direction we were going in regards to not being penalized."

The No. 4 Wildcats want to see improvement quickly, as one of their biggest tests of the season comes Saturday at No. 17 West Virginia. It figures to be loud, and Snyder said he wants any communication issues fixed before the game:

"I'm not so sure that it was the crowd noise, and I haven't visited with (quarterback) Collin (Klein) and our offensive linemen about it but I think it was more us not getting the calls where they needed to be and putting him in a position where he had too many decisions to make and not enough time because we didn't get plays in as quickly as we should. It was that more than anything else, just not getting in position and not getting lined up."
